Very Easy Interview

Home Service Technician Interview

Home Service Technician
Oklahoma City, OK

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Cox Communications in February 2010.

Interview Details – Brief process. The company was desperate for people at the time I was hired. I had 10 years prior experience and was more than qualified for the open position which I was offered. The temporary placement company contracted by the employer actually did all the preliminary work, and the actual hiring interview was clearly just a formality.

Negotiation Details – None.

Difficult Interview

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Alpharetta, GA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Cox Communications in March 2010.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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

Director Interview

Director
Atlanta, GA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Cox Communications in January 2012.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – What were some of the negative aspects of your previous jobs; describe them and how you overcame the negativity.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Fair.
