    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sophos (Burlington, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Initial corporate recruiter screening: very pleasant; asked questions to clarify what positions I was looking into. He said I met criteria for a couple of positions. It took over a week before I h

    Dev Engineer tech screening: up beat interviewer, easy to talk to and explain my experience and what I am looking for.

    On-site interview: Test Engineer was very tough on what I knew about testing; I learn't some things from him and I believe I conveyed I understood the new concepts and provided info related to using the new information on his followup questions. Next interview with hiring manager was not as tough, but at the end of the meeting it was clear top her and me that I was not a fit. Reason was this group did not do pre-screening, the pre-screening was by another group, but their rec went away.

     It was good interview practice for me.
