    Resident Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Juniper Networks.

    Interview Details

    This is probably one of the most rigorous interview processes that I've ever been through. The process included no less than 4 technical interviews as well as 2 personnel interviews. And then you get to interview with the client.

    The fact that Resident Engineers are actually embedded into a clients network team is the primary reason why the interview process is so rough. Juniper has to be 100% certain that the engineer knows what he's doing as they'll be the Juniper "SME" working with the client at the client's facilities.

    Interview Questions
    • The technical interviews are given by other RE's or SE's. They are heavily technical which I expected. But I have to say after the 3rd technical interview I was wondering if the job was really worth it - it is!   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I saw this position on LinkedIn and applied on juniper's job portal website. Got an email from them asking me for suitable date for an on-site interview. They mentioned in the email that there would be one "Programming Test" and then "Personal Interview".
    On the big day the test was on C, Data Structures and algorithms. There were 21 questions and 45minutes was given. Time was not at all sufficient. Questions were also not so easy. some were easy like fibonacci series and swapping of numbers using addresses. In the personal interview, he just asked if i had any questions and told me about juniper culture and my job role.
