    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ArcSight in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I went to the job fair and had a screening interview. After about a week later they call me for on site interview. I arrived about 10 minutes before the interview. I walked in the building and sign in with front desk receptionist and was told my interview will be in 15 minutes. About 20 or 25 minutes later one of their manager came and told me that the interview is cancelled for that day but someone will contact me shortly to reschedule the interview. I said ok and went back home. Days later I called the contact person I had from email and was told they don't want to continue the interview process with me. There is no reason given.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ArcSight in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    One of the guys there who interviewed me is very arrogant, he only talked to me 5 minutes, then left me with a piece of paper of technical questions, he also gave me some homework(write a program and email him the code) to do.

    Considering a compensation below the industry average, it's totally a waste of time.
