    I have been working at Verizon full-time (Less than a year)


    Benefits and pay seem really good vacation days start day 1. Pretty good amount of training if you have some type of skill with technology


    None so far. I just got hired so I'm stoked and it's been so long I had to leave a review because I've been reading them while going through this process hope it helps someone else out.

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    Very poor process.

    Started with a quick call with a Recruiter. A couple of weeks later, the hiring manager called out of the blue and scheduled an interview with me, without introducing himself. I thought he was a recruiter at first and then found out he was the hiring manager after having to ask him what his position was at Verizon.

    I arrived to the one on one interview to find out it was actually a panel interview with all of his managerial reports. Would have been nice to know that ahead of time but whatever it went well. A few days later, the hiring manager called to schedule another panel interview with all of his peers plus work on a finance assignment which was to be summarized into PowerPoint and presented.

    I arrived and was first walked into a room filled with the prior panel I had interviewed with plus a few additional people waiting for me. Once again, this was outside of the agenda. They asked me questions that had absolutely nothing to do with the job like what I thought about bitcoin and about companies accepting it as a form of payment. Very strange. Anyway, was then walked to the scheduled panel interview and asked very similar questions to the prior panel interview. At the end of that, I asked if we were to discuss the finance assignment I had spent time working on and he said, “not at this time, maybe next round”.

    Needless to say, I walked out of that interview no longer interested in the job. I was never given a chance to speak one on one with the hiring manager, not in person nor over the phone. The entire process was very impersonal and a complete waste of time.
