    Incident Response Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FireEye (Dallas, TX (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Technical assessment, phone screening followed by on site interview. Interviewers were a bit uncoordinated/unorganized. I often had the same question repeated to me on multiple occasions and felt I was not asked much about what I've done but rather how I "should fit their role." Personally, this interview for an entry level candidate was unnecessarily difficult despite me being clearly overqualified for the role.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at FireEye.

    Interview

    Recruiter was not organized. Solicited for interview times, then did not get back to me for a week and a half. Then had to solicit again for the following week for a phone screen. When it came time for the phone screen I never got a call. About 30 minutes later I got an email telling me she kept on trying to call but no answer. I had no missed calls from her.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at FireEye.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter who scheduled a 30 min phone screen. Asked about my background and told about the role in more detail. Next I had a second 30 min phone interview with a member of the team. After that I was invited to come in for an on-site interview. The on-site interview was 3 hours long and I met with multiple people. Sometime it was a 1:1 and other times it was a group. Great experience. Recruiter was very helpful throughout the whole process and I liked meeting so many people on the team. It was a very smooth and organized process.
