    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Verisign (Reston, VA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    1 hr phone interview followed by 1 hr in person. The in person interview was a panel interview with the entire team. It was sort of rapid fire with each member on the team asking technical questions. The hiring manager on the team did not ask any questions. He not have anytime for the interviewee to ask any question to the team either.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sterling, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Verisign (Sterling, VA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Phone screen with hiring manager. Weird experience here. They simply asked 2 technical questions to determine if they want to bring you in. I was brought on site for 4 interviews.

    Total lack of interest shown by interviewers on site. They had no interest in learning about you and simply asked their pre-determined questions. No brain teasers but most of which were impractical questions.

    Recruiter or hiring manager mis represented the job responsibilities. I did not feel the position fit the description I was interviewing for.

    There is not standard interview process. It depends from department to department. Mostly questions will be from your CV/Resume. Specially c/c++ and Java. Most of the company projects are c/c++ and java based.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Good interview process. Totally spoke to 5 interviewers and a manager and Vice President. They ask technical questions and management questions. They also ask a few behavioral questions. Typically they ask problem solving questions and ask you to go into the architecture of your most complex product or module you have implemented and start drilling down on that.
