    Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SOAProjects (Mountain View, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    1:1 interviews (about 20 mins each) with HR, CEO, Partner. Group interview of 40 minutes with 2 Partners. In hindsight, I am not surprised by how fast the process was; I suspect the leadership team did not want me to interview too many employees for fear unsatisfactory reviews would be revealed.

    Computer Forensics Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SOAProjects (Mountain View, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process took around 3-4 weeks. Although the entire course of the process was lengthy, they moved quickly between each interview.

    My first interview was supposed to be with the manager/leader of the forensics division, but I was notified that he was too busy, and was rescheduled to speak with two members of the team. They asked me basic personal questions and probed my technical capabilities.

    The next interview was with a different team member, and was technical.

    The third interview briefly introduced me to the manager of the team, and then I was given a take-home, three-question quiz with technical scenarios. They wanted me to complete it within 24 hours, but I finished it in one.

    Finally, I spoke with a member from HR, who told me I was the top candidate for the position, and that I would be contacted later with details and an offer.

    After they had made me an offer, I noticed that it was very low compared to the standard entry level salary for the position, so I attempted to negotiate. They were willing to raise it only slightly, but it was still not enough to help me with the cost of living in the local area. After weeks of very slow back-and-forth communications, they told me that they were going to compare my "skill" to other candidates. Hours later, they told me they had withdrawn my offer and were going to pursue a different candidate.

    In all honesty, it felt like they had chosen a different candidate who was willing to accept their lowball.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SOAProjects (Mountain View, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Process consists of about 5 interviews: 1. HR, 2. Top executives/Head of Line of Business, 3. Senior Managers, 4. Managers, 5. Consultants

    HR/Executives normally make sure you have enough years of experience and it is relevant, also they asking you about your salary expectations.
    Then Subject Matter Experts start asking you very detailed questions as you are about to do it.
    My area is IT audit so I was asked about very specific question about IT general controls with detailed break down by steps and drill down into each step with the explanation of each step.
    So my recommendation: Recall you previous relevant experience and rethink it by making it clear and structured.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical questions regarding job responsibilities are very detailed, so recall and review what you did in the past regarding the position you are applying to bring more clarity, structure and readiness.

      Be prepared for logical puzzles such as about coins and psychological puzzles with decision making.
