    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SiriusXM (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews. All were pretty easy and questions were focus at the specific job at hand. The people seemed pleasant and pretty knowledgeable. I brought in work of specific projects I've handled and have more experience than necessary for the role. I could handle this role in my sleep. There was not a single difficult question or topic about the responsibilties. Even though I thought it went well, I was not offered the position. HR would not/could not provide any feedback as to why. The position is still listed on siteboards 3 months later.

    Part-Time Music Programmer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SiriusXM (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely long and tedious, with the company constantly stringing me along. Had my first interview on 10/28/16 and went very well. Made it to the next round and it went well too. Then was told to wait for the third round, which was supposed to be a formality with their VP. Email came through telling me to be hold out to schedule the third interview, with the ending "excited to add you 3 to the team." Then waited two more weeks with no response from Sirius. Finally, third interview happened and then it was radio (pardon the pun) for two more weeks until a few days ago when I was told they had decided to go in a different direction. Nerve-wracking and no explanations ever. This came in on 12/28/16. Exactly two months since my first interview. Unacceptable and rude.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SiriusXM (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    6 interviews, 2 separate trips to their offices, multiple phone conversations, countless emails and in the end they passed on me for a position I was qualified for and gave no explanation as to why. Zero feedback. I found this experience to be incredibly frustrating given the amount of time and communication put into this process.
