    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Juniper Networks (Columbus, OH) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The process starts with update CV which needs to be thought out and future career aspirations in mind, not only past achievements. The interview process is handled by multiple interviewers which are would-be peers, co-workers, and managers. Everything from technical problem solving to life challenges with direct reports, conflict resolution and personal preference is asked. It can be a 2-4 month process and is very thorough.

    Interview

    Interviewer was not interested in the process, was slow in asking questions, and did not engage well during the interview. Bad Experience overall.
    The questions were straightforward, but I didn't feel like the interviewer was interested, and this reduced my interest in giving answers drastically (up to a point where I just wanted it to get over)

    Interview

    Found the role on LinkedIn. Standard online application process. Recruiter reached out to me within a few days of applying. First call with Juniper recruiter was smooth. She asked the standard job qualification questions. I was asked to describe my work experience and background. The recruiter was very upbeat and a pleasure to speak with. Shortly after the initial call I received an email asking for my availability to speak with the hiring manager. That call went smoothly. I was then invited to come into the office to meet with the hiring manager and two people from the team. Within a few weeks Juniper had conducted reference checks and an offer was made.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening for 30 minutes, consisting questions on resume.
    Onsite interview consisted of 5 rounds. Two interviewers asked questions relevant to the position and from my resume. 1 round was coding interview where I was asked to code, compile and execute 2 questions on a laptop in 30 minutes. Other two rounds were with interviewers who were full of ego. One interviewer was full of himself and just said "no you are wrong" to every sentence I spoke. He always told the opposite of what I said, though my statements were technically correct.

    Senior Big Data Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Juniper Networks (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    The process was pretty much quick starting with a phone screen of 30 mins and then followed by 3 hour on site.

    The on-site is always restricted to 3 hours at Juniper unlike other companies which makes it a good experience. The on-site interview was more of a discussion involving one round of coding with the Manager.

    The technical rounds are not at all complex and give a good idea about the role. Very important to have a good idea bout the role before you go in for the interview.
