Senior Support Engineer Interview

Senior Support Engineer
Blanchardstown (Ireland)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Symantec in January 2014.

Interview Details – A very informal contact.I received an phone call and had a chat with the HR guy we then arranged an interview.
The interview involved 2 department heads and was also very relaxed and informal I actually felt very overdressed for the interview.This was due to the relaxed nature of the site.
