Easy Interview


I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Gavin de Becker & Associates (Glendale, CA (US)) in October 2015.


1. Phone interview 2. In-person interview 3. In-person logic quiz 4. Background investigation questions 5. Virtual interview questions (2+ hours long interview) 6. Additional background question interview 7. Polygraph 8. Offer

Very easy but time-consuming. Be very truthful and honest in all your responses as they will find gaps and they will ask for additional information. Be ready for them to call your previous employers, friends, family, and even people you do not give them permission to contact. They will even ask you to take a "voluntary" polygraph (nothing says cutting-edge security like outdated technology). Overall, a very interesting and engaging interview process, though I'd do your homework beforehand to make sure this firm is really for you.
