    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Verisign (Reston, VA).

    Interview

    Interview was from 12pm-4pm. From 12pm to 1pm you go out to eat with the interviewer in reston town center. Then you return and they start a practical. They will ask you a few questions then start the practical. They connect a computer to the TV and watch you complete the practical. No googling allowed. They will act friendly and all during the lunch but don't let that make you think you have the job. They will grill you on the practical with stupid questions. They love it if you know design patterns and algorithms. The practical is timed. The interviewers are nerds and awkward. A lot of awkward silence. Be prepared. Know algorithms, Design Patterns, Python, MongoDB. They also won't return your calls or emails if you do not qualify. Rude.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Verisign (Reston, VA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Received a phone call from a recruiter talking about the position. Then had a phone interview for tech screening with one of their programmer team, asked some fundamental questions about network protocols, big O notation and some basic programming questions. Got the notice for an on-site interview the same day. One week later, had the onsite interview at their Reston headquarter, interview lasted about 4 hours with 6 people in a 6 rounds 1 on 1 interview. Each lasted 30 min. The interview went pretty smooth, had most of the questions prepared and answered. Had not received any feedback after the interview, thought I got rejected in a silent way. I don't think that is professional.

    Interview Questions
