I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Red Hat in November 2011.Interview Details
I applied through seek.com.au for Australia. The corporate recruiter contacted me, explained me company culture, job requirements, my eligibility to work in Australia.
Next it was a technical telephone interview. A senior technical resource interviewed me and ask relevant questions related to Java and JBoss.
Next I was asked for a face-to-face interview. I was interviewed at their Mountain View, California office. There were three interviews, one in person, two over conference call (since the job was in Australia). Their main focus is more towards determining whether I will be a good fit in Red Hat's company culture, hence the questions were not technical in nature, rather it focused on soft skills (you need to describe how you fit in Red Hat's core values, and relate your experience with the core values).Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsI was offered market salary applicable in Brisbane market for a senior resource. I asked for perks like medicals etc. but these weren't covered by Australia office. By law, 9% was added by employer to Superannuation which was in addition of base salary.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
- No difficult or unexpected question that I recall. Be prepared to expect lot of questions on how you will fit in Red Hat's core values. Answer Question
