Average Interview

Application

I applied online – interviewed at Akamai in August 2014.

Interview

Applied online, got the email for the phone screening from the recruiter, did the screening with the recruiter (basic networking and linux questions). Got to the second round of phone interview and suddenly a shock. I applied for SDET position and interviewed with the recruiter for that position as it was with C/C++ and got the email for the 2nd interview for QA test engineer with Perl scripting. Interviewer was talking in a very low pitch voice that I couldn't figure out what he was asking at one go. Basic networking questions and two analytical thinking which is no where close to what the company does. I mean why do you need to ask those insane questions if all you are gonna do is technical things. Got one right and got one wrong! I wouldn't suggest this company to a friend!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Akamai (Cambridge, MA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    First one phone screening interview like basic networking and perl questions and then one technical interview over phone for 30 to 40 minutes duration. The next day they asked me to come for onsite interview and it is like 4 rounds of technical and each one is 45 minutes longer. This position requires knowledge in Perl, Base Scripting, Linux and Networking. Asked some white board scripting,reg exp, list and functions in perl. Overall its a very good interview. I enjoyed thoroughly.
