    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Red Hat (Boston, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    This job was through an employee referral where you apply at a completely separate website for. The HR person contacted me within a week of applying for the job. It was a short 30 minute conversation to make sure the candidate matched the high level expectations for the job. After that, you do a Hackerrank online technical assessment. The technical material varies depending on the job function or technology you're applying for. After that, the HR person reaches out to you again for a meeting with the hiring manager and his team. Generally a 4 hour onsite interview process. If you're in the northeast, they'll most likley send you to NYC. After that, I didn't hear anything back from the company. My reference there had mentioned that in a year end 2016 meeting. the company mentioned they over hired by 1000 or so employees, so they were halting any new on boarding.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Red Hat.

    Interview

    I got into it though university. I just had to hand in my resume and talk to the person representing Red Hat and they flew me into headquarters - that was an awesome experience. Really friendly people and awesome crowd. I was the only girl there as a candidate, I believe. I didn't see any females really high up in the company. I guess that gave me an advantage?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Red Hat (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Easy standard interviews but recruiter has poor communication skills. The interviewers all asked the normal, expected questions related to the position. I am extremely disappointed in how the recruiter handled the process though and by her poor communication.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Red Hat (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    Behavioral based. Focus on job skills and problem solving will vary. Heavy focus on culture fit, which will also vary by department. Some are very well trained and follow the standard interview process. Some do not. Expect at least several interviews from calls with recruiter to several group and or individual interviews. May take some time. Be patient through-out the process.

    Interview Questions

    • They will ask about past experiences related to job requirements, problem solving scenarios, what you know about open source and the company history, and various scenarios where you demonstrate resolution of conflict, worked through job related challenges, etc. Be honest and transparent.   1 Answer

    Platform Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Red Hat (San Diego, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Really pretty straightforward. Talked to a recruiter, took their online Hackerank test, phone screen, in-person interview. It only took as long as it did for me because of me... anyone who can be available for each step could easily finish the process in two weeks. It's clear that everyone I talked to loves working at Red Hat. Everyone should be aware that a lot of the consulting jobs require a lot of travel.
