    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Sungard Availability Services.

    Interview

    Started with a phone screen and ended with a moderate length in person interview. Was interviewed by the architects at the time. Nothing fancy, pretty straightforward. The interviewers were relaxed, no pressure and no air of arrogance or superiority.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sungard Availability Services (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Applied online through their website.

    Initial Phone Screening included basic networking questions like TCP/IP stack, difference between frames and packets, what constitutes Layer-1, etc. and the interviewer answered any questions I had, regarding day-to-day job.

    Face to face interview was centered around routing and switching technical questions with emphasis on BGP, OSPF, VLANs, packet flow through Layer 2 and Layer 3 devices. Also dived little bit into IPSec and GRE VPNs.

    It was a good experience overall.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sungard Availability Services.

    Interview

    Applied online. 2 weeks later I received an email from a senior recruiter. I had the call with him and I thought it went really well especially since the recruiter told me he wanted to move me up in the process and I went over the call by 30 minute talking personal things (back and forth.. not just about me) with him. I was told that I would hear an answer from him by the end of the week, "if not sooner". I was also told if I had other offers, I could email him to speed up the process. I was told this on Wednesday. Friday came and passed with no answer. I waited until next Wednesday and emailed the recruiter. No answer. The next Friday came and still no answer. I assumed he lied or they weren't interested in me.. so no offer.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    Applied online and the process took a week. We didn't proceed further on the phone once I told her I need sponsorship and unfortunately they don't offer sponsorship due to lack of funds. However, the HR lady was very nice on the phone and she will keep my resume in the data in case anything changes.
