    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Extreme Networks (Morrisville, NC).

    Interview

    Interviewed by senior managers/engineers and a junior engineer. Basically asked general resume-related questions along with some technical coding-type questions (C language and Linux) to make sure you have your basics right. Wasn't able to answer all of them correctly but they were perceptive enough to see that I still knew my stuff well. I was also asked a few career related questions. I guess they were trying to see how likely I was to take the job and stay in it if offered. They prefer only local candidates.
    The recruiter called me the same day with feedback on the interview.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Extreme Networks (Raleigh, NC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Started with usual greeting. The interview was mostly on Basic technical questions based on your resume skills. It was almost a 20 minute interview. Most of the questions were related to C, and minimum questions on Networking concepts. If a programming language is your forte, it shouldn't be very difficult.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Extreme Networks (Raleigh, NC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    2 very casual meetings at Beer:30 (something Extreme does on Friday afternoons) with the Director of Software Engineering where he introduced me to the team. Once I was interested in pursuing the position, a more formal interview was setup. I interviewed with 2 software engineering managers and 1 principle software engineer. They generally asked me about my resume experience and some general computer science questions - link lists, arrays, threading, mutexes, data structures.

    Negotiation

    I gave them a salary target. Extreme's offer was just below the target. I didn't negotiate further.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Extreme Networks (Saint Petersburg, FL).

    Interview

    Interviews all conducted virtually phone and video conferencing. Multiple interviews with recruiter, HR, peers and stakeholders including manager x 2. Very open and transparent through the process with questions about stock price and executive changeover. Felt collaborative. Background check was slow but that is outsourced by Extreme. Everything else moved at an expected pace.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Recruiter did the negotiation. Was more of a take it or leave it.

    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Extreme Networks (Salem, NH).

    Interview

    This was probably one of the lengthiest interviews I've ever had. It started with an initial phone screen with HR. The conversation went so well I was set up for phone interviews with both the Sales Development Manager and the Marketing Operations Manager. Both conversations went very well and they invited me into the office to interview with both managers in person as well as other members of the team. Again, nailed it. I was very confident that I was going to get an offer. They invited me back one last time for a shadow interview in which I essentially just sat with members of the team and listened to them make some calls and log information into their CRM. I was told while leaving that they would reach out to me the following day with next steps. That call never came. I gave it another few days and finally reached out in frustration to the HR contact. He informed me that they had decided to move forward with another candidate but they would likely have more openings in the future. About a week later the same SDR position was posted to LinkedIn's job board. If they didn't want to move forward why waste my time and invite me back for the shadow interview? Furthermore, why set the expectation that I'll be notified the next day one way or another and then never follow up?
