    Solutions Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chattanooga, TN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Verizon (Chattanooga, TN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    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

    Interview Questions

    • 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
    • What are you motivated by?   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Verizon (Lake Mary, FL).

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • They read verbatim from a script when asking interview questions. They are very generic and assess your past work history.   Answer Question

    Interview

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Verizon (Manteca, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    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.
