    Cybersecurity Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DirectDefense (Englewood, CO) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very informal. It was more like they're looking for bodies to fill slots than they are to find cybersecurity professionals. There were only a coupld of short (<30 minute) phone interviews and then I was offered a position. The questions were very basic and really didn't ask about cybersecurity experience.
