    Interview Details

    I applied through university career recruitment. I was offered an interview on our campus. It took about 30 to 45 minutes. I was interviewed by an engineer who was rather friendly and didn't feel intimidating at all.

    ASIC Design Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Juniper Networks.

    Interview Details

    A few interviewers just asked me to describe things I had done at other companies. Others asked questions to make you think outside the box, and I had one session on a problem totally unrelated to ASIC design to see my thinking process.
    About a 4-5 hour interview without a lunch break. Pretty tired at end.

    QA Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Very detailed interview process - technical rounds with most seniors in the team. Straight forward and technical questions were asked. A strong technical knowledge was expected. More deeper technical questions if the candidate has prior experience in a particular subject. But, if answers were not known the interviewers were keen to explain and make it look like a healthy conversation.

    Resident Engineer Staff Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Sales Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Juniper Networks in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Heard from a scheduler within a week and was scheduled with Peer Interviews within a couple weeks. The scheduler was not very adept at her position since there were several miscommunications on their side, but nothing catastrophic.

    Since the 4 peer interviews it took 2 weeks for the in house recruiter to follow up with me (after I repeated reached out to her) and she indicated it would be a few more weeks, months, till they moved anyone to the next step (in person interview with hiring manager).

    At this point I am in limbo and its been about 6 weeks since I first spoke to someone there (not including the time between sending in a resume and first hearing from them). My thoughts is there are things going on which they are sharing and perhaps the position is being "restructured". Regardless, its a long time to be left hanging there.

    Interview Questions
    • no real 'out there' questions. Most of the questions were relevant to the position and my experience.   Answer Question
