    Payroll Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Juniper Networks (San Jose, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    HR replied via email... asked to answer 10 specific questions. #9) WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT SALARY and #10) WHAT ARE ASKING FOR YOUR NEW SALARY. Companies play this game in order to preclude any negotiation / fair salary discussion. Because I kindly deferred to the "This information is confidential and respectfully request the salary range which Juniper expects to pay" They then threw my resume in the garbage can. I have been burned by this tactic before, that time cost me $15K per year over 2+ years. The only way to stop it is to not answer. There really should be a law against it (much like the 'What is your facebook password ?' law).

    Instructional Designer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Juniper Networks (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Phone and face to face interviews with others in the department were very pleasant and informative. They were conversational and even enjoyable, and I began to develop a picture of how the department worked, its goals, etc. Final interview with the manager was also conversational and informal, but nothing I had made sure to bring up with the other interviewers had been passed on to him. Even more disconcerting, it became clear that the organization he presented was very different from the one the other interviewers had presented.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Juniper Networks (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    5 different phone interviews + an in person - day long interview consisting of one-on-one interviews plus group interviews. The entire process took over 90 days. I would be contacted and interviewed and then Juniper would drop off the deep end for a month and then call again. The most unprofessional interview process i have ever had been through.

    Instructional Developer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Juniper Networks (San Jose, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First of all, was invited to apply by current employee who'd seen my LinkedIn profile. Job description was partially applicable. Was hoping they were looking for someone to develop into the role. Submitted application, and was sent an email with pre-screen questions. Responded to that, sure that a phone interview would not be offered (was perhaps a little too honest about skill gaps). Surprisingly, a phone interview was scheduled with three consecutive people. Each interview was to be a half hour. Baffled, but hopeful at this point. First person talked very quickly for about 15 minutes. Content over the cell phone was garbled. Tried to recap for understanding. Was told to simply answer the question. Asked for the question to be repeated slowly and clearly. Best guess is that it was about philosophical approach to the role. Second person focused on questions about handling difficult people, though this person was friendly. Third person was late for the call. That's not a problem; things happen. That person made a point of stating familiarity with my LinkedIn profile and résumé. Then asked a couple questions that were condescending in tone and were clearly from someone who had not read my LinkedIn profile, nor my résumé. While it was clear after the first interview that the company was not a good fit, by the third person, I really wanted to use the time to my advantage somehow, and produce something of value from the conversations. Alas, that did not happen.
