    Operations Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at SafeNet.

    Interview

    This was the strangest and most confusing interview I've ever had. After submitting my resume online through my university's career website, I was contacted by HR. The recruiter then told me I would be directly interviewed by the team manager whose team I may potentially join.
    When the team manager called me I was prepared for an onslaught of technical questions, but to my surprise he only asked me two questions. "What do you know about SafeNet?" and "Why do you want this internship?" At the end of the phone call the manager explained that he called only to talk to me and tell me more about the responsibilities of this internship position and that someone else from HR would contact me soon for a real interview.
    I was really confused why HR told me I was going to be interviewed when the team manager didn't even know he was supposed to be interviewing me. I felt like there was a huge communication gap between the two departments. I never got a call or email back from HR.

    Technical Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Belcamp, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at SafeNet (Belcamp, MD).

    Interview

    Applied online, returned call, attended interview, 3 persons: HR, Direct Report, Global IT Manager.
    Don't ask HR many questions about the company or the products, they do not know and did not care. Focus on IT support resolution ability/answers with the Direct Report/Supervisor - he's making the decision. Calling the day before to confirm the interview time was received oddly coldly - like you were stupid for doing so. HR was not prepared for the interview, there was no designated place to do it. Direct Report was asking the IT support questions and making the decision, focus on that. He didn't care about the firm or the products, just your ability to solve problems: VPN, connectivity, Outlook mail, Active Directory, etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at SafeNet (Irvine, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews, in person and on the phone. Process last about 3 to 4 months. The CIO said he was were very interested in going to the next round and was 100% sure they would call me in for the final 5th round of interviews. Several weeks later after hearing nothing I reached out to the recruiter and she apologized and said to send me a filled out application with 3 references and that they were going to get that process started and call the references and do the back ground checks etc..2 weeks later, nothing, no background check or no refrence calling. I called again and an hour later they called me and said they had decided to go a different direction and that I was no longer a candidate!! Horrible exerience and they led me to believe I was a strong candidate all the way to the end. I lined up my reference for them to call at the end of the process and they said they would and they never did and cut me off. Wow, very disrepectful management. Be careful with this company and watch out for being led along.

    Sales Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at SafeNet.

    Interview

    Got approached by internal HR person via LinkedIn. Had a phone interview with that person, following that was a phone interview with the Sr. SE Director, who is based abroad. Asked me about general sales/technical experience, and my knowledge of security.

    I was told that I would proceed to the next round by the HR person a few days after the interview, and that a date would follow shortly. After not hearing back for a while and a few follow-ups from my side I heard that the next person didn't think I'd be a good fit, just based on my profile. So basically the previous interview(s) were a waste of time for everyone.
