    Fiber Customer Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport News, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Verizon in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and in two weeks I got a email about signing up for some initial testing. The first test was like the SAT or an IQ test. There is also a personality test that's within it. Then if you pass that you take a computer knowledge test, which has questions similar to the A+ exam. Then I was called the next day to set up a "structured interview", which was basically a face-to-face interview. They told me a recruiter would call me, but they never did. The structured interview involved two people reading questions out of a booklet and writting down your answers. They then score your answers to determine if you pass.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    I applied for Verizon about a year ago through their website, when I was a senior at my university. I got a call from HR for a quick phone screen to see what I was doing in school and what I had experience with, and then I was emailed a week or two later for an in-person interview on my campus. This second interview was filled with behavioral questions from HR, and a few technical questions (generic technical questions like defining terms) from the managers. They sent me an email a couple of days after for one more interview--this time, to see what I had experience with (again) and how I interacted with the team.

    I had two phone interviews which went very well. The interviewers were the head of the team. They asked about my VoIP and network experience along with my linux and BASH exprrience in detail. This turned out to be a false job. They stated they were cut on budget and could no longer hire but would keep in touch but they had been and still are hiring.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Verizon in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call about a week and a half later on a Saturday. I was then scheduled for a phone interview that following Monday which lasted about 15 minutes. After I completed a personality assessment and sent some references, two days later I was scheduled for my skype interview which lasted about 30 minutes. I told them I would think about it. I was called by a local rep who went over some of my concerns and then I decided to call and schedule my third interview which is tomorrow morning. Wondering what all I will have to do in this one?

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Verizon.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to this job by people who knew me well and people whose opinion the hiring manager trusted, so that was a good start. I had a quick phone interview and then set up serial 1:1 interviews. Had 6 interviews on two different days before I received an offer over the phone, One was technical, which lasted about 30 minutes. Then was joined by another interviewer who asked a couple of question on resume, and then I met two more directors, before getting a second invitation to meet a couple more team members. Most of the other rounds seemed behavioral/gauging fit type interviews.
