    Financial Analyst Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Genworth Financial.

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty good. Started with a phone screen, then had a first round interview with the hiring managers, 2 additional managers, and the hiring managers manager. The second round interview consisted of a short interview with the hiring manager then an offer was made a couple of days later.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions were basic interview questions you would find online. One question that stood out was for me to explain a technical accounting term in lei mans language which would display how you could explain accounting concepts to a non-accounting person.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They used the potential for a bonus to get you to the amount you asked for. Which is okay, you may or may not get the full amount of the bonus every year, just depends on the overall company performance.

    Interview

    Inside recruiter who was diligent and very organized, he facilitated the whole process.

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation, that had to do with the hiring manager. He would not let me start a month later so I lost out on a bonus.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Genworth Financial (Richmond, VA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Basic overview of what the job function would consist of, what the benefits were and behavior-type questions regarding "Name a time when.. you experienced a difficult customer? ..when you had to go above and beyond to help someone? ..when you had to go outside of normal procedures?

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time where you had to go above and beyond to help a customer with a request.   Answer Question
    • Name a time where you had to diffuse a difficult situation.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They were not willing to negotiate for higher pay (based on skill and experience) or a relocation bonus, since I had to move. The process involved sending emailed requests to the hiring manager. Turn-around time for responses was within the same day. Very efficient process.. probably because they needed to get people in the door in a short amount of time.

    Interview

    I received an email to schedule for a phone interview. The interview only lasted 10 minutes. The recruiter immediately denied me after finding out that I don't have my series 6 and 63. I was confused and have expressed that to her because I never said I have the certifications and definitely did not put it on my resume. I also thought it was a preferred qualifications to have.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genworth Financial (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I received an unsolicited email requesting an interview. I applied online as instructed and scheduled a time. The interviewer was casual and pleasant. For reasons I can't understand, the interviewer determined rather quickly, that I wouldn't be happy working for Genworth. I was highly qualified for the job and prepared to pursue it further. I send a thank you note reaffirming my interest but never received a reply. The same position is still advertised. I found the whole process curious.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genworth Financial in March 2008.

    Interview

    I supplied a resume through a friend. I got a call three days later. The interviewer was from HR and was the first line filter, ensuring I understood the basic requirements and job responsibilities. Cordial, and informative. If I would have been interested in pursuing the position, my next interview would have been with the hiring manager.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The level of sales support was lower than I needed. I was fairly new to the business and didn't have a large client base, so I needed marketing dollars and leads. They were looking for a sales associate with many years of experience and able to support himself with his own leads. I recognized the gap, and politely declined any further interviews.
