    Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, NH

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at FairPoint Communications (Manchester, NH).

    Interview

    I had a 2 hour phone conversation with director, a 3 hr interview with director and then no one ever got back to me. I had to email HR for a response 4 months after interview. How hard is it to send the mass email that says no or yes... I will not look for opportunities with this company in the future.
