    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Verizon.

    Interview

    They did not contact me despite high qualifications other than sales. I filled out a 1 hour survey. The questions were ambiguous so you need to pay good attention.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Verizon.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by recruiter a few days after applying online. Said I would be a great fit and really hyped me up. I was scheduled for an in person interview with hiring manager, then 2 phone interviews; a second with a different person in HR, who asked an hour and a half worth of behavior based questions, followed by an interview with a different would-be team member. 2 weeks later I was scheduled for 2 more phone interviews, one with a VP of marketing and one with a different would-be team member. The entire process took 2 months (no exaggeration), and after a lot of follow up they ended up hiring someone internally.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Verizon (Little Rock, AR) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the Customer Service Representative position through the Verizon website. I received an email 2 days later from a recruiter with a link to a 7 part assessment, which I was informed I had 72 hours to complete. The assessment took me about 2 hours, it was pretty easy but very time consuming. It consisted of behavioral questions, critical thinking exercises, & a call center simulation at the end. Once I completed it, I received an email the next day from the same recruiter requesting I take a phone interview. I set it up & chose a time slot, then he called me the same day. The phone interview was okay- definitely not the most personable interview I've ever done. It pretty much consisted of him spouting off information about the hours, salary, and job requirements. He then asked me about 15 mins worth of behavioral questions, all of which I answered in STAR format. He didn't give me any sort of indication if my answers were satisfactory, and didn't make any sort of small talk or present himself in any sort of friendly manner. It was very cut and dry. Once the phone interview was over, he told me I could be getting an email/call from a person at my local call center to set up an in-person interview that same week. I was called, set up the interview, and was told it HAD to be in the next 2 days. So I set it up, then proceeded to do the in-person interview 2 days later. A call center supervisor interviewed me- she walked me through the call center and showed me the work place environment. We then went into a little conference room where she asked me some basic questions about my work history, then some more behavioral questions (most of this interview process consisted of STAR type questions), then she explained to me that if hired I would need to meet certain metrics standards, & that there's a possibility I wouldn't advance in over a year's time if I didn't get a 10 for every customer service survey completed about me. She then told me to sell her my smart phone, which I attempted. After that we were done- the interview took all of about 20 mins. I was told I'd receive an email/call within 3-5 business days if I was selected for employment. I received an email 2 days later telling me I hadn't been selected.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Verizon (Chattanooga, TN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    applied, did online assessment, phone interview, and then group interview with GM of several stores. The group interview was the worst part and I felt like I was treated rudely. I was intervewed by some of the rudest mangers I've ever met. I was excited about my interview but honestly after it Im more happy that I won't get a call back

    Interview Questions

    • I was grilled and basically treated like I can't sale, even though I come from a sales background and even though the recruiter and phone interview was good, the group panel interview I went through is enough to make me never want to apply to Verizon again, I can't believe how rude those so called GMs were. I'll never want to work for someone like that.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Applied online 4/13/15 then got an E-mail from a recruiter to take an online assessment 4/24/15 after the assessment the recruiter had called 4/28/15 to do over the phone interview/questionnaire of my skills. Then recruiter forwarded my stuff to HR so they could set me up with a f2f interview with the hiring manager which was 5/8/15. I had the f2f it seemed to go well a few days after interview 5/13/15 I received an email saying that my interview was QUALIFIED. I touched bases with the recruiter 5/14/15 and she said that they were finishing up interviews and the hiring manager should be picking 2 candidates soon and if I was chosen I would receive a call from HR. It has been 7 business days since my interview and I haven't heard anything so I guess I am out of the running for the position.
