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.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Alaska Communications (Anchorage, AK) in July 2014.
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.
- 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
