    I applied online – interviewed at Verizon Wireless.

    Interview

    A very long process, it took me over 3 months to even hear anything back. Started off with a phone interview, then assessment text, then face to face interview. Everyone was really nice but became rude when i tried to find out my post interview status. Very hard to get in touch with someone to ask questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Verizon Wireless in October 2014.

    Interview

    I had applied several times online with no contact until the last time which took a couple of weeks to receive an email for a phone interview. The email included days and times available for the interview for the following week which i chose Wednesday at noon (10/15). The phone interview went smoothly, it was about an hour and 30 mins long with basic questions about my job history, detailed information about the job available and progression available within the company, and a few questions about my job performance and the credo they sent me along with the email.

    After that was finished I was told I passed and would get to move on to the next step which is the assessment test at the local call center for which i scheduled the following week on Monday at 2pm (10/20). The test is 7 parts about multitasking, typing and listening, and logic. After the test was completed, i stepped into the hall where i was told i passed and scheduled the in face interview for the following day at 4pm (10/21).

    The interview had questions about why i wanted to work there, job experience relevent to this job, 2 STAR questions, and lots of roleplaying. The roleplaying was to sell a piece of technology i use on a daily basis, and some phones/plans information that was provided during the interview. The interview was about an hour long and went great. The gentleman interviewing me was very friendly and nice and at the end of the interview told me i was exactly what they were looking for in a candidate and that I did great. He told me to expect a phone call within 7 to 10 business days to tell me if i was going to get the job offer.

    Right now im waiting for the phone call but i expect to hear good news.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Verizon Wireless (Rancho Cordova, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call from a recruiter and set up a phone interview. They just ask you questions about previous employment and some STAR questions. I found this format to be super helpful because it helped me form my answer the way they want it. Passed the phone interview and they had me come in the next day for an assessment. It takes a little over an hour and there are questions that have you rate if you agree or disagree and likely or not likely, listening to calls and rating responses on a scale of poor to good, listening to and reading sentences and typing them the same way, then looking at a picture and looking at certain criteria to answer questions and lastly listening to phone calls and transferring them to the proper department and at the same time checking to see if numbers are the same or different. By far the most I have ever done in a job assessment. Passed the assessment now waiting to schedule a face to face interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online on August, 31st. On September 9th I received and invitation via email for an open house hiring event for the next day. On the 10th I first had an initail interview with an HR representative which was basically going over my resume and experience and why I wanted to work for the company. The company is big on its credo so make sure you have reviewed it before your interview. After the interview the HR let me know I had moved on to the next step which was an online assessment taken on site the assemment was 7 sections and took about an hour and a half to complete. The assessment had different had excercises such as reading comprehension, testing your ability to multi task and how well you handle customer calls. After that assemment I was brought into the hall and told I had passed and was asked to schedule a f2f interview with a supervisor for the next day. The f2f interview consisted of going over why you would be a good fit for the company, role playing as if you had the position and we're taking real life calls related to verizon, also questions related to your person experiences with customers in your past jobs , and I had to "sell" the interviewer an item of my choice. The interviews weren't hard, but of course I was nervous. After that interview I was told I would be contacted by an HR in 5-7 business days . However, the next day I was sent an email requesting to have a "follow up call" . Once I recieved the call on 9/15 the HR reviewed my application again and then extended the job offer contingent that I pass a background screening and drug test. A rigorous process, but I believe it's well worth it !
