    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Optiv.

    Interview

    The first interview I had was a digital interview. I was asked about 20 questions and you have about 30 seconds (per question) to record your responses. My second interview was a traditional face-to-face interview. I was asked more in-depth industry questions (compared to the first interview) and also given a "pop quiz" in a sense, towards the end. After the second interview (about 1-2 weeks later), I received a call and was given an offer.
