Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Symantec (Culver City, CA) in July 2014.

Interview

A recruiter reached out to me regarding open position at Symantec. The recruiter worked quickly to set up 1 phone screenings and quickly move to an onsite interview. Everything was done in less than a week. Everything was pretty standard in terms of questioning. Coding exercises, data structure, algorithm, basic demonstrations and verbal descriptions of software solutions was chiefly the way to go. The team that I interviewed with was very supportive too. It was one of the quickest interview I ever had and the interviewer was easy to talk with

Second interview was conducted by two people and it was mostly technical. The third interview was comparatively informal. Thereafter, I was contacted by the HR about the decision within a week and I joined within 3 weeks.
