    Sales Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at F5 Networks (Seattle, WA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with one of the hiring supervisors, followed by a series of in-person interviews, and a final call with the sales managers I would be supporting.

    The questions were almost entirely behavioral and "how do you ___" type questions, nothing extremely weird. Interviewers didn't come across as very experienced, but all were friendly. Confidence goes a long way in these.

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Front End GUI Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    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 an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at F5 Networks (Tel Aviv-Yafo (Israel)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was the most humiliating interview I've ever had. I interviewed two members of staff and before I said hello, they just asked me "tell us what you know". I think it was an interview just for the record.

    Marketing Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    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.
