Where do I start? Reverse racism, little chance for advancement, very political and Verizon is allowed to move you 35 miles away at any point so there’s usually a long commute. Forced overtime and management and occupational workers usually are st each other’s throats. Little to no relevant training, they just throw you to the wolves. Metrics are all that matter. Stress is extremely high. Good pay ($40+ per hour) is the only thing that keeps people there. Inside jobs are like being in jail and outside techs have GPS on their vans. Good luck if you decide to work there, you’re gonna need it!

I have read the majority if these reviews. I agree with the process. I consider myself to be very articulate, smart and punctual. However, I can never pass the test. There were employees that were hired and later terminated. I would like to know where I didn't do well. Coach me. If this happens, this would show you who's determined or not. Ive been applying off and on since 2015.

Work for sales is grueling. I was management and was told by district manager to always have someone on a write up even if everyone was performing or else i would be written up. They force you to sell things to customers that don’t want it. Customers then complain and they take the customers side. Beware if you are a customer don’t buy anything that you didn’t come in for. They will pressure the heck out of you to get you to buy more than you need. Customers use profanity and sometimes racist remakes, was told by leadership that if they didn’t allow it, we would have no more customers.

Start appreciating your loyal employees and stop laying off at least 15% of your employees twice a year. Nothing says we care about our employees like letting them go after 20 years right before Thanksgiving.

Majority of questions are based on situational experiences,,,ie tell us about a time where you went against the company views to address a customer need. so look at your background for situations , what YOU did and how you solved everything was resolved to satisfaction. Your answer is then graded by all the interviewers objectively. So you may bring more to the table but dont have some good stories and lose out or vice versa. They are not the only company that does this .
