    Average Interview


    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Industrial Defender.


    Interview process consisted of 2 phone interviews and then an in-house interview. The first interview consisted of general questions about my experience and being given background on the company and position. The second phone interview was a technical interview covering linux and windows administration, network administration, and firewall administration. The last interview took place at the company's offices and consisted of repeats of the first two phone interviews (many of the exact same questions were asked) and a meeting with a VP and someone HR. The meeting with the VP was mainly a discussion about the company, its past, and direction. The HR representative ask many questions about my current compensation and benefits which I found slightly strange and off putting. They refused to give a salary range for the position and pushed until I provided them with my "required compensation".

    Interview Questions

    • Technical question on networking where centered on CISCO IOS commands. Such as showing/saving the config and determining a port's state. Also including more general questions about arp, dns, tcp/udp   Answer Question
    • Linux/Windows questions involved setting dns, ip, and displaying processes and routes.   Answer Question
    • For firewall experience they were not actually looking for true firewall knowledge but experience with the lastest UTMs from the big vendors (CISCO, Juniper, palo alto).   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Offered salary was not adequate for required skill set and amount of travel
