    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cox Communications (Atlanta, GA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Was contacted via email by a Talent Acquisition Representative. Responded via email the same day. After two days and no follow up from the rep, I contacted her to get a time for a phone interview.
    She honestly was the worse interviewer i have experienced. She started the conversation by asking if I had questions. She couldn't answer any and kept repeating tgats a question for the area manager. Then at the end of the interview she seemed shocked by my compensation answer. This was alarming because she had my salary from my employment history. Companies need to understand, even if you contract. HR specialists, they are a reflection of your company. Yikes! This was scary. Decided to accept another offer before the two week waiting for a face to face interview. Not a company I'd want to be associated with.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cox Communications (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied via my college's career board, talked to a rep at the career fair a week or so later, and was invited to interview on campus about a week after that. The on-campus interview was short and though it was a formal interview seemed more light and conversational. I was invited to interview at Cox in Atlanta.

    The set up of the interview day in ATL was a bit tough. It was a day long process (exhausting by the end) involving about 20 of us who interviewed at one time. We were broken up into groups of about 5 and given a project to consider as a group and then had to present to two interviewers who could ask us questions. There were also a series of one-on-one interviews and then finally I had lunch with my "buddy" for the day - someone currently in the program I was interviewing for. This is where things went south. My buddy was unwelcoming, uninterested, and frankly rude, in my opinion. We ate lunch together before I would be released until I had to come back for the dinner/networking event. In their cafeteria, there was a table of about 10 people also in my buddy's program. My buddy walked me up to introduce me to them and they were even more unwelcoming of not only me but also my "buddy." At one point, my buddy went to introduce me to one of the girls at the table and couldn't remember her name, she then pronounced the girl's name wrong and was sternly corrected - talk about awkward (there were maybe around 20 people in the program total and they had all been working at Cox for a year or so at this point).

    The networking dinner was awkward. The whole environment was cut throat and I didn't get the impression that they really enjoyed their job or their co-workers. We were told we'd hear back whether we got the job or not within a week. To make a long story short - I didn't actually hear back until months later and I'd already accepted a different position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cox Communications (Atlanta, GA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The first 2 rounds of interviews were by telephone. The questions weren't terribly difficult but be prepared to answer questions in the STAR format. There weren't any very difficult questions as long as you prepare some anecdotes for some of the potential questions they might ask. The third round of interviews takes place in person and is a day-long process including a panel and writing sample.

    This was a phone interview only as it was within the company that I already work for. We did not proceed past the first screening conversation because I didn't have the experience they wanted (and they weren't specific enough in the job description.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cox Communications (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    HR was very nice. But did not interviewed with HR, rather, directly to the manager and one person who works in the team. No easy behavior questions, and you need to quickly come up with solutions about data analysis. Did not talk about anything from resume.

    Interview Questions

    • They said was STAR question in the email, but actually basically no behavior questions.
      Asked how to deal with data in certain situtations.

    Interview

    Step 1: A HR Rep called for a brief phone interview. Typical HR questions: brief wrok history, validation of resume information, 5 year goal, "tell me about yourself", etc. Good idea to ask the HR Rep the essential qualities that the Hiring Manager is looking for.

    Step 3: Face to face interview with the Hiring Manager. Need to cover all problems in your work history, need to sell oneself according to what the hiring manager is looking for.
    Step 4: Face to face interview with theHiring Manager's boss and counterpart. Writen PM test.

    informal. Hiring manager confused about company goals, unable to translate them to goals for the position. My questions might have been too hard for her to answer. They seemed to want someone less creative and more corporate.
