    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at XO Communications in December 2014.

    Interview

    Spoke with Chandra Green on a phone interview after applying online for the position. The interview was very standard. She tells you alittle about the company and then asks you to tell her about yourself. The questions to expect are why do you want to work here?,what qualifies you for the position? You will be asked about salary requirements at the end before coming in for a face to face interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    Could not meet minimum salary requirements so did not continue with the process. Their range is $45k-$50k

    Interview

    While the hiring process at XO might seem to drag out at times, that changes once you obtain an interview with the hiring manager. They will ask probing questions regarding your experience, long/short term goals, your strongest assets, why you want to work there, and what you consider to be your weakest skill/quality. Then depending on the position, you could be asked specific questions to determine if you have the skills required for the position

    Interview Questions

    • There was only one unexpected question in regards to etiquette while working in a "cube" environment   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was a little room to negotiate based on experience and fair market value
