    I applied on LinkedI for an Account Manager position. I spent much time thinking about it, but decided to do it. Shockingly, I received a call from the Hiring Manager directly for the position for a telephone interview. After that, we scheduled a face to face interview the following week and I was offered the position.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Verizon.

    Interview Details

    I have interviewed with VZ several times throughout my career. All were internal, but they use the same process. They use the situational experience interview method. It is 6 questions and they will usually start like: "tell me about a time when...." "how have you used your experience to deal with ...." "How would you manage a situation that...."

    Really what they are looking for is someone that can analyze the situation and apply their life experiences to develop a clear answer. They are big on experiences here.

    Interview Details

    Terrible they take you out to sell verizon products to existing customers. Nobody wants to buy anything. The lady I was paired up with spent 8 hours with me walking from store to store and didn't sell 1 upgrade or anything. She made $0 in commission; therefore working for free.

    Its all commission based, no salary!

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Verizon in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was called for a phone interview with 2 managers. It lasted approximately 30-45 minutes.
    They asked Sales-related questions such as:
    1) Have you ever had a quota-bearing position?
    2) How successful were you in previous sales positions?
     There were also situational questions, such as:
    1) What was the most difficult customer situation you have had and how did you handle it?
    2) if you had a problem with a co-worker, how would you address it?

    I was then called back to schedule an in-person interview about a week later. I came in and interviewed with 2 more mangers for about 30 minutes (similar questions as phone interview) then, if they felt you were qualified to proceed, you took a 45 minute skill test on a computer.
