    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Riverbed Technology in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to a Riverbed recruiter and around 2 days later I received a call to setup a phone screen. There were no technical questions asked during my phone screen, I was told what the position would entail and asked whether or not I would be able to move closer to the office. I was asked to give a brief description of my background. Two days later I was scheduled for an on-site interview the following week.

    On site interview consisted of 5 45 minute interviews. During each of the interviews we went over my past experience and I was asked to solve some coding problems. After the third interview I went to lunch with the group of people interviewing me. All of them were friendly.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you check if one word in an anagram of another? Some linked list traversal questions. A question involving sorting algorithms. A few pattern matching questions which required perl/python and regex knowledge. Asked for several test cases after explaining some components.   View Answer

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Riverbed Technology in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college as well as by contacting the recruiter. Had one round of phone interview with the first question being about traversing binary trees which was expected as I was prepared. The second question was a tougher question about probability which I answered to the best of my knowledge. They wasted a lot of my time by scheduling the phone interview and the interviewer not turning up. Twice!

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Riverbed Technology.

    Interview Details

    I sent my resume in a job fair in the university. So the 1st interview occurred exactly in the job fair. I did very well, because the question is simple. I remember it is about counting sort. And after a week, I got the 2nd interview at the career center (again in the university). Roughly 1 month later (may be 3 weeks?). I got contact from a recruiter and he was quite positive on my profile. Later on, a manager contacted me and he talked briefly about the company. I finally got 3 interviews (all technical) before I got the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Check whether an area is overlapped with a given one. And some classic question such as remove a node in a link list. (a blackbox function decides which node to remove).   Answer Question
