    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CommScope.

    Interview

    I was contacted first by a recruiter who just sent an email asking for extremely detailed responses. I kept putting it off because it required so much effort for an email, and then I was contacted by another recruiter wanting to do a phone interview. After the hiring manager reviewed me, I was asked to come onsite for an interview. The offices are very dated despite being a cutting edge technology company. I interviewed either in person or via video for about 4 hours.
    They use the Lohminger competencies for interviews. The questions are easy as long as you actually know what you're talking about/interviewing for. Pretty basic behavioral questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CommScope.

    Interview

    I had a video recording interview, then called in for a phone interview and finally onsite interview with 5 engineers. The interview went really well and all 5 of them seemed happy after I interviewed. After I was done with the interview, I dint hear from the HR. I kept emailing them and they kept saying they are still interviewing other candidates. Its almost 6 months now and I haven't heard from them. So I emailed one of the interviewers and he says his teams thinks im the best fit. I called the HR and asked about the results. HR says the team thinks I lack few skills. I felt there was something really fishy about this and I was really mad. I spent my money to do this interview even though i wasn't feeling well and they don't have the courtesy to give me results. i had to make the HR listen to me as to how unprofessional this whole process is and giving candidates ambiguous results. I told them not to contact me and said I'm not interested in their company either ways.

    Interview

    this was an internal interview
    my position was eliminated upon acquisition by COmmscope
    and I interviewed and offered a job, but have needed to relocate to TX

    offer was fair compensatiuon-wise, but relo to TX was a deal-breaker

    I think company was poorly organized during teh transition to assess value of employees from 1-2 even horizon, too much focus on reducing budget/costs

    interviwed with cross-funcitononal team memebs presenting sales, manuf, marketing, PLM, GM

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at CommScope (Euless, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was straight-forward and comfortable at every step - but it did take about 3 months total; 2 weeks to get a response from the initial application, then 3 weeks for a phone interview, then 3 weeks for a face-to-face interview, then 3 weeks for an offer, with start date 2 weeks later. In my experience, this is not atypical for big companies.
