    I bet that email had a copy of our credo right? The phone interview will consist of them verifying your application and making sure everything is correct. Verizon Wireless is very strict on integrity, honesty, your dates you worked for previous companies, salaries, everything all has to be correct. They will also probably ask you a few cookie cutter questions. My advice that my friend gave me before I got hired was to read the credo and incorporate a little bit of it into your answers. Not obviously, just with subtlety. I did it. You're past the hardest part already, this is the 2nd hardest. Most applicants get their applications tossed without getting an interview.

    Good luck, let us know how it turns out.

    I think they stopped hiring people in San Diego, Ca because when circuit city closed all the reps that worked there had to be placed in the stand alone verizon stores so I guess I'm sol.

    They'll ask you some personality questions and ask you to explain what you've done in blah blah situation. Sometimes the questions are really vague, so don't be afraid to ask them to explain what they mean by the question if it's really watered down. Mostly, just be honest.

    StayFly, it's the same where I'm at. Hiring is essentially frozen and internal promotions is going very slow since our employee base is currently flooded.

    Well if you do get it hopefully you become a knowledgeable, non-lazy, customer-first store rep.

    True, I think our stores might be hiring as well. Sometimes you just have to get a foot in the door

    Yes but in CS/Tech you don't have to worry with the quotas per say. It went up to 90% instead of 70% in the CAR/TN region. Just something to be aware of.

    If possible, get into telesales. You do not want retail.

    Right but if you don't meet the quota you don't get fired you get "promoted" to customer service which is the same job im doing now! lol

    from what I've been told, if you don't make your numbers, you just get shown the door....especially if there aren't CSR spots open to convert you into.....I volunteered to shift from a sales spot to CSR spot to get away from quotas, less money but much better job stability....

    Still waiting. I spoke to HR a couple weeks ago and they said they are still in the 1st round of interviews and that I would be hearing from someone in HR for the next step. I guess if it was a no I would have gotten a letter in the mail?
