Network Security Administrative Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Cricket Communications in March 2010.
Interview Details – Was hired through Insight Global, a placement firm. I met with Insight Global outside the interview, and then sat in an interview with the manager and then his staff came in and grilled me. I was hired as a contractor and after 9 months of contracting was brought on as a FTE. Since being brought out, my entire contracting time seemed to add as my total time of employment by the company.
Negotiation Details – Yes, I got priced into their top tier due to my experience and knowledge.
Crs/Rsr Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cricket Communications in October 2012.
Interview Details – my experience was different. I went in for an interview, and was required to shadow while I waited. The store got very busy and required the managers attention. so I started working, (on my own was not asked) signing customers in troubleshooting etc. I stayed for almost 3 hours. needless to say no other interview was necessary. I was hired!
It does take over a month to start with this company due to background checks. that is a bit frustrating.

Human Resources Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Cricket Communications in August 2009.
Interview Details – Overall a very disappointing experience. The receptionist made me wait until the movie she was watching on her computer was done to take my name. I waited another 30 minutes to be seen. I was interviewed by two people that clearly did not get along and were one upping each other during the interview. There was very little structure to the interview, jumping around from topic to topic made it hard to determine what the job would really entail.
Interview Question – None, very few questions were asked of me during the interview. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I felt I would not be a good fit in the office overall. I was very uncomfortable with the obvious tension between the two people interviewing me, who would have been coworkers. The overall lack of professionalism was a major warning sign.
Very Easy Interview
Vice President Consumer Marketing Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Cricket Communications in October 2010.
Interview Details – The entire interview process was very pleasant and very professionally run. I was initially reached by the VP of H.R. who found my contact info in LinkedIn. I interviewed with 5 people and was immediately offered a job in less than a week from my last interview. The people were very professional, smart and had a good vibe about them. The work cutlure is very hard working and collegial.
