Senior Quality Assurance Engineer Interview
I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Riverbed Technology (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2012.
This was one of the best experiences I had interviewing. The recruiter who contacted me was great. All the team members during the interview were great, there was a different vibe to the company as soon as I got in. I liked it!
- Nothing really. They asked me all relevant questions that tested my skills. They were good, but, definitely not difficult ones. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
A local high paying offer seemed like a better choice for my situation. Otherwise Riverbed is a great company with great people.

Riverbed phone screens all candidates. Phone screens focus on technical knowledge in programming and networking. Candidates will normally find out the result of the phone screen within a few days. Candidates which perform well during phone screens are brought in for on-site interviews. These usually last the entire day. (Lunch is provided.) Candidates usually have six 45-minute interviews with various members of management and the engineering teams. Interviews focus the candidates knowledge in the following areas: programming, networking, OS (Linux preferred, but Windows also acceptable and needed), troubleshooting across the previous areas, and quality assurance. At the end of the day, the candidate meets with a member of management to discuss their impressions and experiences during the interview process. Candidates will normally find out the result of the interviews within a week. Occasionally, additional interviews may be arranged. All appointments are arranged by Human Resources. All interactions with the candidates, with the exception of the phone screen and interviews, are handled by Human Resources.
There is little wiggle room in negotiation. Riverbed prefers to offer great salaries and benefits up front.
