    Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at F5 Networks (London, England) in September 2015.


    Phone interview arranged which lasted about 30 minutes.

Needed to clarify some things but the interviewer was quite fair and noted things you were not working with currently. Found it challenging but quite interesting.
