    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview Details

    I applied on their website then about 4 weeks later I was contacted via email to set up an appointment for a phone interview with a software engineer. The phone interview is about 30 minutes. The first 5-8 minutes was just talking about the program and telling them a little about myself. The remaining 22-25 minutes were somewhat technical as in the software engineer wanted me to talk about projects that I've done and if I struggled on some what was it on and how did I go on about to fix it. Then he asked what I learned so far and some technical brain teaser questions testing my knowledge of OOP and C++ in general.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DIRECTV in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an application online as well as a test on a thursday. The test seemed difficult due to that you have to type and click a button any time something exceeds goals. Then they have scenarios of what you would most likely do to the least. It was tricky because all seemed like good answers. On monday received a phone call and was asked about salary requirements. After scheduled a phone interview for Wednesday . At the end of the phone interview was scheduled an in person interview for friday. In person interview consisted of background and technical questions. Do to previous tech experience and providing good answers the interviewer skipped the tech part and heavily asked about metrics and performance and competition and why work for this company.

    When they first called me i told them the starting rate was lower than what i was being offered by a competitor which is the truth. They looked at my past experience and told me the highest they could go up and about the differential before phone interview was set up.
