    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Check Point Software Technologies.

    Interview

    I found the initial phone screen and interview process to be straight forward and professionally managed. I have experienced the gamut over my career, from companies that on multiple occasions neglected to inform me about scheduled phone interviews to organized interviews with an agenda. Check Point fell at the high end. Interviews started on time. I understood the process. Interviewers were polite and fair. On the less positive side, Check Point has some interesting hiring requirements. They required that I submit my W2 for the past two years, which I found odd and mildly offensive. I decided to go ahead and do it largely because the information is probably available elsewhere. Also, the recruiter would not discuss benefits with me until I was formally offered the job.

    The initial position applied for was a contract position. After a phone interview with the recruiter my resume was passed on to Diamond Services instead. One of the managers called me for a very engaging phone interview, which was followed by an email invitation to an in-person panel interview with several members of management.

    • Some of the technical questions on the skills test were obscure. Otherwise the interview was very comfortable.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Check Point Software Technologies (Chicago, IL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    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!

    There was no possibility of negotiation.
