    Easy Interview

    I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Lumen (Minneapolis, MN) in Jul 2016


    It was a former colleague that recruited me.. Just had lunch very informal. Then filled out application online and had Human Resources Representative reach out to me. Went through the standard process- background check, drug test etc. Then negotiated start date.

    They asked about technical terms you knew.
