I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Verizon (Seattle, WA) in April 2010.
There is no hiring assessment or testing just a phone screen and an interview with the hiring manager, and potentially a peer interview. There is a drug test and background check for your previous employers, drivers license, ability to bond the new employee, and verification of any college degrees held.
- Questions were very basic. Nothing difficult or unexpected nor particularly germane to the position. There had been many sales people in a turnstile and several sales managers and sales people were recently hired. Only a couple of people were there more than one year. Answer Question
They don't negotiate. If you try, they will pull the offer. They will offer you a salary and bonus, or a salary and commission structure. I was told I would be on a 6 month ramp, but after three months was put on quota and the comp plan changed so that everything I had been working on was no longer eligible for commission. The comp plan eligible products were changed frequently making it difficult to sell, close, install and bill customers.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Verizon in July 2008.
Interview process consisted of initial interview with hiring manager. This was followed on a separate day with interviews with two of his peers from a different organizational silo. All of this was followed by an HR phone interview where I was asked questions for a half hour and then presented with an offer. I thought this was strange. What was the point in wasting our time with a bunch of behavioral interview questions when the hiring decision had already been made? I had 48 hours from the time of the offer to take a drug test. This was a managerial position, and at the time of the offer, I had not had an opportunity to meet any of the individuals I would be managing.
- Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a co-worker and how you resolved it. Answer Question

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Verizon (Tampa, FL) in May 2008.
They conducted a structured interview which consisted of situational questions where you were asked to explain how you would respond to various business environments/conditions/situations. There was a variety of categories and at the end you were offered the chance to add any additional commentary/details you felt would be helpful in determining your ability to perform the job you interviewed for.
