    I applied online – interviewed at Verizon.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview schedule but unfortunately it collided with a midterm. I talked to the third party hiring agent that first contacted me and she was very helpful in trying to reschedule. She contacted verizon twice via email asking if there were positions available for candidates who couldn't make the initial interview. They said that they would try to create more positions but at this time it seems unlikely that they will get back to me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Verizon (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    Worked with a recruiter who then connected me with the hiring manager and other team members. Fairly straight forward process. Had to have a background check and drug test before I could join. The offer was as we had negotiated so completing the transaction was simple. Interviews were completed both in person and over the phone.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Verizon (Basking Ridge, NJ).

    Interview

    5 hour day, two interviews, group project, presentation. The one interview was with an HR guy, basic HR questions. Second was a "technical" interview but I guess they really were more concerned with what you wanted to do and liked since I got no real technical questions at all. The group project was one of those, there are 16 items and you are shipwrecked, rank them yourself and then come together as a group to rank them again. Just remember to not be hostile and talk over people, but make sure you have ideas and make it known when you don't agree.

    Usually there are two phone interviews and if those go well there is an in person interview with a store manager.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Verizon (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Interviewed for automation engineer with 1 or 0 years experience. Not clear about their expectations, HR and interviewers have different versions and expectation about the job role. Interview dates and time were not properly set up. Not clear about what skills they are looking for in a candidate. Not clear about the role, team members and job description. Not clear about the technologies they are using. Didn't get chance to meet rest of the team members. They provided a job id though which was very generic. called for on-sight first and cancelled the phone interview they set up for next day. Do not waste time unless you are sure its worth attending the interview.
