Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Red Hat in April 2013.

Interview

Had phone interview with marketing guy. Went well. Then never heard back from recruiter as to whether or not the process would move forward. So I called the recruiter back a week later and she told me that they had already made an offer to another candidate! What a waste of my time. The duplicity of HR and recruiters at Red Hat leave a bad taste in my mouth and now I never want to work for them or do business with them. Dishonest company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Red Hat (Dallas, TX) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was very informal. I did a phone screening, and face-to-face, and then a mock presentation. The technical screening (phone) consisted the usual techie questions. The panel interview was a presentation in front of the sales reps.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Red Hat (New Delhi (India)).

    Interview

    The Red Hat interview process is a slow at first as they take their time to process the resume and shortlist. But once the resume is shortlisted, activity was quite swift with 1-2 updates each week. I had to go through 6-7 rounds of interview (they were more like discussions) and in the process I talked to 6 people from different work groups that my role would need interaction with. All these people gave their inputs to HR who consolidated the data and created a well-rounded profile. It was a mix of telephonic and in-person meetings, not necessarily in Red Hat office premises and the company was helpful in accommodating my prior commitments.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about ideas for my new job profile and my approach towards this role   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation phase was very quick, as pretty much every thing was standard except the actual CTC and role. It lasted 1 week during which both Red Hat and I came to a common position. Their main negotiation plank was my early joining.
