I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at DIRECTV.
Phone interviews initially--had about three of those. Then came onsite and had about 4 hours worth of interviews... Some video conferencing due to leadership being remote. Interviewed with my potential team and management.
- Discussing a difficult leadership situation. Generally managers at DIRECTV are not managers in the strict sense. There are a lot of people the title but might as well be individual contributors. This role was unique since senior leadership really wanted to ensure that the managers actually know how to manage people. 1 Answer
The recruiter vets you to make sure you will accept the offer prior to HR actually sending out the official offer. DIRECTV HR moves slowly so, it has proven necessary for the recruiters to take that step in order to make sure the hiring process is not short circuited by a surprise rejection of the offer.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at DIRECTV (El Segundo, CA) in April 2009.
The hiring and interview process are at par and as fair as any other major corporation, with multiple interviews spanning a length of a day. Although no hands-on quizzes were given, the interview questions were all aligned and in sync with the job requirements that were provided. No "wrenches" or curve balls were thrown but some great questions that test one's outlooks (with no right or wrong answers) were a part of the interview process. Hiring packets and orientation were more than accommodating and any prospective employee would have a sense of accomplishment even at the outset of starting.
- None was given. All questions were fair and to the point. Answer Question
The offer was more than expected so no negotiation was required.
