Information Security Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Colorado Springs Utilities in July 2011.
Interview Details – I met with the manager and a couple of people from his team. The manager and the team were really nice. They asked basic questions, "Tell us about yourself" type questions. Then they had a sheet of technical questions, which they took turns asking. I think they had some kind of a rubric they had to fill out as they went. The questions were pretty standard computer security questions. I tried to prepare for the interview, but wasn't sure what to study, so I didn't do very well, but I think if I had spent a few hours doing Security+ and CISSP sample exams, I would have done a lot better. I'm rating it as difficult, but that's just because I have a hard time with technical interviews. Overall, I thought it was a positive exeperience. The people were nice, the questions they asked were reasonable considering the position, and they never made me feel uncomfortable.
Interview Question – I can't remember any specific questions, but there were some about firewall rules, subnetting, how you would troubleshoot a connectivity issue, etc... Answer Question
