    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Verizon (Silver Spring, MD).

    Interview

    A couple of days after I applied, I reveived an email stating to complete the assessments required for the position. The assessments were easy, yet time consuming. After I passed the test, I was called for a phone interview which lasted about 15 minutes going over my work history and why I choose this position. I was called 10 minutes after my phone interview for a face to face. The face to face was very easy and the hiring people made me feel comfortable. Most questions were.."Name a time when...". Make sure you answer each question in STAR format. Four days later, I was called for a job offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Verizon (Nevada, MO) in April 2014.

    Interview

    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?

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Verizon.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • They had asked for a 90-day business plan - how was I going to success.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

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

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Verizon (New York, NY) in January 2012.

    Interview

    They were very professional but took forever to respond to my application. There were several interviews before I was finally considered and weeks went by before proper correspondence. The interviews were repetitive but that's par for the course I guess when intense screening is involved.
