    Anonymous Employee in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Equinix in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Connected with an HR person directly through a Linkedin connection. Very quick response and interest. We completed a phone discussion and I was asked to come in for a face to face. During the face to face, the HR Representative was not engaging, arrogant and not opened to suggestions. They made statements thing would be done his way. As a professional, I never been treated that way. The HR Rep left the meeting room for 10 minutes toward the later part of our discussion. If Equinix hires individuals like him, I would not recommending working for Equinix.

    First starts out with emails from HR who determine if you are a good fit with basic questions about past experience. From their they send your resume to the hiring manager where they review and set up an in person resume. HR remains the communication between you and the hiring manger until the interview. The in person interview is very standard questions and is read directly off a script. It's your basic copper/fiber/network troubleshooting questions with some technical Cisco based questions.
