    The whole process is good. The Hr was good and they were very prompt in replying. There was some lack of communication for setting up the technical interview. Yet to receive the result of it.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Cigital in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter from this company sent me an email to set up a phone screen and never call me on that time. She asked me to reschedule it and stood me up again! Finally called me via phone for third time after I send her a confirmation email. It was a very unprofessional experience overall.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the position from their careers portal. After a week, I got a mail asking to take a written test which involved secure code review, Most of them were easy and few were tricky.

    Once the written test was evaluated, I was asked to schedule a phone interview with HR team. Then I had two more technical phone interviews which lasted roughly 45 mins.

    The onsite interview had three rounds. The first two rounds were purely technical and the last was with a manager.

    Security Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cigital in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had email contact from their recruiter via LinkedIn. Talked with the recruiter and then went through four phone tech screenings. These were less technical than I had expected but covered my experience in the software security field and information security field pretty well. Feedback generally came within a few days and then the next call would be scheduled until the four were done. After passing those I was flown into the corporate HQ where I talked with three more employees. One more about how they managed their employee assignments and career management and where I'd like to go and two more technical interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • No specific difficult questions but they did ask about areas I had little or no experience in or had not touched for some time. They weren't looking for knowledgeable answers as much as assessing the thought processes.   Answer Question

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    Long on-site interview. Several calls and phone-screens with recruiters and technical folk.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. If you read OWASP and learn extremely basic crypto (what is a hash, difference between symmetric/asymmetric keys, hmac/digital signature) you will have no problem.

      One unexpected question had to deal with session management and how it is implemented in Java. I had never written a Java backend but figured it would use some kind of hashmap...

    Interview Details

    On applying, if they like the Resume, you'll be asked to schedule two technical telephonic interviews. If you pass both of them, you'll be called for an onsite interview at the Headquarters. Onsite interview consists of 2 small technical face to face interviews and one HR. Once all this is over, you receive a call if they are satisfied with your performance.

    Interview Questions
    • They may ask you to implement the security related concept to a real world scenario. For example, how do you store credit card information in database? What type of crypto should we use. Things to take care and prevent a breach etc.   Answer Question
