SRE Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoneton, OH (US)
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Phoneton, OH (US)) in November 2016.

Interview

First phone interview is about behaviors and some "common senses" of programming.

Next came phone interview is to write script dealing with log files. Regex and file manipulation required.

Interviewer is not quite interested in communicating with me, and interrupted me before I finish my scripts. I know I was not writing the optimal solution though.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at LinkedIn (San Francisco, CA (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    telephone screen, telephone interviews, on-site interview day. Very communicative recruiters. Snappy process. Company culture seems pretty typical for tech industry, but more laid back than some of those crazy startups

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at LinkedIn.

    Interview

    One of the best interview experiences I've had. Everyone that interviewed me was super professional, patient, and knowledgable.

    I went through an initial technical via the recruiter that found me on LinkedIn, then a programming exercise, then another phone technical about several system level scenarios. Lastly, I was asked to come for a personal one-on-one.

    After every interview, the recruiter called me back right away to let me know how I did.

    Though I got another offer from another company before the last interview, I had a wonderful experience through the entire process. I would have accepted an offer, if given.

    SRE Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Sunnyvale, CA (US)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Got an interview at Sunnyvale, CA. Well organized, consisted of 6 different modules: Recruiter Meeting, Incident Response and Management, Service Design and Architecture, Code Review and Analysis, Host Manager, Live Troubleshooting.

    I failed miserably on all 6 and needless to say no offer (plus I got a cool down period of 3 years before I can apply to LinkedIn again).

    Interview Questions

    • During the Live Troubleshooting segment I was tasked with fixing the broken Apache HTTPD. After spending an half an hour trying to get to the problem I been told that the server must had an internal problem that I failed to pinpoint.   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at LinkedIn (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    The process took almost 6 months. A lot of interviews. Long delays in providing feedback. Few times the interview was cancelled at the very last minute due to unknown reasons. Some of the interviewers are not very professional, apparently lacking experience, struggling formulating questions.
