    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at SiriusXM.

    Interview Details

    Technical screening and in-person interview with 8 people. The in-person interview was 2 hour long and 6 people asked questions. The recruiter calls back after 2 days and says that interview went really well and team is deciding on the salary and it would be lower than what was discussed. Sends me email postponing for 2 weeks and informs that they did not want to hire. Very unprofessional company.

    Interview Details

    Had a single telephone interview which lasted 10 minutes. I was then scheduled for an in person interview. This had to rescheduled for the following week when an 'emergency' at Sirius forced the hiring manager to go out of town. Eventually The rescheduled was canceled when I was told that Sirius has placed all development 'on hold'.

    Commercial Imaging Production Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at SiriusXM.

    Interview Details

    Sent resume and cover letter. Next, their computer application submission program informed me, via e-mail, that my resume was being considered for the position. I kept contacting HR each week for more information and to prod them that I was very interested. After about 6 weeks (if not longer) of waiting and e-mailing them, I was given a skills 'audition'. After the audition was approved, I had a phone interview, then a face to face interview.

    In preparation, I did a lot of homework about the company and the people who would be at the interview. I found all of the information online, studied for two days before hand and had several questions prepared. On the day of, at the interview, I received a tour of the facility and learned more about he history of the station and what would be required of me. I knew more about the interviewers than they knew about me, via Linked-In, Twitter and Google, which felt nice and probably aided in me feeling relaxed at the interview. Everyone was pleasant, good natured and welcoming.

    Interview Questions
    • The unexpected question was in being asked to submit a production, VO & copywriting skill audition based on old SiriusXM commercial production orders.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Told HR all the past experience I had in audio/VO/music production. Make sure you list hourly past pay, not project based pay. They don't consider project based pay when configuring a base salary. They consider hourly past pay only.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at SiriusXM.

    Interview Details

    Phone call from hiring channel manager. Told I would be contacted by show producer/host. Producer called me, then the next day the host called, and shortly after the producer again. Both had pretty general questions about my background in radio, programs I knew, my work goals, etc. All pretty easy going and non stressful interviews, all by phone.

    No contact until I was told I was now in the background check process. After this was completed I was offered a position by the HR and started the hiring process.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at SiriusXM in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted immediately after submitting my resume and called in to meet the hiring manager, then a week later met the VP. That is when the process stopped. I was told they wanted to make a decision in a week. I followed up with HR weekly, then monthly. The responses from HR got increasing rude and terse. Finally 4 MONTHS after my final interview and only after following up I was told the hiring manager decided to go with another candidate. A couple months later I saw the job reposted so I reached out to the hiring manager and got one of the rudest replies from any HR person I've ever seen.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at SiriusXM.

    Interview Details

    First I met with their HR dept who were extremely friendly. They just asked all the basic question getting to know you. As long as you aren't to socially awkward this part is a breeze.

    Then we got sent to a small conference room where we met, individually, several senier members of the QA team including the director of the whole dept. You should expect some technical question. Read up on Quality assurance as well as the agile and waterfall systems development model. They will ask you the typical questions such as what is a weakness of yours and what can you bring to the team as well a "google interview" question such as "how many hotels are in NYC".

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember to many specific questions. They arent looking for people who know it all already they really just want team players.   Answer Question
