    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Verizon (Seattle, WA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • 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

    Negotiation

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Verizon in July 2008.

    Interview

    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.
