Application

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Time Warner Cable (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Employee referral resulted in an in person interview with the hiring manager-During the interview the hiring manager was very cordial and personable, complimented me on my resume style and overall experience. I was called for a 2nd interview a few days later-this was with 2 managers at once whom went thru my resume line by line and asked me to describe and validate all experience and achievements. Very friendly although one manager yawned repeatedly. Called back for 3rd interview with director and hiring manager-also friendly with specific questions concerning sales strategies.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Time Warner Cable.

    Interview

    The best way to get in is to reach out to a current employee. Depending on the position you may have between 2-5 interviews. Some hiring managers may not be real responsive as they are buried with day to day activities.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    None, set salary.

    Account Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Time Warner Cable (Milwaukee, WI) in June 2014.

    Interview

    They brought me in twice and did one phone interview. It was streamlined and carried out over about 3 weeks. On one occasion I was given the opportunity to speak with one of the employees at the branch and he was told to be honest about the job, and I feel that he was. Everyone was forthright about many of the challenges, but not all of them. A rosier picture was painted than the reality, but not I wouldn't call it grossly inaccurate.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Time Warner Cable (Portland, ME) in August 2013.

    Interview

    It took about 3 weeks from phone interview to face to face interview. Then another month to start working. That should have been a tell-tale sign of their lack of structure, but once I finished I went to training for three weeks. As you head into the field, you are given a "quota relief" but no money in case you do not close any deals. It is some extremely technical products and if you are not from the industry of hardline telecom...good luck

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    did not negotiate with me at all. The hiring manager told me 47,000 but the HR recruiter stuck it at 42,000. I was not in the position to fight it unfortunately.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Time Warner Cable.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 2 managers at different times; however, the company does like panel interviews. Traditionally they like media experience but will hire without it. Growing market share is a key performance indicator.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Most likely what is promised as a an existing book of business will be well short of what actually is billing so ask for a 6 month guarantee.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Time Warner Cable (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by an internal HR recruiter. I subsequently found a friend that worked there in the same department. Having this contact really helped with the interview process, both knowing what to expect and as a reference. The interview process was 3 rounds: my future boss, and 2 levels up.
    Every interview was very interesting and the interviewer was very genuine.
