I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Red Hat (Atlanta, GA (US)) in August 2017.
Red Hat recruiter contacted me to setup the interviews. I had 3 rounds of interviews. 1 with my hiring manager, 1 with my team lead, and 2 with my peers. In all 3 rounds there were a mixture of behavior questions, situational, and technical questions. But I would say it got more technical each round. The entire process took around 1 month and 2 weeks.
My only gripe about this process is to be patient. It is a slow process from start to finish. I felt ignored throughout the entire process, and was told that was very normal.
When you apply to the job, one of the questions asked is, what is your current salary? (probably best interest to not answer this question). They use that figure and other metrics based on experience and job type to provide you an offer. After receiving my initial offer, I decided to decline it.
Then it took an arduous 3 days to finally reach the recruiter by phone. (I assume it's their strategy to make you second guess on countering)
I discussed my counter offer and re-negotiated the terms. The recruiter then tried to make me excited about the existing offer, but I held firm. The conversation ended with the recruiter will need a day to go back and see what they can do about my counter but no guarantees or promises.
The following day after that conversation, I received a new offer with the terms within reason of what I asked for. Then I proceeded to accept the offer.
