    Average Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Proofpoint (United States)


    The process was chaotic. I had several phone screens and had a two hour technical grilling. I was told I passed. But I got no more interviews and was then later told they had gone with another candidate. Based on LinkedIn, they hired a white male. The company clearly struggles with hiring diversity candidates in the Sales org.

    Standard networking and routing questions.
