I applied online - interviewed at New Corp in October 2013.
Interview Details – I filled out the application online, was contacted within 24 hours. Had a phone interview 4 days later that lasted about an hour. You then have a technical call to test your phone line and to make sure your computer meets their minimum requirements. There will be several paperwork items that need to be signed and scanned or faxed back. You will also have to go and get a drug test locally. About a week before training, you will have your final technical meeting to make sure everything is still "good" and they will install the software on your computer needed for the training and position.

Interview Question – They were all difficult Answer Question
Reason for Declining – It was a work from home customer service position for DTV which was outsourced through New. I would not have been a Direct Tv employee as I previously thought. I would have only been receiving calls from customers who were having problems with their equipment so that meant upset customers. At my expense I had to have home phone service installed, internet upgraded, provide my own computer, purchase my own headset, use my electricity to take their calls. No vacation or sick time no benefits what so ever and they were only paying $9.50 per hour and I as advised that it was non negotiable.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at New Corp in May 2012.
Interview Details –
The hiring and interview process is tiring. You would think they paid you in gold coins! Once I put in the application I got an email from Human Resources saying that, "We would like to invite you to an informal Applicant Information Session. This is the next step in the consideration process. During this session, we will give you general information about the company, the position, the requirements if you are selected for a position and the schedules we offer. This session will give you the opportunity to assess whether we are a right fit for you.".
So, I picked a time and I went to an adobe room with a lot of other applicants and they gave us information about the company.
You were given information to do an online check of your computer systems to see if they are up to spec.
If you said, okay, I will want to continue with this process you were e-mailed a link to do an online skills assessment.
You are then scheduled for another adobe meeting (this time one on one) with a hiring manager who again, in their presence do the computer check of your systems and also asks some basic questions and tells you more about the company.
Nine days later, I got an offer letter.
Interview Question – Nothing really. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at New Corp in September 2010.
Interview Details – I applied online, and recieved a call within the next hour. An interview was set up for two days later. At the initial interview I had to listen to calls made by previous CCR's and take notes. I was then interviewed by the recruiter, and informed that I did not have enough references. She also asked me to figure out my "dream hours". I returned for a second interview a few days later, and even though I gave her the hours I wanted, she put me in the 12 pm to 8 pm time bracket. It was a nice interview, although I had to move cities soon after.
