    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.

    3 Interviews total in the following succession: HR Recruiter over the phone, Hiring Manager over the phone, and in-person interview with 6 peers and superiors.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview

    I was contacted through email to schedule the initial phone screening interview. The phone interview was set up for 2 days later. The interviewer called at almost the exact time that scheduled (almost down to the second). The interviewer was very easy-going and asked mainly about my goals as a software developer. While referring to the experiences listed on my resume, they asked about my interests in interviewing for various development teams. Specifics about where my technical strengths lie were also asked followed by a very easy quiz about basic programming/development concepts.

    Production Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DIRECTV (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was through a recruiter, the only recruiter they are allowed to use and it was just freelance, but they wanted me to meet over the phone with someone in LA who was never available, so finally they just made the offer. It was lower than what someone should be making contract but the recruiter wouldn't make an offer for more because it was going to be on-ongoing, long-term freelance.

    Interview Questions

    • My experience and portfolio speaks for itself, so there weren't many questions to ask, only was I looking for full-time in which I replied "yes" and they said it could be 3 to 10 months. Its been 7 months.   Answer Question
