Question 3 of 28
What do you consider to be a good litmus test for when you would automate a test process for a new system versus testing manually?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
As your role with F5 Networks will look to help further their automate testing processes for new systems, you will need to have a good sense for when automation makes sense and when it does not. Reiterate your sense for this to your interviewer by sticking to the high level response that repetitive tasks, as are common with large software companies, are prime candidates for automation whereas one time test cases are not.

Question 4 of 28
Give an example of a time that you used a universal design practice in your work as a UI or UX designer. Why was it important to do this?

How to Answer
In the technology, software and mobile app fields today, accessibility is a huge topic. As a designer with F5 Networks, you will be expected to help create products that are as accessible as possible to as many end users as possible. In this two part question, talk about why you feel that universal design is important in the work that you will be doing with F5 Networks and then really sell your ability to do this by giving an example of a time you used a universal design in your previous work.

Question 5 of 28
Talk about a time when things didn't go as planned on the job. What was the situation and what allowed your to persevere in that situation?

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
