Interview Details – I emailed the hiring manager for an interview. She got back to me right away. I had an initial screen interview with the manager on the first day which went well. Later I interviewed with two other engineers. On the last day I met with three other engineers, the Director of H/W and the VP of Engineering. Everyone asked good questions and were very friendly. All of the people I met at the interviews were people that I wanted to work with.
Interview Question – The interview questions were the standard technical type of questions. The hardest question involved a circular linked list which only had one pointer at the end of the linked list which pointed to the head of the list. How do you modify the link list to add in another element. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Palo Alto made me a good offer and did not negotiate higher. They ended up giving me a higher salary and options package than the one they originally offered that I was happy with.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Palo Alto Networks in February 2012.
Interview Details – The interview process went great. I received an email stating they had received my application and wished to set up an initial interview. That happened the next day. I spoke with a recruiting coordinator and she explained the job description and gauged my interest. I agreed that I was interested and so she set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. It was a day later I had that interview. I was told at that time they would like to set up a 1:1 interview. I was contacted about that a day or two later and we set it up the following week. I met with 5 people and the interview went well. I was contacted less than 2 weeks later with an offer which I accepted. The whole process from initial contact to my first day was about 3 weeks.
Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate the starting salary due to my experience. The advice I would give is to go in with an open mind and if you want the job but are not sure of the salary, let them know. It is possible they will surprise you.
