    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Verizon.

    Interview Details

    Several phone interviews, two or three 'in-person' interviews, lengthy (great vetting) process. No formal offer letter, just another step in the process. This part is pretty advanced - computer related. On boarding process continues to improve. 5 years ago, a few days of quick training, today, a full week of introductions, overviews, main systems familiarity, too much info, but at least you know where to go for help. much better today than 5+ years ago.

    Just another step in the process. actually, anti-climacteric. HR people seem to have this process down.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Verizon.

    Interview Details

    They gave two telephone interviews with general questions. It was pretty standard qustions about sales. The recruiter was very nice and seems to want to help people get the job. The recruiter said there would be three interviews up front so you would know what to expect. The offer seemed to come pretty fast as oppose to waiting around for weeks. They gave the decision within two days.

    No negotiation. HR basically gave salary range and that was it. They did quote a "total" compensation with bonus.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Verizon in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had two different phone interviews then I was interviewed in person by a panel of four. During the phone interviews I was asked to describe particular situations from my experience in the work force. Questions consisted of: "How did I overcome customer objections?" "What did I do to hit quotas?" "In the past, how did I solve a problem for an angry customer?" When I was being interviewed by the panel, I was asked why I was applying for Verizon, how I was going to keep a positive attitude, what makes me the person for the job?... I was informed that I was not hired as soon as I sent the follow-up email.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Verizon in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application on the website. Around 1 week later, I was called and emailed by VZW HR about a phone interview. They called me at 8am as promised, and the interview began.

    They asked me questions regarding my prior experience, as if they were checking up on my application. They asked about prior sales experience and management experience. They did not just confirm, but asked for in-depth examples of these jobs.

    After about 45 mins of questioning, they forwarded me to a store manager for a follow up interview. This interview has not yet begun.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Verizon.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on 6/4 and got an email from the recruiter the same day to sch and interview. the interview was on 6/6. I passed that interview and on 6/8 had another interview with an HR rep. That went really well and she told me that she would recommend me for an in store interview. This was the longest part. This took almost 5 and half weeks. even after i called the HR rep back to confirm about the last interview. The in store interview went really well and it was 7/20. He liked me so much that he didnt even want to interview anyone else, so i got a call from the same HR rep on 7/23 with an offer.
