Interview Details

Interviewer was Director level and pretty much lifeless, like he didn't want to be there (and this was a Sales Director). Style was like a newby reading from "interviewing for Dummies". First question was "do you know what we do" followed by..."what are your strengths"? "What are your weaknesses"? "Tell me something about yourself" etc. Once you answered a question he'd repeatedly ask "what else?" over and over. It's all the generic interviewing 101 questions. Spend some time on their site so you can answer the "what do we do" question and have 3-4 answers for each question cause he'll keepasking "what else"? Also, Their competitors are listed as Cisco, McAfee and Websense but they view Cisco as their biggest threat as Cisco came up a often.
