    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at F5 Networks.

    Interview

    Connected with recruiter. He was very polite and helpful. I mentioned I only have experience in Angular 2 not earlier version. Hiring manager was impressed with background they moved forward with hackerrank test.

    That is where things feel apart. It was a timed challenge mix of of all Front end concepts. In angular section there were questions on angular 1.x version. Also questions where focusing more in syntax rather than concept. Ofcourse I wont have best answer as Angular 2 is written from scratch n vastly different from other version.

    I got a rejection saying my answers were not competitive enough. Ofcourse it wont be as questions were very specific on older methodology and I personally find it ridiculous. Questions like this can say a lot of things about how "rigid" team's mindset will be in assessing candidate and potentially on work.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at F5 Networks.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter, the interview process was well organized at the beginning. I completed an online assessment. Got follow up hiring manager interview. The feedback was good. I though I'm able to fly to onsite.

    After that, it became so bad organized, I didn't get any schedule info, they suddenly called me when I was outside saying that we have more tech questions to ask you and I need a computer. I thought the next might be coding round, so I made the schedule. On that interview day, the dirty thing is, they didn't ask me to do any coding test except for keeping asking me the exact same questions which already being ask by the hiring manager in the previous round.

    I was quite confused why other interviewers didn't make good coordination with their hiring manager. Keeping asking same questions to waste my time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at F5 Networks (Seattle, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview and was chosen to meet with the hiring manager in person at the F5 office. The office was easy to get to and parking was good. They validated when I was done which is a plus. The interview lasted an hour. The hiring manager said they would get back to me in a few days. When they didn't follow up, I sent a note to the HR contact. She never got back to me. I've written them off since I haven't heard back. It is common courtesy when coming in for an in-person interview to at least mention that it was the end of the line...but nothing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at F5 Networks (Liberty Lake, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The initial digital interview consisted of answering about ten questions that I had to record by video. The recordings were facilitated by a web service that allowed thirty seconds for me to read the question and contemplate an answer, then record the answer. Each response was given a fixed time to respond, thirty seconds for short answers up to about three minutes for longer responses depending on the question, and could not be redone or reviewed. The first question was a warm-up, to practice the format and presentation. I was allowed to review and rerecord the first response for practice. The whole process lasted about fifteen minutes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at F5 Networks in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in mid December 2016. And I was contacted by f5 recruiter in Mid January 2017. Recruiter setup interview with a Software Engineer. The interview lasted for about 20 - 30 minutes. I was asked to write a simple C program on collabedit.
    At the end of the interview, the interviewer gave me a positive feedback. He said I should expect to be called for on-site interview. After a couple of days, recruiter reaches out to me and asked me for my availability for on-site interview. After I sent him days/times, he replied saying that he made a mistake in his previous email and that he has not received a final decision yet for my interview from the hiring manager. It could be a genuine mistake but, imagine how you would feel to be told it was a mistake after you rescheduled other interviews for this one. I emailed the recruiter a few times and he told me there is no update. Then in late March 2017 I received a generic rejection email.
