    Pros

    Benefits are amazing, the salary is competitive, work-life balance is valued.

    Cons

    Office culture seemed like it was great everywhere EXCEPT the Phoenix office. Not a fun or welcoming atmosphere there. Constantly felt like any above/beyond was wasted because you were stepping outside your job description. Also, there was this underlying fear of getting let go at any moment, which is a terrible feeling to have all the time especially when you are someone that does work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Cheer up the office! Embrace the talent you have.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Leap Wireless in December 2012.

    Interview

    Applied on the website and was called by the ops manager about 10 days later. Phone interview with ops manager and senior tech followed and then face to face with ops manager. Offer was made and background check complete all within 30 days. Started 40 days applying. Could have started earlier but needed two weeks with old company.

    Interview Questions

    • None, the interview was very easy and not technical. No standard HR questions, more of seeing if you could be someone good to work with.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    good. The first offer was low and we got it up to a decent level. Signing bonus Relo and additional bonus equaled 9600 with 1 year retain on signing bonus and 2 years on relo.
