Network Engineer Interview

Network Engineer
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Cox Communications.

Interview Details – HR is a mess. Mostly filled with contractors. Can take a while for them to respond. So following up is a must.
The interviews are nothing special. No challenge with the right experience. Beware though - they have some very smart and experienced people there pretending like they don't know very much.

Interview Question – TCP windowing in detail   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Near impossible to negotiate without a competitive offer

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Atlanta, GA

I applied online - interviewed at Cox Communications in October 2012.

Interview Details – Step 1: A HR Rep called for a brief phone interview. Typical HR questions: brief wrok history, validation of resume information, 5 year goal, "tell me about yourself", etc. Good idea to ask the HR Rep the essential qualities that the Hiring Manager is looking for.
Step 2: Phone interview with the hiring manager. Friendly interview. Validating the resume information. Good idea to use information from the HR and sell oneself to the Hiring Manager.
Step 3: Face to face interview with the Hiring Manager. Need to cover all problems in your work history, need to sell oneself according to what the hiring manager is looking for.
Step 4: Face to face interview with theHiring Manager's boss and counterpart. Writen PM test.

Interview Question – Brain teaser question. What type of leader are you? If can only choose one between documentation and Communiction, what would you choose?   View Answer
