    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Verizon in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Spoke to some recruiters at university career fair, gave them my resume. About a month later, I got an email with a link to an application for an internship position. About two weeks after that, got another email to set up a phone interview with someone from a staffing agency contracted with Verizon. Over the next few days was sent a travel itinerary for a visit to the office in Atlanta. Me and maybe 7 other students were flown to the airport and shuttled to the office for the live interviews. Some presentations about the company, then a 2 on 1 technical interview, and a 1 on 1 HR interview. My technical interview was fairly simple and mostly questions about how I worked on group projects with others, some concept definitions (I was asked to describe polymorphism), and at the end because there was still time I was asked to do a variable swap and fizzbuzz on paper. HR interview was questions about my work history, things I did and didn't like and such.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Verizon in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had phone interview with 3rd party talent search firm. The woman had no personality and was very condescending. I came away from the interview not wanting anything to do with Verizon. If this is how they treat a person as a candidate, working there must suck the life out of you. I was amazed at the personal questions the woman said were required by Verizon and felt thoroughly violated after getting off the call.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Verizon in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process to getting the initial interview did take a little over a month or so before my first phone interview, after that was about an hour of testing which is basic common sense and typing, upon passing there was another phone interview and upon passing that was a 1 on 1 and after that the offer which is when you do the background and drug screen. Worth it at the end of the day, Great benefits and competitive salary!

    Customer Service Representative, Alpharetta, GA Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Verizon in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied early May. I got a call back from a HR Recruiter who gave me a date for a phone interview later on that week. On that day the phone interview was rescheduled by the HR Recruiter for the following week. I then had the phone interview and I was invited to physically come up to the Verizon Call Center and take the computer assessment test. I just took the test and got a call back from another HR Recruiter stating I did well and I was invited for another phone interview the following day. I spoke to a woman named Claudia and she asked me 3 behavioral questions about my precious job experience. I answered her questions with star format. I was under the impression that I had one more interview which should have been a face to face but instead she said that I should be contacted via email the status of my application. Does it mean I did not get the job? I thought I nailed the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Claudia asked me how I deal with impolite customers and to give her an example of how I used those techniques.   Answer Question
