Affiliate Engineer Interview

Affiliate Engineer
Fort Wayne, IN

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Verizon in December 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was one on one. Verizon uses a behavioral interview mixed with a typical structural interview. The interview starts out structural but then switches to behavioral about a quarter of the way into the process. I have had three interviews for higher level management. The higher level of employment the more behavioral the interview becomes.

Interview Question – What to do with a specific situation. "Give me an example of when you needed to get others to accept your ideas in order to complete specific project."   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
