    Interview Details

    Had a first round phone interview. Interviews are done by TheWorkPlaceGroup. All questions are very simple, behavioral. Asked things like why Verizon, would you be interested in a CPA career track? Within roughly two weeks they notified me that I got the second round interview and they are flying me up to their NJ corporate headquarters tomorrow.

    Interview Details

    I started as a trainee 8 years ago after a master degree with a very informal process review because at that time we were a 1000 employees business coming from the merger of 3 promising startups and so the internal mindset remained startup oriented. And in 2008 Verizon Businesses took over this new company. So my experience is not relevant for current positions.

    Interview Questions
    • Informal interview as explained above which is not relevant for current jobs.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Initial screening call followed by a super day. The super day had one HR interview and one business interview. They were both very simple very easy very straightforward for anyone who evenly mildly prepared. However they are absoltuely terrible about getting back to interviewees. I thought I did fairly well relative to the other candidates I interviewed against and my background very strongly supports my application. They said that they would let us know in two weeks of the super day. It has been almost a month and I have received no reply. I even emailed them but have not received any notification on the status of my application. I think this is incredibly rude and unprofessional.

    Interview Questions
    • None, all of it was super easy and straightforward. The outcome is uncertain since they didnt have the decency to get back to me   Answer Question

    I applied online – interviewed at Verizon.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume through their online career website. Was called about 2 days later for a phone interview from a recruiter who doesn't work directly for Verizon. She asked very basic interview questions like tell me about a time you had an issue with a group project or how do you do with groups, etc. About a month later (early-ish January) received an email inviting me to do a in person interview at HQ in Basking Ridge. All day interview where first part is a 1 on 1 with someone from the finance department and another 1 on 1 with someone from HR. The 2nd part of the day is situational interview where you have to work as a team to solve a problem to a scenario. About a month and a half later, received my offer.

    The process was very long. I was originally phone screened in November 2013 with a Staffing Company and then had another phone interview in January. After these interviews, I was invited to come to the office for an event that took place for about 3-4 hours. This included a group exercise, an interview, a question & answer panel and lunch.
