    Sales Assistant, Commercial Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Moline, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mediacom Communications (Moline, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was originally contacted and asked preliminary questions about the position. They must have liked that they heard, because I was told that they would pass my information along and that another individual would be calling me for an interview. A week goes by, no contact with me was made. The guy never called. I followed up with the first person and they said they would get with him. Over a month later, the guy still has not called, and I got a rejection e-mail thanking me for interviewing with them and that despite having many great candidates applying, others' credentials were a better fit. Now, not receiving an offer is not a big deal, but when they thank you for an interview that never happened, it's a pretty big deal. My credentials were never considered because the guy who was to call me for an interview never did. Suffice to say I was left less than impressed with the company and in the long period of time I had already moved on. My interest in working for Mediacom in the future has gone way down as a result of this. It would not be as bad if the guy had actually called me and interviewed me as I was told would happen.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Mediacom Communications (Des Moines, IA).

    Interview

    I was offered a job and told that I'd be working Internet tech-support. In actuality I do the Internet tech-support and the customer service role not a big deal to me I was told though that I would be transferring billing calls and customer service calls back to customer service. Pretty much it was a bait and switch.

    Call Center Trainer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mediacom Communications (Gulf Breeze, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I had to give a PowerPoint presentation and then answer interview questions in a panel setting. The questions were mostly nonsensical and had nothing to do with the position. The panel was made up of the hiring manager of the department and assistant manager, but it also included other managers from other departments that had no real reason for participating in the interview process.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mediacom Communications in April 2016.

    Interview

    the 1st call was from the recruiter, asked about experience and sponsorship. I said I am eligible to work for any company for the next 2 years. if no sponsorship is provided, it is fine. I pass this round.

    1 minute later, an engineer team manager gave me the 2nd interview. He asked about the sponsorship at the very beginning. I gave the same response but he interrupted me very rudely. He talked impatiently with a lot of nonsense words like, " you go for the big company like bank in nyc", etc.). Even I said I do not require sponsorship, he continued interrupting me by saying this is a multiple years position and other non-sense words.

    Hopefully every engineer in his team would stay longer than 2 years in this "2.6" rating company.

    Internet Support Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Mediacom Communications (Springfield, MO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Fast moving, apply online in the morning and have a telephone interview in a few hours. Demonstrate you aren't fully comatosed nor narcoleptic while understanding Traceroute and you're invited to their recruiting office. The screening is just banal and their tests are geared for the lowest common denominator by determining if you can add two numbers smaller than 10 or capable of reading monosyllabically without experiencing a psychotic break.
    The vast majority of questions and hypothetical scenarios revolve around angry customers, how would the candidate deal with what is seemingly a pervasive customer angst that has graduated into tangibly evil infectious rage of subscriber hatred for their unreliable Mediacom Cable TV / Internet package.

    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't want a position in a pedantic company that hypocritically describes their appetite for "long term focused" employees while they're constantly recruiting in wholesale quantities to replenish a recurring exodus of employees broken in a culture deceit that ostensibly exploits staff beyond reasonable limits.

    The interview process for Mediacom Communications consisted of an online application and phone interview. The online application was very straight forward. The phone interview included a variety of questions, as expected, and included questions related to motivating employees.

    You do a phone interview. In person interview with HR. In person interview with field support center managers. In person interview with the CEO's sister and someone else. It isn't too bad, especially because it is a simple role.

I didn't pass it, but if I passed, the last interview would be on-site. I have to say the questions are easy, however it was my first interview and I didn't prepare for the basic concepts.
