    Security Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Lots of technical questions. Overall, the hiring manager was looking for a candidate who enjoyed the security side of IT and Networks. Did not meet any of the qualifications, for example, 3 years exp. and bachelors. I had 0 experience and am seeking my degree. I was offered the job however and accepted it. My Network + certification definitely helped, and feel as though I would not have gotten the job had I not obtained it several weeks prior.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult questions were some of the security related technical questions. A security + certification will certainly help you.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Spoke with a current top rep, a current manager, and the current VP of the division. Everyone was friendly and the conversation was very open and frank. I spoke with each person for probably 30 to 40 minutes each. There was never any "hardball" type of questions. They just wanted to know that you know how to do phone sales and that you will put in the time learning their product offerings and put in the time pounding the phone to hit your numbers.

    Negotiation Details
    They offered one base salary, I countered with a higher one, they said they could only do what they offered.

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Trustwave in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Well technically I never got a chance to interview. The Recruitment Program Manager contacted me to setup a phone screen. I confirmed and when the time came, I sat around for a good 30 minutes without a phone call.

    I followed up and he said it was not a good time any more (did not let me know this until after standing me up). He offered to reschedule and offered a date. I specified a time and he confirmed. This took place over four emails...two is more than sufficient. And he emails me five minutes before the interview to say he cannot make it. So we reschedule again, highly inefficiently. This time I confirm the time and he confirms he will call me.

    After 20 minutes I followed up with him via email because guess what? No call or response.

    MAJOR organization problem with this man. Emails are not efficient. He only canceled one interview and the other two he simply did not bother to call or email me to say let's reschedule. I have NEVER had an interview process go so poorly.

    HR: You represent the company to potential employees. This is NOT the way to sell your company.

    Interview Questions
    • Trying to set up a time with this man, while not a question, has been an extremely frustrating process. Rude. Rude. Rude.   Answer Question
