    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Level 3 Communications in August 2015.

    Interview

    Some time after applying at Level 3, I was contacted by their recruiter to schedule and come in for an interview. I didn't know until I got there that I was scheduled with two other people at the same time. We were told we would then rotate among three groups of three people, each group working with a different department in the company. Each group asked overall the same questions, but each had unique ones tailored to their department. After finishing up, each of us spoke to a rep. from an outside company L3 works with to train new-hires to get certified...but they won't cover the cost.

    Overall it wasn't a bad interview experience and was one I hadn't experienced before. Two weeks later, I got my job offer. I later learned from talking with other people in my class (IP Bootcamp) that they didn't wait nearly two weeks before hearing back so it must not be a standard wait time. I also had to wait an additional month after my offer to start the class due to the timing of the class.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Level 3 Communications.

    Interview

    The hiring process was incredibly long, and no one moves fast. However, each person I spoke with was very considerate and helpful. The interview itself last over 2.5 hours, during which there was a lot of general discussion about past employment, life goals and culture. I spoke with different individuals on the team, which was actually great as it wasn't high pressure and they would all be people I would work with - so it gave a wider range of the company's culture.

    Interview Questions
