I had my first phone interview and was contacted shortly after about moving forward to speak with two other members of the marketing team over the phone. After my last interview, I was called and offered the position.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Juniper Networks.

    Interview

    Applied online, had normal phone screen with HR and then I was scheduled to have a phone interview with the hiring manager. Strangest phone interview EVER! Hiring manager said the interview would go like this - they would talk about the job & the company for 10 minutes, I would tell why I thought I was qualified for the job for 10 minutes and then they would answer any questions I had for 10 minutes.
    There were zero questions for me. It was like having to give a 10 minute speech on why you're a good candidate. It was not a conversation by any means. It was obvious that I was on speaker and they had themselves muted while I was talking and the one question I didn't have the guts to ask was "why would I want to work for someone who can't even be bothered to give 100% of his attention to a prospective job candidate?"

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Juniper Networks.

    Interview

    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.
