    I have been working at Trustwave full-time


    Great culture! It can be a bit intimidating at first, coming from a non-technical background, but with a very informative and fun 4 week training program and supportive colleagues and management, it sure made for a smooth transition into this role. I truly feel like i'm learning something new everyday and challenging myself to my full potential. It's the perfect company to work for at this time and not only because we have the coolest new office space but this industry is booming!


    Haven't found too many "cons" thus far but my only struggle is building pipeline and clientele. You won't start off making a ton of money but once you put in the work, deals will slowly start coming in.

    Advice to Management

    They are extremely supportive and motivating.

    SME Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Trustwave (Chicago, IL).


    I submitted my application on a Thursday & had a scheduled phone interview by Monday for later that week. I studied up on the company & knew it was somewhere I absolutely wanted to work. The HR rep who interviewed me on the phone was incredibly helpful, clarified that the job would be a good fit for me. He made himself available for me to reach out to if I had questions or wanted to follow up. I had an onsite interview with four managers a week after my phone interview. In total between the application & offer the total time it took was two & a half weeks. Everyone from Trustwave I spoke to was very friendly & open to answering questions.
