    Interview Details

    Looks like they are in mode of elimination and not selection.
    on-site interview asked about push/pop stack.
    Spent lot of time in discussing other technical stuff before this.
    Later complained that no time to code !? Something does not seem right.

    Surprised to see that interview room already has same written on white board by earlier interview.

    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Arista Networks in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The first interview of the morning was face to face the VP of Customer Engineering. He was extremely rude and condescending throughout the interview. I would never put this guy in front of a customer. He was more interested in checking email than speaking with a candidate. Other engineers and executive were equally arrogant and condescending. The only person I liked was the CEO; she was very personable and had great conversational skills. Bottom line, I felt so uncomfortable with the company after this interview, which was the first one in the morning that I almost left. I was shocked when I got the offer but I turned it down.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really difficult. ECMP questions. LACP has hasing questions. And packet delay over 1gig and 10gig interfaces.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The person that would have been my boss, the Vice President of Customer Engineering, flat out told me there was no commission plan however he said I would make $500,000 off the stock once the company went public. This is a big “no-no” and seemed very shady to me for an executive of the company to make promises that may or may not happen.

    This is a Cisco boy’s club so if didn’t/don’t work there don’t waste your time interviewing.
