    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at DIRECTV (Tulsa, OK) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The application process itself was more in-depth than what I have previously experienced. There were a lot of actual job scenarios and timed content to get through. The first interview was a scheduled phone interview. It was nice to have a couple days to prepare instead of just a random phone call and on the spot interview. At the end of the phone interview, I was invited to a face to face interview a couple days later. At the beginning of that, they take you on a tour of the facility and ask you a few questions during that process. This was a new and different experience than what I have previously had at other companies. At the end of the tour, I was asked the "normal" interview questions and was then given the run down on benefits, shift schedules, etc. The whole process was much more thorough than any other interview I've had.

    Interview Questions

    • I did a lot of research on DirecTV and interview questions prior to the interviews so I was pretty prepared for all of the questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The only negotiations I did were about the work schedule and not wanting to work overnight. I was able to get a schedule that works well with my home life also.

    Interview

    Very quick hiring process. I received a phone call within 72 hours of submitting my application. One face to face interview with the position being offered at the end of the interview. Typical entry level interview questions. Human Resources rep does a great job laying out the specifics for the position and what is expected of you.

    Interview

    Average interview. Recieved a phone call the day after I filled out my application and had a brief phone interview. Basically the phone interview verified the information on my application then asked for explanations from the answers I gabr on the personality test taken while filling out the application. Had an in person interview the next dag, I was given a tour of the call center, then taken back to HR for the actual interview. Pretty standard questions such as "tell me about a time you had an upset customer and how did you handle it." Was offeres the job on the spot.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at DIRECTV (Thousand Palms, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Initial interview went great and I felt I had a good chance at the position... I completed the drug test and was then contacted to do a physical test well the day of the physical test I was contacted by the backgrounds investigator for some information he ask that I fax over some paperwork regarding the issue on hand so I did and then I completed the physical test... the next day I was contacted again and was informed that I was ineligible for the position... So I went through the entire process and spent money on faxing papers when the whole time he could have advised me of that before I continued on to the physical and not have to fax any paperwork...A complete waste of time and I did not receive any form of reimbursement on my money spent on faxes by his request.
