    Systems Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Palo Alto Networks.

    Interview

    Telephone interview with their internal recruiter who can be quite arrogant. Phone call with the director and then panel interview with 15 min presentation, technical questions and other general questions. 1.5 hour in total. Felt like a graduate style interview and not for a senior/consultant role. Stick to your time for presentation- aim for 10/12 mins to allow for questions.
    Didn’t get asked about the company, or the competition. Recruiter said they are a network company not a security company. No competency based questions.

    Interview Questions

    • OSI model and what happens at each layer? Explain DHCP process?   Answer Question
    • What happens when you switch your PC on, what’s the process? What happens when you type url in your browser? Explain DNS process?   Answer Question
