    Phone interview initially with HR, followed by another with director of Engineering. Generic OS, C/C++ questions mostly basic.

    Two rounds of interviews, the first was mostly technical with about 5-6 half hour interviews with individual engineers and managers. Lots of technical questions, including detailed code questions.

    Second round was personality based with founders and upper management. No hard questions, just interested in scoping out personality.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Acme Packet in September 2010.

    Interview

    Was asked relatively arcane questions by a personality free engineer. The interview process is slated towards "fresh outs" with very little room for discussing the relevance of your background. For experienced engineers this is one company to avoid.

    Interview Questions

    • begin the technical portion to self rate your development skill set and the proceed with a technical quiz based off your response.   1 Answer
