Systems Software Engineer Interview

Systems Software Engineer
Southfield, MI

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Global Crossing in December 2008.

Interview Details – This is actually an interview I had in 2001. Consisted of phone interview, one on one interview, and an interview with two IT management guys. It was informal; mostly consisting of me explaining my past experiences and their explanation of the history of the company and what they wanted me to work on.
The were nice, reasonable guys.

Interview Questions

  • describe the most recent challenging project you worked on and how did you overcome any obstacles?   Answer Question
  • why are you looking for a new opportunity?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – During the interview they discussed the history of the company; how smaller phone/network systems were bought out by larger companies and if their stock price fell any more, they could be bought out by a larger company. I figured if this happened, any new redundancies would likely be eliminated. I started watching their stock price fall and read about the company. I decided to take a better offer from my (then) current company. Global Crossing then went on to have the 7th largest bankruptcy filing in US history.

Network Engineer Interview

Network Engineer

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Global Crossing in October 2011.

Interview Details – What a bunch of morons. Totally mislead on what the job actually consisted of. Probably wouldn't have accepted anyways due to the recent buyout by Level3. I've heard negative things about this company before and I should have listened to my gut.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Global Crossing in June 2010.

Interview Details – The hiring process consisted in three interviews, two with the human resources department, and the last one with the VP of the sector. They were correct, on time. They were prepared and it was a proffesional interview without the typical questions of a work interview such as "3 pros and 3 cons of your personality" and with clear direct questions of my work experience.
