    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need better communication with the Bangalore office - and we need to hire or train employees on project management skills to avoid production problems.
    Also need to make sure the benefits are equal to other companies

    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?"
