    I have been working at DIRECTV full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work with very nice people. Senior leadership or upper management truly cares about each employees personal success and there are many programs in place to help you do just that. Great benefits and competitive pay. Culture of continuous improvement has helped aligned all employees to focus on customer experience and creates a fun and structured work environment.

    Cons

    AT&T is about take over the company and not sure what that would look like for directv and that is something to keep in mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Directv is a very well run organization and top leadership should push for sustaining culture as AT&T takes over.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied on their website then about 4 weeks later I was contacted via email to set up an appointment for a phone interview with a software engineer. The phone interview is about 30 minutes. The first 5-8 minutes was just talking about the program and telling them a little about myself. The remaining 22-25 minutes were somewhat technical as in the software engineer wanted me to talk about projects that I've done and if I struggled on some what was it on and how did I go on about to fix it. Then he asked what I learned so far and some technical brain teaser questions testing my knowledge of OOP and C++ in general.
