Marketing Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Spirent Communications in December 2012.

Interview Details – They have me interviewed with total of 8 people lasted about two months w/o a final decision or any feedback afterward. The problem was that those interviewed were not well planned with unexpected next day meeting requests. So, my advice is to nail down interview agenda before you go!

Interview Question – They may ask you million dollar questions of the entire industrial trend, the competitive info and your solution ideas.   Answer Question

Senior Staff Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Spirent Communications in July 2012.

Interview Details – HR person contacts you and sets up phone interview with some lucky person call you. That person takes notes and told me it goes somewhere and he does not know what they do with it. I believe my interviewer was from Canada and nice guy and I answered
all questions correctly. So after that goes into a black hole. After multiple emails and voicemails to the HR contact and the main manager I cannot get any feedback ....or response. Totally rude. Funny i think its a great job, but like what is your problem ? Call me back. Why do you play these games for professional positions. From all appearances a bad place to work and what i can only surmise as an incompetent HR person and messed up hiring practices.

Interview Question – Most difficult thing is why do you waste my time with phone interview then just go silent ?
What the devil ?
