Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Symantec in November 2009.

Interview Details

I had two interviews and was offer the position. First interview was run by peers, was a round table with 3 other Sr Support techs. They all asked in depth technical questions, some were specific and others were open ended to see how you would approach a situation.
Second Interview was only with the hiring manager, I had passed the technical portion and this was more of who am I and where do I want to go.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Symantec in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    The overall hiring process was great. The HR representative made me feel welcome during the interview which made the interview less stressful. Additionally, the interview with the hiring manager was great fun. It didn't feel like an interview but more like a couple of friends discussing work. The final phase of the interview was a technical interview with a current employee. Once again it was a relaxed atmosphere which allowed me to show my full potential
