    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at SecureWorks (Atlanta, GA).


    First was a phone screening with the recruiter, followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager. Then followed by an almost half-day, multiple hours, marathon interview. Met with 5 people back to back, from various teams.

    Interview Questions

    • Not really difficult but because meeting with so many people, all at different times, you repeat the same questions and answers over and over.   1 Answer
