    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Palo Alto Networks (Santa Clara, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter sent me message through LinkedIn and after replying he called in and asked some general questions and some simple network question, he was impressed by my quick answers, one week later a manager called me and again asked some basic questions about where I am working now and why I'm willing to leave and again some simple technical questions, 1 week later they scheduled 3 rounds interviews

    Interview Questions

    • 2 technicals and 1 with managers, I answered most of the technical questions, more scenario base and almost I solved them with right approaches as all interviewers looked satisfied by my responses and then managers asked me some, general questions about what do you yourself in next 5 years, why this company and so on, but after 1 day they responded that we found another candidate that matches more with this position (they usually contacted me 2-3 days after each interview) but it seems it was just an excuse and all the process was for hiring someone elses because they canceled scheduled onsite interview of another colleague so they just held mine because they needed enough interviews   Answer Question

    Very well done. This was one of the most comfortable interviews I have had. Everyone was friendly and put me at ease. They asked relevant technical questions and the multiple interviews flowed seamlessly. They did not ask any outlandish questions like what would be your most favorite vacation.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Palo Alto Networks (Santa Clara, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Very organized with full itinerary. Arrived at new Santa Clara campus and got checked in. The HR reply led me to a sixth floor conference room where I was scheduled to meet 5 different people. The second person had a personal issue to tend to so instead I got a nice campus tour. Great campus! The next person was 20min late, but I guess that happens sometimes. Overall it was very professional and j had a good time
