Great company. Great atmosphere. Great benefits. Great leadership. Beautiful call center in Boise....I mean, I water fountain and palm trees in the lobby for heavens sake. Opportunity to grow and move up (with hard work...you can't just sit on your arce and expect everything to come to you). Now, if you are happy earning an hourly wage, with monthly incentives and good benefits...and you are great with customers, then by all means sit on your arce and provide great customer solutions and service and you can retire from DIRECTV. If you want to lead people or train people...then kick it to the next level and you will be rewarded.
I should have never left. The grass isn't always greener on the other side, but when you are recruited for an opportunity...one has to spread its wings. However, look at the grass in your own yard.

Specifics about where my technical strengths lie were also asked followed by a very easy quiz about basic programming/development concepts.
