Software Quality Assurance Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Symantec (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2012.

Interview

Was contacted by a recruiter due to my resume posting online. Two phone interviews, once with the recruiter, second with hiring manager. Flew out to Los Angeles and met with the staff for a day of meetings/interviews. Some were casual, like a lunch with development staff that was pretty much just feeling me out, others were more technical. Received an offer a few days after flying back home.

Interview Questions

  • There were many logic based questions. I would later learn, after being on the other side of the interview process, that this team liked to ask very difficult or impossible questions just to see how you would try to work through them. They weren't concerned with an answer, just your ability to try and work through it.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Initial offer was substantial enough that I accepted without further negotiation. Received generous starting salary, plus full relocation and a nice stock package.
