    Pre-Sales Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sun Microsystems.

    Interview Details

    Required an indication from a former co-worker recommending me for the position and top schools on resume to get into an screening process. After that phase I managed to get a phone interview followed by office interview and trip to California for a final interview. At that time I was living abroad. Relocation package was minimum but good enough to cover expenses in selling my car, packing and moving to USA, including tax assistance during first year. I also had a relocation agent helping me in opening a back account, getting a credit card, look for a place to leave, getting an id, etc. Sun was a great company!

    Negotiation Details
    It was an entry level job with good benefits and salary so I did not want to negotiate. Of course, I did compare with salary I was receiving on previous job and it was in fact a good offer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sun Microsystems in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Had screening discussion with the HR that was followed by efficient scheduling process that led to a phone interview.

    The interview was with future peer. Questions were not hard, but I believe that I missed the point. instead of being creative and out of teh box i tried to be conservative and careful. This will not get you far with Google.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sun Microsystems in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process consisted of a phone screen followed by a group interview with people I'd be working closely with. Questions were pretty straightforward such as "Why do you want to work at Sun", "What do you think this position entails", and "What skills do you bring to this position"

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Be prepared to answer the salary range question during the phone screen. Sun pays fairly, so you don't have to worry about being low-balled. My salary was exactly at the median for the year 2008.
