    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zayo (Boulder, CO).

    They mostly asked about what kind of projects I have been working on and if I knew anything about salesforce. They also gave me a couple of 'puzzle questions' to solve that weren't even coding questions.

    Account Manager and Customer Success Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Zayo (Boulder, CO) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Overall I have found the interviewing process at Zayo to be very frustrating. I applied to three positions in the past several months, and scheduled three interviews. Sadly they were all three with the same recruiter. In the first interview for a Account Manager position I was told that me resume was going to be forwarded to the hiring manager. I never heard anything back even after following up several times. I applied for the AM position again to find out what was going on, and I scheduled another interview. He was 15 minutes late so I ignored the call thinking that if he is going to be so unprofessional, twice, do I want to talk to him. I applied for a Customer Success position, and sadly I was asked to do a screening call with him. Again. I scheduled a time with him, and fifteen minutes before the call he e mailed me asking to reschedule because a managers meeting came up. I let him know that this would not work for me since I scheduled my day around this time. He called me ten minutes after our scheduled time, and at this point I was pretty upset. He told me that he had to take the internal meeting and fires come up. He did apologize profusely to his credit. I let him know how unprofessional he was for the third time, a lack of planning on their part shouldn't have an impact a meeting scheduled days in advance, and how can recruiting have a fire? It isn't as if it's mission critical for Zayo. I was flustered and I ended the call shortly with him since I wasn't in the right state of mind to finish the call. Frankly after learning about the low pay (40K base +20 variable) for the AM position and the employee reviews of Zayo I am not too bothered about passing on this.

    Sales Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zayo in July 2019.

    Interview

    Started fast with 3 interviews done within several days. Then after meeting with division president (in his 40's), he felt very uncomfortable more likely because I am no longer a youngster (in the 20's or 30's). Regardless, based on the positive note from previous interviews (VP & Director) I felt good regarding the outcome. Then nothing happened for several weeks. Very unprofessional. Reached out to the recruiter and after a while he wrote back that they decided on another candidate. And yes - they expected 15+ years experience!

    Data Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Zayo (Boulder, CO) in June 2019.

    Interview

    The referral and scheduling teams were very efficient and went out of their way to help. However, the team that interviewed me was very poor in their communications. The interviewers were not prepared and asked basic SQL join related question. Most of the questions were behavioral and for most part of the interview, I was asked to come up with questions. After the actual interview, I never heard back from the team despite multiple follow ups and ultimately got to know that someone else was offered the position, through a mutual friend. Very unprofessional.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Zayo.

    Interview

    About what you'd expect. I don't have more to add than that. No really, there isn't more to add to this. This was a normal interview process for an IP position. Really, Really still not enough characters to satisfy Glassdoor?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Zayo (Boulder, CO) in April 2019.

    Interview

    The first step was a pre-interview call to see if personalities/ambitions matched. I was then invited to the office for an in-person interview which was between a junior developer and more experienced employee. They asked standard background questions about my resume, and asked a few technical questions (that were a bit like brain teasers).
