    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Verisign.

    Interview

    Had a 30 minute phone interview with a recruiter. Was rather informal compared to normal interviews. He asked me some of the standard behavioral questions but mainly it was about my experience with the technology I have used and they use and whether I could become comfortable with it. It seemed more like this call was simply them confirming that I seemed a good fit and that they had already chosen me before. I heard back from them the next day with an offer, but had to decline as I could not afford to relocate at the time.

    Interview Questions

    • What languages are you comfortable with?
      What environments do you work in?
      How do you feel about working in groups?
      Etc.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Verisign.

    Interview

    Started with Phone interview that lasted around 40 minutes. Asked some standard interview questions. After two weeks, I was informed that I am not suitable for this position, but that hiring manager felt that I could be a good fit for another role. So I was referred to another hiring manager and we arranged a site interview with him and his team, and I got the offer shortly after. The people working at Verisign are friendly and professional and I had an enjoyable time working with them :)

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Good interview process. Totally spoke to 5 interviewers and a manager and Vice President. They ask technical questions and management questions. They also ask a few behavioral questions. Typically they ask problem solving questions and ask you to go into the architecture of your most complex product or module you have implemented and start drilling down on that.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Verisign (Reston, VA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    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!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Verisign (Dulles, VA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    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.
