Internal Audit Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Verizon.
Interview Details Had a face-2-face interview for an open position with the company a couple of years ago.
The phone interview went very well and was asked to attend a face-to-face interview, which I thought went well. The Hiring Manager was very pleasant and sounded very positive about my prospects.
However, despite a number of follow-up emails with the third party recruiters, I never received any response or feedback. I'm not so bothered about not being offered the role as I went on to something better, however, I was very disappointed at the fact that the company were not courteous enough to provide me with any feedback following the process. Shameful really.. Probably a good indication of the potential working environment.
Interview Question – None - mix of competency and background. Answer Question

Director Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Verizon.
Interview Details Very rigorous interview process. HR is driving it to be 100% behavioral-based. Questions have been standardized for each job title. Recruiters are overloaded and very slow to respond. So are the HR Business Partners.
Interview Question – I was asked four separate times if EVRYTHING on my application was truthful. And then they came back and compared what I told them with what was on my application and what the background check showed, even for very minor discrepancies. Not unusual to have to provide a W2. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There is limited room to negotiate. I had very high leverage and only got an additional $5k/year + $10k signing bonus.
Very Easy Interview
Lead Software Developer Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Verizon in May 2012.
Interview Details I was placed into Verizon through Disys, a horrible contracting company. My contact at Verizon wanted to hire me as a FTE right away, but his management made him go through a very scummy contracting company. I was treated well by Verizon and terribly by Disys. The interview process was bizarre: I was asked no technical questions at all. They tried to convert me to an employee (at a rank ABOVE even MTS-4) but neither my boss, nor his, nor even his above him the director, was allowed to hire anyone. I ended up in a lead position and then two years after I was brought on, senior management freaked out and fired all IT contractors and a huge number of regular employees, even from groups that were growing and profitable like mine. We were in the middle of a release, and I was their lead and their defacto release manager. My director was told he could keep me, but they went behind his back and fired every single contractor, reneging on their word to him. I could have walked at that point, but I had friends on the team, so I put in 120 hours in the remaining 8 days (including a holiday) trying to get the release into shape and making sure everything was covered. I was doing the job of three people there, and everyone was devastated. I got a nice going-away party etc etc etc. Upper management are fools for treating creative staff like interchangeable parts; the layoff culture there is poisonous. That even my director was not dealt with honestly by upper management gives me no confidence in them whatsoever. That said, everyone I worked with at Verizon on my immediate team, and management to the first three levels above me, were all great people. But everything above them is a madhouse. They keep making fewer people do more and more work, and it doesn't hold together. The technical debt is staggering.
Interview Question – The oddest question was whether I understood that they were a big company. They did not ask actual programming questions. I wish they had: the overseas elements were very very bad programmers, and us onshore people were constantly having to mop up after them. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I negotiated for higher pay, which Verizon were quick to say yes to. However, Disys docked me for health care I didn't receive, even including overtime (but charged Verizon the full amount), so it didn't work out very well. Contract work is being misused here by both parties, and the government needs to crack down on it.
