Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at F5 Networks (Seattle, WA).

Interview

Applied via a reference. Normal process, online app, phone screen, in person interview. Strong showing by f5 nice offices, smart people. Overall very professional approach and comportment. It seemed as if there was some confusion about who I was to see, and what types of questions they were going to ask. Many folks asked the same questions over and over. I liked the folks I met. Seemed stressed but focused.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at F5 Networks (Seattle, WA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two parts. One part team technical interview and second part high level though process one on one style. Overall I enjoyed the interview sessions. The only pain factor was that they were setup with one day’s notice, this made it kind of difficult to schedule around my previous employer.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at F5 Networks (London, England (UK)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview arranged which lasted about 30 minutes. Lots of fairly in depth questions on TCP/IP, HTTP, SSL, UNIX etc. Some on F5 workings, specifically load balancing, what different terminology meant. Needed to clarify some things but the interviewer was quite fair and noted things you were not working with currently. Found it challenging but quite interesting.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at F5 Networks in January 2012.

    Interview

    I applied for the role of a Network Support Engineer with F5 Networks in Surrey, UK. I got a reply from the HR Lead person within minutes of applying asking for a convenient time for a telcom interview as well as a short technical 'assessment'. I responded with a time range asking that they pick an appropriate time and communicate same back to me. The appointment was shortly confirmed for the the next week and I was quite excited at the opportunity to interview.
    On the day of the phone interview, I took out time to go over the advertised role and my CV, hoping that I'd be prepared enough. That was very poor judgment on my part!
    Preliminary questions went very well. They seemed to have on offer my dream role and I was quite pleased with that. Then came the technical assessment part of the interview. To be honest, although I have some 8 years plus experience with IT systems, I was quite taken aback with how much I had lost touch with the basics. Questions asked were grouped according to the following topics:
    i. Layer 2 (OSI)
    ii. Layer3,
    iii. Layer 4
    iv. UNIX/Linux
    v. DNS
