    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Level 3 Communications.

    Interview

    The recruiter arranged a conference call as the team was out of state. Was asked a lot on Tableau while the job description clearly only stated required experience on SQL server and Oracle. Someone should've read the job posting before sending it to the recruiters so not to waste everyone's time. Oh well.

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Level 3 Communications (San Francisco, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is very extensive, be prepared for multiple interviews. Initial interview will be with a recruiter that will last about 30 minutes or longer going over your previous work history. If the recruiter finds you are a potential good fit they will schedule the next interview with the Director of Global Sales during this interview you will speak with a current SSA who will describe the job duties and ask some general questions about previous experience. After that is compete the Director of Global Sales who will ask about previous experience why Level 3, and provide an extensive overview of what the job entails, expectations and some basic interview questions. If he/she believes you would be a good fit they will set up two additional interviews with Account Directors which could be phone or in person these interviews are pretty causal it is more of a character interview to see if you will jive with the team. If all goes well with the last two interviews the recruiter will contact you usually pretty quickly, to let you know they will be drafting a offer contingent on a background check. They will also ask you for anywhere from 3-5 references with good contact phone numbers, they will actually call these references and if they can't reach them it WILL hold up your start date. Overall the process was very extensive but they really make sure the role is a good fit for you as well as the company.
