    Leadership Role - Viper Denver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Comcast (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Tips for the next person - If you want to get the job, do these things:

    1. Your resume should be very technically focused. A number of people during the interview process said "We only hire very smart people". Yes, This should be the expectation, but what they really meant was that smart = technical. Which was reinforced by countless technical questions that seemed to be purposely vague to see how much you know. This behavior is expected in a purely technical role. This interview was a very senior leadership role.

    2. During the initial screening with HR/recruiter, you want to be humble, honest and kind. Again, this should be the norm, but keep reading. Once you get a face to face, you need to be the same humble, honest, kind person with potential staff, and then with peers you need to bring your arrogance. I literally had more years of experience in this exact job than the peer interviewers, plus more patents, and the highest degree of anyone in the room. Yet still the peers came in hot and tried to pull me down verbally with their vague technical questions. I mistakenly continued to be humble, open and honest and that was the killer of the interview for me.

    Now, here are my tips for Comcast.

    1. You have a staff morale problem in Viper - Denver. Your inability to lead, keep prioritization remotely consistent, motivate, and protect the staff is obvious to them. You're going to have a turn-over problem in 6-12 months. I was told as much directly by staff. I would have told you this directly, except when I asked for feedback on myself after the interview you ignored me.

    2. The culture in Comcast corp. like any big company comes along with politics. You saying to me over and over again "We only hire really smart people" and meaning "we only hire people who are very technical and we equate that with smart" is short sighted. Over the years I have seen Denver Comcast teams take this same exact approach in thinking they can simply get by on their intelligence alone. All of those groups have been broken up by Comcast corp. So, either keep touching the hot stove and expect a different result or,,, get smart.

    Interview Questions

    • Comcast - Pick any technical question and leave out a few key points. Then when the person being interviewed asks clarifying questions, just repeat the question at least 3-4 times. Be as condescending as possible so it puts the person in a defensive position.   2 Answers
