    Security Management Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Culpeper, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication SCRL (Culpeper, VA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Numerous interviews (4). Starts with phone interview from HR, proceeds to management interview, then back to HR to ensure salary negotiation will work, then back to management for final interview. It took 5 weeks, which I thought was excessive. Lots of waiting in between interviews, but HR is communicative and keeps you in the loop pretty well.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to leave your current job for this one? What value will you bring to the company? What is more important to you, benefits or work fit? How do you feel about a risk averse culture?   Answer Question

    Standard hiring process for a western company these days. 1. Online application 2. Phone interview 3. Online English, Arithmatic, Critical Thinking assessment. 4. Face-to-Face interview However, the online system is appalling (another company using Taleo) and may lose your application. The process is extremely long and took over 6 months btween submiting application and receiving an offer.

    • The hiring manager asked 2 really on-the-spot questions. 1. Circle all the words you don't know in Japanese from this newspaper article. 2. What is the most important decision in your life?   Answer Question

    Negotiation was fairly fast. About 3 weeks but that included negotiation for relocation and related expenses.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication SCRL (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)).

    Interview

    Was informed through a phone call that an interview was in place on a chosen date. Went for the interview with a developer and his manager. Interview was casual and they shared a lot of information about their company. Interview results communicated through phone one week later. No tests or HR interview. The employee are very proud of the quality they deliver and they appreciate loyalty. They were interested in hiring someone who is willing to learn and not someone who claims to be very good at something as it may cause him/her to not want to learn anymore.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing uncommon.. But they really want to know why you want to leave your current company since they want loyal employees.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    HR rep offered more than expected so no negotiations.
