    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cox Communications (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The first round consisted of behavioral questions after being selected from recruitment at my college. The second round was a day of interview exercises: a group interview, a behavioral interview, then an easy case interview. I had lunch with a buddy later and then a networking night.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cox Communications (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Every question is technical! And it is just a phone interview. The interviewer is nice though. I expected lots of STAR based questions and actually none appeared. All questions are very technical and is very focused on the projects and past experience. They use LYNC so make sure that you examine and install it on your computer before it starts.

    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.
