Interview Details –
First and foremost the best way to get into this company is through contract companies as they seldom hire straight off the cuff. The interview for my department, service activations, was very professional and stress-free. The management understands you're a human being that stutters or says something off sometimes and will work with you. My one piece of advice is be willing to learn, express that desire, and be absolutely honest with your skillset as they WILL grill you regarding aspects of your supposed skills.
A day after my in-person interview I was offered a position and to come in for a secondary interview before new-hire paperwork and relevant drug and background tests were given.

Interview Details – Initially hired in 2008 to PAETEC. The interview was a no-BS experience where they were straightforward with the responsibilities and expectations. The only part that seemed to be a bit secretive was salary and salary ranges, but this was not totally unusual. HR was extremely helpful in the on-boarding process and you were assigned an individual to bring all of your issues to. This was nice to see from a company of ~5,000 at the time. Since then, Windstream has taken over so I cannot comment on the process now.
