General Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Clearwire in February 2010.

Interview Details – Absolutely insane process or lack of process. First was contacted by a recruiter, a 10 minute interview, he really knew nothing about the position, but pushed that I take a phone interview with the hiring manager. He was a nice guy but manic and arrogant. Next we moved on to a face to face interview, for which they required you come prepared with a business plan (nice strategy to get free advice on local markets from desperate candidates). Had a good interview with the guy and then radio silence for a month. I figured another lame informal company that did not follow up with people they did not hire, and let it go. Finally I pinged the hiring manager, and the next day I get an email saying that I was on the short list for the final interview with senior management. One hour later I get an email from the hiring manager saying he was leaving, and that the position was being filled internally.

So I asked HR for an explanation and they say, uhh, well, you know its just crazy, we are growing so fast and recruiting is hard. Long story short, a new regional GM comes on the picture and starts the process all over again, with phone interview. Again the radio silence for 3 weeks. I call, write the hiring manager again nothing. Finally I ping HR and they say, oops they went a different direction, which is fine, I have my own company and we are doing fine.

So if you want inconsistent communication, managers without the fortitude to tell you your not the person, a painful drawn out process, this is definitely the company for you.
