Don't waste your time on filling out all the forms on their web site, they will not call, you are better off working the drive thru at McDonald's.

THE COMPANY SUCKS AND THE EMPLOYEE TURN AROUND RATE IS RIDICULOUS. THEY DONT CARE ABOUT THEIR EMPLOYEES AT ALL..

worked there as a temp in oakbrook,management is horrible and treats employees like s**t, don't you realise they are always hiring ?? that says a lot about a company with that kind of turnover.they use fellows staffing to get people and fellows let them railroad the employees too.you apply for positions and never get called, the employees complain all the time but it is hard to leave because they never give good reference to past employees.

I applied for two positions with LMC and got in. Took some time as they appear to do things slowly but I got the gig in only my first attempt at site.
Try getting this type of results from say, Boeing or Microsoft.

How long should I wait before just moving on to other opprotunities? 2-3 weeks?

Don't wait. Keep applying. I've made that mistake before and it only lengthened my job search. Best wishes - you'll get something soon.

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.

Hey Marcus I have a meet and greet for the same positon sept 13th... what kind of assessment test was given for that position??

Marcus in Lafayette, California

The assessment testing is done after the meet 'n greet. They will schedule you after the first interview which is during the meet 'n greet. The assessment test is a personality test which is simple (we got as long as we wanted for that test) and the assessment test is mathematical stuff and simple logic. They give you very little time 15 minute sections. The best thing to do is answer what you can and make sure that what you answer is correct. They don't expect you to answer all of the questions, but they expect you to get the correct answers for the ones you did answer. After you finish the assessment test, they will run your results through their computer and if you passed they will schedule you for a final interview. If you nail that, then they will extend an offer. Good luck!!!

Actually, you are incorrect. I fill out a application online and they call me in for the test. I did the interview today. I hope i get the job.

What # did you call. One of the #'s listed is for the DSR only (door to door sales) is you called that 1800# and talked to Leah or Kelly then you called the wrong place. Comcast uses this system called brass ring. you will need to make sure that you have gone to Comcast.com and uploaded your resume. that is the best way to go if you are not looking for the DSR. If you have alrteady done that they I would keep sending my resume for an opeing that i see until you get a person on the phone, once you have then on the phone send them your resume directly and keep them on the phone until they can confirm that you have it.

When I was waiting these two weeks, they did an extensive background check and had some company perform it. They found exactly when I had what jobs, called all my references and had me take a drug test the day I was given the position.

The full blow background check was a little stressful since they called me a couple of times asking me to confirm certain things about my job history, and they couldn't find a record for one job since I guess that job didn't put stuff in whatever records they were checking, so I had to have a co-worker or supervisor from that last job confirm I worked at that time. Then they couldn't get in contact with some of my references, and they had to all be professional references, so it was a little difficult getting some since I am only 21 and most jobs I had were just that, job. So most people I worked with at the stores I did were gone and could get them as references.

But, I start tomorrow in training and am excited for orientation. Actually, this Thursday we're all meeting at an expo center here in Sandy, UT for an all employee meeting where they're giving us breakfast and telling us what the plans are for Comcast for this next year, which kind of surprised me I was going since I just got hired.

What really made me want to work for Comcast is how nice the Sandy, UT building is and the atmosphere. The employees sounded happy and glad to work there and the benifets are amazing. 401k 6% match, paid-time off with flex days and floating holidays, double-time and a half for working holidays, great commision which sounded low stress on sales since it's all inbound calls and we were told to never nag the customer if they didn't want to buy something, and all the discounts and medical/dental that covers 85%.

In Utah, Comcast was rated one of the best companies to work for in 2005 and 2006 by the workers. Seem like in some states, Comcast isn't very nice to their workers, but that's all with how management is.

Hi, I'm also interviewing for the internet help desk position. Would you be able to tell me what I can expect on the assessment test and what the job intails?

