- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Palo Alto Networks.Interview Details
After a couple emails from the recruiter wanting (do you have X?) to confirm whether I had the technical qualifications for the position, they scheduled a phone interview (with the recruiter). The interview consisted of nothing but about 20 technical questions they read from a sheet. The recruiter didn't have any technical knowledge on the topics so elaboration or anything other than what was written down was fruitless. No other background questions, nothing about what I'd done, or how I work, etc. After passing this interview, I was scheduled to speak with the person who formerly held the position and would be this positions boss.
The second interviewer didn't call at the scheduled time. An hour later they texted (not a call, a text!) me apologizing profusely and we agreed to reschedule another time.
The next day I got an email from the recruiter saying that they offered the position to another person that day and that I wasn't being considered anymore.
It's fine that I may not have been the best fit for the position but this experience reflects very poorly on Palo Alto Networks' hiring process and staff. I believe they should at the very least finish interviewing those who they have already scheduled before offering anything. That, combined with the missed meeting, how it was handled, and its timing are pretty disrespectful. Maybe I would have been happy as an employee but after this experience I am happy never knowing.Interview Questions
