Interviewed at Extreme Networks

I had a phone interview that lasted about 30 minutes with who would soon become my manager. After a successful phone interview, I was asked to come in for a formal interview with 3-4 managers/project managers/colleagues I'd be working with. Although I was not qualified for the position, they saw me as a valuable employee for another internship opportunity.

Engineering Interview

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Extreme Networks in June 2011.

By the questions they ask during the interview, you can gather alot of what they do well and where they struggle so you can make a decision if this is right for you.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. Typical interview questions. Some related to how you would handle situational issues.   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Finance OM Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Santa Clara, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Extreme Networks in February 2009.

Interview Details – Initial response to Interview process is favorable although hired as a temp for first 15 to 18 months. Shortage of personnel led to permanent offer. Interviews were candid, positive and comfortable. Once hired, the offer was a bit less than desirable but acceptable considering benefits that make a huge difference.

Interview Question – Why haven't you been working for the past several months?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very short - having no benefits and the need for permanent employment, one tends not to squabble. I knew that I could work hard to earn more later.
