    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Riverbed Technology (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Met them through a job fair originally in the Fall (late October), was immediately offered an interview the next day which involved a quick technical question and general resume overview.

    Did not hear back from until a month later, after emailing them, stating due to waiting for budget confirmation, they cannot guarantee any positions. It was not until March they emailed me back to set up an technical interview. On the day of the phone technical interview, they never called. Had to resechedule; never cited a reason why they never did, but I can only assume they forgot. The rescheduled phone interview went through and they said I would hear back within the end of the week. I never heard back until I emailed them back almost 2 weeks later, essentially telling me I did not get the position

I went onsite for about 6 hours to meet the team, do some technical interviews, etc. Then there were two more "getting to know you" conversations on the phone with team members. Everyone was very nice and helpful and it seems like a great place to work.
