    Interview

    Contacted by HR staff member of company via LinkedIn. After trading e-mails we set an phone interview to discuss the position. I did not know anything about position as the recruiter contacted me. After about a 50 minute discussion regarding my qualifications and the job description while the recruiter was impressed with me we both realized the position was not one that I would like to do.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Global Crossing (Southfield, MI) in December 2008.

    Interview

    This is actually an interview I had in 2001. Consisted of phone interview, one on one interview, and an interview with two IT management guys. It was informal; mostly consisting of me explaining my past experiences and their explanation of the history of the company and what they wanted me to work on.
    The were nice, reasonable guys.

    Reasons for Declining

    During the interview they discussed the history of the company; how smaller phone/network systems were bought out by larger companies and if their stock price fell any more, they could be bought out by a larger company. I figured if this happened, any new redundancies would likely be eliminated. I started watching their stock price fall and read about the company. I decided to take a better offer from my (then) current company. Global Crossing then went on to have the 7th largest bankruptcy filing in US history.

    Interview

    What a bunch of morons. Totally mislead on what the job actually consisted of. Probably wouldn't have accepted anyways due to the recent buyout by Level3. I've heard negative things about this company before and I should have listened to my gut.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Global Crossing in June 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process consisted in three interviews, two with the human resources department, and the last one with the VP of the sector. They were correct, on time. They were prepared and it was a proffesional interview without the typical questions of a work interview such as "3 pros and 3 cons of your personality" and with clear direct questions of my work experience.
