    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Check Point Software Technologies in September 2014.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Check Point Software Technologies in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was quite simple but did require meeting with several members of management and presenting to the engineering staff. Once done with the interview process it took about 1 month for the background checks to finalize before an official offer was made. Well worth the wait - best company ever!

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Check Point Software Technologies in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    Started out getting a cold call from the recruiter, scheduled a next day phone interview. Phone interview went well, flew out for a day of on-site interviews shortly after. On-site interviews were a mix of applied problems, one on one design talks, and fairly technical field-specific questions.

    The interviews were interesting and fun, the people were friendly and smart, and the whole process was much more enjoyable than any other interview processes I've had.
