    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Symantec (Pune (India)).

    Interview

    After a technical round consisting of English, Maths, Aptitude, SQL and Programming, I got a call for face-2-face interviews on the next day.

    On reaching for interviews, we had to rate ourselves according to technologies.
    I rated myself equally in C and Java.

    The interviewer gave me the freedom to write and explain programs in any technologies. I chose java. Later I came to know that the interviewer was looking for C candidates. If they had specified this previously, I could have given answers in C.

    Overall a good experience. Management by HR was very bad. Made to wait too long.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Symantec.

    Interview

    Total 6 technical rounds. First two rounds are on webex. Followed by a F2F round.
    The Webex rounds are taken by senior technical members or managers. Problem solving, multi threading and design patterns are the topics they focus on.
    The F2F round is of 4 hours. The interviews keep on asking various questions without any break. I felt that the interviewers in the F2F round were not interested in understanding the potential of the candidate but to show case their knowledge.

First there was a written technical exam. 20 MCQ and 5 Programming questions. We complted our exam by 11. The exam was easy and they made us waiting till 4 o clock. And finally they called around 10-15 people and said "you guys can go now, if you are selected will let you know by next week". And to remaining people they said , you guys are not selected and you can go now. I did well in written but dont know what happen. Last year they said to me the same, "you cleared first round, will let you know the next procedure by next week". I waited entire week, and I dint get any response, when I called the HR he said, sorry you are not selected. Both time, it was reakly frustrated.
