    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Verizon in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very nice interviewer. Everything was going well. Questions are the normal interview questions you would expect. Then she started going over scheduling. She stated new employees always work late nights, weekend and holidays. Which is ok for me to start with. I understand scheduling usually is by seniority. I did tell her I have children and would eventually like a day schedule in a year or so. She went over the fact that I will most definitely stay with that horrible schedule for YEARS. She hasn't seen anyone get a day schedule for the years she has been working there. Really... how discouraging. Definitely not a job for someone who has a family or a life. Ended interview there. Advised her this is not for me.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Verizon in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through a job portal and had a initial HR discussion about the role, company and benefits. A week later a telephone chat was scheduled with a director and it was quick and nothing difficult. A week later onsite interview was scheduled and had face-face with 5 interviewers. Most of the questions were on coding, design and patterns. Programming was easy and questions were mostly Fibonacci, reverse a string, palindrome type. I had nice conversation during the interview and they posed some of the challenges and problems they are facing and i could mention few of the design aspects and patterns which could solve the problem. Overall it was a nice experience in interview.
    Result: Rejected me, It was a bit of SHOCK for me as I did very good in interviews and could not recall what went wrong.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Verizon in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Someone from human resources contacted me in response to an application. They emailed me about an open house. I couldn't make the open house so they scheduled me for a phone interview on September 2nd. I passed the phone interview so I went in for an assessment on September 4th. The exam was a bit challenging but I passed and was scheduled for a final interview with a supervisor on September 9th. The supervisor was really nice. We discussed my resume and background information. Then she asked me questions about past work situations and we did role play. She typed all of my responses. I recommend you do research on the products and services that the company offers. Overall the interview went well and they said they'll call me within seven days

    Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Verizon in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process started with a staffing agency contacting me about the opportunity with newly formed group Verizon Labs. There was no phone screen, instead they asked to come to their Palo Alto office for 2 hrs of onsite interview. I went onsite and in the first hour two product managers interviewed me about my projects, how do I handle difficult employees who don't show up to meetings etc. They didn't seem prepared as they were reading my resume during the interview. Second person came late and didn't seem prepared as well. They asked some technical questions about browser cookies and single sign-on. After that the coordinator came back and said the next person had an emergency meeting somewhere and had to leave so that was the end of the interview.

    Did not get a picture of what they were looking for. They did not get into detail technical discussion even after me asking if they wanted to get into details of my projects. It looked like a very disorganized and haphazard way to build a team.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    I applied online – interviewed at Verizon in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had phone interview with 3rd party talent search firm. The woman had no personality and was very condescending. I came away from the interview not wanting anything to do with Verizon. If this is how they treat a person as a candidate, working there must suck the life out of you. I was amazed at the personal questions the woman said were required by Verizon and felt thoroughly violated after getting off the call.
