I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Symantec in December 2009.
Interview Details – The interview was mostly based on my resume, describing the projects i worked on in graduate school and the challenges that went with it. It was a friendly interview and lasted only 1 hour.
Interview Question – Nothing really. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I tried to negotiate but they did not have any wriggle room.
Very Difficult Interview
The process took a day - interviewed at Symantec in October 2011.
Interview Details – Was referred to the hiring manager, contacted him, and set up an interview. Interview was 1 on 4, and consisted of mainly technical questions, also some code writing on a whiteboard, and a couple more standard questions as well. Interview went well, and they indicated they'd get an offer out to me within a couple days. One month later, an offer finally arrived, but by that time I had already accepted elsewhere. They have a nice building and nice staff, but I got the feeling that they are severely understaffed and highly stressed.
Interview Question – How would you go about finding the security vulnerabilities in our 2 million lines of code? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Took longer than promised to receive the official offer.
