    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at FairPoint Communications.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen was thorough. In person was expedient! Hired by the end of my interview. Hiring manager was very pressured to hire people and that was evident walking into the meeting. Got more than i was asking for by upping my dollars after i was offered the job on the spot!

    Negotiation Details
    Was poorly managed. Director who hired wouldn't touch negotiating benefits (vacation) and deferred to HR who would not discuss either.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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.

    Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, NH
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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 ;)
