I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Level 3 Communications.

Interview Details – Level 3 may post positions on job boards but most positions start as contract position. This save them the expense of having to pay overtime, vacations, and benefits. There is a good possibility that once the contract term expires that they will extend it again and a contract position. Uf you do get a full-time offer, the salary will be lower than the contacted rate. They justify it by providing benefits.

Interview Question – The interview process was pretty easy. I had phone interviews with the directors which would be my internal customers. Pretty much softball questions were asked. Once I made it through the phone interviews, I was called in for an in-person interview with the person who would be my direct report and also a few of my peers.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The offer came through the contract agency and was not directly from Level 3 Communications.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Broomfield, CO

I applied online - interviewed at Level 3 Communications in September 2011.

Interview Details – I was required to have 2 phone interviews followed by multiple back to back interviews (face to face) after which I didn't hear anything for more than a month. The questions were not difficult but they did tend to focus on specific methodologies (PMP, Six Sigma, etc.) Level 3 places a high emphasis on these certifications and generally on subject matter expertise.

Interview Question – There was a lot of emphasis placed on specific methodologies and my understanding of them.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was unable to negotiate and was told that the offer was already signed off on by leadership and that I couldn't get any additional money because compared to others on the team that were making more/less the salary they were offering was justified. I was also informed that I would not qualify for any relocation or bonus despite this being dangled by leadership during the interview process previously.

Interview Question – One must be prepared for situation questioning. Managers want to know how well you can think on your feet.   Answer Question
