    Professional Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at HireRight.

    Interview Details

    The initial interview process was less than ideal. The recruiter missed our first call, and it took me 2 tries before I could connect with him again.

    After a generic review of some basic skills, the recruiter eventually set up follow up calls with the actual hiring managers.

    Based on my experience, each hiring manager is given full freedom of what they want to ask their applicants. For me, it was pretty straight forward. In 2 separate interviews, I was asked standard questions like: "Describe what you did in your last position", or "What are your strengths and weaknesses". I did get a thoughtful question involving a scenario; so that allowed for some better conversations and insight than the go-to questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at HireRight in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by an employee. I had a very good positive interview with the recruiter who thought I would be a good fit since I worked for a competitor. I was then interviewed by the Director who did not seem very interested in interviewing me at all. I was called by the recruiter 2 days later who apologized and told me they would not that they were already far into the process with other candidates and "thank you very much".

    Interview Questions
    • Good typical background/experience questions from recruiter. The interview with the Director was not difficult. They did not ask a lot of questions other than wanting to know about my experience.   Answer Question

    Sales Executive - Emerging Enterprise Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tulsa, OK
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tulsa, OK
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at HireRight.

    Interview Details

    After the initial HR interview, you are then screened by the hiring manager, over the phone, to see if he wants to continue. Then you are brought in to the office and given teleconference interviews, from their CA office, by 3 different managers. You meet with each manager individually so this is a 3 hour interview process. If you ask about compensation, they will dance around the answer and only mention how great the commission structure is.

    Interview Questions
    • The hiring manager of the Emerging Enterprise department asks the same question repeatedly and expects a different answer each time. The supervisor of the Emerging Enterprise department does sales roleplaying during the interview. Be prepared to give rebuttals about a product you do not know much about.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    After having the same interview with basically 4 different managers, I realized I do not want to work for them. What a waste of time!

    Interview Details

    Nice people and friendly environment but got conflicting expectations on all interviews. I had four interviews and don't think the managers are communicating with one another about the role, expectations or requirements. One hand doesn't know what the other is doing.

    Information Security Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at HireRight in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Recruited through LinkedIn. Phone interview first with the recruiter there, with director of information security. The interview was combative and hostile. Lots of questions and arguing, which took me aback as I'm a pretty laid back guy. There was not a lot of confidence on my side I was qualified for the position after talking to him, despite the fact I had all the requirements listed on the job description.
