    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Verisign in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and then had a phone screen with a recruiter.

The interviews were about an hour with the hiring manager and team and about 30 minutes with the colleague. I found people to be very forthright about the opportunity and the environment. From there I received an offer within a few days of completing the interivew. The background check process took about a week and a half and it is VERY in depth.
