    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Cablevision Systems.

    Interview

    I applied for the Field Service Technician job through the Cablevision website. The next day I was contacted by an HR recruiter. She went over the requirements of the job and asked me a few questions concerning my job history. At the end of the interview we set up a time when I would meet the supervisors of my area. The in-person interview went smooth. I didn't know what questions to expect but I came prepared to answer the best way I could. There were two supervisors who took turns asking questions. The interview was more behavioral then personality based. At the end of the in-person interview I asked three strong questions. I feel that is what got me an offer on the spot. Seven more candidates were to be interviewed after me but I was led in to the HR manager's office and I was told I had an offer. Currently waiting for the next training class.

    Easy and engaging. Gave a lot of information about the company. Recruiter was very knowledgeable of everything. Job description was exactly what I do for previous job. The interview was more like me catching up with an old friend it was very personable and relaxing I wasn't nervous at all, whereas I'm quite nervous a lot during interviews.

The technical interview may be conducted in January next year. In all, the whole interview process is very relaxing, you only need to know what this company works on.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cablevision Systems (Shelton, CT) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Was contacted after submitting my resume and cover letter. After a lengthy phone interview had a personal interview scheduled. The recruiter emailed an hour later and rescheduled the interview a half hour earlier. Arrived at the personal interview and waited 45 minutes in the employee lounge. Interviewed briefly in person with the recruiter and was told she wanted me to interview with the hiring manager that day. The hiring manager was terrific, told me about the position, was more interested in the type of individual you were. I was told the second interviews would be scheduled in 1 1/2 weeks. A month and a half later was contacted by a second recruiter who told me she was assigned to expedite the process. After an hour long phone interview an interview was scheduled with the hiring manager's manager. This was cancelled and rescheduled a week later. This interview was conducted by him and a random report of his and consisted of numerous questions being asked by one or the another so that they could "look into your eyes" while you were answering. I sincerely hope the acquiring company teaches hiring managers like this how to behave professionally.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cablevision Systems (Piscataway, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for an HR Manager role and was contacted a few weeks later. I had an initial phone screen with the Recruiter in which general questions were asked. I was then scheduled to come in and meet in person with the Head of HR. Again, the interview was extremely general and I didn't get a good understanding of the role. I then came back a 2nd time to meet with more HR team members. Process was a bit long, and I felt like my time was wasted until the 2nd interview. They did not follow up after my interview, and I found myself e-mailing asking for updates.

    Interview Questions
