    Senior Analyst - Commissions Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Lake Mary, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Lake Mary, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Verizon in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Once I applied I received an email to setup a phone interview with a recruiter. During the phone interview the questions asked were over your resume and why you wanted to work at Verizon. During the call the recruiter advised me which job to apply for even though it was not the position I wanted. After a week I received an email to setup an onsite interview with two managers. The interview was a one on one with each manager and they went over the job position, your resume, and situational job issues. After the one on one interviews I emailed both of the managers 3 weeks later just to be told I was not moving further and that was it. From the interview it appeared that I was well over qualified even though the position required a 4 year degree, MBA, and/or CPA.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Interview Details

    Face to face with the basic scenario questions involved. More specifically questions were asked about my resume. This was not the usual off the street interview as I was a contractor for some time prior. If my resume was not stellar there may have been more questions. In addition, my previous visibility made me a strong candidate for a placement that had to be made quickly. This company has been evolving to stay competitive in the economy so things may be quite different now. Overall, I would say there are no "tricks" during the interview as they do not want to waste your time or theirs. They are looking for good candidates.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Irving, TX

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Verizon in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got contacted by the recruiter. The initial was just to get to know each other and then schedule an onsite interview. They flew me to Irving for the onsite interview. Everything was great. It was strange that they didn't ask me to do anything coding during the interview. Just show that you have experience and be confident then you should be fine.

    Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Lake Mary, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Lake Mary, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Verizon in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met an HR person at a networking event. Then applied online. After I applied online, a outsourced recruiter working for Verizon called me and told me to apply for a position. After I applied I was interviewed on the phone. The interviewer did not feel i was a fit for his division and said he was going to "pass my resume around"... That was the end.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Verizon.

    Interview Details

    The requirements for this job was a phone interview by the recruiter, followed by 3 tests. No other interview was necessary, the hiring was based on who could pass the tests. One test was a 'battery' test similar to the SAT: Simple math with formulas give, reading comprehension, and matching similes, etc. The second test was based on networking and internet knowledge. The third test was a role playing test with a phone headset and a mock up of a ticketing system.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Verizon in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hypocritical and unprofessional at best.

    I filled out a tedious assessment and submitted an application online. 2 weeks later, a talent agent sent me an initial interest email to schedule a phone interview with him exactly 4 weeks from the email. On the interview, I blew him away (wasn't hard to do), so he scheduled me a phone interview with a HR rep. 1 week later. During this interview, I blew her away too (again, easy). She emphasized questions about how to deal with difficult customers, if that helps you out. Because I was applying for a Spanish bilingual position, she scheduled a Spanish phone interview. The next day, I got the call, and this is where it gets interesting: my proficiency in the language was FAR better than the woman interviewing me. It was to the point of embarrassing. Long story short, I blew that person away, too.

    So then, one day after the phone interview, I got a call by a store manager in proximity to where I live. She scheduled an in-person interview with her and another store manager/asst. mgr in proximity to me.

    Two weeks from that call was the interview. I dressed and groomed to impress, got in the mindset, arrived early, etc. Throughout the interview process, the questions they threw at me were simple, not too out of the ordinary. Again, they focused on difficult customers, angry people, etc. At the end of it all, one of the mgr's said "Don't stress, we'll call you in 2 weeks or less to tell you the news!" I shook hands, etc, I left and that was it.

    OK, 3 weeks passed, not 2, and instead of their supposed 'call', I got an email saying that my position has "been put on hold". I called the HR Rep (because she told me to call her should I have any questions), and I explained the email to her. She said "Oh, they meant to tell you you didn't get the job! They sent you the wrong email!"

    WTF, guys. As if it wasn't bad enough that your Spanish speaking interviewer can only speak at a high school level? I could take that woman's job in a heartbeat...

    I waited THREE months to try getting some silly phone sales job, only to be left hanging. On top of that, they did NOT call me, unlike they promised, to tell me the good or bad news. Amazing!

    One way or another, these faults in their company will hurt the business overall, if it hasn't been already.
