    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • 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

    Negotiation

    They tend to pay more than the industry average; negotiation not necessary.

    Interview

    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.

    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.

    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.
