    Interview

    easy, they are desperate for headcount, sales talent pool is weak, most retreads and bridge jumpers. success will depend how many sales leads you get from the call ins, sales is 95% won on price.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at XO Communications.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview with the hiring manager that lasted 30 minutes. I made it to the second interview. I received an email for an interview at 8pm at night. The interview was for 10am the next morning. The interview lasted 2 hours. I interviewed with 2 employees for about an hour and a half then I had an interview with the manager. No one from HR or XO bothered to call me afterwards to provide any feed back. Nothing, never knew if I got the job or not, never even RECIEVED an email thanking me for interviewing. Extremely inconsiderate.

    Interview

    I had an initial interview on the phone. I was then requested to come to their offices in Northern Virginia for an in person interview. I met with managers that I might support. The interviews went well, but they chose a local candidate, rather than me as I would have had to establish temporary living arrangements.
