Senior Technical Support Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Brno (Czech Republic)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Red Hat (Brno (Czech Republic)) in January 2013.

Interview

Quick, interviewer was very friendly and relaxed the whole process. The process contained 2 calls from technicians which was great. usually they ask you about technical questions, they asked me what I know and what I was working with last months. The face to face interview was relaxed, wish other companies have the same approach. The recruiters and interviewer are very friendly. Don't need to be stressed.

    Senior Technical Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brisbane (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Red Hat (Brisbane (Australia)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I applied through seek.com.au for Australia. The corporate recruiter contacted me, explained me company culture, job requirements, my eligibility to work in Australia.

    Next it was a technical telephone interview. A senior technical resource interviewed me and ask relevant questions related to Java and JBoss.

    Next I was asked for a face-to-face interview. I was interviewed at their Mountain View, California office. There were three interviews, one in person, two over conference call (since the job was in Australia). Their main focus is more towards determining whether I will be a good fit in Red Hat's company culture, hence the questions were not technical in nature, rather it focused on soft skills (you need to describe how you fit in Red Hat's core values, and relate your experience with the core values).

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult or unexpected question that I recall. Be prepared to expect lot of questions on how you will fit in Red Hat's core values.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was offered market salary applicable in Brisbane market for a senior resource. I asked for perks like medicals etc. but these weren't covered by Australia office. By law, 9% was added by employer to Superannuation which was in addition of base salary.
