I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at DIRECTV in March 2012.
Interview Details When I initially applied to Directv, I went onto their website and filled out and application and attached my resume. within 24 hours I received a call from an HR representative and we had a phone interview. At the end of the interview we set up an appointment to interview in person. At the end of the interview they offered me the position and said they would call me within a couple of days to determine starting pay. Once they called, I set up a final appointment with HR to go in to sign my contract. That appointment was where I met about half of my new hire class since we all signed the contracts at the same time after hearing a speech about the company from the HR manager.
Interview Question – The questions they ask are pretty standard. Nothing out of the ordinary. Answer Question

Interview Details Got lead from staffing agency. Had phone interview with hiring manager. Company rejected application based upon factors that did NOT come up during interview. Hiring manager seem inexperienced in the field but talked about a lot of current buzzwords in the trade. Hiring manager also seemed to be grasping for straws as far as what he was looking for. Hiring manager took weeks to give feedback to staffing agency.
Interview Question – It was difficult to figure out what the hiring manager was looking for and/or wanted. We went from one topic of the next with seemingly little organization or structure. I asked the interviewer several questions which he refused to answer. View Answer
