Very Easy Interview

Human Resources Administrator Interview

Human Resources Administrator

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at FairPoint Communications.

Interview Details – Very thorough phone screen. On-site interview with team members that asked standard interview questions. Seemed chaotic. Small space. Not very professional in appearance. Small tour of the small facility and was sent on my way. I was too prepared with resumes and they did not want them.

Interview Question – What would be your dream job if money was not an object?   Answer Question

Sales Engineer Interview

Sales Engineer
Manchester, NH

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at FairPoint Communications in July 2010.

Interview Details – Each manager has their own preferences and style, but in general you will have one or two phone interviews and one or two in-person interviews. They do an extensive background check to verify the accuracy of employment applications and resumes. Be honest or you will not pass the screening. Most positions allow candidates which do not have college degrees. If you don't have one be honest about it.

Interview Question – None of the questions were unexpected or difficult. My interviewer spent more time "selling" the position to me than asking tough questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Each manager that is approved to offer a position has a defined salary range for that position. Most likely they are hoping to offer a salary at the low to mid section of the salary range to allow for several years of salary growth. If I had it to do over again, I would ask how I ranked compared to other candidates for the job and based on that feedback I would decide if I should ask for more salary. You can also just ask if they can share the salary range for the position with you, so that you can gauge future growth potential. Once you know the range, you know if there is room to ask for more ;)
