Dude, here's a tip, don't give referal's for people you don't know. A referal is like saying you can vouch for someone's ethics and morals...if you don't know them, how can you, with a clear conscience, do that ????

Okay.. thanks for the advice. I didn't think about that. I'm the type of person who likes to help. Its not up to me if a person gets hired or not, its up to comcast who does a very through background check.

I applied on Comcast's site for a project manager position in Minnesota. Does anyone have any insight as to get in touch with anyone inside for this market? Or do I just wait now (and let my resume do the talking for me) like everyone on here says? Any helpful feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You should always send a paper copy of the resume, as well, to the physical location (or nearby). That covers the bases and also shows you are thorough !

Stryker in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania said: 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.

You might not not understand abusive people. We have a lot of people dead because protective orders didnt stop them.
Saying this isnt the 70's makes me laugh.
Because today things are worse!
When someone changes their name underground due to domestic violence theres no records.
The reason for that is so the abuser cannot find them.
What you said is very offensive.
You dont know what a persons situation is. They were only on here to ask a question.
The last time I checked being a survivor of a violent crime was not a felony!

The person did go to jail. and the harassment continues.
Now she is be ridiculed for a question being asked.

If more people would respect others there would be no need for background checks!
Anyway Ignorance is Bliss for some!

The reason for that is so the abuser cannot find them.

When someone legally changes their name, they go back into their history and have the name changed on all records so in effect they disappear. This way, the abuser cannot locate them and they still have personal references as always. About the only records that cannot be changed are things like court records and military records but you can go all the way back to high School records, college records and previous employers and the credits will be applied to your new name (at least as far as references are concerned). The schools and employers will not say you (as the old name) worked there but when a potential employer does the background check the references will simply say that (new name) did in fact work there or graduate there.

Public records that can't be changed will show you simply disappeared with no death certificate and your personal records will show you have always been the person with your new name.

I work at Comcast and I dont want to work with thieves and people of questionable character.

anonymous in Colorado Springs, Colorado said: She cant give her real name. When a domestic violence survivor changes their name, They do it for safety reasons.
I have comcast and I had adelphia before they changed over. Those people answering the phones....can be rude.
I dont care if they have a diploma or not.
If they can provide good customer service, Im happy. I even think ppl who been to jail need a job. I dont want them breaking in my house for money.
My husband is in the Army sometimes it is easier for us to get a job. I still think
everyone should have a fair chance.
If more people would hire without prejudice more people would be off welfare.
I rather My tax dollars go to schools than welfare!

You dont have to complete them to pass, only do well on the questions you did answer.

So your saying someone who was victimized and almost killed is questionable.

You work with questionable ppl. They pass drug test everyday.
Just because someone has to assume a new identity for safety and mostly because they wanna live doesnt mean they are theives.

I dont trust ppl who wear jeans and very casual clothes to a interview.
Im sure most of you dont put a suit on, And I mean tie and jacket and for ladies to a suit with a jacket.
I dont trust no one no wearing interview clothes.
If you come to the interview laxed, in jeans your productivity will be laxed.
So I guess the on this forum its ok to go looking like a bum to a interview, But
its not ok when you been beaten and stabbed till you almost die, then when you recover you cant get a job.

By the way those background checks, dont always bring up convictions.
So you dont know who your sitting next to at work.

I dont understand You ppl on here, Yopur on here asking questions to get a job!

Then you belittle someones circumstance.
Is yours any better? You are on here asking how to get a job at comcast..right?

The question was asked months ago. The person got a job.
She passed a background check, not using her old identity.

I hope you all are fortunate enough to become employed also.
To those of you who really do have a positive attitude,I hope the best for you.
negativity toward yourself and others only puts you back.

Think positve! also I dont work for comcast, Dont want to work for them.
I was asking a question for someone.
I hope when you do get a job you dont take that hater attitude with you.
You have to be a ppl person, with understanding to work customer service.
You cant diss ppl. better get it together if you really want to work for comcast. They need customer service reps, not people who are gonna go off and get mad over words a person said, a person they dont even know.
I feel sorry for comcast.
If they got ppl who are so negative, I am really thinking about cancelling my service. Just from the nagative ppl on this forum. Why should I waste my hard earn dollars on ppl who work at comcast and they are not customer friendly.
I hope you negative ones dont work there.
or get a job there.
IM done on this forum. I dont feel like reading any more insensitive ignorant comments.

Everything you say makes you sound like a pompous whiner, so maybe if you get off your high-horse on the level you belong(which, last I checked, "Army Wife" falls under "General Pop.") maybe you might get a more positive response. You can't stand there and demand that people humble themselves to you or your opinion when you have absolutely no credibility. Remember, you're on the freakin' internet.

I have been involved with about half dozen name change situations of various people and I have seen first hand how the process works. It is as I have described. The reason for the name changes does not matter. All the people were able to basically disappear on public records and change their historical personal records and even the most intense and clever abuser would not be able to find them via a search. There is just no way in hell that a person will have to be completely without references in this world.

