    Technical Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at F5 Networks in March 2017.

    Interview

    I got employee referral by networking in February and had two rounds of phone/video interviews in early March. The interview was less focused on algorithm/data structure questions than other technical interviews. They asked about my past experience and resume during the interview, and not much about writing code for algorithm questions. Two weeks later the HR called me to offer the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at F5 Networks (Seattle, WA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Was contacted by email initially by recruiter to set up a time to talk. Scheduled a meeting and discussed position and other possibilities I might fit the recs for. Set up a phone interview with group manager and had a 45 minute conversation again about the position and what I was desiring from the position. A few days later received another email requesting an in person panel interview. The panel consisted of 4 employees from director to manager. The interview was very friendly and the panel was enjoyable to talk to.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at F5 Networks.

    Interview

    Applied online and was requested a phone interview. If phone interview goes well, they will invite you on-site. You will have to bring yourself on-site. You will interview with 5 different people. The on-site interview is normal like every other company. They ask about resume and behavioral questions.

    Be prepared to feel rushed. It seemed like everyone was late and wanted to get out of the interview as quick as possible. If you don't get the job, don't expect to be contacted back. They don't send rejection letters even if you interviewed on-site.

    On a good note, they provide you with a lunch.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    The first phase was a phone interview with a tech person. The person on the phone was pretty aggressive/curt. I got the feeling that the working environment would be unnecessarily stressful because of the atmosphere. They were going to bring me on-site for more testing, but I opted out of the interview process after that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at F5 Networks (Seattle, WA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted via consulting recruiter and had an interview scheduled within 24 hours for a week out. Reception was aware of my interview, easy checkin process and was offered refreshment and told where facilities were located. Interviewer was on time and had a room reserved, also offered refreshments etc. Overall good rapport and a good interview. Initiated my own follow up as communication seemed a bit confusing due to the 3rd party involvement. I didn't receive an offer for this role due to some technical skill alignment but hope to be kept in mind for future opportunities.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Everything was digital, which was really awkward. Yes it's nice to have 30 seconds to think about your responses, but it's just really informal and shows you don't have time enough for employees from the beginning. It also took them weeks to get back to me and I haven't heard anything back from them, even after emailing them, for over a month. I'm sure their a great company to work for, but I wasn't very impressed by their interviewing process.

    Interview Questions

    • They have some very technical questions that definitely show whether or not you know networking.   Answer Question
