    Initial phone interview consisted of simple algorithm based questions. Onsite interview consisted of 6 rounds each round dealt with different areas of software engineering. 1st and 2nd round will be programming. They will give a scenario of a network problem and ask to trouble shoot. (say the system is unable to access this URL, what is the prob? You will have to ask them questions and narrow down the problem.) Then other rounds involve testing in Operating systems concepts, giving test cases for a problem. Overall the interviewers will be friendly. The interviewers took for lunch after 3 rounds and then continued with the process after interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Riverbed Technology (San Francisco, CA) in June 2008.

    Interview

    Initially met them at the career fair at school. Talking to the person it was evident that they were there just for the heck of it and didn't have any actual jobs. After a week I was called in for a phone interview and they asked really basic questions about multi-processing which I correctly answered, but never heard from them again. When tried getting back to the recruiter, never got a reply. They should have had atleast the decency to reply.
