    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Verizon in July 2009.

    Interview

    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.

They are very big on meeting goals.
