Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Colorado Springs, CO

Interviewed at Verizon

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.

Interview Question – The only "difficult" question I can remember was to define polymorphism and inheritance.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had another offer that was with my past company when I was working as an intern.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Atlanta, GA

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Verizon in March 2009.

Interview Details – Through a recruiter, met with team of 4 people. Very professional while decently casual. Asked questions and presented engineering problems to work through - complicated but not insanely so.
Outright stated that they were a Serious Work Environment, long hours were expected and all sorts of no-nonsense points. While this turned off my interest, the candor was most excellent.
