    Trade Show and Event Specialist Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ESET (San Diego, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    So disappointed in this company and the process. I was thrilled when I was offered an in-person interview over a month ago based on how highly people spoke of this company, on Glassdoor. It was over two hours and I met with four different people. At the end of the interview I was told, with conviction, no matter what, you will hear from us ( within two weeks). GREAT! If I am not the right fit, that is fine, just let me know. It has been over a month I sent hand written notes and followed up with an email. NOTHING! Have the decency for those going through the job process to be up front and let them know. Communicating for two weeks before my interview, having the interview, then NOTHING. I have told a few people and the common response " do you really want to work for a company who is treating people like that"? No, no I don't. I thought so much for of ESET when I went in for the interview. I am so unbelievable disappointed in how this all turned out. Happy hunting, maybe think twice about a company that treats people like this. I feel like I wasted so much time and that is so upsetting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ESET (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Interview process seemed a bit more entailed than others with 4-5 people to actually interview with. Process took about a month with a couple of interview hoops and re-arranged interview times and people. Questions seemed normal. However, very difficult to contact anyone about the process and procedures of the hiring process. After a 4th email a response was finally returned stating they decided to look internally. Seems as though the "hoops" of the interview process were unnecessary if they were just for protocol to then hire internally. Kind of disappointed with feedback and communication of a company that seemed to have a great culture at the time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at ESET in July 2014.

    Interview

    When through a phone interview first which consisted of a few personal and technical questions, nothing that wasn't expected. Second interview information was emailed in an easy to understand way with times, directions, and the names of the people I would be interviewing with. Upon arrival for the interview, it was a little confusing as to where to go once I got to the floor I was supposed to be at. All the doors are restricted access and the only way into the receptionist area was by pressing an intercom button that was not an obvious thing to do until I got close to it to read the small label under the button, maybe a note on this in the email would've been nice. The people were very nice and the interview went on seamlessly.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no extremely difficult questions. As the position was an internship spot, the technical questions were very basic and general knowledge.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ESET (San Diego, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I met with two gentlemen in an office with a view of the harbor, downtown San Diego. They were very friendly and had several questions about my past experience and the pay that Im accustomed to. They seemed a little put off by my answer because they said, well here you can definitely make that, but to start out you would not make that. A lady came in next and talked to me. She wasnt very friendly and it seemed as though she was trying to intimidate me. I kept smiling and keeping a very fun, yet professional demeanor. When she was done, she said we will touch base with you in a few days.

    Interview Questions

    • I honestly only remember the income questions. Perhaps it was because they knew I was qualified but wanted to find out if I would even be interested in a lower pay grade, which I was because I wanted to get my foot in the door for a growing tech company.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at ESET (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email within a week seeing if I was still interested. From there a phone interview was set up for that week and a panel interview was set up for the following week. I met one on one with the hiring manager, VP of my department, VP of HR and a member of the team for 30 minutes each. Everyone was very respectful and the questions were based more on my past experiences and how I would handle situations than seeing my technical skills. I received an offer the following week.

    Interview Questions

    • The most challenging question I had was giving a one minute pitch on why I should be the one hired over anyone else.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They told me what the salary range would be from the first email so I knew exactly what I should expect.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ESET (San Diego, CA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    This was by far the best interviewing experience I have ever had. They were very friends direct with questions. I had three different round of interviews each had a copy of my resume already even though I had brought extra. The only part I felt was annoying was having to fill out the application on site before the interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a judgment call question. Where I had to make a call between a down user and the CEO being down. Unfortunately the company I worked for at the time always made us bend over for the CEOs this one didn't see it that way. I made the wrong call.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    My job at the time better the offer. To this day I still wish I could get another offer there.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ESET (San Diego, CA) in January 2009.

    Interview

    Initial communications were clear and better than expected. Interview schedule was set up and emailed to me so I was very aware of the time and who the interviewers were. Everyone was professional and aware of the questions that should not be asked diring an interview. There were no snafus. The office is exemplary. It is located in a high-rise building in downtown San Diego and has a perfect view of the bay. Work culture is professional and most employees are highly-intelligent. From the CEO to the receptionist, all dialog was intellectually engaging and energetic. This is a great place to work.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ESET.

    Interview

    Before I had the interview, the recruiter kept forcing me to lower down my expected salary. the expected salary was within the range they put in the job ad! Fine, she decided to put it as negotiable , and I did not hear from this recruiter for weeks until I saw the same job ad for the same role posted by the same recruiter. And so, I showed the recruiter her own ad, what happened to my resume ? within the same day, she got back to me and told me I got an interview. I was suspecting that she did not follow up at all. The interview was pretty normal and they said I had to wait if the other management person wished to conduct a second round of interview. Again, there was silent until I emailed the recruiter and told her I had other job offer pending for my reply and so how about Eset, she sent me an unsuccessful application email in the next few minutes. Very "professional" of the recruiter. Good luck Eset in hiring candidates who sit around in event doing nothing much just because your name is pretty establish in the market or at least that's what you think. Glad I did not join even though there were attractive perks and bonuses, guess it would be a downward learning curve.
