    Web Development Engineer Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Genworth Financial in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    I first had a phone interview where HR went through my resume and asked me a couple of technical and behavioral questions. Overall I bombed the phone interview, yet was invited to drive to Richmond to do several 1:1 interviews. Once there I met with several management type people, including the CTO. The questions ranged from softball questions, to really hard ones that I wasn't expected to know. Overall it went rather well I feel.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Genworth Financial in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the role online, directly from the company's website. After a day or two, I recieved an email from an HR representative requesting a phone screen. After completing the 20 minute phonescreen, i was invited in for an initial in - person sceening interview the following week. After completing that, I was invityed backa third time for a half day session of interviews with the immediate hiring manager, several upper level managers, one company execuitve, and a final panelist interview. Everyone at the company was very professional and polite, and the interview questions qwere fair and pointed. No real curveballs. I prepared for the interview by researching the company (and the interviewers, as much as was possible). The role did happen to fit my skill -set, so nothing was really a stretch.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lynchburg, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Lynchburg, VA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Genworth Financial in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    I was an employee referral for an executive assistant opening. The initial phone interview was used as a screening interview. The next phase was with an HR representative. The interview was difficult and monotonous. The HR rep never varied her style or type of questions. It was strictly a situational interview. Based on her "What would you do if this happened" questions, it was my impression that the hiring manager was either difficult to work with or that I would be handling nothing but problem situations day after day.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Genworth Financial.

    Interview Details

    I learned about the opportunity through an on-campus career fair and got an interview through the campus career website. I interviewed with the company when they returned to campus a week or so after. The initial on campus interview was very straight forward and behavioral. I was then invited to an on campus interview around 2 weeks after. The on campus process consisted of two 30 minute interviews, a campus tour, then lunch. The first interview was a 1 on 1 with a walk through the resume and behavioral feel. The second interview was with two finance managers, and was much more education and finance specific.
