    Finance Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reston, VA
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Verisign in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Got an email for the HR rep that she wanted to set me up for a phone interview. A week later I got a half hour call from the Manager in the department I was going to be working for. It went well, he asked a bunch of knowledge questions, personality questions, strengths and weaknesses, and situational questions. It went well because a few days later I got another call from the HR rep and was told they wanted to bring me in for an in-person interview. I met with 5 different people from the few departments that I was going to be jumping around with in the Finance department and talked to each person for about half hour. Total interview was a little over 2 hours. It went really well and the next day I was offered the position!

    Interview Questions
    • Some people like to say finance, accounting, and economics are all grouped together as the same; what are the true differences between them and how does each link to the other?   Answer Question

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dulles, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dulles, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Verisign in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview was over the phone with the hiring manager (non-US based) and received very prompt positive feedback, but needed to wait two more weeks due to scheduling challenges of other interviewers. On-site, in-person interviews were then scheduled and ended up meeting with three different individuals (co-workers and VP of group). Received more positive feedback, but working with the internal recruiter took a few more weeks as we worked through salary and role expectation reviews. Received offer and accepted, entire process took five weeks from initial contact to office acceptance.

    Interview Questions
    • Please provide an example of a program you've had to manage from start to completion and highlight some of the hurdles you had to overcome. How did you overcome those hurdles?   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Verisign in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and then had a phone screen with a recruiter. From there I was invited onsite for an interview with: 1) The hiring manager, 2) The team I would be directly working with, 3) Another colleague in the department. The interviews were about an hour with the hiring manager and team and about 30 minutes with the colleague. I found people to be very forthright about the opportunity and the environment. From there I received an offer within a few days of completing the interivew. The background check process took about a week and a half and it is VERY in depth.
