Difficult Interview

Intern Software Engineer Interview

Intern Software Engineer
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Juniper Networks in April 2014.

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.

Interview Question – Something on BFS   Answer Question

Contractor Interview

Contractor
Westford, MA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Juniper Networks.

Interview Details – Background check, interviews. I knew everybody already.

Negotiation Details – A pain in the backside. They down'd the offer in title because they "didn't have the reqs". Which I think is bs: apparently, the way you get promoted is you resigned, work someone else for a year, and then get promoted to "Distinguished Engineer" to come back to Juniper, if you're not already sick of the place.
