    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Sling Media.

    Interview Details

    2 telco interviews; standard questions such as back ground, experience and why do you want to work for Sling. 1 one to one with more of the same questions and lastly the team interview, of the 3 people scheduled only 1 could make it. Some of the questions were "what did I know about streaming technologies? Did you go to school to learn or are you self taught? How would I handle working for a 25 year old manager at my age?"

    pretty easy, nice location, slightly disorganized, should have met more people to get true flavor of company, didnt adequately explain benefits package, process was pretty fast and painless, didnt explain the true nature of the parent company relationship, dress code very business casual, focus is on results not time spent in office, job description could have been more detailed

    IT Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foster City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foster City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Sling Media in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Two initial phone interviews with headquarter and local HR recruiters to begin the hiring process. After passing the initial phone screening, I was interviewed by 4 other people with challenging project questions. I was interviewed 3 times directly with my current boss and finally the IT director at headquarters. Sling almost flew me in for onsite interviews but the schedule and airfare price didn't work out. Fortunately I never had to be onsite for face to face interviews.

    All interviewers are true professionals and they are very knowledgeable and polite. They wanted to ensure that I was ok working for a start up and fast-paced environment. They paid the most attention to ensure I could track tasks and have experience working with complex infrastructure and streaming technologies. The HR at headquarter helped to arranged the interviews and they were flexible. It was overall a pleasant phone interview experience.

    The downside was it took time a long time to make the hiring decision. I have waited nearly 3 months to hear the decision. Maybe I had to relocate from the East Coast made them worry about my job interest.

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate much about salary and package. After being interviewed for 3 months, I kinda of accepted whatever they offered. It was the job that I wanted anyway, so I didn't bargain much with the senior manager and HR.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sling Media.

    Interview Details

    there was an eligibility criteria of 7cgpa/70% n above for the students to attend the placements. presentation was followed by written test. written test consisted of analytical, reasoning , electronics and C based questions. (probably for IT students there wasn't an electronics or electrical section)
    the shortlisted students from written round had to go through 2 interviews 1 tech & 1 HR..
    in tech interview, the questions asked were almost about C for me! though other students who got different panel might have faced different type of questions!
    it was followed by 1:1 HR round , which was very friendly indeed.

    Interview Questions
    • they asked how did i solve few questions from the written round(in order to check my approach & also that i dint get the answers by fluke) they asked me to code something which i don't quite remember!
      HR had simple personal questions! no puzzles or anyhting.
