Senior Systems Engineer Interview

Senior Systems Engineer
Overland Park, KS

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Symantec in April 2010.

Interview Details – extensive online application, with submission of cover letter and resume
Hr screening 30 minutes by phone
non-hiring manager (later found out a senior manager as the hiring manager was a newbie manager) 60 + minute phone interview, EXCELLENT interviewing style and interpersonal skills. Basically I was a perfect fit for the position and company culture and told me I would be on the short list.
30 minute interview with hiring manager, asked questions you would find by google'ing 'interview questions' and although I answered 'by the book' ie correctly there was just no synergy between us. on 3 followup calls a continuation of obvious lack to sync between us lead to form letter.

I would not hesistate to apply with symantec again or advise anyone else against it. Corporate culture seems great and it has good and current products.
