Exciting News!

  1. Security Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United Kingdom
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ground Control (United Kingdom) in Jan 2021


    The interview process was very poor because the company is now looking for a security engineer but they don't know what skill set they want.

    I got the worst feedback in my life tell me I wasn't structured enough and I thought to myself if our advisories are structured we can predict all their moves.

    It a great company with a nice version but I wouldn't want to work there

    Have you use ISO27001 before and describe it
