    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!

    Interview Details

    Very straight forward interview. I was first interviewed by a sales manager who was a bit intimidating. Following this (same interview) I was interviewed by the hiring manager. He was very personable and attempted to narrow down what position would fit me best.

    I had little negotiating room as they offered me close to the max of what they would start someone at. Be sure you are getting at least $13/hour as your base.
