    Pros

    -Great leadership. Sure there are some faults, but compared to other places I've worked, it's head and shoulders above.
    -Family atmosphere. Co-workers are great, everyone gets along and helps each other out.
    -First experience in a union, and it's been a great one. We are well-paid and benefits are outstanding.
    -Continuing focus on not only training, but improving processes and customer experience.
    -Career opportunity. There is plenty of jobs to move into if one wanted to work for it.
    We love Anand! He's a great person and a great leader.

    Cons

    -Accountability. At times groups are not held to account for lack of documentation or low quality work.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to make a group leaner, you also have to look at what is holding that goal up for that group such as dependency upon another group's quality work. I cannot reach full potential if I'm held up by other's lack of quality work or lack of interest.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Alaska Communications (Anchorage, AK) in July 2014.

    Interview

    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
