Application Details

I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Check Point Software Technologies in March 2011.

Interview Details

I contacted them via a posting on craigslist as they were desperate to fill empty spots. They usually have a 2 day interview process for this position, but due to the urgency of this position needing to be filled, I did a one on one interview with the manager and a technician.

    Entry Level Technical Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Check Point Software Technologies in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Total time between scheduling the interview and being hired was about 45 days. During the interview they split you into teams and have you work on team exercises and a technical test, and then they make some cuts after lunch.

    After you come back for lunch, you have individual interviews for technical skills (basic security, networking, and they provide a study guide ahead of time) and for customer service skills. After those there is a hands-on with the product with no direction other than what the final results of each step should be. This is to see how well you do with a new product that you don't know anything about. Problem solving on your feet.

    If you make it through the day without being cut, you're not guaranteed the position, but you have a really good chance.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Check Point Software Technologies.

    Interview Details

    The first part of the hiring process includes computer based quiz in which technical and networking skills are tested.
    Second part is a hands-on test where you are required to set up an Edge (small SOHO firewall), and you are being asked some questions - mostly to further check how good are you technical and learning skills.
    Third phase is a 1:1 interview with a team leader, or a group manager. You will be asked technical and general questions - and part of the interview will be held in English.
    Sometimes there is a fourth phase - which is usually a stress test - testing how you cope with pressure and time constraints. They use the T test. You need to instruct the tester how to put a puzzle together using only voice (like in a phone conversation) and you have 15 minutes to do it.
