At Verizon Communications we seek to hire those who are collaborative by nature. How do you get along in a team based environment?
The interviewer would like for you to demonstrate that you can work well in a team-based and collaborative environment. Use a real-life example from a time when you have worked in a team based environment.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I love working in a team-based environment. I enjoy bouncing ideas off others and the camaraderie that comes with being part of a high functioning team. As a Telecommunications Specialist, there are many times where I'm required to work alone, troubleshooting a technical problem off-site. I've received feedback from previous managers who have noted I'm particularly malleable and can work well independently and as part of a team."
Michelle's Answer #2
"Whether I am doing an independent project, or working in a team environment, I always give my best. I enjoy the camaraderie of working in a team, but I can be successful working autonomously as well. I love that Verizon's culture focuses on the meaningful relationships team members build; Verizon team members say they love the people they work with, which is important to me."

Tell me a little about how you think Verizon's launch of 5G Ultra Wideband will shape our future business.
Talk to the interviewer about your thoughts on how this innovation positions Verizon for success. Before the interview, take the time to research how the company is growing and shaping its business so that you have an informed opinion.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"This is a really exciting development for Verizon. There's been a lot of buzz about 5G lately, and definitely with good reason. It has the potential to revolutionize the way we live, work and play. But Verizon is the first and only company to really bring this experience to life for customers through integrating the network with massive spectrum holdings and end-to-end fiber resources. After all, 5G is only as good as the network it runs on, and Verizon has put in the research, work and development to make the experience seamless for the end user."
Michelle's Answer #2
"I think this is a game-changer for Verizon. I know the company has worked for years to make sure all the right pieces are in place to make a 5G experience a reality for its customers. After all, a company can't just decide it wants to offer 5G and be ready in a few months. It takes years of deliberate planning, testing, and innovation, which it sounds like Verizon has invested in. From what I've been able to research, it looks as though Verizon's 5G Ultra Wideband network is the only network with the power to usher in the fourth industrial revolution."

Do you see yourself as a leader? When have you led a team?
Perhaps you have led a club at work, been a coach for a youth sports team, or were on the advisory board for a non-profit organization. You should always be prepared to show the interviewer that you have a natural ability to lead others. Whether you have led a group of 500 or a team of 2, you must display to the interviewer that you are capable of handling the responsibility that comes with being a leader and mentor.

Talk about your desire to be a leader. Share with the interviewer that you strive to be a role model for others. Explain that you jump at the opportunity to lead groups, encourage your counterparts, and be a face of the organization when challenges arise.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"In my current position, I am the president of the social committee. I love that I have the opportunity to encourage employee engagement while being a positive influence on the workplace culture. I am a natural leader because I start with leading by example. As a leader, I make myself available to others who need mentor-ship, a bit of assistance in adjusting to their role, or just a listening ear when they've had a tough day. I am confident in my leadership abilities and look forward to joining your team in a leadership role."
Michelle's Answer #2
"I definitely see myself as a leader. Not only have I managed a team in two prior roles, but also I believe that leadership does not always equate to management. I am sure to lead at all times by providing the best model, enthusiasm, and work-ethic of the organization. I am open to new ideas and love to tackle a new project which, to me, embodies leadership."

How would you handle a situation where your Verizon supervisor did not properly communicate information to you?
Others don't always communicate with you in the style that you would prefer. Talk to the interviewer about a time when you have handled a supervisor who does not interact with you in a way that you like or that is clear to you.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Whenever I have had a supervisor who does not properly communicate with me, I first try to learn their style of communication and emulate it. I also try to ask a lot of questions and document instructions in writing as much as possible in order to make sure I'm understanding."
Michelle's Answer #2
"I try to be independent and find as many answers as possible on my own. As much as I would love to always work with supervisors who are great communicators, that is not always a realistic ask. I also try to repeat instructions just to verify that I'm hearing and interpreting what the supervisor really wants."
5.
When have you worked among a diverse group of people?
Are you accustomed to working with a very large or diverse team of individuals? Assure the interviewer that you can handle an environment that offers diversity.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have worked with diverse groups of people most of my career. I am most comfortable, and happy, in this type of environment because it offers a great learning opportunity. Overall, I'm accustomed to being around people who aren't exactly like me, and I've been able to learn from exposure to a lot of different perspectives. I look forward to being part of Verizon's commitment to fostering an inclusive environment."
Michelle's Answer #2
"In my current company, we have a very diverse group of people that range in age, race, experience, gender and more. I embrace it fully. I love that Verizon takes pride in its talented and diverse team of people who focus on customers every day. Their combined intelligence, spirit and creativity make Verizon a great place to work, learn and grow."
