    Technical Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Core Security (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly thorough. Went through four interviews before being taken out of the running. Company is relocating and pretty much starting anew in several areas. Two interviews with the retained search firm and two interviews with actual employees. There is a skills assessment test that you take online. It isn't as daunting as the practice materials make it seem to be.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time when you had to work with a very difficult person. Not a client, but a coworker. What happened and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Core Security (Atlanta, GA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Several phone discussions then an on-site interview. While on-site, I was asked to deliver a presentation. Went through a multi-week interview process (appropriate for this position) including travel to Atlanta only to get an offer that was $50,000 below what I clearly told HR was my expected salary. Of course I declined. What a waste of time.
