I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Symantec in March 2013.
Interview Details –
First I got a call from HR, saying that first round of interview has been scheduled. He also assured my availability. Then I got the first round confirmation mail.
First Round Experience:
It was more technical and questions were just coming at me non stop. It lasted for around 2 hours. Questions were mostly based on what I had written down on my resume. Projects which I had done in my graduation, which subjects were interesting, Data Structures, Linux & windows OS, Programming(JAVA/C++) and little bit of Networking concepts.
After I cleared first round, I was asked to leave and was told that the feedback will be communicated by HR. Next day I got a call from HR for Round 2.
Second Round Experience:
It was basically little less technical but here I was given couple of programs to be written and explaining logic to senior engineers. Programs were mainly on trees and linked lists. After I completed this round I was asked to wait for some time.
Third Round Experience:
It was a general discussion with the Manager and I was selected.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Symantec in December 2010.
Interview Details – Process started with an initial call with the in-house recruiter. From there I had a brief phone screen with the hiring manager. Then face-to-face with the hiring manager.

Process gave me a good opportunity to meet folks in the organization and give me a good feel for the job and the culture of the team.
