    Entry Level Network Security Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State Farm (Dallas, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and through campus career fair. They have 2 open positions for college grads: IT Analyst and Network Security Analyst. My qualifications are much stronger for IT Analyst because I have experience with programming and R, however they had me interview for the Network Security position, which I have zero experience with. I think is ridiculous from a company. I was clearly a good fit for that position but they might not understand how to analyze a resume. Anyways, I had a phone interview with HR and an analyst. HR was all behavioral questions and the other was all technical. She asked an insane amount of technical questions as well as have you rate your skills for about 50 different things. Obviously, as someone with not security background I didn't know anything. I think this company is terrible at seeing talent in front of them and determining what role fits your skills.

    Interview Questions

    • About 50 security skills. Rate from 0-5 how familiar you are with them. I think these were very detailed subjects, even if you have experience in security.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at State Farm (Jacksonville, FL) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Long process when I started. Go in to center for testing, then phone interview if you pass that, then in person interview with four different supervisors. Very intense, lots of challenging questions. I prepared by looking up typical interview questions for corporate interviews and just had some scenarios in my head that I could easily speak to. The in person interview was over an hour long.
