    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Red Hat (Bracknell, England) in April 2014.

    Interview

    -Once they showed interest, they emailed and 2 weeks went by before I obtained the first response. 2 more weeks went by before we could set up a meeting.
    -After the face to face interview, during I was asked to wait in a tiny room for interviewers (Manager, Talent Acquisition and then his most senior recruiter) to show up during 10-20 minute intervals, at one point waiting by a "lift"; I I was asked to prepare a -"Presentation" detailing my whole strategy and tips i developed during my 10 years of experience, this was necessary to pass on to the "nest stage" as it was going to be presented to the "Director of Talent Acquisition"
    -I delivered a full tailored presentation and there was silence, no response whatsoever after 3 weeks.
    -Now, almost a year after I interviewed for the job, the ad is still up, my impression is they are not really hiring, they are obtaining market data from interviewees!
    -Finally i received a reply asking if I could take a phone call. By that time I decided not to pursue further.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were around providing super specific examples of how you would solve very particular "problem scenarios". It felt like they were having these problems themselves at the moment and that they browsing for ideas on how to solve them themselves! rather than actually hiring.   Answer Question
