    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at A10 Networks (San Jose, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First was an initial phone screening with HR. It was a pleasant interview as he was very friendly, and was intrigued by the prior experience I had on my resume. I thought it went great, and he thought the same as well, so it ended with us scheduling my onsite interview for the following week. Unfortunately this is where things took a heavy turn. A week passed with no confirmation about the next round. I contacted HR regarding my onsite interview and was told the hiring manager wanted to wait 3 weeks before moving on with this position. Oddly enough, during the three week wait, I actually found out a colleague of mine actually had an onsite inteview for the same position... so I knew something fishy was going on.

    After 3 weeks, I contacted HR again, and was told the position was already filled, before I even got the chance to have my interview. I was told that someone on the hiring manager's team recommended someone, and they got to have a first crack at it, thus getting the offer, before anyone without a recommendation had a chance.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at A10 Networks (San Jose, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    There were two rounds in total. The first round was a resume review round and the second was a technical round. They stressed on C++ more than any other language. Knowing Boost library and STL would help a lot, as questions were asked specifically from these two topics.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at A10 Networks.

    Interview

    It was disastrous. I applied for Web Development Internship with my Resume Mentioning my languages to be Python, Java but still my first interview was heavily on Operating Systems with most of questions being asked in C. I was rejected and the Interviewer was very rude. I then sent a mail to their College Relations notifying them of this. They gave me another chance interviewing with the web development team. I still didn't get the offer but I didn't enjoy the Interview experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Lowest Common Ancestor stupid version. When 'b' is a child of 'a', and 'c' is a child of 'b'. By definition Lowest Common Ancestor for 'b', 'c' comes out to be 'b' but the interviewer asked me to return 'a' in this case. It was confusing during the process.   Answer Question
