    National Account Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cogent Communications (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Their recruiter reached out to me via Monster and left me a voicemail and email. I responded to him and we set up a time to phone screen. I was happy he was able to schedule my interview the same week as our phone screen showing that they move fast.

    I was sent to the interview which went excellent and I was provided my feedback the very next day which I accepted.

    Cogent moves fast and did a great job in keeping me in the loop from our first email through my job offer.