I applied for 5 Communication Technician Positions over the last month or so in the in the Twin Cities area (St Paul/Minneapolis), I have been in the industry for over 4 years and im well qualified, maybe too qualified for the entry level positions im applying for. I'm looking to relocate from Duluth to anywhere within the 40 miles of the cities.....but I can't even get a call. I tried phoning office directly, Broklyn Park, got an answering machine everytime, left message no return. Anyone out in that area give me more advice on this....maybe network with someone that knows someone....im not sure

Sorry about all the bad experiences you people are having.unfortunately,there are no straight answers to any of your questions for the hiring process in every state varies.but the fact that a person should relax before the assesment test and try to answer all the questions as best as he or she can.i took that test before and they dont focus on math that much and i was hired with 3 people older than 50! matter of fact one was 63.so,that being said you should have no prob but to be on safe side brush up on your math there are lots of free sites out there.

Hello,
I am near Pittsburgh, PA and I am thinking of applying at Comcast for the Customer Retention Rep. position. Can anyone give me some insight about this job like hours, stress level, pay scale?

Any advice or tips anyone can give would be great. I've been working as a teaher for 8 years now and I feel I need a career chage! Thanks in advance.

for everyone who is having difficulty getting hired, don't discourage potentially good employees from applying. there are a lot of knuckleheads who work for this company who only got hired on because they knew somebody who knew somebody, etc. and i agree that it needs to stop. i got hired with absolutely no references or connections, no cable experience, just a really good-looking resume and an awesome interview. that and i spent five years in the marines so i probably have a great work ethic(its like having an accent, i really can't tell the difference).

a positive attitude and good personality with the supervisor who interviews you will do about 70 percent of the work. just because you've contracted for 10 years you may be another paycheck collecting piece-worker who just wants benefits. you think they don't already know that? and who the hell wears jeans to an interview? do your damn research, don't go to a job interview looking like just got done tailgating.

Do not waste your time unless you think $10.75 is great pay...HA HA sorry, But in 2001 I started out $11 hr @ Lowes for a cashiers job in Tampa Bay FL! It is not worth your time! Unless you just got out of High School and you think this is a great rate of pay. Please don't star out this way! You will be stuck for the rest of you career

If you list a current position (temp job) on the online job application, will Comcast end up contacting your current workplace? The reason I ask is because I don't want my current workplace to know I'm looking for other work.

they usually don't until they've touched base with you. its just part of the reference check, but you can tell them you'd prefer that they don't contact former or current employers

Can someone please help, I was offered a job as an outside sales rep last thursday contingent upon the drug test and background check clearing. It's been a week and no word yet and I checked my online profile and it said 'not hired.' Is this because they havent finished my background check yet or because something came back negatively not allowing me to be hired? I haven't been contacted by them so I'm very nervous as to what's going on bc there should be no reason by background check doesnt clear smoothly.

Comcast touts itself as a family company. This is for 2 reasons, it was started by Ralph Roberts and handed down to his son Brian. Nepotism is rampant throughout the company. If you're not related to anyone, you may still get hired. However, your career options will be much harded and more rewarding personally.

The other reason Comcast is considered a family company is that Comcast owns several companies. Getting in with Comcast may make it easier to get on with one of those companies.

Comcast does offer great benefits. However, with the negative attitude towards their customer service (some of it warranted), this can be a big negative.

That being said, if you like a challenge and don't want things just handed to you, then I encourage you to apply and make a difference.

Mesaba24 , Do you work out of Ann Arbor? I am going for a TSS also, but have not recev'd a call. it's been 7 days (not including Labor Day) and I haven't heard anything. How were you contacted? i'm SO anxious. i have a squeeky clean record, but I do have a termination in the past. Do you think that this will be held against me? Also, I am currently employed with a temp agency. instead of the temp agency, I put down the company in which I was temp. hired for. Could this be a hold up?

You should already be moving on to other opportunites. Or rather, since this is so far in the past, I hope you were moving on with other opportunities. Don't put your eggs in one basket. You can't ever depend on these big companies for anything.

I got an email back from CARCO < Which is the group that does the background checks, They of course asked for explanation to the situation so I told them everything. Now it is up to the Comcast recruiter to hopefully look at my job qualifications and how well I am suited for the position rather than my past mistakes.

Blessings your way!

Hey Marcus,

I know this was forever ago, but I'd like to know if you were started off through a staffing agency, and if you don't mind sharing, your initial pay rate. I am only interested because a staffing agency contacted me, and I was not sure if that is the "only" way to get hired on at Comcast or if it is better to just wait and see if Comcast reaches out to me directly for a possible better rate of pay.
