    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Genworth Financial.

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    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.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Genworth Financial in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    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 diffuse a difficult situation.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    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.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Genworth Financial in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very basic interview where 3 people asked me questions like "tell us about yourself" as it relates to the description. They also gave me an overview of the position and what they're looking for/expecting. Although I didn't have exact experience in their field I did my best answering with what experience I did have. A few questions about what I would do if blank. What does customer service mean to you etc. It was with a temp agency and got the call I got it less than an hour later.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Genworth Financial in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Process consisted off. applying through a job agency and an initial screening interview with them. One face to face interview at the head office, where i was mostly asked fit questions. I was meant to have a follow up interview with the HR head but we didn't bother. I got an offer within 7 days, process was very fast and efficient and wasn't cluttered with unnecessary testing as the role was very junior.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing that unexpected, lots of generic interview questions "why should we hire you" etc etc   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    i didn't negotiate and i doubt i would have been able to as the role was very junior
