    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mellanox.

    Interview

    This is the worst interview I ever had in my entire life. These people are so useless. Typical - Israeli company - they want you to work until you are dead. Their work schedule is 9-6 (without 1 hr lunch break). They are so much disorganized with their interview process that they don't know what are they doing. These people will make you to visit their office couple of times and meet multiple people. Don't get surprised if you get a last minute email/call (on the day of the interview) that they have rescheduled it for another day (while you are on the road to their location). They had HR interview me for multiple times when they are not even sure if they are able to offer that position to you (with the package you asked for).

    You will be surprised to see , when they ask a technical question on the interview - multiple people will have multiple answers for it and they discuss on the interview which one could be wrong and right.

    Israeli company - so you won't be surprised to see a lot of jews working there (some of them are smart but not all). Some of them might ask you a complete irrelevant question which has nothing to do with your position (just to prove that he knows better).

    From my experience - It was a complete waste of time.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mellanox (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Day -1 Met the hiring manager for about half an hour: Casual / Professional. No complaints.

    Day -2 Met another Marketing Director. He was late by 15 minutes and once we got on to it, was interrupted by personal calls on his mobile. Unpolished, unrefined and lacks manners in my professional observation. Wonder how people like him get hired in the first place :-).
    ========================================================================

    However, sorry to note the hiring manager was leading me on for a few weeks and in my final email follow-up 3 weeks after the interview process wished me "Good luck". No complaints since he was very professional.
