- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Verizon (Chattanooga, TN) in June 2015.
applied, did online assessment, phone interview, and then group interview with GM of several stores. The group interview was the worst part and I felt like I was treated rudely. I was intervewed by some of the rudest mangers I've ever met. I was excited about my interview but honestly after it Im more happy that I won't get a call back
- I was grilled and basically treated like I can't sale, even though I come from a sales background and even though the recruiter and phone interview was good, the group panel interview I went through is enough to make me never want to apply to Verizon again, I can't believe how rude those so called GMs were. I'll never want to work for someone like that. Answer Question

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week – interviewed at Verizon (Durham, NC) in June 2015.
There was a phone interview with me and 3 technical skills reviewers. I dialed into a phone bridge and was asked questions about network security topics. This included questions about firewalls, routing protocols, intrusion detection and more. A few days later I was asked to make an on-site visit where I had a second interview which was as technical as the phone interview if not more. I found out a few days later that I was not selected for the job.
- Technical network security questions followed by standard interview questions. Answer Question

I applied through other source. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at Verizon (Lake Mary, FL).
There were 2 phone interviews and 4 in-person interviews. Despite being told that I excelled during the interview, no affirmative information was given, even when I asked when to expect to hear back. It took 3 months to get an offer and they were not flexible about the salary at all, so don't expect them to budge with whatever they offer to you.
- They read verbatim from a script when asking interview questions. They are very generic and assess your past work history. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Verizon (New York, NY).
Written exam and HR interview. The interview was a two-part process that was done over a 2 to 3 week period. The lengthiest piece of the process was the background check. The do check all references and skill sets.The written exam was more to the job skill set than IQ.

I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks – interviewed at Verizon (Elgin, IL).
The interviews and assessment are really straight forward especially if you have previous interview/customer service experience. The hiring process is kind of long due to the thorough background check. Be sure to be as proactive as possible, and also stay in contact with your HR Rep through the hiring process.
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What is open development? Name a time when... Etc. Answer Question
Didn't have to negotiate. I was actually offered more than expected

Easy interview.. But hiring manager is not someone with whom i would want to work with..He was asking questions and screaming me in that process..as if I was his employee already..He was not even ready to listen to my explanation since he has some pre-conceived answer.. He is not knowledgable either and i for sure don't want to work with one such manager.
- Nothing difficult.. You can answer all those questions if you have 1 year of experience.. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks – interviewed at Verizon (Manteca, CA) in May 2015.
Applied online 4/13/15 then got an E-mail from a recruiter to take an online assessment 4/24/15 after the assessment the recruiter had called 4/28/15 to do over the phone interview/questionnaire of my skills. Then recruiter forwarded my stuff to HR so they could set me up with a f2f interview with the hiring manager which was 5/8/15. I had the f2f it seemed to go well a few days after interview 5/13/15 I received an email saying that my interview was QUALIFIED. I touched bases with the recruiter 5/14/15 and she said that they were finishing up interviews and the hiring manager should be picking 2 candidates soon and if I was chosen I would receive a call from HR. It has been 7 business days since my interview and I haven't heard anything so I guess I am out of the running for the position.

I applied online – interviewed at Verizon (San Jose, CA) in May 2015.
I applied through Linked in and was contacted by the recruiter. The whole process took 3 weeks. The first round was a phone screening interview for 45 minutes. The questions were mainly based on my resume. After that they scheduled on-site interview which had 4 rounds. The recruiting co-coordinator had messed up the schedule and I had to wait for 30-40 mins for the interview to start. Each round had a coding problem and a design problem.
