    I have been working at Alaska Communications full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Internal promotions, training, ground up employment and all seems good from what I hear. We get many calls from retired employees...many speak of the politics of the small state company, but are happy.

    Cons

    Depending on management, it's very likely before your 6 month union protection comes in, they can can you for nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Alaska Communications in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    They contacted me the Monday after I had submitted my application online and gave me the initial phone interview after that they invited me in for a face to face interview where I sat down with the general manager for store front sales and a store manager and after they asked me all of the questions on their interview packet I asked my own questions about the company and after that they told me that they were going to send my paperwork off to HR and they will contact me in a couple days. After a whole week went by they had finally sent me an e-mail stating that the position had been filled.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question I ever have to answer at an interview is what makes me frustrated at work? I never have an answer to that because I don't go for jobs that I will dislike.   Answer Question
