Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Verizon Wireless (Honolulu, HI) in December 2013.

Interview

Applied online and successfully passed the initial screening/filtering. Phone calls were made to previous employers, referrals, and myself for a background check; credit score as well. Received an appointment for an onsite interview, where you have a one on one with a store manager. Requested drug test immediately after passing the one on one interview with a 24 hour window.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Verizon Wireless.

    Interview

    First is a hour long phone interview with Human Resources, asks the typical STAR questions:
    Typical behavioral interview questions (answered in STAR format)
    - Tell me about a time you went above and beyond for a customer
    - Tell me about a time when you had to build trust with a customer
    - Tell me about a time when you had to forego doing something for a customer that would have helped your business but was against company policy
    - Tell me about a situation where you met both a short term and long term goal

    After that had interview with a manager of a store, asks you to role play and sell something that would benefit the customer. Asks what you like and don't like retail, (don't say you hate retail hours).

    After that recieved offer, the whole process took a very long time however, applied on-line got a phone call a month later to set up a phone interview two weeks after that, after the phone interview about 2 weeks later was asked to do the interview with a manager. Finally, about a month later I recieved an offer. Applied in April finally got the offer in June.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Verizon Wireless.

    Interview

    The recruiter I spoke with was extremely professional and recommended me for an interview. However, when I went in to the interview I met with two store managers who answered their texts while I was answering a question and one of them even checked sports scores on his computer while I was speaking in response to one of HIS questions. I've never felt so degraded in a job interview and plan not to apply again.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't even remember the questions now, it was all I could do not to yell at them.   1 Answer
