    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Red Hat (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Initial phone screen was perfunctory until I answered the "salary expectations" question. All of a sudden I was switched to someone who asked me a few technical questions and I started work the next week.

    Interview Questions

    • Almost everyone I know at this company is very intelligent and also somewhere between outgoing and aggressive so your answers should fit that profile.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate. I was very happy to work for Red Hat on any terms.
