    Interview

    The process was very informal, uncomfortable and rash. The individual interviewing me did not appear professional and seemed irritated at having to interview anyone. I did not get a good impression off the individual interviewing me or the description of the job

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DIRECTV (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Brief 15 minutes, 2 interviewers who asked a series a questions writing down my answers. Seemed like a pretty normal interview. At the end they said they would call if offered. Got a call the next day but declined the offer because of the salary amount. Overall good company and an easy interview that most should be able to do easily. Experience was positive.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Horrible, they did not explain anything very well. The pay system is messed up and does not make sense for the technicians that do things correctly. That is not how you make money its per job which means cutting corners to make more money.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at DIRECTV (Redding, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview, promising $70k in the first year, sold the job hook line and sinker. Impossible to hit that goal. Very friendly offering a good salary, but failed to explain that pay was based on piece rate and that new hires were given lower paying installs.
