Network Engineer Interview

Network Engineer
Seattle, WA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 days - interviewed at F5 Networks in October 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process consisted of two parts. One part team technical interview and second part high level though process one on one style. Overall I enjoyed the interview sessions. The only pain factor was that they were setup with one day’s notice, this made it kind of difficult to schedule around my previous employer.

Network Engineer Interview

Network Engineer

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at F5 Networks in January 2012.

Interview Details – I applied for the role of a Network Support Engineer with F5 Networks in Surrey, UK. I got a reply from the HR Lead person within minutes of applying asking for a convenient time for a telcom interview as well as a short technical 'assessment'. I responded with a time range asking that they pick an appropriate time and communicate same back to me. The appointment was shortly confirmed for the the next week and I was quite excited at the opportunity to interview.
On the day of the phone interview, I took out time to go over the advertised role and my CV, hoping that I'd be prepared enough. That was very poor judgment on my part!
Preliminary questions went very well. They seemed to have on offer my dream role and I was quite pleased with that. Then came the technical assessment part of the interview. To be honest, although I have some 8 years plus experience with IT systems, I was quite taken aback with how much I had lost touch with the basics. Questions asked were grouped according to the following topics:
i. Layer 2 (OSI)
ii. Layer3,
iii. Layer 4
iv. UNIX/Linux
v. DNS
