    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Verizon.

    Interview

    it was a phone interview of technical questions. they have a set of pre defined questions. very lengthy but easy, basic stuffs for networking . some of the questions you get to be asked so often, so i was comfortable of getting the job. and to add, the interviewer was very understanding because since it was a phone interview, some noisy background was heard over the phone.
