    Tower Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Crown Castle in June 2020.

    Interview

    Phone call with recruiter, 1:1 Director, 3:1 Panel with peer group,4:1 Panel Director level case study presentation. Entire process took about 30 days. With exception of the recruiter all seemed to be very robotic and dry work personalities. Key note: While shocked but not surprised that the leadership team across the board seems to lack diversity on many levels.

    Interview Questions

    • Case study consisted of multiple parts from leadership to budgeting. I delivered it in a PowerPoint.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Crown Castle (New York, NY) in March 2020.

    Interview

    From a talent management professional who should know about the science of interviewing and the hiring for culture fit, this was the worst interview I've ever seen conducted in 20 years. The interviewer was condescending, extremely bias in her views on the subject matter related to the roles and asked me NOTHING about myself or my experience. She didn't even show basic interest about who I was as a person. I am more than qualified for the role on paper and came with enthusiasm and desire to learn. Being a person who studies behavior, early on she decided who I was, judged me and then disengaged. It was so incredibly obvious and completely turned me off. I don't need the job, I was honestly interested and intrigued by the role but it was so disheartening to see people with similar background and education as me using such poor interview and interpersonal skills.

    Interview Questions

    • One behavioral question that with little context was very poorly worded and showed lack of effort and creativity.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Crown Castle (Oak Brook, IL).

    Interview

    Applied through a recruiting company. First interview with recruiting company. Second interview with HR at crown castle. Third interview was a panel interview at Pittsburgh. Case study questions on what you would do if so and so happens.

    Overall the interview was difficult in nature as they presented different questions than your typical STAR behavioral questions. But Crown Castle hires the best of the best and their interview process ensures that.

    Financial Development Program Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Crown Castle in September 2019.

    Interview

    Very cutthroat, you must know accounting well and some basic finance. Their are many rounds 1:1, phone call, case study, flight to headquarters. It was a good experience but they are clearly looking for people who have already learned accounting and finance and do not need to be assisted in any way.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Crown Castle (Houston, TX) in August 2019.

    Interview

    The first step was the screening call with HR. It went well and the interviewer had a lot of passion for the company. She answered my questions honestly and told me the interview process. Within a few days, it was requested I meet the hiring manager for coffee. Though it was "not a formal interview", it was a formal interview. After an hour conversation, I was told it would be a while, as I was the second person they had talked to. 2 months later, I have not heard back.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Crown Castle (Denver, CO) in June 2019.

    Interview

    A phone call interview took place first. It lasted approximately 20-25 minutes and was very pleasant, with the typical interview questions. Then a face-to-face interview took place at the local office with one interviewer in person, another teleconferenced in. Very nice and pleasant people again. Standard questions. I arrived early and they started the interview early so I didn't have to wait. I got a tour of the office. Overall, an easy experience.
