I worked at Alaska Communications full-time (More than 8 years)
Has been a very good company to work with or for. Very fast paced. Like all companies it has its ups and downs. Nothing really bad to say. Great CEO.
Middle management needs better leadership training to be more consistent across all levels. They will allow you to work as much as you want, to a detriment. And they are going through a lot of change right now. Work life balance for me and my team was good because I focused on it, but others will allow you to work yourself into the ground if you don't keep an eye on it.
Advice to Management
Get to know your front line people better. I know it's difficult to do being so busy, but it will pay dividends if you can allow the time to do so.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Alaska Communications (Anchorage, AK) in July 2014.
They contacted me the Monday after I had submitted my application online and gave me the initial phone interview after that they invited me in for a face to face interview where I sat down with the general manager for store front sales and a store manager and after they asked me all of the questions on their interview packet I asked my own questions about the company and after that they told me that they were going to send my paperwork off to HR and they will contact me in a couple days. After a whole week went by they had finally sent me an e-mail stating that the position had been filled.
