    I have been working at DIRECTV full-time (less than an year)


    I like being out in a store talking to people about saving money and giving them a better TV service


    Standing for 6 - 7 hours a day can be challenging but being about to move around the store helps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training is only 2 days and then you are out in the store and when things start to happen and the trainer is busy with a client you need more help getting the applications right and filling out the contract.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview Details

    A staffing agency interviewed me and setup a 30 minute phone interview with DirecTV. After my phone interview, I was brought in for an onsite interview. I was told to set aside 3 hours for my onsite interview and it took approximately 2 hours to answer questions from 3 different team members. I thought I was going to be bombarded with questions, but I believe the interview process was also making sure I wanted to fit in the culture of the team as well, which made for a refreshing interview environment.
