Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Juniper Networks in February 2015.

Interview

The process began with a questionnaire and telephone interview followed by a series of in person interviews with the hiring manager and senior leaders. In short, I found the experience to be highly unstructured and lacking professionalism. I had to constantly reach out to move the process forward. Moreover, during one of the interviews, the interviewer was not only a half an hour late but proceeded to disparage current/former colleagues, which was highly inappropriate. I left with a sense that the organizational culture may not be aligned with my values. This was reaffirmed weeks later when I had to make several inquiries to get an update on the decision.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Juniper Networks (Palo Alto, CA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Made it through the recruiters and hiring manager to the SVP and then never a phone call back from anyone. It wasn't about not getting the position I'm disappointed in, it was Juniper's lack of follow through to the applicant either way. Respect maters.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Juniper Networks (London, England (UK)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I was interviewed 16 times!!!! Yes 16. The a dinner. Some of the interviewers had not read my CV and where ill prepared. It appeared to me that the system was designed to get lots of people to say yes therefore reducing risk if the hire went wrong. I was offered the job and accepted it but the process almost put me off.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Juniper Networks in May 2011.

    Interview

    While Juniper seemed to be an excellent place to work (based on two rounds of interviews), they had significant gaps in communications about the status of the process (they are very slow). However, the kicker was when they brought me in for an interview *knowing* that they had a hiring freeze. In short, very unprofessional and a waste of everyone's time. I'd strongly suggest being very wary of them.
