Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Redwood City, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Check Point Software 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.

Director Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Check Point Software.

Interview Details – Set of interviews first HR then Manager then technical testing. This can be writing code or solving some technical issue. Testing can be for full day very intense and stressful.
Be prepared to sit down and write code. They take off points if you need internet or ask questions. Limit this as much as possible.

Interview Question – Received deep technical question from Senior VP   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations, they say they don't want to turn into Shuk, The real reason is that the CEO approves the salary before the candidate gets the offer. No one wants to go back for change approval .

Inside Sales Interview

Inside Sales
Paris (France)

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Check Point Software in July 2012.

Interview Details – 1) phone interview, about our project and our salary expections, and then a meeting was given to do a group day interview...
2) GROUP DAY interview, we played games , answer sales questions , and presented a 3 min presentation and a final interview based on i guess the prefered candidates. For instance they pretended that they didn't have enough time to interview everyone and took only 10 and 5 went back home. I went through the interview process and they asked me questions on why i should stay, what did i think of technology going and my goals.
3) someone from israel was supposed to call us to tell us if we were taken or not.

Interview Question – all their questions are simple and they actually try to get simple minded people in their company, not too smart or too good. Just average.   Answer Question
