    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies.

    Interview

    It started off with a recruiter phone screen. The next steps were to have in-person interviews with peers and the head of marketing. It was a one hour interview with each of those individuals in their office. Then, after having cleared that round, I was given an assignment to create a presentation for a CIO levels about Check Point. I was given about a week to complete the assignment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies.

    Interview

    Interviews were badly organized. The interviewer confirmed the dates and times multiple times via email but she showed up late on 3 different occasions and not once apologized. common courtesy is to send a quick note telling someone you are running late but this gal made multiple excuses and had no regard for my time nor my schedule. To make things worse after we finally did talk this interviewer told me on 2 different emails they would call me for 2nd interviews then never called. Then she called me back for another job that i wasn't qualified for! She never read my resume, didn't ask professional questions. stay away from this company if you want to be working with professionals.

    Associate Security Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Couple phone interviews first then was flown to Dallas for a 'group' session/interview. Some of it was odd like going to the bar and drinking upon arrival with number of managers and expected to shmooze and what not. Following day we had 3 different tests and 2 presentations/interviews with different managers, bit stressful and highly competitive but worth it

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies.

    Interview

    Not a bad sales process, spoke to team I would likely be on and everything seemed very positive until apparently the last person who did not understand English very well. Was rejected for who knows what reason, no response from the two senior personnel that interviewed me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies (San Carlos, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out saying I was a potential fit for a channel/partner development role. Had an initial phone screen with the recruiter (robotic personality and questions asked) and two weeks go by without next steps. Finally, I get a call from a hiring manager, but for a direct sales group. We discussed a role I had no interest in and that was it. I reached back to the recruiter about the confusion and she said the interview process ended. Waste of time waiting around and did not even get a chance to talk with someone about the actual position I wanted to pursue.

    Interview

    The questions were pretty straight forward on how you would deal with customers in certain situations. There were also some assessments that you have to take to test your technical skills. The biggest problem with the whole interview/hiring process was they never got back to me. Emailed and followed up on status but just never heard back. Would be nice to know what the results were.

    Security Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies (Arlington, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Lengthy interview process useful to vet out the right candidates and make sure are good fit for both themselves and the company. A combination of security engineering and sales focused interviews, again to vet out the best fit candidates for the role. Typical difficulty in the technical aspect, required a working knowledge of security and firewall fundamentals and must be able to install/configure and provide a basic overview demonstration of the core product. Good communication skills very helpful.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe policy creation, installation, management, log research and troubleshooting.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    We agreed on a fair compensation package during the interview process before final approval.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies in February 2016.

    Interview

    Initial interview conducted via telephone - innocuous questions that had no content or substance to the position. What exactly is the HR role in all of this? I think I understand the many negative reviews here.
