    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview

    It was a 45 min phone call about what was my interest and things on my resume. The last portion of the interview he gave some technical questions. The interviewer was a Senior Mobile Engineer and he was really nice. Look online at their website to watch their internship video to get a better feel of what they do there. I heard that the interns get to dorm with other interns and you get to go on a trip to a customer's house with a technician.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DIRECTV (Boise, ID) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Online application was lengthy, but also provided a glimpse of calls and multitasking expectations. Phone interview was what you'd expect (experience, strengths, their expectations re attendance, etc). In person interview was more comprehensive: role play a phone call, navigate the computer, etc. More in depth questions about sales environment, competitive bonuses, learning styles and best coaching methods. Feedback given and sought in interview, as well as during training about the process. It is key to be yourself, bring your own personality.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at DIRECTV (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied at job fair and received and email shorty afterwards. I had an interview with one of their engineers. He didn't seem to want to conduct the interview. He sounded like he was reading off of a script, but that may have just been his personality. He also informed me of the culture and amenities that come with working for direct tv. Most questions were personality based and only about 5 technical questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DIRECTV (El Segundo, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was scheduled for a 30 minute long phone screening that actually lasted 20 minutes. There were some basic questions on experience from my resume and then a simple technical quiz. It was very laid back overall. The interviewer sounded uninterested but was very happy to talk about the internship program and campus so I might have misjudged his tone of voice. I got offered second round video interview so we'll see how that goes.
