    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed 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

    Foreman Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Alaska Communications (Anchorage, AK) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Laid back interview and as long you know the position, the people, the company things will go through just fine. Interviews can be tricky though at AC, you think everything goes great in the interview, you believe it is your best interview, but sometimes it's just not enough. Even with union representation, sometimes it just seems to be a little political, but isn't everything.
