    Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EdgeCast Networks.

    Interview

    I applied on their website, and was first contacted by their recruiter a few days later, then went through a pretty light phone screen, then on to a 3 hour on site interview meeting about 5-6 people. The interview itself was quite enjoyable since they let me talk a lot about my previous experience and projects and did not focus so much on things like whiteboarding and coding puzzles. The HR staff was also very friendly and helpful. Although unfortunately I didn't receive an offer, I really liked the atmosphere and attitude of the people working there and it does seem like a great place to work.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter. They scheduled a phone interview . But the hiring manager didn't call me at the scheduled time. I sent an email to the recruiter to find out what happened. Because they wasted my money time and made me wait for the call. The recruiter never bothered to reply back to my email. This is so unethical of them . I am utterly disappointed.

    NOC Support Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EdgeCast Networks (Playa Vista, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    After sending my resume to a friend that currently works for Edgecast (now known as Verizon Digital Media Services), the recruited called me a couple weeks later to set up an in-person interview. The first interview involved interviewing with multiple leaders within the NOC on a 1-on-1 basis. After the first interview, the recruiter would call back to set up a second interview with upper management. Then, finally, if you passed the interview, the recruiter will submit a verbal offer and then set up the usual background check.

    NOC Engineer Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EdgeCast Networks.

    Interview

    I applied through Verizon website and i was called because the recruiter said some managers liked my resume. I got a phone interview and it seems the recruiter was not quite familiar with some technical skills i discussed but she kind of thought i had some experience working on cool stuffs. I got an appointment date for skype interview. The first hardship i had was with the wi-fi connection from their end. I think it was preety bad. Secondly, the first 2 interviewers were great and they asked about my knowledge of the company which i was able to answer because I had researched about them. I was thrown out by the last interviewer who was a little unfriendly. He asked me to describe HTTP header. I was alittle taken back by this question because although i am quite familiar with HTTP protocol I've never taken note of the packet header.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EdgeCast Networks.

    Interview

    The process was pretty smooth, starting with recruiter phone call, in-person interviews, technical and non-technical questions, 2nd interview spoke with director and other team managers to see where my path would lead if I were to join. Eventually we found it wasn't going to be the best fit. Always good to get out there and interview with companies that you believe in what they are doing.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me why would I want to move from my current position, which turned out to be higher than the one I was applying to, and it turned out to not be a good a fit.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EdgeCast Networks (Santa Monica, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and EC had a rather quick turn-around time in getting back to me. (appreciated this aspect) Following the initial contact: -Was told I was under-qualified for the position I applied for and then referred to a remedial position -Went over 20 emails back and forth with an initial recruiter -Given a salesdrive "sales assessment" to complete -Incorrectly scheduled for a 1:1 interview w/sales mngr (didn't work for either of our schedules) -Rescheduled for interview with new recruiter for a new time -Sales manager called me 10 minutes late for the meeting and failed to leave me a voicemail -Voluntarily withdrew from interview process I totally understand that this company is still experiencing some growing pains and a recent acquisition. However, the whole process was just an overall cumbersome experience and not at all encouraging to go through. On the positive side, the recruiters that I did work with were very friendly and pretty quick to respond to questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at EdgeCast Networks (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    The hiring process at Edgecast moved really fast. I really liked their Recruiter/HR team. Extremely courteous and friendly HR people. I got a phone interview in a couple days with HR and moved onto an on site interview just as quick the following week. On Site Interview: Met with first NOC Supervisor in charge of NOC Monitoring. Great interview experience. Nice and friendly conversation. Thoroughly good interview with questions exchanged back and forth. So far so good. Met with two more NOC 'Support' Supervisors: This is where things got less desirable. Not a smile cracked from these two. The entire interview from here on in felt super condescending. Technical questions were a breeze if you've had experience in this field and are comfortable with Linux/Basic Networking. It got really uncomfortable and 'corporate' feeling right away as questions started firing off. I knew right then and there this wasn't the place for me, but the potential growth seemed promising so I kept at it, trying my best. I'm glad I interviewed here and experienced it. Edgecast seems like a pretty cool growing company with great opportunities, but aside from these individuals I encountered in the NOC department, it CLEARLY seemed that some very under qualified people here want to keep their jobs. If you want happy interviewees and good answers, don't play this bad cop good cop thing. See ya Edgecast!
