    Principal Interaction Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I applied and immediately was contacted by a recruiter to set up a Zoom call. We spoke, told me they would follow up upon sharing details with the hiring manager, never heard back. Contacted twice throughout the course of 3 weeks, not a word. Very unprofessional. A point of interest, their interaction designer sits in the marketing org vs your product or eng. Something to take note...

    The Red Hat interview process was bizarre to say the least. I never did figure out why the didn't extend me an offer, but so it goes. I hope they found the right person!

    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Red Hat (Raleigh, NC (US)) in September 2020.

    Interview

    I was referred via the Ambassador Referral program. I was told by my manager that there were several Technical Writer positions available. During the initial phone screen the recruiter did not seem enthused and unprepared. He then told me that someone else had been chosen for the first opening. I thought that was the end of my interview opportunities at Red Hat.

    Then, a week later he contacted me again about another TW position. I had a 30 minute interview with the hiring manager who was very professional and likable. There was also a writing assessment which was not as intimidating as I had imagined. Basically, multiple choice grammar and clarity questions and rewriting several product descriptions. Within an hour after speaking with her, a different recruiter contacted me about the next steps in the interview process. The next interview was a 2 hour interview with 4 team members. Many of the questions were competency based questions. So, look those up online and be prepared to give examples from previous jobs. A week after interview 3 I received a job offer.

    Senior Technical Writer/Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Red Hat in August 2020.

    Interview

    1) Referred to several technical writing positions

    2) Phone screen

    3) Told that am considered for the senior level tech writing positions only. I was also told that a manager had a lot of enthusiasm towards my application.

    4) Interview with a hiring manager who asked the exact same questions as the phone screener. When I went to elaborate my answers, I was told that it wasn't necessary to elaborate for some reason. The hiring manager then explained the team's structure. When I asked some follow up questions about the team's structure, the manager kept stressing that there were lots of management changes going on. I was told that there was lots of uncertainty apparently.

    5) Given an old take home assignment. There was a huge bug with the product that I was told to write about, so I diagnosed potential issues and had some solutions at the ready.

    6) Ghosted.

    After seeing everywhere that they were still recruiting for the position, I assumed I was out of the running. I applied to another position 3 months later, but I was told I was still in the running for the senior technical writing position. I withdrew.
