    I have been working at Comcast full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at Comcast has given me the opportunity to develop myself; take the time to grow and learn, and that was really important to me during the time in my life when I joined the company. If you have the drive and ambition, there are a ton of ways in which you can grow into a leader if that's what you want to be. I took advantage of the continued education benefit and am finishing my masters degree now... I also joined a couple of the employee resource groups which offer seminars and networking events that support your professional profile. Listen, I'm not a total nerd. The point of my post is that this isn't a company you join and just stay stale within. They encourage your growth, but it's up to you to make it happen. Not only this - it's pretty exciting. We're busy and we have big jobs to do. My salary is in the top percentile for my industry but not only this, I again get the continued education (which is ~$6K/year) plus free cable/internet, top health care benefits and a truly balanced lifestyle - which is rarely the case within the Tech industry.

    Cons

    Telling people you work at Comcast triggers 2 typical responses: 1) A big hatred rant on customer service 2) A how do I get my foot in the door?

    The reputation of the company is difficult, but the style of the company is to stay humble - I've never seen the company defend themselves against the harmful and discrediting news that exists. I personally think they should defend themselves a little more - they are between a rock and a hard place in many instances of service. I personally experienced visiting someone's home where the issues they were having with their connection was due to a tree root growing into the cable lines which had been their for over 20 years. Things like that cannot be diagnosed over a phone call. It's hard work in the field for sure. Being a part of the corporate side sometimes we're too disconnected from what's happening on the frontline. So I think the size of the organization comes with its complications, but again if you're a working professional looking for an exciting, robust and sexy career, you can comfortably have it here.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Comcast.

    Interview

    Writing this in hopes of helping someone find the information that I failed to find. First step was applying online. Within the first week I was contacted by a recruiter to set up a phone interview, which was a few days later. The phone interview consisted of some basic background questions in relation to the job which you are applying for. The recruiter told me directly on the phone that she would be sending me to the next round of interviews ( in person) which was almost two weeks later. I interviewed with two people and from what I gather these two are closer to whom you will be directly working with/for. A majority of questions were from a piece of paper that each interviewer had. ( Tip- do the best you can to answer each question in depth and remember that it is ok to have them repeat the question or ask if that was a thorough enough answer). The 3rd and final interview with with a total of four interviewers. This was pretty much the same concept as the 2nd interview with asking questions from a sheet as well as individual questions to get a feel for your personality. In all it took about 5-6 weeks for the entire process.
    My advice- be confident and patient. The process is long and can make you feel defeated at times but Comcast is doing a thorough process of making sure they pick the right candidate. Look sharp for your and be relaxed for your interviews. I really do hope this helps someone! Good Luck!
