    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at AlienVault.


    Applied online, was invited to meet with the sales manager onsite with no pre qualifying phone calls or anything - thought... Sweet! Had interview, didn't really feel it personally... The questions were too generic, ambiguous and 'used car salesy'. It felt like the dude thought I wasn't a good fit basically right away - and he'd have been correct, as I definitely felt that AlienVault wasn't the company for me within about 2 minutes of the interview beginning. I mentioned I had several interviews lined up and was asked to keep in touch about how they went... he started to pack his stuff up before I had a chance to ask any questions... so I interjected with "what are the next steps" to which he said "errr, I'm interviewing a few more people and then I'll get back to you" I never heard back - I was fine with it all until the no response at all, very unprofessional in my humble opinion, but whatever, I scored a job with a company that has reviews 100x better and is an awesome place to grow a career. Good luck to Alienvault in the future as the product seems pretty awesome and clearly them and I were just not the right fit, but it would have been nice to get a response of some sort.
