    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DIRECTV (Naples, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    LOOOOONG and drawn out. So many signatures needed and they wanted everything faxed. Luckily, using GoodReader on my IPAD allowed me to open their PDFs (everything came that way). GoodReader allowed me to sign on my tablet and then "flatten" the document and email it back so that it looks like a fax with my real signature. This saved so much time! Everything

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at DIRECTV (Boston, MA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I had a preliminary phone screen then a skype interview. The person who interviewed me over skype ended up being my manager over the summer for my internship - so this was the person who was in charge of hiring me and wanted me on his team. He asked a few open-ended and slightly technical questions about my background, things I've learned at school, and past internships. He seemed to be assessing my knowledge and experience based on the way I answered the questions instead of giving me a coding question to solve. I liked this interview a lot more than others because I felt like I had more of a chance to display my knowledge and skills than I would have if given a coding question. Not that I don't do well coding, but sometimes if you can't solve the coding question, you have no chance of getting the job which stinks if you have an off-day. This interview assessed my overall ability which was a lot better.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you explain to me what deadlock is?
      In your past internship, did you use the waterfall or agile software development methodology?
      Do you have experience with unit testing?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I tried to negotiate for higher pay and flights because I had another offer with higher pay but they refused, saying that they have a set rate they pay for interns and they provide free corporate housing.

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview

    Applied for position online and was called the very next day and asked to do a phone interview. Afterwards was scheduled for a 1 on 1 interview the following week. The interview was very laid back and casual. Overall it was a quick and easy interview. A lady called me 10 minutes after I left and told me they wanted to offer the position and I accepted. Then she told me to be on the lookout for an email with directions for drug screening and etc.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview

    It was okay. But communication dropped out of the blue. I received a call from a recruiter one day, had a relatively positive phone conversation with them, and was even told that they would follow up with me for another interview. But I never got a call back. If they didn't want to keep pursuing me, they should have at least politely let me know instead of leaving me hanging.

    Interview

    Your contracting company sets up an in person interview. Sometimes this is early in the morning. You bring your portfolio and speak to members of the team you're planning on working with, managers, then senior employees. This is a long interview process because you have to meet and speak to everyone. Coming prepared with portfolio samples, print outs, and hand outs is best.

    It was done with a recruiter after the company agrees to take you on. This was done by phone.

    Interview

    It was an extremely short interview, they didn't seem to know what questions they wanted to ask me, and they clearly had not read my resume. The interview was set up less than 12 hours after my initial phone call, and the whole process took about three days. Beautiful office and location.
