Computer Forensic Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at New York County District Attorney in June 2013.

Interview Details – Very technical in nature. Sat with department director, lab manager, bureau chief and supervisor to discuss knowledge and experiences. Questions were directed at hypothetical situations that did not necessarily reflect the work that was being done in this lab. Overall the interview was fairly simple and help was given to direct the answers more clearly.

Interview Question – If you walk into this room what would be your plan to figure out if a computer system has been hacked?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Really only salary wise we discussed annual salary but was paid an hourly wage equating to an annual salary.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at New York County District Attorney in March 2010.

Interview Details – The interview was fairly simple. Questions were not hard. Just be confident, have an interest in public service, and what the DA's office does. I'd say confidence/nervousness was my killer.

Very Difficult Interview

Assistant District Attorney Interview

Assistant District Attorney

The process took 3 months - interviewed at New York County District Attorney in November 2009.

Interview Details – On campus interview. It was the end of the day and interviewer definitely did not want to be there. Lots of hypos, she was basically asking how I would handle certain situations from her own cases.
