I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Verizon.

Interview Details – Verizon found me through my school's career fair where I spoke to some HR reps. After a few weeks they called for a phone interview that led to an on campus interview, first with a representative from HR that asked behavioral-based questions, then an interview with two hiring managers at the same time, who asked technical questions.

Interview Question – Would you be willing to relocate to an as-yet undisclosed location   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I received a more interesting offer from another company
