Application

I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at F5 Networks (Seattle, WA) in July 2014.

Interview

Applied online. Got call from recruiter. Set up phone interview with hiring manager in few days. Manager was very friendly. Explained about company. Asked my experience related to requirements of the position and interest in position and about the company. Asked some problem solving (DS/algorithm related) questions. They see how you approach it. Not the exact answer. Next round would have been coding related interview with team members onsite. But couldn't clear the initial screen.

    Interview

    Company was looking for an Intern for Manufacturing and Process plant. They mentioned me many things about company. I asked them many questions. they asked me many things about my resume listings, like Experience, Training, Projects. They were asking me my abilities for their work, and I never denied I was always ready to work for them. My interview was pretty easy. But I was stuck in one of the details of my previous project.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at F5 Networks (Seattle, WA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Received email from HR, that they would like to interview for Software Engineer position. The interview started off with the basic Networking questions (TCP/IP vs UDP), router, switch, etc.. Then moving towards more into core computer science questions with questions on Operating Systems with Inter Process Communication and Message Passing, then questions on C/C++ with the keyword usage. Overall an average interview, but since it was Software Engineer position I did not expect too much of networking questions, but since this is a networking company, it is assumed that these questions would be asked.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at F5 Networks (Seattle, WA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    I first had a phone screen which was too easy for anyone who's been in the field. I guess they just wanted to filter out the real candidates. The questions ranged from "How would you debug a network issue and what tools would you use?", "What is the difference between a hub and a switch?", "What is silly window syndrome?. It felt like he was reading the questions of off a list and he ran out of questions pretty quick.
