Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Verizon.

Interview Details

Very rigorous interview process. HR is driving it to be 100% behavioral-based. Questions have been standardized for each job title. Recruiters are overloaded and very slow to respond. So are the HR Business Partners.

Interview Questions
  • I was asked four separate times if EVRYTHING on my application was truthful. And then they came back and compared what I told them with what was on my application and what the background check showed, even for very minor discrepancies. Not unusual to have to provide a W2.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
There is limited room to negotiate. I had very high leverage and only got an additional $5k/year + $10k signing bonus.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Verizon in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had difficulty understanding the VP leading the Process Improvement group - although personable, heavy accent and sometimes mumbled. He basically did a bait and switch with me - told the recruiter he was interested in me for one position then when I interviewed with him - he told me the position was filled and asked if I was interested in lower level position - he also did this with other candidates I spoke with - seemed to be his MO. Interestingly, the position he told me that was filled is still being posted on the Verizon site, the Glassdoor site and others. In addition, someone I know took a job under him and he said the hiring VP lied (yes he used that term) to him about the level of the role and once he got on board he found out otherwise. Told him he would be a director and when he came on board he was listed as manager and now is in a cube for first time in 20 years.

    Reasons for Declining

    Lack of integrity of the hiring VP. Could not see myself working for someone I could not trust.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Verizon in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was transitioned from a contractor to an employee. Verizon had already seen my work and the interview process was very straightforward. I was asked for an updated resume and application, I was interviewed by my current supervisor, and was offerred the job. I was able to negotiate additional starting salary since I was in a postion to request it.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I asked for an additional $5K in salary and was told that it was unlikely to happen. Verizon didn't negotiate on salary. My senior manager went to bat for me and I was able to get my request. I think this is not typical.
