    QA Position Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Arbor Networks (Ann Arbor, MI) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I had a friend that worked there. He suggested I try for a job there. The referral got me in the door.

    The interview was very long. I spent 6 hours (plus lunch with the team) being interviewed by teams of 2 to 3 people at a time about my knowledge of QA processes and networking technology. People were friendly enough, but it was a very grueling day.

    There were two positions open, and I was told I would get a call in a week or two. After two weeks I called back and they said the position was still open, I was still being considered and they would get back to me. After a month I called again and they said they still hadn't decided, even apologized for not having made a decision yet. At that point I told them to cross me off their list as it didn't seem there was a serious offer coming, and for some reason they just didn't want to turn me down.

    My friend later told me they never actually hired anyone for either of the two open spots.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of questions about networking and routing protocols. Some as simple as picking a valid IP address from a list, some as hard as diagnosing a routing issue in a described network setup.   Answer Question

    NA Channel Sales Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burlington, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Arbor Networks (Burlington, MA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 6 individuals that appeared to not understand the job I was applying for. They did not prepare themselves for the interview process and did not understand what was required by myself for the opening. They were disconnected with the industry as a whole and came off very unprofessional. If I received the "nod" I would not have taken the job.

    Interview

    I went there to get some interviewing experience. They seem to have a very rigid, full day interviewing procedure. At most stages there are two interviewers asking questions in tandem. One odd thing was that there was no interviewer of international background, which I found quite odd for a tech company located in Massachusetts.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Arbor Networks (Michigan Ctr, MI) in January 2010.

    Interview

    i got a call from the recruiter. She asked very basic questions about networking like tcp/ip and RIP and OSPF and a very definations about software testing. This lasted about 20 mins. She told me that i should expect a call from the team manager in about a week. She scheduled an appointment for next week. The interview was taken over the phone by two people. One QA specialist and one Network Specialist. They concentrated more on my resume. The projects i had done earlier. I was asked a lot of RIP and OSPF and again just the basic definations in QA. They asked me about LINIX shell scripting which i dont know. It lasted about 40mins. They were supposed to call back for the on-site. But did not. whenever i follow up they say that they are still considering me as a potential candidate for the next round but have not decided yet. Its been 45 days and still haven't heard from them.
