    Quality Supervisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Verifone.

    Interview

    The initial phone interview with the recruiter was great. The second interview with the hiring manager was disappointing from the moment he greeted me. He seemed uninterested in my answers. I got the feeling he wasn't interested in a woman having the position because it was for the distribution center. Regardless it's their loss. I am over qualified for the position just thought Verifone was a great company and I was willing to give it a chance.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Verifone (San Diego, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Stay away from this place! These people are unethical and shady! They brought me in for an interview without any intention of hiring me. They used me as a free consultant to try to help them debug their embedded system, wasted my whole day that I took off from my current job, and ate up 6 hours of my time -- for nothing! Their entire staff was a bunch of amateurs who were unprofessional. Their program manager was proud of being "non-technical". When I got to the end of the interview, they said "We don't think this position will be interesting enough for you". Don't waste your time on these clowns! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    Interview Questions

    • What techniques would you recommend for trying to debug and embedded system for which there is no connection? What tools do you think are the best for debugging with? What do you think are some of the best current technologies for encryption?   Answer Question

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Verifone (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online to a finance job at Verifone. It was a very Mickey Mouse operation from the start. They told me to set aside 45 minutes for a phone screening, which I did. The call lasted 10 minutes, I basically gave my 90 second elevator speech, then some administrative stuff such as when I was available to work, salary expectations, etc. I was then invited in to a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager, which went relatively ok. The interview was again more going through my specific experience, no real technical questions, pretty easy. Following that I had one more 30 minute interview with someone in a remote location as a sense-check.

    Inevitably, I got an offer which was essentially at the same total pay, salary + bonus, as my previous job. That plus less vacation days, also they force you to take almost half your vacation days during designated "lock-out" periods during 4th of July weekend and Christmas-New Year's week. Basically no improvement. I tried to negotiate the salary, and was accused of not being interested in the job, instead of, say, offering a performance review after 6 months. All in all, HR was very amateurish and unprofessional and just another of many red flags. I turned down the offer and have no regrets whatsoever. As one friend said, it seemed like a "toxic" situation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Verifone (Alpharetta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Telephone interview. Very condescending and rude. She asked me how I felt about automation but didn't elaborate what she was looking for. When I asked if they were looking for VB scripting because she kept harping on Windows platform, she told me that no one uses vb scripting anymore. Highly inaccurate. I wouldn't have accepted working under the direction of this clueless woman for any amount of money.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Verifone.

    Interview

    I just had a phone screen interview. It went pretty well. We talked about 30 min. Hiring manager introduced her team and their need, and asked me a few questions. It wasn't very technical as it was just the phone interview. She said she would let me know the result by next week. So I'm looking forward to hear back from her and hoping to move on to the next step and eventually get the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Verifone (Atlanta, GA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Email and phone interview with a recruiter, two hour in-person interview with hiring manager and one other manager. Overall very pleasant and direct. All questions were straightforward and related to either specific skills necessary for the job or personal practices on social media. Although I felt the interview went really well, I received my rejection letter one day after the in-person interview. I reached out to the recruiter for feedback (or contact information of the hiring manager) and received a generic response.

    IT Audit Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Verifone.

    Interview

    Applied from the company website and was contacted 5 days later by the recruiter. All conversation was made only via email, no phone conversation. The hiring manager had questions about my skills and experiences, but rather than setting up a phone interview, he sent a long questionnaire through the recruiter. I provided my answers promptly.

    I never heard back from the recruiter anymore, but the job is still posted. I inquired the recruiter, who told me the position has been filled and the posting is wrong. He will remove the posting. This was back in September 2013 and sometimes in December 2013, it was no longer posted.

    Today, July 2014, the position was re-posted again. It seems that the IT audit management team have an issue keeping their staff, so I am kind of glad I was not selected.
