    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ashburn, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Good. Not overly informative but everyone was friendly and accomodating. Phone screen with a recruiter followed by a phone interview and a 1:1 with the hiring manager. Similar questions asked in both interviews. Didn't really give a chance to talk about more experiences. Seemed a little unstructured.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Received a phone call about a month after applying from a recruiter in Nebraska and gave her all my info. After going back and fourth on the phone for a few days, I was passed off to a recruiter in Texas where I had to provide all my info. over again plus how I could fit into the role. We finally scheduled the on-site interview. When I arrived for the interview it started out mostly conversational about what role they are trying to fill and how my experience and background could fit. It lasted about 30 minutes and then I was handed a general IT security test to complete within 30 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • Analyze this raw payload data and tell us what the attacker tried to do and when.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The recruiter asked where I wanted to be salary wise. I told her and she came back a couple days later with an offer very close to what I wanted plus bonus, which I wasn't expecting. I didn't need to negotiate any further.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview (about a month ago). Had appied for the position approximately three months ago. Process seems to move very slow and the recruiter said I'd hear back directly from Verizon in about 4-6 weeks; I'm going on my 5th week and still waiting for a call.

    Interview Questions

    • The phone interview is more than an hour long! Questions aren't very difficult, but you need to be direct and to the point (do not waste time). You should know every item on your Resume well and you need to be able to provide examples of most items listed on the job posting. So make sure you fit the description and have performed similar work.   Answer Question

    Associate Director - Technology Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ashburn, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process was extremely long. I was told I was on a fast track since I was already consulting at Verizon, however, it still took 2.5 months for me to get on board. I went through 2 interviews with my ultimate direct executive, in addition to one from my second line VP. Then a recruiter is assigned to interview for specifics (salary and benefits) and also to lead you through the hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    • As a long time consultant, I was not asked anything very difficult since we had an established relationship.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very simple. I stated what I required, and they got creative in making an offer that matched that requirement.

    interviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in March 2013.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    There is a phone interview followed by a face-to-face interview. Many detailed questions were asked. They were trying to ensure that I was a good fit for the company. And this allowed me to determine if the company was a good fit for me. Overall, I think it's a good vetting process. But it is definitely not for the meek.
