    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Palo Alto Networks in January 2016.

    Interview

    2 phone screens followed by an onsite interview. Fairly technical. The phone screens are nice. Even the senior employees such as VP interview the candidate on site. Yes, even VPs ask technical questions and programming questions! The onsite process is pretty gruelling
