Sales Engineer -Pre Sales Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Alaska Communications in June 2012.
Interview Details – I was contacted by their HR department and it was decided that I should move forward. Phone interview with who would be my manager. Then they flew me up to Anchorage for an extended weekend. Personal time over meal with manager. 5hrs of onsite touring and interviews with every level of management, and with my peers. Another personal time with a coworker, and then I flew home. Two weeks later I was made an offer, I declined, they countered, and I accepted. After that it was a full family move to Anchorage all expenses paid.
