    Contract Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The recruiter reached out to me for a phone screen by calling at 7:30 AM to set up a time. However, she quickly got into salary and other details that I don't believe are appropriate for a first screen. After she found out I don't have the experience she was looking for, which was very clear from my resume so I don't know why she wasted my time, she offered to let me know of a more entry-level position should it become available.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies (Redwood City, CA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Started out getting a cold call from the recruiter, scheduled a next day phone interview. Phone interview went well, flew out for a day of on-site interviews shortly after. On-site interviews were a mix of applied problems, one on one design talks, and fairly technical field-specific questions.

    The interviews were interesting and fun, the people were friendly and smart, and the whole process was much more enjoyable than any other interview processes I've had.

    I only say how many digit you got right and how many position of digits are right.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies (San Carlos, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had to take a Programming Test (around 4 hours) in a language of my choice. There were four assignments (implementation, debugging, changes to code etc). The test code base that i had to work with was reasonably complicated. It took some time to figure out what it was doing & what i was supposed to do. You are graded on completeness / correctness (whether you can get it to compile) / solution efficiency / approach / code readability etc. They checked on me a cpl times during the test to ask if i had questions & i was free to take breaks if/when needed. Internet access was provided.

    I did not do well, even though i consider myself a decent programmer & i eventually got a hang of the overall logic in their test code.

    In hindsight, i think a better approach would have been to split the overall test into multiple segments of an hour each: 1 programming assignment, a debugging session with a technical member of their team present ('pair' programming ...), a white boarding session to write algorithms/programs etc. etc. That is, multiple approaches to evaluate instead of giving the candidate several hours to work on assignments on a laptop by himself/herself ...

    Other candidates may disagree ... or maybe i'm complaining too much & am technically 'challenged' :)

    Regardless, the overall experience was good / interesting. The person i dealt with was very courteous.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies.

    Interview

    I found the initial phone screen and interview process to be straight forward and professionally managed. I have experienced the gamut over my career, from companies that on multiple occasions neglected to inform me about scheduled phone interviews to organized interviews with an agenda. Check Point fell at the high end. Interviews started on time. I understood the process. Interviewers were polite and fair. On the less positive side, Check Point has some interesting hiring requirements. They required that I submit my W2 for the past two years, which I found odd and mildly offensive. I decided to go ahead and do it largely because the information is probably available elsewhere. Also, the recruiter would not discuss benefits with me until I was formally offered the job.
