    Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Littleton, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Littleton, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at tw telecom.

    Interview Details

    Be prepared, if you are up against an internal candidate you probably won't get the job regardless of your qualifications or how well you interview. I have had 4 interviews and each time made it to the final 2 but the inernal person got the position. I have personally been told that I was a better fit but it was "political." Hopefully Level3 will do a better job and take external candidates seriously.
