    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Comcast (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I received an email from a manager at comcast regarding my resume on Indeed.com on March 14th asking if I was interested in the installation technician position. I immediately applied the next day. Literally the next day I got a call to set up a phone interview. At the time I didnt know what to expect, especially the number they were calling from so i missed their call. I called back and left a voicemail. So I got in contact with with someone on the 20th and there I had my phone interview. I also was given the link to take the assessment. I took my assessment on the 21st and on the 27th i received my email for an interview. The interview was set for the 30th, and on that day was a slideshow presentation on the company's history, employee benefits and so on. Had a look a the company vehicle and then came the face to face interview. After the interview, i was escorted out if the building and some supervisors were praising me for my spectacular knowledge of the company before i set foot in it. On April 3 was when I received the email stating I was selected as a final candidate and the offer of the job would be contingent passing the drug and background check. I did everything the next day and on the 11th I received an email stating my background and drug test is complete. Now I am waiting for them to tell me when I start class.

    Leadership Role - Viper Denver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Comcast (Denver, CO).

    Tips for the next person - If you want to get the job, do these things:

    1. Your resume should be very technically focused. A number of people during the interview process said "We only hire very smart people". Yes, This should be the expectation, but what they really meant was that smart = technical. Which was reinforced by countless technical questions that seemed to be purposely vague to see how much you know. This behavior is expected in a purely technical role. This interview was a very senior leadership role.

    2. During the initial screening with HR/recruiter, you want to be humble, honest and kind. Again, this should be the norm, but keep reading. Once you get a face to face, you need to be the same humble, honest, kind person with potential staff, and then with peers you need to bring your arrogance. I literally had more years of experience in this exact job than the peer interviewers, plus more patents, and the highest degree of anyone in the room. Yet still the peers came in hot and tried to pull me down verbally with their vague technical questions. I mistakenly continued to be humble, open and honest and that was the killer of the interview for me.

    Now, here are my tips for Comcast.

    1. You have a staff morale problem in Viper - Denver. Your inability to lead, keep prioritization remotely consistent, motivate, and protect the staff is obvious to them. You're going to have a turn-over problem in 6-12 months. I was told as much directly by staff. I would have told you this directly, except when I asked for feedback on myself after the interview you ignored me.

    2. The culture in Comcast corp. like any big company comes along with politics. You saying to me over and over again "We only hire really smart people" and meaning "we only hire people who are very technical and we equate that with smart" is short sighted. Over the years I have seen Denver Comcast teams take this same exact approach in thinking they can simply get by on their intelligence alone. All of those groups have been broken up by Comcast corp. So, either keep touching the hot stove and expect a different result or,,, get smart.

    Interview Questions

    • Comcast - Pick any technical question and leave out a few key points. Then when the person being interviewed asks clarifying questions, just repeat the question at least 3-4 times. Be as condescending as possible so it puts the person in a defensive position.   2 Answers

    Interview

    My hiring process took a little longer because I was working another job at the time. However the paper was simple and clear and took maybe an hr or two of time to do if you actually have the time to sit down and do everything they want in one sitting.

    Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Comcast.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email invite for a phone screen the following day.
    Although I did not get moved to the next round due to lack of experience, the recruiter that I spoke with was extremely honest and professional. I cannot begin to express how much I dislike the waiting game and this is the first experience that I have had where the recruiter responded to my check in following an interview. She explained that they were moving forward and told me why. It was not a general email template. I truly respect this company even more for this experience and I will try again at another time.
