Getting an Interview
Network Engineer Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Virtela Technology Services in April 2014.
Interview Details – The hiring process includes two rounds. First was a phone discussion followed by a technical interview. Hiring process was quick and I got my result in a day but the offer letter took 2 weeks.
Interview Question – They ask everything about the layer 2 and layer 3 concepts. Be strong in switching concepts, BGP, NAT, VLAN, VTP, OSPF, MPLS, IPsec tunnels and subnetting. Also know your resume well as they will ask everything from it.
They asked many questions about the area concept of ospf, NAT, VTP and VLAN. I was also given an IP address and was asked to find if it was a usable IP . You can crack the interview if you know your concepts well. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Network Engineer Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I interviewed at Virtela Technology Services in March 2014.
Interview Details – Very pleasant interview process. It was a direct on-site interview. I had 4 rounds of one-on-one interviews, with 3 senior managers, and the CTO. The 3 senior managers were extremely polite. The question that stood out to from Round 1 was "What do you understand of the industry 5 years from now?"
Round 2 was supposed to be very technical, I was told, but it was almost surprisingly simple- a couple of very basic questions on STP, and one on the difference between some standard routing protocols. The next round was again not very technical at all- I was just asked to explain the projects on my resume. The final round was with the CTO, which, to me, was not a pleasant experience. He was aloof, did not shake hands and just walked out the door abruptly when he thought we were done!
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. You get great experience, less-than-satisfactory pay.

Very Difficult Interview
Any Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Virtela Technology Services.
Interview Details – Be prepared to be interviewed by at least 4 people, with unorganized spaces of miscommunication. Be prepared to clear your schedule for the day and bring something to read.
Interview Question – All interviews go through CEO who will grill you. Some interviewing may take place on Skype and not limited to employees from India that might be difficult to comprehend, due to the language barrier. Upper management will be in their phone durning your interview, checking/responding to emails/text. Not the most professional interview process. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate slightly, but they are very right with their purse strings. My advice, go in with as high as a salary as possible as you won't see an increase any time soon.
