Cable Splicing Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Verizon in June 2010.

Interview Details phone interview was asked simple skills questions application was filled out in person. I had to submit and app, then i waited VZ(bell atlantic at the time), to call with job offers. Several offers were made before they called wih a job i was qualified for. I'm pretty sure that the process is more advanced now, probably more online and less phone contact . I filled out an application, took a basic skills test and a more advanced test for the cable splicing position. Prior knowledge would have been nice but was not necessary. The test seem to be more about your propensity to learn and adapt, rather than what you actually knew.

Interview Question – there was a flow chart on the test, and if you answered one question wrong every answer after it would have been wrong also. don't remember much, it was 15 years ago   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiations, they put out the offer, and i had to either accept or decline.

Difficult Interview

Fiber Customer Support Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Newport News, VA (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Verizon in April 2014.

Interview Details I applied online and in two weeks I got a email about signing up for some initial testing. The first test was like the SAT or an IQ test. There is also a personality test that's within it. Then if you pass that you take a computer knowledge test, which has questions similar to the A+ exam. Then I was called the next day to set up a "structured interview", which was basically a face-to-face interview. They told me a recruiter would call me, but they never did. The structured interview involved two people reading questions out of a booklet and writting down your answers. They then score your answers to determine if you pass.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time a customer was angry, how you handled it and what the result.   Answer Question
