SOC Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lisle, IL

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Secureworks (Lisle, IL) in March 2016.

Interview

Oh wow, where do I begin? First, through a recruiter, phone interview (screening). Then another a phone interview with an HR person there very similar to the screening. In both interviews your basic knowledge is tested in Networking, Security and Linux. I finally had an official interview with the folks there.

I have to admit, it was a bit intense. The environment was a bit intimidating in that the interviewers are all staring at you with dim light above. If it wasn't for my humor to have some control to the interview, I would've been very nervous. Then again, the position itself is intense and I felt the interview was to test your personality for the position.

Interview Questions

  • The screenings: port numbers, TCP handshake, IDS/IPS difference, basic Linux commands

    Actual interview: A bit overlap + SQL/XSS processes, phishing example. They also handed me handouts of Wireshark and IDS outputs and asked me to explain what was going on. Most of them were breaches, so be familiar.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Secureworks (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    The process took about a week from initially submitting an application. Was scheduled a phone interview which I thought went great and was able to answer the question provided. The recruiter said he would get back in touch since the manager was out of the country on business. Waited a week so I sent an email inquiring about the position with no answer. Waited another week and sent multiple responses with still no answer. Very unprofessional and if I was no longer being considered the decent thing to do would be to at least send an email stating I was no longer being considered.

    Interview

    You apply online then one of the many recruiters will contact you if your profile is suited via phone, they will ask basic questions and then they will ask technical and behavioural questions and if you clear that you will have an onsite interview with same but high level of questionnaire.
