    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cox Communications (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Every question is technical! And it is just a phone interview. The interviewer is nice though. I expected lots of STAR based questions and actually none appeared. All questions are very technical and is very focused on the projects and past experience. They use LYNC so make sure that you examine and install it on your computer before it starts.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cox Communications (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    HR was very nice. But did not interviewed with HR, rather, directly to the manager and one person who works in the team. No easy behavior questions, and you need to quickly come up with solutions about data analysis. Did not talk about anything from resume.

    Interview Questions

    • They said was STAR question in the email, but actually basically no behavior questions. Asked how to deal with data in certain situtations.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Cox Communications (Atlanta, GA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Found job on Indeed.com and applied on Cox website. After 3 weeks, they closed the post and sent an email to schedule a phone call with HR. 30 minutes with HR, reviewing resume. I asked about company culture and her experiences with Cox. This question was well received. One week later I had a 30 minute phone interview with the hiring manager. He gave a brief overview of the job and immideate needs of the position. I interjected similar experiences from my past whenever it was relevant. Two weeks later, on site with said hiring manager and his boss. Detailed review of the job and projects. He gave a lot of detail, I made sure to summarize his comments to verify that I was listening and understood the goals of the position. Also gave a couple of annecdotal stories of how I performed similar tasks in the past. The Director was looking for a "self starter". Used specific examples of how I took over projects and teams without the boss asking me to do so. One week later, interview with peer to Director with similar tactical experiences as mine. This was the reality check to verify my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • No real difficult or unexpected questions. Know your resume and how it is relevant to the position. "Tell me about a time when..." "What are biggest weaknesses?" "What would your former coworkers say about you?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Offer was within expectations, no negotiation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cox Communications (Atlanta, GA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Long interview process, an administrative assistant hire could require 8 to 10 interviews, questions were varied, usually off the cuff and unstructured, vary conversational as interview could go off the subject, seemed interested in getting to know an applicant as a person as well as level of technical knowledge, allowed an applicant to work toward their strengths. Rigorous and challenging but exciting and often humorous.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Cox Communications (Alpharetta, GA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Can be a difficult interviewing environment. My experience with Cox has been mixed. They hired me twice for contract opportunities, but their interview style doesn't really serve them very well. Interviewers arrived with no understanding or agreement about the role they were interviewing for, and it was a group interview. So the questions were a wide variety, not very applicable to the role I was informed to expect. Interviewers at Cox are usually reluctant to share much info at the start of the interview, to put it in perspective. They just sort of jump in with their questions.

    Interview Questions

    • What I described above was the most difficult: fielding a variety of questions only loosely related to the job I was interviewing for, if at all. For example, on this interview for an integration architect, I got questions about ETL development, software release management, and database specifics.   Answer Question

    Interview

    The hiring process was rapid and thorough. Interviewers were engaged throughout the interview process and complementary of previous work experience and strengths. It was a more relaxed approach to interviewing. They were quick to follow up post-interview and honest and forthright throughout the process. They knew their business and had it all together.
