    Senior IBX Network Technician IV Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Equinix (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    They lied on the interview process and said that job entails more technical knowledge with logging into equipment and things in this nature. But very lengthy process took 3 months to get hired.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Equinix in April 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my application on line. Within a few days, I was asked to complete a digital interview through HireVue. It is a nerve-racking process. After 5 days, I received a generic form letter telling me the position had been filled by someone else.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Equinix in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very very awkward company and it's hiring process.

    Got an email thanking me for my time giving an interview, without having given any.
    In another case, a recruiter thanks me for my time and scheduling a HireVue interview, without having bothered to call to schedule and request setup.
    Only in one case, I got a call from a recruiter to schedule a HireView. And was told many Fortune companies do that, I worked in a few and have interviewed in many, and no they don't. It's fine you have this process, but don't sell it by falsehoods.

    Needless to say, if the hiring manager cannot be bothered to review and engage, I will not have time for you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Equinix (San Francisco, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was asked to submit an interview using HireVue, an app that asks questions specific to the position and records your responses. Not being a YouTube star, I found the process totally unnerving and decided not to submit my interview.

    Sales Support Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Equinix (Ashburn, VA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    A few phone interviews, a video where you recorded yourself answering questions they provided and then an almost 3 hour in-person interview with 5 people. It was casual, but they all had a prepared list. There was barely any time, if any at all, to ask any questions of the interviewers. I came away having asked hardly anything.

    One of the most pleasant interview experiences I've ever had. Essentially if you have the right experience and credentials and are a good fit for the role this will be a smooth ride.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Equinix (Sunnyvale, CA) in July 2016.

They asked questions about my skills mentioned in resume and few networking scenario questions.
