    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Genworth Financial.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was pretty good. Started with a phone screen, then had a first round interview with the hiring managers, 2 additional managers, and the hiring managers manager. The second round interview consisted of a short interview with the hiring manager then an offer was made a couple of days later.

    Interview Questions
    • All of the questions were basic interview questions you would find online. One question that stood out was for me to explain a technical accounting term in lei mans language which would display how you could explain accounting concepts to a non-accounting person.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They used the potential for a bonus to get you to the amount you asked for. Which is okay, you may or may not get the full amount of the bonus every year, just depends on the overall company performance.

    IT Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Genworth Financial.

    Interview Details

    After a recruiter (third part vendor) screening I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Then was called in for a full day interview. Had a 6 hour interview, total of 6, one hour sessions. Met with 8 people total, all face to face and one interviewed me on phone from different location. Except for 1 VP level person, all others were not even fit to be interviewing. One interviewer asked a question on SEI-CMM for which he did not know the answer. After I explained to him about the different levels, he blurted out" thanks for explaining, I did not know that'.

    No question was out of the ordinary. If you look up on the internet on the top 20 interview questions, you should do well. Almost all interviewers asked "tell me about yourself" and "why should we pick you".

    My 3th interview was an interview with sandwich for lunch. So stupid (also very cheap). How could one eat and talk at the same time. The interviewers took their sandwich to eat after the interview. They forced me to eat, but I could hardly nibble.

    Interview Questions
    • One question that was repeated by 3 people because of the position was "How will you convince others of your plan/method/path or how will you sell your idea?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate and bump my base up by 4 % and I accepted the offer. The whole process (between the first call and the start date) took 2 months with about 2-3 weeks between each process.
