    Resident Engineer Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Juniper Networks.

    Interview Details

    As with most technical positions at Juniper, the interview process was primarily focused on skills and knowledge. I had been working with Juniper before and had been part of interview teams so I knew what to expect and prepared myself.

    When applying for an engineering job, expect multiple technical interviews with groups of two or more. Make sure that you don't lie in your resume. If you claim to know OSPF, you better know it well because you will be grilled on it. You are not expected to know everything, so it is up to you to say "I don't know", or "I am not certain, but I would expect it to be so and so". Never, never ever make up an answer.

    Interview Questions
    • The "which bit goes here" questions. I hate them, and they prove nothing more than that the candidate prepared and is able to memorize stuff that you'll find out with one google query. Except of course the most important stuff like "what are EXP bits".   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    With Juniper, I never needed to negotiate, they always outperformed my expectations.

    Very slow to communicate. Indications that position needed to be filled immediately yet after 3 weeks no decision has been made. Unsure if position is filled or not and again - lack of any communication.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Juniper Networks in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    One on One interviews, both in person and on the phone. This took place over the course of several weeks as the group came down to 2 qualified candidates, myself and another person. In the end it was decided to hire both of us as we have complimentary skills. We are both in the group to this day.

    Negotiation Details
    very easy - I asked for a salary and got it. Truthfully, this interview was in 2008. *I* was recruited as I had specific skills required for a hard-to-fit position.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Juniper Networks in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Long process. Multiple interviews over a couple of months. Interviewed with future peers, boss, co-workers, and management.
     It took a couple of weeks for the paperwork to go through after I was told verbally that I had the job. The whole process took so long that I called to check to see if something went amiss and started interviewing elsewhere.
     I already had a contract job with the company, so the interview process wasn't as long as others being hired at the same time as me. One of them had 16 interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • It has been two years since I interviewed for this job. I don't recall the questions; just that there were a lot of them and of all types since I interviewed with all types. I don't recall any particularly difficult question. There were a few unexpected questions just because that is the nature of the jobs of those interviewers. Technical questions included topics from across the product portfolio, and from architectural to specific commands to troubleshooting.   Answer Question
