Systems Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Austin, TX
Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Ixia in July 2014.

Interview Details

The interview process involved 6 phone interviews, over the course of 5 weeks. The questions ranged from personal to technical, and customer management. Overall the interviewers were staff and management. They all seemed to be burnt out and totally over worked. They made it seem like the company would toss them on the sword daily.

After being grilled over the phone for 5 weeks and being told I was an excellent candidate, they requested I fill out a application. I did so, and then waited. A week passed and I was told by email they were NO LONGER HIRING. Then their in house recruiter told me they are now laying people off.

This is the worst company, don't trust them, they will lead you on and string you along.

    Went through 3 rounds 2 technical and 1 manager round. The technical rounds were as expected all networking basics and routing and some security stuff. The manager round was more about trying to ascertain If I could handle pressure and collaborate with people all around the world.
