ESET Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
ERP Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at ESET.
Interview Details – 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 Question – 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 Details – They told me what the salary range would be from the first email so I knew exactly what I should expect.
Desktop Support Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ESET in November 2010.
Interview Details – 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 Question – 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
Reason for Declining – My job at the time better the offer. To this day I still wish I could get another offer there.

Information Technology Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at ESET in January 2009.
Interview Details – 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.
