    Escalation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bracknell, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Riverbed Technology (Bracknell, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Conducted an initial telephone interview which went well and then proceeded to a technical second interview. Second interview was a technical grilling, it was difficult because they wanted very specific details about the TCP connection process. I would say it would be very difficult for anyone to do well unless you have done deep packet analysis. They asked what seemed like simple questions but they wanted very specific information, for example how your PC connects to a web server. I don't think any typical network engineer would necessarily want to work in this role unless you enjoy looking at PCAPs/logs every day.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me what a TCP push flag does?   1 Answer
    • Explain the steps how your PC connects to a web server on the internet.   1 Answer
    • Some vague questions around troubleshooting and telnetting to an application on the destination port.   1 Answer
    • Explain how a Riverbed Steelhead works.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Riverbed Technology (Bracknell, England (UK)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Skills and personal project based, looking for a hands-on and pro-active Team player.
    Personality seemed crucial as taking over from a third-party outsourced renewal company and building a team process from the ground up wasn't going to be an easy task.

    General Business Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bracknell, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Riverbed Technology (Bracknell, England (UK)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    It was a generally logical process - discussion with recruiting, followed by telephone discussion with head of dept., followed by face-to-face discussion with head of department.

    The interviews with recruiting were generally good, but the interviews with the head of department were strange. The questions were generally weak and it constantly felt as if information had to be pushed rather than requested. Perhaps this is the style, which is OK, but it seemed peculiar. No difficult questions at all.

    My only criticism was the lack of communications throughout the process. Recruiting were not good at keeping me informed of the process, and in the end, just didn't bother calling to tell me that I was not selected for the position. I know that everybody is busy, but I feel that after taking the time to attend a F2F interview, it's rude not to get back to the candidate and give them feedback and conclusions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Riverbed Technology (Bracknell, England (UK)) in February 2011.

    Interview

    One of the most easiest interview I've ever come across which speaks for the poor job and the company itself. They pretend to be very technical and highly praise themselves looking for CCIE engineers. What a great bunch of jokers.
