    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brocade (San Jose, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter from Brocade to set up a telephonic interview. The interview was relatively easy and consisted of questions on sockets, VLANs, TCP/IP, ARP. Then they asked about my projects, some operating systems concepts like difference between thread and process. Finally he concluded the interview saying he thinks I am suitable for a software engineer in test and not a software developer. Key point being not a single coding question asked yet he arrives at that conclusion.

    Interview Questions

    • What are VLAN's and how do they work?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Brocade (San Jose, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone interview with the hiring manager, which consisted of only technical Qs. Later there was an onsite interview with written coding round and five 1:1 interviews. Interviewers were team members with varying experience. Most Qs were technical networking related. The coding round consisted of 3 programming Qs with 1.5 hrs. There was no review of code after the interview. All in all it was a pleasant experience. Very disappointing that I could not get an offer.
