    Interview

    Pretty low key. Met with general counsel and one other attorney. Both were very friendly and easy going and provided a lot of insight into the company and the role.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Trend Micro in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was straight forward. First technical skills phone screening, then on site interview with two people. Parking can be tricky, so arriving nice and early is best. Be yourself and be personable.

    I have them a number and, although they couldn't match it, they didn't counter too low.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Trend Micro.

    Interview

    Two phone screens, Two in person interviews. Didn't like the fact they insisted on meeting me twice in person, causing me to spend several hours commuting in traffic, only to be told I wasn't an aggressive enough personality for the position. Beware of this when accepting in person interviews with them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Trend Micro in December 2014.

    Interview

    Dreadful. U have to ready good amount of presentation for the interview. And asking u all their hot sale or new products . After u have the interview with HR then the management level. It takes weeks to settle down the hiring process. Even they will give u the verbally hiring conversation but still take a week or so to have finalized confirmation and contract.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Trend Micro.

    Interview

    Interviewed Q1-2014. Initial interview was a phone screen by the hiring manager and the follow up was an in-person interview at their offices. Position was for a remote location/work from home. After the in-person interview I meet with the local sales representative who I would be working with. None of the questions were particularly difficult or challenging. I just answered them as I always would. They seemed a little pressed for time during the in-person.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult situation was the requirement to deliver a 15 minute presentation to the hiring team. They wanted it to be on their product line, so it required some significant research into their products, marketing, positioning and goals.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Trend Micro (Cupertino, CA).

    Interview

    Interview in Cupertino, CA. Interviewed by Senior Architects and Software Engineers. Most of the interview is on relevant implementation and product questions - e.g. high performance proxies, cloud security paradigms etc. Some questions also cover standard computer science questions e.g. sort/search etc. Very pleasant group team. There is no in your face attitude here. People are very respectful and have a very positive attitude.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain the 10K limit in threading for Linux performance. Also explain event driven architectures such as epoll etc. Be prepared to whiteboard code snippets and explain your reasoning.   1 Answer
