    Security Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN (US)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    In-person, group interview. I was provided with a couple of technical questions that lacked context. The team seemed incredibly paranoid about discussing their environment. I don't know anyone that would take a job without knowing what the environment is like beforehand. Eventually I was able to figure out the job was just looking at logs all day, rather than developing and testing security solutions as claimed by the job description.

    Almost all of their questions were stereotypical of an interview: "How do you work with others?", "How do you deal with conflict?", "Give me an example of a time when you X or Y." It reminded me of the interviews I would have back in high-school when working as a cashier, retail associate, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • <given a sheet of paper with some context-less data>
       "Tell me from a security perspective what is wrong with this?"

    Interview

    The HR recruiter arranged a panel interview with about 8 people who worked in the technology department. The recruiter was personable and helpful, but the team manger was a condescending a-hole during the interview who cut me off mid-sentence repeatedly to challenge my credentials. It was so bad I withdrew my application after it was over. I had a much more welcoming interview with another department at the university.
