    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cox Communications (Athens, GA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Very straightforward, after applying I received an email requesting to interview a couple of weeks after. My interview was like a conversation, not a high-stress situation. The recruiter and my interviewer were very responsive in answering my questions through email/phone.

    Community Relations Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cox Communications (San Diego, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online, heard from them a month later asking for a writing sample and PowerPoint sample. Got a call almost two weeks later for a phone interview which was extensive (behavioral questions) and lasted 22 minutes. Invited to a panel interview the next week where I interviewed with the same HR manager I had the phone interview with along with the hiring manager and two of her counterparts via phone. Again, behavioral questions, many of which were the same as the phone interview. The office seemed extremely busy, with everyone keeping their heads down. Very internally focused. I was notified a week later that I had been selected for final interviews, a one on one with the department VP and then a mini panel with the direct team. VP interview was fairly informal, he had three questions he was asking everyone. He also informed me that they had started with 230 candidates and were now down to 3, so it was just going to come down to fit. The team interview was great but very short. They basically were explaining the realities of the job and asking if I could do them. I was slightly thrown because this round asked about technical skills like graphic design and web management, which was not in the description nor on my skill list. I came in prepared to talk about larger implications for the position in terms of why community relations is important, but they were really looking for details about whether I could do the shlep work or not. Sent thank you notes during all rounds. Didn't hear anything for a week, so I followed up with the HR manager who said she'd let me know when she could. The next weekend (Saturday morning, to be exact), I received an automated email saying I was not longer being considered. The interview process was fine, but that last bit really irked me. I met with a total of 8 people over the course of two months, and there were only 3 candidates left- you'd think one of them could have picked up the phone to say thanks but no thanks.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cox Communications (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    My initial phone interview was standard and rather simple, basic technical questions were asked and easily answered. The in person interview was rapid fire, using impersonal interviewing techniques. Even though the interviewers explained the process, I felt like I was at an inquisition. I felt the questions asked may have been better answered in a written essay format.
