    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    A technical interview is often made up of 5 to 6 technical interviews that last close to one hour and a lunch with the managers in the middle. Interviews are a combination of what is on the candidates resume and technical questions. Questions vary depending on the group and interviewers.

    Security Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at F5 Networks.

    Interview

    Found the job listing on the F5 website, and sent my resume via email. The next day I had a message in my inbox from a recruiter who set up an initial screen. She called me the next day and took about 15 minutes of the usual get to know you questions. She emailed me later that day with info on another call with the hiring manager. The HM called me and took about 20 minutes of get to know you and some initial technical questions. He then set me up with a senior technical member of the team for a technical interview. Interview lasted about an hour and was very technical, all over the phone. I later received an email stating that my knowledge wasn't deep enough and would not be going any further.

    I handed over my resume to them at a career fair which was held at school. After about a month, they e-mailed me to confirm my phone number. I scheduled an interview with them via phone call, and the interview was on campus. After that, all contacts were by e-mails.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at F5 Networks.

    Interview

    Interviews are generally split into several phases - phone calls with potential team members first, then on-site day long meetings with broader organization.

    My interview was non-existent, I was a direct hire as a result of a long relationship external to the organization.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I said I'd like X, they returned with how about X plus bonuses/stocks? I said yes.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at F5 Networks (Singapore (Singapore)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was lengthy and took 2 months. Complete process was frustrating and Tiring. HR are very lazy and I had to personally follow-up via email and call for status. They never reverted back. After one month process I was told that i am shortlisted and selected. Later HR neither called me or updated. After multiple email follow-up and calls HR told me that position does not exist & I applied for position which will come in near future. I will never re-apply in F5 again.
