    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.

    Average Interview

    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 applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies (Redwood City, CA) in January 2008.

    Interview

    interview with 4-5 bright people that were really good on the technical side. Some with no technical question.
    My favorite question of all time is: I have a 10 digit number and you guess what is it.
    I only say how many digit you got right and how many position of digits are right.

    go.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies (Denver, CO) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Never got past HR person. Quoted salary range found on Glassdoor. See same jobs advertised every other month. They are just keeping their HR people busy but not really hiring??? The HR people do not give insight into what they are looking for nor is the job description helpful. My advice to companies is to
    advertise what you want and a pay range you may find what you want. If you are sitting their listening for "Buzz Words" to move the canidate forward in the process I can see why all the reviews sound like the HR people hate their job!!! If you need practice interviewing the low level HR reps then apply for a job here. If you are not then do not bother applying here.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies (San Francisco, CA) in June 2018.

    Interview

    In a word, odd. The "phone interview" consisted of talking for 5-6 minutes with a recruiter within Checkpoint, who asked what my prior job titles were (even though they are described on my resume). She then asked about the salary target, which I answered, and she said I was well within the range they were looking for. That was it. Seriously.

    I was told I was moving on to the hiring manager for a second interview, and that I should hear word from him later in the week. Also was told to ask her for updates if I didn't hear. Never heard from him, reached out as requested, and never heard back from her either. However, I did get a strange call on my cell phone days later and when I answered, heard some fumbling and the person then hung up. I did a Google search on the number and the recruiter's name came up as the owner of the cell phone that called me. She apparently had called me from her cell by mistake, and then hung up on me.

    Beginning to end, a strange waste of time, and it's a shame as I have worked at a couple of CheckPoint partners in the past and know many contacts within the organization. Incredibly, there was a prior party on Glassdoor to posted about a very similar experience with their interview, so this doesn't seem to be an unusual experience.
