    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Cox Communications in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call the next day for a phone screening. She called me later that day and I did an online assessment which I finished and passed. I had my interview two days later. The interview was at the corporate office and it was done with a store manager and district manager. The interview was mostly STAR questions and situations. They opened the floor for questions for me. I didn't hear from them for 18 days. I finally got a rejection email after emailing the recruiter twice and asking for feedback. Quite disappointed I didn't get the job, but oh well life goes on.

Typical sales and customer services interview questions. Background check and drug test. Hiring paperwork. Training is two months. Hours need to be flexible.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cox Communications (Orange, CA).

    Interview

    Structured questions seemed to be lacking my capabilities. I didn't feel like my sales skills were being evaluated and I was being judged on an interview structure instead. Found out later I was passed up by another external person, this seems to be a trend with the company.

    Interview

    Interview is based on the STAR format. It was a Panel interview with 2 managers, and went by smooth and quick. Do not need to worry about eye contact since most of the time they are looking at their paperwork and taking notes.

    Interview

    Phone interview took about 15 minutes and was fairly easy followed by two person panel interview. Interview was easy but I was very overqualified. Was basically offered the position the same day and I accepted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cox Communications (Las Vegas, NV) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online to sales position around the third week of May and received a response rather quickly by email that I had been selected to move forward with the second phase of the process and have a phone interview. That was conducted on the 23rd of the same month. Next I was notified that I would be moving on again to the next phase which was two online assessment test that I completed and a face to face interview was then scheduled for the 30th of the May. The interview was done in the STAR format which I thought I did rather well at but I guess not as I was not hired! Was told that interviews would be conducted through Friday of the following week which would have ended on the 6th of June. Was also told that I would be contacted by HR Dept if chosen for the position which had a start date of 7-7-14. Well I waited and waited for a call that never came but continued to check my "job page" on the Cox homepage which still to this day shows that my application is "under consideration pending results of interview"!! That was last update was on 6-18-14........The job opening posted again right around the third week of June! Hmmmmmmm! Guess I wasn't what they were looking for! 10 years of sales experience wasn't good enough!
