I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Symantec in February 2014.
Interview Details – The recruiter worked quickly to set up a phone screenings and an onsite interview. Everything was pretty standard in terms of questioning. Coding exercises, basic demonstrations and verbal descriptions of software solutions was chiefly the way to go. The team that I interviewed with was very supportive too. Overall, it was very pleasant.
Interview Question – Nothing really worth mentioning. =) Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Basically, my desired compensation was not matched. Pretty disappointing but no hard feelings about it all.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Symantec in March 2012.
Interview Details – First I got the chance to speak to two students currently on placement with the company, who were there to relax me and answer any questions I had. This was not part of the interview.
I was then taken in for my interview with one line manager and one senior manager. They asked me questions about my CV along with a few others, but nothing particularly difficult. They explained the available roles to me and asked which I would be most interested in.
