    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    Received a call to schedule a short phone screening. During the phone screen was asked a couple questions about myself and what I know about the company. Was then scheduled go in for an in person interview the following week. For the in person interview, met with the recruiter who gave me the run down of who I'll be meeting with. Then met with the team supervisor who asked me some questions about myself then explained a little bit about the role I'm interviewing for. After that I met briefly with the VP for some additional questions and he walked me out to the front door for the conclusion of the interview. Was contacted the next day with an offer to start asap.

    Project Manager I Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Granite Telecommunications (Quincy, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    A recruiter got me the interview. Spoke initially with the lead recruiter at Granite, whom frankly had a really abrasive attitude and seemed to be looking for a reason to turn up his nose at me. After he left, I waited 20 minutes to speak with the manager, whom was much more pleasant. I was asked very basic behavioral questions, they basically tell you that the 3 month contract they start you on is how they gauge you. I received an offer early next week but declined it because I had heard what an awful place Granite is to work for.

    Director of Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Granite Telecommunications (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was contacted by corporate recruiter. Interviewed with them, then asked to meet face-to-face with VP of Sales. Then asked to meet with two people that would be my peers. Each interview ended extremely positive, (as interviewers openly stated), but then I had to request, (several times) for an update. They finally responded with 'We will not be moving forward'. Almost felt like the interview process was a fact finding mission, looking for new ideas (externally).

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Granite Telecommunications (Quincy, MA) in April 2019.

    Interview

    An independent recruiter found my resume online and landed me the interview at Granite Telecommunications. I met with one of the internal recruiters and gave me a preliminary interview. Felt a good rapport and I felt confident with my responses. The hiring manager was the complete opposite. Barely made eye contact with me and jotted down every single thing I said. I left the interview thinking it did not go well.
