    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Verisign in May 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed w/recruiter over the phone. At one point HE was interrupted and left me holding on the phone for 15 minutes. I believe His ability to make a connection with me as an applicant was impaired by the interruption. I felt he was going thru the motion as he begin to tell me what type of person "they needed". I did not feel good about the organization when we concluded our discussion but had to remind myself I was a employee referral and the employee spoke very highly of the organization. The recruiter has yet to follow-up with a courtesy email to advise the organization is not interested.
