    IT Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Level 3 Communications.

    Interview

    I sent my cover letter and resume to a recruiter who contacted the school for students. I had a phone interview with the lead developer and the project manager of a specific team and was called back within the same day for an in-person interview. I was contacted by the recruiter to attend the company job fair (multiple teams interviewing). At the job fair I met with two other teams and the team I had the phone interview with. I was offered the position the next afternoon. The interview was not very technical, some data structure and algorithm questions and distinguishing between C++ and Java. Very personality-based interview. I was very smilely and friendly, spoke a lot about what I wanted to do in the future and how this position would be a great step.

    Interview Questions

    • This was my second phone interview ever, I was nervous and did not know how to answer a simple algorithm question. The in-person interview with each team was very relaxed and conversational, more of the team telling you what they do and asking if you see a fit. Most difficult question... Where do you see yourself in five years?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was not very much room for negotiation, but the opportunity I was offered was more than I could ask for, and no other company presented a similar opportunity.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Level 3 Communications (Broomfield, CO).

    Interview

    Forgot I had applied here, but heard back about a month after applying. Once I heard back, it went pretty fast. 30 minute phone screen with recruiter, followed by 2 hour interview session in Broomfield. Spoke with the VP of the department as well as the 3 managers that worked for him in 30 minute blocks. Mostly just talked about my experience and interest in Level 3, some people were more interested in technical details than others. Interviewed on Friday, heard back on Monday or Tuesday.

    Sales New College Grad Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Level 3 Communications (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Initial phone interview-explained the position and gave a brief intro to the company Personality/IQ test- Behavior questions, math (pretty simple), then word analogies (SAT format). 45 min Phone Interview- Once again went over job description. Know a little bit about the company. Research the products and services the company offers. Be prepared to talk about your professional and educational background. Face to Face Interview- Your in a board room with 3-4 employees of Level 3. One of them was a recent hire (Sales Manager) whom didn't seem to be that educated. You'd be suprised if you actually research your interviewer's which one's embelish their roles. Continue to know a little about Level 3. Questions are stictly behavioral. How would you handle a specific situation. How would you engage a Client etc. Your recruiter is very informative as to what to be prepared for before each following interview. Good Advice: Be yourself, remain calm, and know your interviewing for a position within the firm. It's important to not repeat questions throughout the process. Remember to take notes. Phone interviews are a great way to have cheat sheets. What not to do: refrain from asking questions you can find out after you've been selected to work for Level 3. You may encounter an arrogant interviewer, don't make them feel stupid. You won't get selected.

    Senior Director Cybersecurity Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Level 3 Communications (Washington, DC) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online, job was posted publicly. Despite having an employee contact on the inside, I could get no information about the position, nor any feel for how they were looking to fill it, what its duties were, etc. After pressing for 3 weeks, I finally did get my contact to press HR to contact me. Someone called, interviewed me for a half hour. She said she would send me an email, contact the hiring manager (the CSO) but she never did. The interviewer had no more information than the one sentence description of the job on the website. It was disappointing, really, because it seemed Level3 had no urgency to fill the position, or to even interact with me after applying. If I hadn't known someone there I'm sure I would have never received any communication from them at all. After about 5 weeks of nothing, I was told they were looking to fill the position internally. So why post it in the first place? Lack of integrity? Are there rules that require positions to be posted publicly to give the impression of transparency and openness? Why when it's all just a dodge?

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions at all, it was simply a rehash of my resume with someone who didn't know anything about the job (or that they didn't really want to hire someone from the open position anyway)   Answer Question

    Interview

    I was on a conference call with 4-5 managers. They just asked me simple questions anyone would probably know.I came in for a one on one interview, but it didn't last very long. I think I applied at just the right time. I don't think I would apply again. It's very high stress. I enjoyed working there though.
