    Technical Project Coordinator Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online. Within a week, an HR representative called me to do a pre-screening; asking about my previous position, and inquired about my skills. That was about a 30 minute conversation. I was told my resume would be forwarded to the hiring manager, and if he/she would be interested, I would receive a call within a week. The hiring manager called me the same day, and it ended up being a short phone interview. I was then asked to come in for an in-person interview the following week.

    Commercial Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Three steps to get to 1-1 with hiring manager. Phone screen, quick call with the recruiter which was nothing more than to say she will pass me to next level after qualifying some questions. Phone screen to recruiter took one month, recruiter to 1-1 3 took 3 days.

    One on one was at restaurant, he paid. Maybe this was the end of end. I was in suite and tie, he was in civilian clothes think jeans ( I only saw his face) but maybe slacks. He asked question right off bat about why me, what do I bring to table and that was it… rest was me asking about role and a lot of questions about him. He tells me he is planning on sending three through to the next round, and I'm in the three. Then two days later I get email saying thanks but no thanks. Not an honest person, so even though I was really interested in position, I think in the end it worked out better. When I called him out after the email from corporate, he said he lost the head count. Really? The territory is vacant why would not filling the area be a priority. Just tell the truth, don/t have to lie. Also was drinking and chewing during interview. Thought unprofessional but what ever, it was his show.

    Onward and upward as the saying goes, but just a heads up if you are applying for this role in SFO area.

    Interview Questions
    • none mostly personal . I did most of the questioning. Guess he did not like me from beginning but could not be upfront. Surprising coming from a sales executive.   Answer Question

    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+ weeks - interviewed 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 through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies.

    Interview Details

    Very pleasant HR conversation and helpful in setting up a face to face with the hiring manager in Atlanta. F to F wen't very well, due to back group was uniquely qualified for the position. The the bottom fell out when the salary offer came. I was making almost triple of what was offered. Had to decline. 12 months later the same job was posted again. HR contacted me and I was informed that the salary range had been increased so I agreed to go through the procedure again, same hiring manager, same requirements, etc. Never heard from CP again. However, the same job has been posted on and off over the past 24 months. Very confusing, unprofessional and question either the skill or motives driving this behavior.

    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!

    I got what I asked. I was told that I would be doing one position but given inaccurate information on what the job duties and advancement. This left me disillusioned when I discovered that I would not be doing what they told me I could be doing.
