    Total of 6 rounds. HR round, HM, then loop of 4 peers. Great experience overall - asked very relevant questions. 6 days after the loop, I found out that I did not get the position after a email follow up with recruiter.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at F5 in September 2020.

    Interview

    Received call from HR. Very very positive talk and he was quick to schedule the call.

    Had a video chat with hiring manager and I felt I was over qualified for this role because I am working as Principal in current role.

    All questions went well during the process. After the interview process, i tried to check the feedback and it took 2 weeks for them to respond. First the emails started bouncing from the HR person and i tried to reach to another HR person who confirmed that I am not selected for next round.

    Senior Campaign Strategist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at F5 (Seattle, WA) in September 2020.

    Interview

    The experience was really disappointing. I was referred by a current employee. The recruiter reached out quickly and wanted to schedule a meeting with the hiring manager and then never did. She also didn't return my two email inquiries - just went completely silent. I really think companies show themselves in the interview process - so I decided not to pursue f5 further.

    Senior Program Manager, Talent Management Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at F5 (Seattle, WA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I was contacted three times to apply for the role and had 3 informal conversations with the hiring manager. Once I decided to go for the role, I had a quick conversation with a recruiter. Then 4 loop interviews. From applying to final interview was 3 business days. They then took 5 weeks to respond. I followed up once weekly with the hiring manager and recruiter. Emails and text would go unreturned. When I would get responses they would say "next week". On week 5 I received an email declining to make an offer. Overall, the hiring manager should have considered if they would have offered me the role prior to encouraging me to apply. As a professional courtesy, considering there was an existing relationship, I thought deeply if I would take the role if given an offer before applying. It seemed disrespectful to go through the process if I didn't actually want the role. I expected the same courtesy in return.
