    I worked at hmv full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Verizon excels at providing opportunities to learn and grow. They provide an excellent compensation program with great benefits.

    Cons

    At the time of my RIF (Reduction in Force), there were no positions available here in Tampa. As I had no desire to relocate, I had to accept the layoff.

    Advice to Management

    I desire a position that test my skills, makes my think outside the box and provides a path for promotion. I desire that the company that employs me is as flexible to my needs as they expect me to be to their needs. I want to be part of a team that want to do more than what is required.

    Customer Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maidstone, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at hmv (Maidstone, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and within 5 days was invited in for a face to face interview. It was very easy but they didn't even bother letting me know whether I got the position or not. This is unacceptable, if the applicant made the effort to come in to meet you it's a common courtesy to at least email/call them back.
