Satellite Technician Interview

Satellite Technician
Thousand Palms, CA (US)

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at DIRECTV in August 2014.

Interview Details Initial interview went great and I felt I had a good chance at the position... I completed the drug test and was then contacted to do a physical test well the day of the physical test I was contacted by the backgrounds investigator for some information he ask that I fax over some paperwork regarding the issue on hand so I did and then I completed the physical test... the next day I was contacted again and was informed that I was ineligible for the position... So I went through the entire process and spent money on faxing papers when the whole time he could have advised me of that before I continued on to the physical and not have to fax any paperwork...A complete waste of time and I did not receive any form of reimbursement on my money spent on faxes by his request.

Inventory Control Planner Interview

Inventory Control Planner

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at DIRECTV.

Interview Details You will have to apply for any position thru the online job posting system. The HR group will screen candidates and can take some time to hear back from unless the position is needing to be filled immediately and even then can take a week or so. The first conversation will be a phone interview with a HR recruiter and then if they like what they hear they will pass it on to the hiring manager to determine if you get a face to face interview. You could also have to go thru a second phone interview before the face to face if they have a significant amount of possible candidates.

Interview Question – Most of the questions were fairly expected.   Answer Question
