Product Marketing Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Aruba Networks.

Interview Details – Four to five individual interviews within one day, around three to four hours. First it started with the basic understanding of the role and function then the collaboration aspect. Then the second talked about the product knowledge, product launch understanding, and cultural fit. The third explored more of personality trait, aspiration, and fulfillment. Fourth, exploring more of the underlying reason conducting such program/activities related to product marketing roles (what you did, Why you did it, and How you did it). The last covered the aspects of technical propensity - that you know the product/feature/technology landscape of what you are marketing.

Overall- a well thought, smooth interview process. Very courteous and great individuals.

Interview Question – Tell me the thought process and planning as well as the execution in the launching a product x or creating a positioning for a product/feature Y.   View Answer

Principal Network Engineer Interview

Principal Network Engineer
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Aruba Networks.

Interview Details – Phone screening was done by the hiring manager who was very technical. He asked questions on technology and how things work to gauge the depth and suitability to bring me in for personal face to face interview. Almost entire team had a go at me. Starting with a lead senior engineer who was CCIE. The support team is really capable and very technical. One of the best I have seen in the industry in terms of experience and knowledge. Interview lasted about 4 - 5 hrs. Questions were based on networking technology and troubleshooting skills. In depth packet level debugs were asked. Everything on my resume was tested. Finally I made it through and worked with this team for about one and half year.

Interview Question – troubleshooting OSPF issues   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Aruba Networks in October 2012.

Interview Details – Got a phone call from the recruiter.

I had two phone screens after that. The phone screens were pretty easy. Asked me about my skills and projects.

They sent a quiz to solve after that, which consisted of around 3 questions. Which was pretty straightforward too. A phone call from the VP followed that, and they agreed to fly me in.

The onsite consisted of 4 interviews. The interviews were pretty straighforward. Usual coding questions, nothing too difficult. There was a design round, and a pair programming round.

Interview Question – Nothing really. I was a bit stumped in the design round, but got it eventually.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had another offer from another company, which I went ahead with.

Vice President Customer Support Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aruba Networks in April 2012.

Interview Details – Had one interview with a headhunter. It was the most thorough headhunting process I have ever experienced, including face to face meeting and very long telephone discussion. I was very impressed. I did not meet with anybody from the company as they wanted a candidate with domain expertise, which I did not have.
