    Senior Compliance Support Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Genworth (Richmond, VA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online in April 2017. I was contacted by the compliance recruiter within a week. The next week, he called me for a phone screen. Two days later I had a second round phone screen with the hiring manager. The hiring manager was very friendly and direct; which I appreciated. The only thing he asked me was what I knew about the company. As a current compliance analyst, my job is to research so I researched everything I could about Genworth and answered his question with ease. I spoke about the current acquisition in progress, the dozen regulatory agencies in the US and China that need to approve the deal, the background on China Oceanwide, the current ratings of the company, the services, target customers, etc. I think that he was impressed. The phone screen was about 20 minutes long. About a week later, I was contacted by the compliance recruiter saying that I had made it to the final round. The final round was scheduled May 24th- two days before my birthday. It was a rotating interview. The first group was a three person panel. They were extremely friendly and seemed like great people to work with. The second round was two women that were also friendly and interested in what I had to say. The third round was with the hiring manager's boss. I would have to say that out of the 25+ interviews I've had in my life, I was most blown away by him. He was dynamic, drew on my resume, and asked me direct questions such as "What motivates you?" and "Why do you like compliance?" and "Why aren't you getting your J.D.?". I enjoyed this approach. Everything he was saying about the potential for this role, how he wants it to evolve over time, and how he wants me to hand it back completely different... It really solidified that this role was the perfect role for me, my talents, skills, wants, and future. The last round was with the hiring manager himself. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to speak at this round. After he finished talking, I only had four minutes to sum up why I was the best fit. All in all, after the interview, I felt great. I was told that that they were impressed with me, that I had great energy, that I was the most organized interviewee that they had ever had, etc. I left feeling great. After the interview, I sent my thank you emails and waited. The recruiter said I would know something within a week. My birthday came and went and so did the next week. I followed up with the recruiter and didn't get a response for four days. On the fourth day, he told me I'd hear something by the end of the week. I didn't receive any update. Three weeks went by and I finally got the rejection call on 6/14/17. I was told that while the panel was impressed with me, they decided to have other interviews after the day the finalists came in (5/24/17). The call was just to say that they "went with another candidate". At this point, I was prepared for the call and I asked for individual feedback. I was told that there wasn't any feedback and that they just went with someone else. I respect their decision and wish the lucky person who got the job tremendous success and happiness, but I would still like some feedback. I feel like I nailed the interview, have direct experience, what wasn't I seeing?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Genworth (Lynchburg, VA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an out of city recruiter for a telephone interview, which is feasible. A questionnaire was also required, of which, is an excellent idea. However, the recruiter called me twice to convey to me that I was not chosen, which conveys to me, a lack of professionalism and organizational skills.

    Actuarial Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Genworth (Richmond, VA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    While I did not get an offer for what I am sure are valid and legitimate reasons, I still felt that aspects of this interview process were not professional. There were 3 separate interviews that consisted of pairs of interviewers.
    -One interviewer of the 6 was not present
    -One interviewer talked poorly of the actuarial profession and his experience, which was something that I as an actuarial student needed to hear, but probably not during an interview
    -Another interviewer was on their phone for a good chunk of time,
     -Another interviewer had to conduct the beginning of the interview on their own while
    waiting for the second interviewer to arrive and was clearly uncomfortable conducting it on his own, as he did not ask good questions nor really listen to my answers
    Overall, the interview process as a whole left me seeing Genworth Financial in a negative light. They said they would get back to me in a single week, but they did not and at 2 weeks
    I had to call to find out their decision.
