I haven't had do job hunt for 7 years till now. I have worked as a mortgage loan officer, which gave me both customer service and sales experience. I felt that this job - APG - customer service - internet support, would be the best job match for me of any that I know of. My job references would show that no one works harder, longer, or is more loyal and conscientious than I am. I never miss a day of work!

I submitted the information online, and went to a Comcast open house where they gave me all the tests. They asked me to come in the next day for an interview. I met with a manager. He asked me 2 questions. Then He told me that I got all the questions right on the Internet test, and that I did well on the other tests. He asked if I had any questions and then told me that Nancy (in HR) would notify me in 3-5 days.

Aside from the interview seeming a little short I had thought it went well and that the interviewer had volunteered some highly complementary information.
I got a rejection letter in the mail, which totally surprised and disappointed me! I was wondering if it might have had to do with me being a woman in her 50's, or because I didn't wear a lot of makeup? I thought Comcast was an Equal Opportunity Employer?

I was wondering if it might be worth it to apply for a sales position? Would they even consider me for another position? Maybe if I can prove myself they might let me transfer to support in the future? Should I just forget about it? Thanks for any advice.

My advice is don't neglect a cover letter, don't neglect any portion of the resume. Do everything in complete form and when you go for the interview dress anywhere from business casual to formal but don't go too casual. I just went in for an interview yesterday and all the people who were too casual didn't survive the interview. This is coming from a guy who only worked one other job for 5 years in a similar field.

thats totally untrue and unfounded. Sounds like someone is just sore because they didn't get hired. Perhaps it is because you harbor these beliefs that they chose not to hire you.

um... i don't know why i got this response. i'm not sore because i didn't get hired because i never even applied for a job to this place. ? i've been working as a flight attendant for the past 11 years and was interested in finding a job "on the ground." the hard part is being over 50 and also being considered 'over qualified.' another poster commented that comcast was not much for hiring those over 50 so i wrote back that i probably wouldn't waste my time.

That wasn't meant to be directed to you, it was intended for "jph, tallahassee". Overqualification generally is associated with the expected salary, it's really their way of saying "Yeah, we don't want to pay you quite that much". It really has nothing to do with the skills, but the expected salary, and if you have the skills to go with said salary, they often puss out.

For them, they think there's no sense in hiring someone who has all the training that expects a large salary when we can grab someone at entry level, train them, and pay them substantially less. I wish you luck in your endeavors, my friend.

Thanks for your insight. After 11 yrs as a flight attendant for a regional airline I only earn $25,000/yr for hard labor and too many nights away from home. I'm thinking I should "dumb down" my resume so I can get an entry level type job at $25-$30,000 start salary. I look an easy 10 yrs younger than my actual age so do you think I have a chance?

Absolutely! Just don't sell yourself short either. Dumb down the certs that don't apply and maybe that'll be key.

Be yourself, don't be gaudy. Highlight the things you can bring to the office. If possible, talk with a current employee & get a reference. Those help some. Practice quick math in your head for handling invoices from the computer test.

Hi everyone,

Has anyone heard for Comcast doing a pre-employment test for alcohol as well as drugs? I'd really appreciate any info.
Thanks! Patty

just about every employer tests now. why would anybody apply for a job with alcohol OR drugs in their system?

Not unless you show up drunk for work, I dont see why they would test for alcohol. I only got a drug test. The test I had was monitored & they have you wash your hands before & after you urinate, as well as tell you not to flush after you finish (I expect to detect chemicals, the water was treated with something), so the bleach on the finger technique, etc. won't work. Ready Clean works wonders though if you follow the directions. It helps to work out too so you can secrete the toxins through your pores from sweating.

It likely had to do with how you answered your interview questions. If you got as far as the interview, eveything looked good up to it.

many jobs test for alcohol. testing is often random and unpredictable. it is not always given just for pre-employment. examples would be the airlines or any jobs connected to the travel industry (including truck drivers), security jobs, hospital jobs, and jobs requiring security clearance just to name a few.

I am very much in the market for a job as I was working for a company that was a service partner to tmobile and they went bankrupt after I worked there 4.3 years. I have been drawing unemployment and I need to get back to work.

Not sure if the cable side was part of it. The entire Sales Office was released in one office in Plymouth Mass. They called it " Black Tuesday " . I think it was because of the Adelphia - Comcast merger. Sad but true.

Posted this on another page but will copy here as well:

I applied for Comcast (CAE - Billing/Repair) online. FYI, my location is Concord, CA. Within 3 days I received an email for a meet and greet invitation. At the meet 'n greet, we were introduced to the supervisors and had 1 on 1 interviews (screening). After the interview I was taken to a room where we could pick a time to come in and complete an assessment test (the next day). So the next day I went in and completed the assessment test and right after the test we were told if we passed or failed. Those of us who passed were scheduled for a final interview which was either the next Tuesday/Wednesday. I interviewed on Wednesday @ 9a.m. and I felt pretty good about the interview. The next day I wrote an email to the recruiter thanking her and the supervisor's for their time. Within 10 minutes I received an email that stated, "I heard that your interview yesterday went well and we would like to extend you an offer, please come in today to fill out some paperwork." I went in and filled out the paperwork for the background check, etc. 1 week later I received an email that states "Welcome to Comcast" and I start this Friday (July 6th). The whole process is very simple and they kept me informed the whole time. The recruiter provided us with her email address and phone number if we had any questions at all. Sorry to hear that some of you didn't enjoy the same type of treatment we (all prospects at the meet 'n greet) received. I wish all of you the best, just wanted to let you know that there are some regions of Comcast where things run smoothly.

