    Executive Compensation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at DIRECTV (El Segundo, CA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Very poor recruiting process. Was specifically recruited by DIRECTV for this job and never had the courtesy of an email or phone response despite repeated follow-ups. DIRECTV does not "get" that applicants are also customers. Recruiters need to be held accountable, especially when the applicant can clearly perform against all standards. I've switched from DIRECTV for this reason.

    Interview Questions

    • Could not even get a response from their recruiter. Very unprofessional.   Answer Question

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DIRECTV (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Disorganized. Unprofessional. Made to wait. No clear expectations of duration of interview. No clear path of role and responsibilities. From phone interview to face to face the position changed. The interviewer kept saying he was trying to keep me 'off guard' and 'on my toes.'

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected question was - how long did it take for you to get here today - as if my commute time was going to be factored into their decision.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The management team I met with was extremely stressed and kept talking about how stressful their job was and how business is declining. Additionally when I asked about training - they said there was none BUT I needed to be up and running immediately. I felt there would be no support and high expectations which would lead to failure.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in El Segundo, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DIRECTV (El Segundo, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    It was fair, I met about 6 people, I was asked standard interview questions plus given the chance to prepare a presentation. Everybody was professional, friendly, and welcoming. The position was pretty clearly laid out although that definitely changed over time and it became evident that there was not a clear vision or need for the role in the broader organization

    Senior Systems Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DIRECTV (El Segundo, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interesting approach to an interview modeling the actual job requirements on micro scale. First you got a fairly simple set of requirements for a project to design in 24 hours. Second they changed the requirements for a revised design - another 24 hours. A phone interview and design walk through. Finally an in person interview, design review and leading an impromptu whiteboard design session.
