I tried looking for threads on this topic but found none. I am applying for a position with Verizon Wireless and have a phone interview this Wednesday. I have a lot of wireless sales experience (Sprint, AT&T). Here is the thing, this is my THIRD INTERVIEW, in other words this is my third time in 2 years. I never make it past the face to face interview. I always pass the phone interview, HR always likes me. The problem is when I get to the face to face, it's always the same Area manager. This guy is a complete asshole. He's self-centered, obese and rude. Last time he told me that getting hired there was like winning the lottery, WOW! He only asked me 3 questions and the rest of the time was spent talking about himself... So my question is, in the event that I get him again, which I probably will, how do I overcome him and will he view my persistence as a good quality? Thanks in advance.
