    I applied online – interviewed at Verizon Wireless.

    Interview Details

    interview process is good. the background check, credit check, past work experience check is worse than a government or federal job. Need w2's or 1099 forms for past 7 years and if your resume is off more than a month on any job then they will no longer consider you

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Verizon Wireless in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    2 Phone screenings/interviews, 2 in store interviews, offer came over the phone. As they will tell you when you are finally accepted into training, they only take 3% of their applicants into the interview process. Make sure not to bomb and remember how "lucky" you were to be considered.

    Interview Questions
    • Very by the book "STAR" related type interview. In store management will definitely try to intimidate you in the interview setting to see how easily you fluster. Try to stay consistent and not get too emotional.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Salary was non negotiable, Commission structure is awesome if you get in a busy enough store to be able to exploit it.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Verizon Wireless in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process averages 30-45 days. Interviews are a 5 star format. Basically, situation questions need to be answered with the what was the situation, how did you handle it, what was the resolution, what did you learn from it. Prepare with 7-8 past work or school required situations and practice them so it can be presented as a conversation. They want to know if you can be coached well, you can handle a fast paced environment, you can solution sell products and yourself and that you are career minded. Also, let them know how amazing they are. Upper management react well to getting their asses kissed.
