    I worked at Cincinnati Bell full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hard working employees, focused on providing good customer service. Competitive compensation, vacation, benefits.

    Cons

    Core company is treading water in a very competitive market. Key assets and the best opportunities for growth and profit were spun off to Cyrus One along with considerable investment, but with limited benefits to core company shareholders or employees. The remaining company may find it difficult to continue to adequately invest in network maintenance and technology. Limited gender and racial diversity, many management positions appear to be filled based on good-old-boy connections.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Cincinnati Bell.

    Interview Details

    The interview process seemed disorganized -- for starters, the hiring manager was 25 minutes late for our first meeting -- but the position sounded promising. Eventually, I received a verbal offer from the hiring manager. Someone from HR was supposed to call me the next day with the formal offer. Nobody called. After a month of no word, and no answer to my calls or emails, I received the official, "You didn't get the job." I asked for an explanation, but received none.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview questions were all normal and the conversation was very collegial.   Answer Question
