Do you work at Comcast? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

good thing about comcast is when you do get your foot in the door it is up to you where you go with your pay
and you dont have to worry about putting salt on the fries after you take the drive thru order could be that some are jealous
think about no harm done
just facts
but i also believe you do what you are happy with
if you dont like your job you will not go anywhere with it

good luck to all

It helps to know someone. You still have to go to the websire and post your resume but knowing someone will help you get that interview. I have been with the company for over 2 years now and I love all the people I work with. We work hard but we play hard too! Good luck to you.

These jobs aren't real, they just post them to justify the job of the HR, Dept. and if they do, then you have to be part of the "Good Ole Boy Network" to get an interview.

you can pick which location you want to work out of, but then after you've been in one position you can transfer anywhere you'd like after 6 months.

the jobs are stressful but the free services and great benefits are worth it.

and knowing someone DEFINITELY helps.

I worked for their recruiting department as a temp and 2 weeks later they "had found someone else" and my assignment was cut. I feel sorry for those who try to become customer service reps cause you get the shi****** hours with s***** pay to deal with b******* cable customers. and if you come you have to take their dumb test and if you fail you can't apply again for another 6 months. comcast is retarded, they charge wazoo on your cable bill and pay crap to their employees.

IF you need or want to make money quick the Comcast Sales reps positions are paying pretty good right now. Thier new phone, internet and tv services is selling pretty good and the new sales reps are making good money.

Good Lord, that's horrible! Sounds like she has already been through enough!!!! (She needs a break!)
That is a good question. They need a HS diploma? That's crazy. I wish I had some good advice, I'd give it. what I CAN say is that these background checks are a joke. I see their motive, but they can get a "crimanal" background and I am confident she'll pass. After that and she has the skills, why do they need a HS diploma?

She will be in my thoughts and prayers!

I had an interview in June of 06 for comm tech I position. I applied online and within (2) weeks was interviewed. After meeting with the hr rep for about an hour, I was then sent to a cubicle to take what I have to call the most idiotic computer generated test ever devised. This horsebleep testing took another hour to complete. I felt as though I were applying for a high level government position. After the computer testing I was then led to a room where I was given a face to face interview with the hr director as well as the installation sup. They asked almost the same questions that were covered on the computer tests. Now mind you I had already listed all of my skills and knowledge in the cable industry (13 years). After that final hour of "questioning" I was released back into the wild. I had never felt so uncomfortable in an interview in my existance on this planet. Two weeks later I received a "Dear John" letter from Comcast listing the reason for my continued non-employment with said company, "Over Qualified". It is apparent that Comcast will only hire those without any skills while coninuing to gouge the consumer with less than effective customer service. By the way I scored a job with a contracting company within the same Comcast system and am making more money than I would have made had I been hired by Comcast. Thanks Comcast and keep on hiring rejects and idiots, they keep milk in my fridge!!!

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?

Yep, they do a full background check. I had a problem with them verifying my college degree (I had forgotten to list a former married name on my background check paperwork) and it took a simple phone call to the college to verify with that name. All info is confidential, and you *can* list all names you've been known by, so you *must* be honest on the background check paperwork and list that name. Incidentally, I am 50 and graduated college in 1980... none of the records at the college were electronic from that time period so they had to research once they got the right name... but all in all, it worked out ok.

Oh good lord, of course she can...that is, IF she wants the job. I too was the victim of domestic abuse -- I had a skull fracture compliments of my-then husband and I darn near died (I was in the hospital a considerable length of time) - but I gave them the name I graduated under and all was well. It's just a matter of does she want the job or not? Having lived through it, I know how frightening it can be but sheesh, you need to live your life and get over it...

A person in the Comcast recruitment department found a resume I'd put online (probably careerbuilder or monster) and phoned me to ask if I was interested in a position they had open. I was, so they scheduled a phone screener...then I did a phone tech screener. Those went well and I had a face-to-face interview. Pretty standard process although I was quite surprised they phoned me. The process took less than two weeks from the initial call from the recruiter to job offer. The background check took an additional week and a half, but would have been much quicker if I hadn't omitted a former name

If you're interested in an Account Management position, try going through a staffing agency like Burnett Staffing or Primary Services or others. Call other agencies to find out if they recruit for Comcast. You'll be working directly for Comcast- the agencies only recruit for them. Houston, TX

You know that's a bunch of crap. It never happened and it never will. This fool just post here trying to be funny, and he is a dumb***. At least 2 interviews and wait more than one month before they will call you. Unless this fool is *********.

When interviewing for any company your attitude makes a huge difference. Comcast is in fact hiring like crazy right now for a braod spectrum of positions. You cannot apply online at my website, but if you have questions send and email to and put in the subject, looking for a Comcast position. My staff will pick up the email and see if they can assist you.
Good luck.

Don't mess around with these guys.

Before applying, make sure to read the job description!

I know people at Comcast.....people who will verify that I'm a skilled worker who will benefit the company but they won't hire me. I've had my resume sitting in a database for 6 months and I've applied for several jobs....no interviews.

Why? I don't have a high school diploma and have not got around to getting my GED either. However, I do have higher education which I paid $12,000 for but that school has since closed and the education pretty much amounts to nothing.

I have over 7 years solid experience and this is the only thing stopping me from getting an interview. Sad :(

I have worked for Spotlight (the ad sales division of Comcast) for 5 years. As with every company it has it's ups and downs- but they have great benefits and believe it or not, they really do want to take care of the customers and employees. The best way to get into an opening is to go via the comcast.com website and into the career area. You can search the jobs and apply directly there. Anyone trying to get into Comcast these days are all sent there to start. Good luck and be persistant!

how can you not pass the assesstment exams? I had little time to complete with the multiplication and addition subtracting section. How can you pass an exam like that?

I think I did terrible on the assesstment test but HR manager was really friendly and told me that no one finishes and told me not to worry about speed but accuracy but 2 minutes is sort of steep I think I answered 5 or 6 answers right. After the exams she was asking me if I had any questions but she seem interested in hiring more techs so maybe I may get the interview I dont know. What are you thoughts?

Kael> Yes they do. And most often if you have any kind of criminal record (not including stuff like minor driving offenses like speeding) they may interview you, but if someone is just as qualified with a clean record...forget it. I worked in their HR department for 2 weeks I know how this crap goes around.

I think it depends on the position you are applying for- but just be honest. If you apply online- there should be a question- but I think it is for felonies. Good Luck!

Comcastic Noob in Sarasota, Florida said: Not necessarily a bunch of crap. I had a phone interview with HR and then interviewed with the CSR manager the next week. They sent me off for my drug test and I was hired a week later when that came back.

I am starting my 4th week of training as of Monday. So, their practices my vary from state to state. They are also ramping up in my area and packing them in one training class after another since January.

Believe what ya want, I am a proud comcaster. I can also proudly say 100% on my billing COL.

Good luck to everyone applying.

I applied 2 days ago and was called yesterday for an interview. I agree with Comcastic Noob, it probably depends on the area you are with. My present job hired me the same week they interviewed me, so it is possible.
