    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CyberArk (Augusta, GA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    From the first contact, the talent manager was very professional and personable. We had a brief, 30-minute conversation to assess potential placement within the company. After the interview process was completed, I spoke with four different people. All of the interviewers were professional and punctual. I was contacted exactly when I was told that I would be contacted. The questions were fairly easy for me, as I have worked in the IT field for over 20 years. The interviewers were very friendly and seemed passionate about what they do. I am excited about having an opportunity to work for CyberArk. This company seems to actually want to help me succeed since my success equals their success. I like that approach.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CyberArk.

    Interview

    Unfortunately, I had to talk to a disorganized talent manager that couldn't keep a date and time locked down to talk. I asked him after the in person interview to give me feedback. Not only did he not follow up, but he also did not have the courtesy to respond to my email on whether I got the job.

    IT Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at CyberArk in October 2013.

    Interview

    Typical of most companies, this company likes to start out by having you waste time with HR while she drones on about the company and its products (most information you can read about on their web site). She called 15 minutes or so late and I was pressed for time, so I cut her off and asked what exactly is expected of this position. She was miffed and asked if I would like to continue to hear about the company's mission. I stated that due to the late start and an upcoming meeting I had to attend, I had to cut to the chase... As I expected, the position is referred to as "manager" but is really a lead systems engineer position (mostly hands on). Not sure what its like to work at this company, but in my opinion, any company that starts you off with HR is already down for the count. All the best jobs I've had in my career were companies where the first person I met or talked to was the hiring manager. What does HR know about how to screen an IT position anyway? Can she ask if you've ever restored an Exchange database or moved operations master servers in active directory? Why do companies let candidates anywhere near HR in the very beginning?

    Interview Questions

    • None. I cut her off when I realized the job was improperly titled. I advised her to change the title of the job and she would get candidates who fit the role a bit better.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CyberArk (Atlanta, GA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Step 1. Recruiter calls you, may or may not ask general IT knowledge specific questions;

    Step 2. onsite or team viewer screen sharing, etc.. ;
    2-A. task of installing the Cyber-Ark product (password management suite a.k.a PIM suite or file exchange suite a.k.a. SIM/IBV suite ) It is a multi component product and most components have to be installed on windows. Few components install on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. ;
    2-B. task of using the installed product from above, for managing a password on a target device(maybe a domain account, so you need active directory also installed and working on a different server and also another account on a linux server, so ssh must be installed and service started);
    2-C. troubleshooting the installed product if problems occur, always try to analyze the logs or go through them for each components' problem/symptom

    DURING and AFTER (2) Are you friendly? polite? patient? listening ? social? calm? These are huge factors, after all, ATAM / TAM / Implementation Engineer / Technical Support Engineer at the end of the day is nothing but a glorified technical but only customer service oriented role with good communication skills, with 90% of the time talking in person or over the phone to a customer (SYS Admin/IT Analyst/Security Directory/Analyst) and installing and fixing the product technically.

    Implementation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newton, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CyberArk (Newton, MA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I applied via LinkedIn and received an email from the HR manager the following morning. This was a basic skills assessment/phone screen. She scheduled me for a phone interview with the Director of Field Services a couple days later. Based off this interview, I was offered an opportunity to complete a technical assignment, which involved installing the software and performing a couple tasks with it. A follow-up interview/presentation was scheduled after completion of the technical challenge. This was again with the Director of Field Services and a couple other directors at the company. The hour scheduled was not enough for this call, so another, final session was scheduled for another couple days later. In all, the process took about 2 weeks from my initial application to the final phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The final question of the first phone interview with the Director was "What website did you use to look up the answers?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I contemplated negotiating, but did not, as it was a significant pay increase already and I would be working from home, so saving on commuting.
