Internal Audit Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Time Warner in September 2013.
Interview Details Very friendly interviews. Had first round with a manager in the group followed by several with other managers/directors followed by a lunch with what would be my peers. Mostly the interview was a description of what I've done with work/school and where my interests lie. Also touched on why Time Warner and what I can bring to the table that others might not.
Interview Question – Not much in the way of unexpected questions. Had the typical "hard to answer" one of what is your greatest weakness but had practiced what I would say in that instance and came away feeling great about it. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview

Direct Sales Representative (IH) Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Time Warner in October 2013.
Interview Details Probably the worst interview I have ever been on. The "recruiter" contacted me about a month after I had applied for a different position with the company. She emailed and called several times and explained to me that I had a good background for the job due to my previous alarm tech experience. I had to take 2 buses and a train over to College Park, Queens, and take off from my hourly paid job, for the interview.
The interview was supposed to start at 1:30 pm. I got there at 1:00 pm and did not get interviewed until 3:30 pm. The "recruiter" had walked passed me and the other candidate at least a dozen times. We signed in, etc...
The interview lasted 5 minutes and all they did was rudely explain to me how unqualified I was for the job.
Why did they ask me in?
Interview Question – No difficult questions. It's a sales job for alarm systems. They don't care if you know anything about alarms. Answer Question
