I haven’t left feedback on Glassdoor before, and decided to make an exception for XIFIN. The interview process was among the most unprofessional I’ve seen in my entire career. I was apprehensive about applying because of their Glassdoor reviews. According to former employees, company management leaves fake positive review to balance out the real ones. I decided to give it a chance anyway. Recruiting got in touch with me via text message a whole month and a half after I applied for the job. Your guess as to why is as good as mine. I had a 30-minute phone screen where they explained the role and asked questions about my resume. They mentioned that several analysts had left the company once they learned the basics of security and pressed me on how long I would stay in the role if hired. The way this was described suggests that they blame former employees for progressing in their careers. It didn’t seem like there was any self-reflection on the company’s part – but if analysts keep leaving as soon as they can, there may be a reason for that. I passed the phone screen and went on to my first interview with a member of the security team. It was mostly a personality interview with a few questions about my security background. A few days went by with no feedback, and during this time I received an offer from another company. I sent recruiting an email asking for an update and didn’t get a response. Communication from them up to this point had already been lackluster, so I reached out to the hiring manager for feedback. This prompted recruiting to reply, who said that the first interview went well. They wanted to know my availability for the next interview, which I sent. Even with my availability on hand, they wanted to call me to schedule for some reason. Recruiting emailed me on a weekday, asking if they could call me on Saturday to schedule. I agreed, and suggested a time for the call, which – you guessed it, went unanswered. Apparently, they expected me to sit around and wait for a phone call on Saturday. When they did call, I gave them the same availability information that I already sent via email the week before. They weren’t at a computer at the time and had to schedule the interview later in the day. I started to wonder if recruiting was just this disorganized or if it had become intentional. What a mess. I attended a video interview with the security team the following Monday. The meeting only opened five minutes before it started, which didn’t give me enough time to test and troubleshoot my audio and video settings. Half of the team disabled their webcams and were silent for the duration. It was supposed to be a technical interview, but none of the questions were designed to gauge my technical ability. Nothing about networking, packet analysis, intrusion detection, or threat modeling. The standard security interview format that works, was replaced with one that calls for the candidate to self-assess. For example, “Would you consider yourself an expert with Splunk?” Most of the questions they asked were basic, redundant, or both, with tells me a couple things. 1) They don't know how to conduct a structured security interview. 2) They aren’t technical enough to assess a candidate who is. Here is what I mean - I explained that I am proficient with regex, and have experience writing Splunk parsers for raw logs. But then I was asked later if I could parse json data in Splunk. There were issues like this throughout the interview that made it a little bit awkward. I think they’re over-cautious because they feel burned by other analysts who left but haven’t asked themselves why that is. They don’t seem very technical, so I think the best they can do is look for someone who will self-proclaim expertise at every item on a checklist. I sent a follow-up email to the team thanking them for their time and emailed recruiting to make sure they were aware of the deadline for my existing offer. I gave them until my offer expired to respond and both emails went ignored, so I emailed recruiting to withdraw my application. They sent a short reply about 10 seconds later, just to make a point that they had intentionally been ignoring my correspondence. I’ve never seen anything so petty. It is unprofessional to “ghost” a candidate, especially at that stage in the process. I almost withdrew my application twice because communication from their recruiting team was so poor but committed to finishing it. XIFIN – if you do get curious why analysts keep leaving, someone on the security team exudes complacency and arrogance. It might benefit them to remember that analysts are human beings as well as company assets. I’m fortunate to have learned their character during the interview process. TLDR: You may want to think twice before you apply to XIFIN’s security team.

I had a phone interview with Melissa Yost for an operations role. Prior to this call I hadn’t had much practice interviewing so I was a bit nervous about the whole thing. Not more than five minutes into our conversation, I felt more comfortable and confident about the interview. Melissa was extremely attentive, knowledgeable, genuinely passionate about Xifin and over all a great interviewer. She paid really close attention to everything I said, thoroughly reviewed my resume and did a phenomenal job explaining Xifin’s position in the industry. The quality of my screening interview with Melissa just tells me they care for their talent and have a vested interest in their team. No offer or rejection yet, regardless of the outcome, this review is staying, Melissa is great at what she does! we need more caring, considerate and genuine recruiters like her.

The interview process began with a phone cnn interview. I was brought in for a multi panel interview rotation. They most eye opening comment was when an interviewer told me that managers regularly yell at employees. I did not get the sense that the interviewers wanted to even be there. If you are considering interviewing here the glassdoor reviews appear to be foreshadowing the company culture.

I became aware of the company through an executive recruiter and started following them from a career interest perspective 6 months prior to my application. I applied for the role in mid December and within a few days was contact by HR for a preliminary discussion. A couple of days later was asked via a voicemail for a telephone interview with the hiring manager between Christmas and New Years which did not fit into my schedule. I offered alternate availability the first week of January knowing that they may not be able or willing to wait. The HR person was very responsive and set up the telephone interview in early January. The telephone interview with the hiring manager took about 45 minutes during which they provided more detail on the role and were forth coming in their answers to my questions. The hiring manager defined next steps and timelines. Within 3 business days, HR contacted me and asked me to come in for a face to face interview the following week with the hiring manager and 6 key stakeholders. They were very well organized with an agenda, meeting location, directions, etc. The in person interviews were structured and informative. People were friendly and asked thoughtful questions. At the end of the in person interview it was shared with me the remaining timelines (about 2 weeks) and how many people were in this phase of the process. It was very helpful. Within the 2 weeks I was emailed that they wanted to move forward with me as a candidate and received an offer letter within 2 days. Employment offer was conditional pending a thorough background check and drug test which was expected given the industry they serve and the information they handle. Overall this interview process was a breath of fresh air. HR was incredibly responsive and professional. The hiring manager stuck to the timeline and gave concrete feedback.

Questions regarding what type of individual you are as well as where you are coming from. After words they inform you of the type of environment you will be working in and the type if work you will be responsible for.

Interview was a group of 3 people. They decided to do it as a panel instead of individual interviews. The questions mainly focused on prior experience and what I could bring to the company. 9 out of 10, would interview again.

HR called and set up the interview time with me . I was instructed to check with the receptionist, who was very pleasant and offered me something to drink. Then I was led to a conference room by the panel which consisted of the department director and supervisors I'd be working with. They made me feel very welcomed and were excited for the interview. They were kind and open and seemed interested in what I had to say. What I liked the most about this interview is that I was asked what I was looking for in a company. They made sure I found out about XIFIN too.

Received a phone call approximately one week after I had submitted my application online. An interview was scheduled for the following week. The interview itself lasted about one hour and involved a variety of questions ranging from common interview questions to role-specific questions probing skillsets. I had interviewed with two department heads and found the interview to be friendly but matter-of-fact. That same week I had received phone informing me that the company was interested in moving forward with the hiring process. Overall, the interview process was highly-efficient and professional.

  • Role-specific questions related to GRC systems, general audit knowledge, technical acumen, etc.

The interview lasted for 45 minutes with the hiring manager and two more senior employees . I was provided a security badge since the HIPAA mandates security of heath care data.
