    Straight-forward interview. Did not last more than 30 minutes. The person interviewing me spent a good amount of time explaining the role. As an intern I was asked what career path I had in mind. I asked a few general questions. I was not asked any behavioral or math questions, but keep in mind this was an internship interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Comcast (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview that went relatively well, but email communication before and after was not the best. I ended up not getting an offer (likely due to low GPA). Most comcast reps and employees I met along the way were extremely nice and helpful.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Comcast (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Honestly this was a eally strange interview. I got a call from a recruiter at Comcast asking me to list down my skills. After a short discussion she asked me if I would like to fly down to Philadelphia for an interview and that I did not have to pay since they will take care of the flight ticket and an accommodation. I agreed and within a few minutes I got an email with all the details needed and was asked to fly out in two days. I had to randomly take a day off from work to make it for the interview.
    The interview was outright strange. I was told I would speak to 4 of their lead developers when I got there I only talked to two people and no technical questions what so ever. The first guy told me he was not a technical person and asked me a bunch of strange questions not related to development. The other guy was a senior software engineer and he just asked me what I have done and told me he was impressed. I was in the process of meeting the third guy when the secretary randomly showed up and told me the interview was over and I could leave. I really felt like my time had been wasted since I prepared so much for the interview. I guess they offered someone the job in the process and asked the rest of us to leave since they already got someone!!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Comcast (Mount Laurel, NJ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I found the whole interview process slow and condescending. I spoke directly with the group I would be potentially working with. I didn't get the feeling this would be a pleasant environment. It's possible this manager was under a lot of pressure -- the job involved putting connections together for other large businesses.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Comcast (Philadelphia, PA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    This was a contract position being sourced by Brooksource.

    I was contacted by a Brooksource requiter that I had worked with on a previous opportunity at Comcast. After expressing interest my resume was passed along to the hiring manager and an in-person interview was scheduled shortly after. The interview was with both the hiring manager and her manager. It was pretty easy, they mostly asked questions about my background and talked about the role. The interview was about an hour long. About a week and a half later I was contacted again by the Brooksource rep to schedule a second interview. The second interview was with the hiring manager and her counterpart at Comcast, and then the hiring manager and a vendor partner. The first half with the hiring manager and her counterpart consisted mostly of role playing questions. The interview with the vendor partner was about my previous experience. This was a tough interview because the vendor partner dominated the conversation and would not give me space to correct misinterpreted answers or finish asking my question before answering. A week later I was told that the position went to a candidate that the hiring manager had previous experience working with as an MBA intern.
