    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Qualys in November 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring manager spent 80% of the interview talking about himself, even going into details such as what he expects when you go on PTO. I didn't have much of an opportunity to speak and he didn't really ask me any interview questions. After the onsite interview, I sent several follow up emails and received no response. They could have at least sent me a rejection email out of courtesy rather than rudely flat out ignoring me, especially since I interviewed in person and completed an assignment.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Qualys (Redwood City, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Three phone interviews plus a day on-site. The on-site portion was a long day. Lost count of how many people interviewed me. Overall it went very well, but there was internal confusion on what the role actually was.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Qualys (Redwood City, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through Qualys' website, heard back from recruiting team the next day to schedule a call.

    Received the call the next day. I was expecting it to be phone screening but was actually from director of engineering. Bombed the interfview, ended with director telling me 'I am not going to cut it.' I actually enjoyed how straight forward the process was, simple and brutal.

    In my defense, they really caught me off guard with networking fundamental concept questions. So make sure you study for those other than the usual DS and algorithm stuff.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Qualys (Redwood City, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I declined to move forward in large part because the interviewer was extremely combative and unprofessional. I inquired about what I perceived as a high degree of turnover for the specific role I was interviewing for. Even after we mutually agreed this was not a good fit for me, this recruiter had the nerve to phone me back and argue with me about how there was not high turnover for the job I was interviewing for. She even stated "I don't want people saying we have high turnover when we don't." Thank you for making the decision not to move forward an easy one by being so unprofessional with me in the phone interview! Glad we did not waste each other's time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Qualys.

    Interview

    I went onsite for a technical round after a phone interview with the hiring manager. I have 10+ years of experience, should say the interview experience at Qualys was nothing but disappointing. There were 4 engineers in the room, plus one over phone. Most of the times they were not in sync as what to ask. They seemed disorganized and couple of interview panelists did not even greet me with polite gesture. The lady who was on phone, seemed to know nothing more than few linux commands but had tons of attitude. One of the interview panelist didn't even know how uname works and she was arguing with me for no reasons. In general, except the guy, rest had very limited knowledge.
