Application

The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Level 3 Communications.

Interview

The hiring process was incredibly long, and no one moves fast. However, each person I spoke with was very considerate and helpful. The interview itself last over 2.5 hours, during which there was a lot of general discussion about past employment, life goals and culture. I spoke with different individuals on the team, which was actually great as it wasn't high pressure and they would all be people I would work with - so it gave a wider range of the company's culture.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Level 3 Communications.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Level 3 Communications (Broomfield, CO) in September 2011.

    Interview

    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 Questions

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

    Negotiation

    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.
