    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Akamai (Santa Clara, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Manager and HR were so unprofessional. HR told that the manager and team liked me but they were not sure of hiring me because I didnt have QA experience(That was an entry level position). If they weren't sure why put me on "hold" for 4 weeks, a reject the following week would have better so much better. Besides this nonsense finally (after 4 weeks) I got a reject saying I was technically so good that they couldn't reject me but they were very particular about experience (for an entry level position). It was such a time waste interviewing with a group of unprofessional Indians.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Akamai in August 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, got the email for the phone screening from the recruiter, did the screening with the recruiter (basic networking and linux questions). Got to the second round of phone interview and suddenly a shock. I applied for SDET position and interviewed with the recruiter for that position as it was with C/C++ and got the email for the 2nd interview for QA test engineer with Perl scripting.
    Interviewer was talking in a very low pitch voice that I couldn't figure out what he was asking at one go. Basic networking questions and two analytical thinking which is no where close to what the company does. I mean why do you need to ask those insane questions if all you are gonna do is technical things. Got one right and got one wrong!
    I wouldn't suggest this company to a friend!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Akamai (Cambridge, MA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    First one phone screening interview like basic networking and perl questions and then one technical interview over phone for 30 to 40 minutes duration. The next day they asked me to come for onsite interview and it is like 4 rounds of technical and each one is 45 minutes longer. This position requires knowledge in Perl, Base Scripting, Linux and Networking. Asked some white board scripting,reg exp, list and functions in perl. Overall its a very good interview. I enjoyed thoroughly.
