    Business Analyst II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomfield, CO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Level 3 Communications (Broomfield, CO) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for a Business Analyst II on 12-8, roughly a month later I received a call from Level 3 asking to schedule a first round interview. Upon entering the building I checked in at their welcome computer and waited 15-20mins. At which point I was greeted and taken into a conference room.
    I interviewed with three sets of four people. From my interpretation Level 3 was evaluating me for other positions besides the Business Analyst II. The questions were very standard and entry level, I was then escorted out. Roughly two weeks later I received an e-mail informing me they were not proceeding with my candidacy.

    Informal interview, started with a telephone discussion with the hiring manager, followed by an in-person interview. After that, two additional interviews; one technical, one sales focused.

    IP Technician I Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Level 3 Communications (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Received E-Mail from hiring manager who had found my resume on a career site inquiring if I would be interested in meeting for an interview. Accepted and went to the interview. Basic three candidate-group interview with four managers of different divisions in the company. First three managers were very nice and pleasant. Thought I had the interview in the bag until the fourth manager came in who seemed to be completely checked out and was not engaging. Was a complete personality mismatch and could tell he had zero interest in me as a candidate, at times criticizing my answers to questions and downplaying my military experience in IT. Left interview being told I would hear back, offer or no offer, from somebody within the next 7-10 days. It's been over two months and I never heard from anyone and my phone calls and emails have not been returned. The interview process was good all the way up til the fourth manager and I am okay with not receiving an offer but it stinks being told I'll hear something back then I don't hear anything from anybody and all of my phone calls are not returned and email's not replied to.
