    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was managed by a subcontractor. After three phone screenings I was called in for a face to face interview. I was onsite two hours and met with three Verizon employees. I started with a long time employee that was looking for help getting the work done. The second was very technical and asked very technical questions. The third was a VP who was interested in documentation and process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very straight forward, was interested in my previous experience and how I could bring that expertise to support the company. I was asked to provide some examples of how a problem occurred, how it was handled and how it was resolved so that it doesn't happen again. Had some situational questions if in an event that an attack occurred what are the course of action. Overall it was straight forward, no gimmicks or attempt to manipulate the question. It was a positive experience and felt comfortable the entire interview process.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Primitive. I got a call from an EA currently in the role trying to fill her own position which I found odd at Verizon being that in the past, i've always been called by HR. I spoke with her for 1. hours and NOTHING was mentioned about needing a TS/POLY for this job. I was called back for another interview on a holiday week with a DIRECTOR, not a VP who I was told this role was supporting and wasted another 3+ hours of my time in an interview to get told I'd receive a call in a couple of weeks. Well, I got home to his EA calling me to get my input on the interview. She told me she hadn't spoken to her boss yet about how things went and vowed to call me back either way to let me know if I should expect to hear back in 2 weeks. No call. It's really unprofessional and I hope they get what they have coming since they don't know how to be courteous and professional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Team I directly dealt with was great, process is long and in my 25 years of HR experience have never seen a company that requires as much information as Verizon does. 7 years of proof of income statements via W2, 1099 or tax statements. Over the top from a candidate perspective.

    Negotiation

    They were aware of my requirements going into the negotiation.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Good. Not overly informative but everyone was friendly and accomodating. Phone screen with a recruiter followed by a phone interview and a 1:1 with the hiring manager. Similar questions asked in both interviews. Didn't really give a chance to talk about more experiences. Seemed a little unstructured.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Two back to back interviews, each 30 minutes. First was a technical interview. Past experience, language preference, skills, etc. Second was behavioral, past projects, working with a team, specific examples, etc. They did not ask for any solving of problems. Very standard interview, should not be a problem for majority of people.

    Network Security Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Received a phone call about a month after applying from a recruiter in Nebraska and gave her all my info. After going back and fourth on the phone for a few days, I was passed off to a recruiter in Texas where I had to provide all my info. over again plus how I could fit into the role. We finally scheduled the on-site interview. When I arrived for the interview it started out mostly conversational about what role they are trying to fill and how my experience and background could fit. It lasted about 30 minutes and then I was handed a general IT security test to complete within 30 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The recruiter asked where I wanted to be salary wise. I told her and she came back a couple days later with an offer very close to what I wanted plus bonus, which I wasn't expecting. I didn't need to negotiate any further.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview (about a month ago). Had appied for the position approximately three months ago. Process seems to move very slow and the recruiter said I'd hear back directly from Verizon in about 4-6 weeks; I'm going on my 5th week and still waiting for a call.

    Interview Questions

    • The phone interview is more than an hour long! Questions aren't very difficult, but you need to be direct and to the point (do not waste time). You should know every item on your Resume well and you need to be able to provide examples of most items listed on the job posting. So make sure you fit the description and have performed similar work.   Answer Question

    Associate Director - Technology Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Verizon (Ashburn, VA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process was extremely long. I was told I was on a fast track since I was already consulting at Verizon, however, it still took 2.5 months for me to get on board. I went through 2 interviews with my ultimate direct executive, in addition to one from my second line VP. Then a recruiter is assigned to interview for specifics (salary and benefits) and also to lead you through the hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    • As a long time consultant, I was not asked anything very difficult since we had an established relationship.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very simple. I stated what I required, and they got creative in making an offer that matched that requirement.