The name change procedure is very simple and can be done without the need of a lawyer. Once you have a court order, you get a few certified copies of the order and write letters to former references. The only person to whom you have to explain why you are changing your name is the judge. Once the order is handed down, people to whom you can prove you were the other person are required (it is a legal order) to change their records.

The only difference between a fellow changing his name from Jose Ortiz (example only - fictitious name) to John Smith so he sounds more American versus an abused woman who changes her name to avoid the abuser is that for the woman's case, they will fore go the need of a public advertisement in the legal section of the local newspaper.

An interesting fact about name changes is that in addition to having to swear it isn't to avoid any debts, etc there are certain names you can't have. For example, you cannot be legally named a number (12345-6789) - You cannot have names that are totally inappropriate (God - Pope Jose - Queen Elizabeth - Mac the Knife, etc). What fascinated me when I learned that was that obviously someone must have tried to change their name to such things or they wouldn't have found it necessary to specify.

Most name changes are the first name only (the person just didn't like what the parents had chosen). Changing your last name is a flag to the judge and you have to have a fairly good reason to do that. M

Changing your last name is a flag to the judge and you have to have a fairly good reason to do that. Most last name changes are as a result of a divorce and are sometimes an automatic return to the maiden name.

Sorry to inform you, but not everything revolves around you. I was speaking of your advocation of hiring convicted felons on for all jobs and to dispose of a background check. Whatever personal issues you have going on have clouded your judgement with respect to what is being said. Some things require secrecy. Can you expect someone who doesn't follow the law to follow company guidelines? You have to be realistic.

Watch out for the magical changing position. I applied for a CAE customer Account Rep position got called back for testing and interview. Once I came in 4 the interview the position and its qualification changed to a Billing rep where sales experience is strongly preferred and previous call center experience.During the interview I wasn't given a fair shot. Everyone else did role playing to prove how they would sell the products. The person I sat down with didn't even give me a chance to show that eventhough i don't have a real sales background I know how to sell to a customer, especially since I've had to call several times due to issues with my home service which half way works most of the time. The Customer Account Rep position just said valid drivers license and HS diploma and previous customer service experience preferred. I sacrificed a job I already had to interview with Comcast because I knew I was qualified for the CAE position not for a Billing Rep position. If they said from the begining that the position they were looking for had changed then I would of never quitted my other job. I wish Detroit area wasn't monopolized by Comcast so i can switch service and have nothing else to do with them period! I was warned about underlined shadiness from friends and relatives who tried to get in with Comcast before. I should've listened. So deal with Comcast at your own risk!

The job I had was part time temp. Comcast was offering full time with benefits which I desperately needed. My part time temp job had a strict attendance policy where if i was late to work by more than 59min. that was a point and if I got 2 points within my first 90 days I was fired. The day I tested for Comcast was point 1 because they couldn't work around my scheldule and I didn't want to past up the opportunity. I knew I was going to get point 2 the day I interviewed with Comcast so that's why ended up quitting cause I believed that was better than being fired. So if you are questioning my intellect on the situation so am I!

Basic math that would be on the ACT's or SAT's. If you are good with algebra you'll be fine. Actually it won't really matter how you do on the test. I've never known anyone to fail.

In all of my correspondence on the Comcast web site I used a professional cover letter and my resume is professional. I am trying to find employment at the Pottstown or Oaks Comcast in Pennsylvania. Could anyone please give me some adavice on what I am doing wrong because I really want an interview there. Alos would anyone know any good job contacts for Comcast? Any help would be greatly appreciated. My email address is SierraC777@aol.com. Anyone with any Comcast information is encouraged to email me about it--- I hope it can help me at least get a call to schedule an interview at Comcast.

I sent my application and resume by fax and they called me back the next day. I went in for the assessment for Customer Account Executive and I passsed it. The test wasn't as bad as they made it seem. It is all on the computer. You take it in a room with the other applicants. It is five parts and it is timed so no one will finish it. You have 5 minutes for 25 questions. You can use a pencil and paper. It will only take about an hour or less for everything. Comcast doesn't give you a score just recommended or not recommended. You are not penalized for skipping but you are penalized for answering incorrectly. The questions are in word or written format. An example question would be: You work 40 hours per week and your boss wants you to spend 20% of your time on reports. How much time do you have to get everything else done? The answer to this question would be 32 hours. Another example is What is wrong with this sentence: My birthday is march 2 1984. The answer is March 2, 1984. The questions are all multiple choice and none of the above is an answer choice. If you pass the test you come back for an interview. The Comcast in White Marsh Maryland is hiring 35 people and the position starts 10/22 and pays $12.85 for 6 PM-10 PM shift. I hope this helps. I know I was nervous about the test. I think after you pass the test the interview will be a piece of cake. This is the best part time job I could find for hours and pay rate. Good luck everyone.
