    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Symantec in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Pretty simple process. Met them at a campus career fair and followed up later with an online application. Had a quick screening call with the hr manager then one 30 minute phone interview with the department manager. Got the offer a week later. I was applying for a non-technical position so they were looking more for fit and experience than technical knowledge.
