    Director Level Role Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at FireEye (Milpitas, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I reached out via the website and a friend I had at the company and was contacted by a really nice recruiter shortly after. She just took over recruiting for this role and contacted the hiring manager whom she did not know yet. After presenting me as a candidate she scheduled the phone interview with the hiring manager. The interview with the hiring manager went well and we scheduled an in person onsite interview with 3 people. When I arrived in time I had to wait for 15 mins for the first person scheduled to interview me so we had barely 15 mins left. The next part of the interview was via phone and it was awesome because the person over the phone displayed such a great sense of humor. Last in person interview was fine and organized and he walked me out. After my personal "Thank you" notes one person even responded. I then reached out to the HR recruiter and she promised to follow up with an update. That never happened.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at FireEye (Milpitas, CA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter about a month after I applied. A 30-min telephone interview was scheduled with the hiring manager. The hiring manager asked questions about my background and how they related to the role. About a week later, I was scheduled for an on-site interview with two other managers. The first manager I met was great to talk to, since the conversation flowed smoothly as questions were asked about how my skills would be a fit for the position. Speaking to the second manager was a different experience. The minute that manager walked in, the person seemed disengaged and uninterested. The manager also asked similar questions like the previous one, but there was a lot of negative non-verbal communication displayed which indicated that no matter what I said, this person was not receptive to any of it.
