    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Alert Logic (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Communication was not the best. I had to call several times to follow up after they told me they would call. I was met with excuses several times, but when I did get to speak with someone they were professional and helpful. I understand that the company is growing and they may be understaffed a bit right now, but they nearly lost me because of the lapses in communication. The interview questions were applicable, however I did get several trick questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alert Logic (Houston, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The initial questions and interview setup was smooth. The only hiccup was being asked to email my personal information (including social security number). Be sure to take the fax option. There is a check-in computer in the lobby did not contain the names of 2 of the four people I interviewed with. Not good from a security/quality standpoint. Tour of the office and staff was great. Quiet and well organized. Looked like they were assembling a cyber army. The interview should have taken place over Skype. The interview is scheduled for a full 4 hours--be prepared for that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Alert Logic (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I got an email setting up a time for a phone screen within 30 minutes of my applying online. Phone screen let to a bit of a delay in getting back to me about an interview, and then a bit of a delay in letting me know if I got the job. Overall communication throughout the process was consistent, apologetic about length of time, and positive.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Alert Logic (Houston, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter, phone interview with hiring manager (who was awesome), face to face interview with various team members. One of the folks on the list had resigned so they brought in 2 others to fill gap. Most of the employees I spoke to had been there less than a year. Seems like a very dynamic work environment with a revolving door of employees coming and going. They say it's due to growth but I'm thinking there's other drivers causing people to cycle out so fast.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Alert Logic (Houston, TX) in December 2013.

    Interview

    My interview process may have been unique. I didn't come into the office for my two interviews. I went to lunch with the hiring manager and his boss. It was by the far the best and most relaxing interview process I've ever experienced. YMMV

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Alert Logic (Houston, TX) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Technical phone interview. Asked about C/C++ static declarations, cost of using a class, what is best thing to throw to exception handler (value, pointer, reference), what is difference between a reference and a pointer. I thought his questions were not phrased in a very straightforward way; you have to talk to him a bit to find out what he wants. Followed up with programming test: write a program to convert a simple text matching syntax into a regular expression and then use that RE to qualify input lines of text, printing out the ones that match. Problem is easy if you know REs, you have several days at home to do it. My program worked but no feedback from them after 4-5 days waiting. If they were interested further they would have me come in for a full day of interviews.
    Edit: finally called back, scheduled in-house interviews for 5 hours, one-on-one with team members. Interviews scheduled through lunch time with no break for me. Some interviews were friendly technical discussions, others were grilling sessions on similar topics: C++ classes, pointers, etc. Interview with Engineering VP as well, asked to elaborate on technical problems encountered in previous work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Alert Logic (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I received a call from HR to set up an initial phone interview which went well. Proceeded to a call with department manager and another employee. HR called with positive feedback and we set up a face to face interview. I had a panel interview with 3 people. Everyone was friendly and very personable. They explained in detail what the job role was and what to expect. I was told that i would definitely be hearing from them. I never received an email or phone call from anyone at any point afterwards. The whole situation was very confusing. It would be nice to receive an email stating they decided to “pursue other candidates”

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Alert Logic.

    Interview

    Pretty much like most others, apply online, phone interview, technical interview, onsite interview, then the job. All in all, a typical interview. Just be yourself and you'll do fine.

    They have a flat salary. They will promise unlimited commissions and earning potential, but like all things, this isn't always the case.
