    Network Security Center Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SecureWorks.

    Interview Details

    Process was pretty straight forward. The first step was a phone interview, then on-site interview. I was asked a mix of Technical Questions and Performance based Questions. You better know your stuff (networking + Linux). You will be asked a lot of Networking questions regarding troubleshooting and Highly detailed explanations on how things work. You will be asked several specific Linux commands, related to troubleshooting, scripting, system stats, and specific file locations in the directory.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at SecureWorks.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a current intern. Interviewed within a couple of days. The interview consisted of 15-30 minutes of behavioral questions, followed by 30-45 minutes technical questions. I think a referral goes a long way for this one. I received the acceptance letter a few days later.

    The behavioral interview was more like a conversation between myself and the recruiter. I guess he wanted to make sure I wasn't a socially inept robot and could articulate my thoughts.
    The technical question was in front of the recruiter, one of the team manager, and one of the team leaders. The interview was given by the team leader that I would later work at.

    Interview Questions
    • There were nothing extremely difficult. They asked basic Java concepts (because I told them that was my most experience language). There were a few basic algorithm problems as well, such as sorts, and a database question that involved being given a scenario and was asked to design a database schema accordingly.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at SecureWorks in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the SecureWorks career website and got in touch with the talent coordinator for the position. I was told the manager was very interested in talking with me. The date/time was scheduled for a Monday. 1 Minute before the interview time I got a call saying the manager has to reschedule due to an emergency. So the interview was rescheduled for a Friday. When I get to the interview on Friday it appears the manager is out of town and I'm interviewing with 2 team members. The interview went well. The guys were nice and I thought I had done pretty good. I e-mailed a thank you note to both interviewers and the talent coordinator. I NEVER heard back. Not one word about anything.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult or unexpected questions. Just asked questions about my past experience. They seemed very interested in the work I had bee doing.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at SecureWorks.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with HR was pretty easy. Hiring Managers liked my resume. The phone interview with the hiring managers went well however I was not selected for the next round of interviews. They sent me a generic email informing me that I was not selected for the next round, and they did not provide me with any feedback.
