    Hiring screener seemed nice, but very inexperienced and amateur at dealing with candidates. They left a voicemail without a last name and no email asking for screening times.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot of technical questions and 15 minutes in it was apparent their system was different from the one they advertised online. I politely ended the interview.   1 Answer

    Full Stack Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Riverbed Technology (Sunnyvale, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had a terrible terrible experience interviewing for their SteelHead appliances team. I had a phone screen scheduled for 2 pm with one of the team's engineer. Till 2.15 pm nobody called. When I called the recruiter she had to ping the interviewer to check his availability again. The recruiter then said that interviewer will call me at 2.30 pm. I again waited for the call... The interviewer finally called me at 2.56 pm but by that time I ran out of patience so I asked him why he could not inform me about the delay and made me wait for the whole hour. And then he simply started arguing with me saying that he said sorry (which I know he did not mean). During our conversation the interviewer was calling me "Dude" (as if I was his roommate or buddy). Seriously guys... grow up!