There are a lot of woman who have change their names because of domestic violence.
That you cant find a background on due to safety reasons.
How do they get hired?

Like your friend, I am also a survivor of domestic violence, and while I did not opt to change my name/SSN, also have difficulties when corporate businesses purposely eliminate those of us job candidates who use a P.O. Box address for SECURITY and confidentiality purposes. We need legislation and HR personnel's enlightment to cease 're-victimizing the victims'.

I just did a phone interview and they asked if I was aware that they do background and drug screens. I told that was not a problem./ I do have a misdemeanor drug charge for possession of vicodin which were not mine. Will that eliminate from being hired. I have not yet done a physical interview. I suspect that I will get an interview physical one on one.

The test consist of behavioral, which is personality and if you pass that portion you move to the next part. Basic skills test is the second, reasoning, math and it is timed. The best way to pass the test is to not try and answer all the questions but try and get the ones you do answer correctly. You don't want to try and get the entire test done because you won't have enough time either way.l

Sarasota, FL will be starting a new CAE training class on Monday August 13, 2007. If anyone is in the Sarasota area and looking to work for Comcast, get your apps & resume in at www.comcast.net - In some places the Comcast interview/hiring process does work rather smoothly and Sarasota FL is one of them. - I started in March and this will be the 3rd training class after mine. Come on down for great benefits and fun people to work with. It's absolutely fantastic and the comissions are killer :)

Despite the sarcasm in your response, you're actually kind of right on the money(as far as the entry-level positions go). Timing is everything with Comcast. They will take pretty much anyone who applies and has basic skills and isn't overqualified. Since Human Resources for Comcast seems to be overwhelmed(and HR always seems to be overwhelmed... I just think most of them are lazy or jaded), they usually just push through applications when they are requested to the managers and let them pick the ones they want. So yeah, if you're a graduate, former military, or just somebody who has ever run a cash register, beef up your resume, shoot it over via the website and hope for the best. Hell, I got hired, I just don't know if I want to do it anymore... I always get offers all at the same time!

Comcast n00b in Sarasota, Florida said: I was just hired by Comcast today.

I sent them my resume via the Comcast website and also through a web site that posts jobs (similar to Monster). I was called the day after I had submitted my resume to the non-Comcast website.

I scheduled an appointment to take their tests for the following week.

I took a psychological test, then they gave me the technician test instead of the CSR test by mistake, (which I passed by the way LOL, and inevitibly the CSR test.

After testing, the same day I was taken to the CSR Managers office to interview. They had me sign a release for a background check and sent me off to a drug test.

It took them 3 days from when I interviewed to call me back with a job offer. (Which I feel is rather QUICK.)

They did check all of my references, this is a very thorough company which says to me there won't be much riff raff in the work environment.

I am very excited to begin employment with this company.

Good luck to all of you.

Riff Raff is putting it nicely...ever talk to their "RETENTION" department ? LOL

Did you read any of the other million postings here about Comcast? Are you new to the internet? Go to www.comcast.com. There will be a "Careers" tab. Click on it. Find a job in the search area that fits your skillset. Apply to it like any other job posting website. Wait.

That's the only effective way to get a job with Comcast Communications. Don't go to the office. Don't fax them a resume. Don't beg the cable guy when he shows up at your house. Just submit the application online, wait for them to call you back, and keep looking for work elsewhere. Good luck, citizen.

You seriously don't believe most major company are going to hire
people in this day in age who have backgrounds that can't be verified?
She should be able to get a copy of name change from the courts.
Plus I'm at a lost to understand something as we are not in the 1970's anymore, she could have got a pfa and had him arrested for merely dialing the wrong number
However with over 300 million people in the us you can lose someone crossing the street.

It really depends on what you do for them... I mean, any job can get you 50k a year if you work enough hours, sell enough product. But if you're looking for a job that you work 40 hrs a week and kind of slack off a bit(which your haughty sense of entitlement leads me to believe, "I can't make less than..."), then you need to get a degree and look elsewhere...

To answer your original question, you can make 50,000 a year at Comcast as an installer, salesman, hell, even a csr, but they're not just going to give it to you. If it were that easy, they would call it "Super-Jackass Overpaid Employee Money-Giveaway, Inc."

good point... In NJ the DSR/CSC position they say by meeting "expected" quotas, you can make 50-60k up to 90k. Not bad! If you wana make some good money , light a fire under your a** and you can make it here.
