I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Time Warner Cable in August 2013.
Interview Details – It took about 3 weeks from phone interview to face to face interview. Then another month to start working. That should have been a tell-tale sign of their lack of structure, but once I finished I went to training for three weeks. As you head into the field, you are given a "quota relief" but no money in case you do not close any deals. It is some extremely technical products and if you are not from the industry of hardline telecom...good luck
Interview Question – They were very very typical outside sales questions... Answer Question
Negotiation Details – did not negotiate with me at all. The hiring manager told me 47,000 but the HR recruiter stuck it at 42,000. I was not in the position to fight it unfortunately.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Time Warner Cable in September 2009.
Interview Details – Applied online, was contacted by HR via phone. I had 4 separate in-person interviews before reaching an offer. First with HR, second with the hiring manager, 3rd was a panel interview, and 4th was with the sales director. The interviews were fairly standard, the panel interview was somewhat nerve wracking because there were 3 managers present. The final interview with the sales director was the most difficult, because he really put me on the spot. He asked me how I planned to hit my number and no matter what response I gave he told me I wasn't answering his question and asked me again. I'm fairly certain he wanted to make me uncomfortable and see if I would buckle under pressure or give up. In the end I got the job.
Interview Question – What is a reason why we should NOT hire you? View Answer
Negotiation Details – I am fairly certain it was negotiable, however I did not have other offers to use as bargaining chips at the time. I know other employees who have started off $15k more per year simply based on experience and their sales reputation.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Time Warner Cable.
Interview Details – I was interviewed by 2 managers at different times; however, the company does like panel interviews. Traditionally they like media experience but will hire without it. Growing market share is a key performance indicator.
Interview Question – How well do you handle rejection? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Most likely what is promised as a an existing book of business will be well short of what actually is billing so ask for a 6 month guarantee.
I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Time Warner Cable in November 2012.
Interview Details – I applied online and was contacted by an internal HR recruiter. I subsequently found a friend that worked there in the same department. Having this contact really helped with the interview process, both knowing what to expect and as a reference. The interview process was 3 rounds: my future boss, and 2 levels up.
Every interview was very interesting and the interviewer was very genuine.
Interview Question – If you got this job, what would be the first actions items you would take to ensure success? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Time Warner Cable in April 2011.
Interview Details – Was recruited by a national firm and then went to a 1 on 1 interview with hiring manager. The description of the job was fair although the actual job performed and duties expected was not in line with the managers description of daily activities. Went through 2 face to face interviews with more than 5 phone interviews with several different people.
The perception of the peopel was that they were corporate drones but happy with the benefits, not a lot of respect for mgmt. Work culture was explained one way and was actually the exact opposite. Not a true outside sales position in my book.
Negotiation Details – Some negotiations although manager didn't want to go much further than saying "Corporate sets our pay scale" which later was found out to be false.
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Time Warner Cable in May 2012.
Interview Details – After applying on their website, I was contacted for a phone interview. It was similar to a recruiter as they only asked basic information and did not have complete answers to some of the questions I had about the specific position. I was then scheduled for a face to face interview with my potential manager. Appreciated his upfront demeanor and very professional. The questions were mostly about my background, why I thought my skills would translate to success, and why me. As a closing to the interview, I was asked to sell myself to them on why they should hire me.
Interview Question – They emphasized that you'll hear no a lot, so have a good plan in place on how you deal with rejection. Answer Question
The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Time Warner Cable in October 2011.
Interview Details – Received a call from recruiter (from out of state) who asked a few vague questions but unable to answer many of my questions. She also informed me that I would be getting a F2F interview.
I was later contacted by a fairly knowledgeable recruiter who sounded like she was selling the job but at least could answer most of my questions. This "phone interview" was not scheduled ahead of time but I was given a phone number to call if I had further questions. I was later informed by email of the time and date for F2F interview.
The F2F interview took place in a professional environment and I felt it went well. In fact the interviewing manager assured me I would advance to the next and final level of the interview process. About a week later I received a "dear John" letter by email informing me that I was no longer being considered for the positon.
I phoned the recruiter to see if I could find out why I had been disqualified, she said she would get back with me in a couple of days but did not.....called her back and left VM......never heard back???
