I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Genworth Financial (Richmond, VA) in December 2010.
I originally had a phone interview with Genworth after I had received an email from them asking to set one up with me. Then at the end of the phone interview they said that based on my answers they would like to have me in for anon-site interview. I went to the on-site interview and interviewed with four people total. First, me and two other people and then another interview were it was me and two other people. I was also given a tour of the Genworth campus.
After the interviews were over I left and was told that I would be contacted. Later I received a call from Genworth saying that they would like to extend me an offer. I accepted it.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Genworth Financial (Phoenix, AZ) in December 2010.
Interviewed by hiring manager as well as select peers/team members. Fairly standard interview questions; nothing I haven't heard previously. Overall the vibe is laid back during interviewing process. Just be prepared for a lot of questions, as the interview process tends to include hiring manager, team members, other managers on related teams, president, and HR director.
- Nothing complex; just be prepared for a high volume of questions, as they tend to have a candidate interview with MULTIPLE people, often in panel-style (more than one person asking questions). Answer Question
They tend to pay more than the industry average; negotiation not necessary.

The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Genworth Financial (Richmond, VA) in August 2010.
After completing an internship I gave a final presentation and went through two 30 minute interviews. The internship program is a great opportunity to demonstrate your abilities. I exposed myself to as many people as possible throughout the summer and when I got into the final interviews my interviewers already knew lots about me as well as what I had worked on throughout the summer.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Genworth Financial (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2010.
The interview process starts with a phone interview. Once you have made it passed that you will be invited to the office in Phoenix to complete a gauntlet of four additional interviews. One will be with potential co-workers who will likely ask questions that hint at the job itself. One with a potential team leader, who will likely ask questions about your experience. Then two more with upper management to gauge your demeanor and attitude.
- None of the questions are terribly difficult but they are very interested in "quality" and "accuracy." Any examples to that affect are met well. Answer Question
I did not attempt to negotiate

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Genworth Financial (Richmond, VA) in June 2010.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genworth Financial (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2010.
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.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Genworth Financial (Richmond, VA) in May 2009.
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.
