    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Windstream in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went through a few interviews and tech screenings with the recruiter regarding this role, The recruiter was enthusiastic about my qualifications and that it was a perfect fit for the role. When the recruiter attempting to arrange an interview with the hiring manager, I was dismissed straightaway.
    The recruiter frustratingly stated the hiring manager did not want anyone who had more than two jobs within five years!

    Draftsperson I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Little Rock, AR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Little Rock, AR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Windstream in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Easy interview process, mainly generic questions, did ask a couple specifically for job knowledge. Interviewer was very professional and knowledgeable of the position and what it entails. He had been in this line of work for many years. He followed up with me when he hadn't heard from me after he submitted the offer through HR, but I hadn't heard from HR at the time.

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate because this was an entry-level position in a new career step so I didn't know what to negotiate for.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Windstream in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was real easy. I put in an application and received a call two days later. I went to the interview prepared with my resume. I have a MA from Michigan, and that is all the manager talked about; my prior educational background. She asked questions about certain situations and my prior experience. I finished and she called the other manager in. The other manager took me up to the third floor and she asked the same questions. She went over the salary and asked if I had anymore questions. I said no. I received a call later in the afternoon with an offer. Very easy interview.
