    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Red Hat (Raleigh, NC (US)).

    Interview

    HR mentioned, during the initial fielding call, that the hiring process would take a little over 6 weeks.

    Initial fielding call to discuss soft-skills and vet

    Second call is detailed, and with someone from the department in question.

    Third call, prior to onsite interview, is with HR.

    The company is very transparent about processes; and guides you along during the process to ensure that you understand how you will be evaluated.

    I would suggest reading a book on CBBI, and watching a few videos. You should also make a matrix of interesting stories and use cases from your career that you and pull from.

    Everyone who works at the company seems thrilled to be there. If you are a true believer in open source, and also have proclivities towards the business end, then this is the place for you.

    Middleware Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA (US)

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Red Hat (Sunnyvale, CA (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I was initially contact by a Red Hat recruiter from the Raleigh, NC Offer via LinkedIn on January 23rd. The job sounded interesting and after doing some research I agreed to an initial phone screen. That went well and recruiter sent me a link to do a online test via hackerrank.com.

    I completed the test a few days later and inform the recruiter. She said that I passed and would speak with a Red Hat consultant as the next step in the process. The consultant asked me some basic technical questions and I had a chance to ask some questions about position.

    I assumed that went well because two days later I got a call from their interview coordinator to come up to Sunnyvale for a face to face. I was literally rushed up for that interview. I got contacted on Wednesday and without any consideration for my schedule was "told" to be in Sunnyvale on Friday! On top of that I had to prepare for a 20 minute live presentation on something I had implemented in the past. My initial reaction was to push back and reschedule for the following week. But I decided to push through and do the interview on Friday because they seem really interested in me.

    Arrived at the interview on Friday and meet with a few people in the Sunnyvale office. I was asked lots of behavioral questions like most people has mention. I personally feel the interview went well and I had a good rapport with everyone. I put on a really great presentation and left the interview feeling certain I was going to get an offer within a week.

    Fast forward one month later and I still have not heard anything from Red Hat so I assume I didn't get the job. As one other reviewer said they went "radio silent"! That was true in my case as well. After rushing me to the interview they haven't had the decency to send me a rejection email. I even contacted the recruiter two weeks after the last interview and she responded to my email and said she would check and get back with me but she never did. So I'm not going to chase this anymore. Its just frustrating to put so much effort into an interview and not get any feedback. The only good think is that Red Hat reimbursed me for my travel expenses and I got to visit Silicone Valley.

    This is probably for the best because I was never 100% sure I could handle the amount of travel required for that position.
