    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TraceSecurity (Baton Rouge, LA).

    Interview

    Not a difficult process. The company is constantly short of personnel. It was a good opportunity to go back to the IT field

    Interview Questions

    • There was not a difficult question. The process was straight forward.   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    The company does not really give room for negotiation. There is an offer and you take it. Though the offer was below the market, my conditions at the moment were desperate.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TraceSecurity.

    Interview

    Phone call with directors and technical manager. My impression was that they want to gather basic information about your previous experiences, and how you deal with travel.

    Interviewers were friendly but not tech savvy. This plays in your favor if you have some kind of experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic questions about your preferences and past experience. The company is always looking for new personnel given the rotation rate.   Answer Question

    Information Security Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at TraceSecurity.

    Interview

    People who interviewed me were very formal and open (Phone interview) Unfortunately they appeared to lack serious expertise. They didn't understand some of the questions I asked!!

     Later I spoke to an analyst who better explained me job details and clarify me some aspects that previous people couldn't explain. (? )

    They should better clarify the expertise they require, and I mean it in a good sense. Tracesecurity is looking more for people with little or no experience. Tracesecurity doesn't even match the lower range of market salaries.

    Though interviewers let you relax, it should be remembered that prospect employees also judge a company.

    Interview Questions

    • The analyst was the one who asked serious questions about my experience and skills, but nothing that can't be answered. Some details about metasploit (very simple indeed) , basic networking and TCP/IP.   2 Answers

    Reasons for Declining

    There were three factors. They really offer nothing for relocation (barely covered airfare). They should be upfront and indicate that they don't offer relocation. In that way the interviewee nor the company wastes time in this process.
    - The salary is too low. I seriously doubt that they get experienced personnel.
    - Though the conversation with the analyst was very instructive the previous people (a Vice-president and a lady who is a manager) baffled me with their apparent ignorance.
