    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NetApp (Raleigh, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was amazing! It was fast, and the HR people were really nice and considerate. I had two phone interviews - one with the HR guy, and one with the senior architect from the group I was being interviewed for. Following that, I had three an on-site inteyrviews. The first one with the senior architect I talked to, then a software engineer, and then the third one was with a current Technical Marketing Engineer. They were all really nice people, and the questions were most behavioral and it felt more like having a tech-focused conversation than a real interview. I was even shown around the office at the end of my last interview.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at NetApp.

    Interview

    Phone call followed by onsite. Nothing interesting. They asked questions that are not related to the job position. Its easy to get a job here, no surprises. In a stream of integers from 1 to n, only one number will be repeated. How can you tell what that number is?

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at NetApp.

    Interview

    I had a terrible experience with NetApp. I had 4 45 minute phone interviews followed by a 3.5 hour onsite. After waiting to hear back, I was requested to come back onsite for another 5.5 hour interview. (For the second onsite, I was told that there wouldn't be a break for lunch or any time to eat). I was told that I'd hear back within 2 weeks. After a month passed, I finally heard back via email that I wasn't selected and that they went with another candidate. When I thanked them for the opportunity and asked for feedback, I heard nothing. While the technical people there seem like hard working, fun people to be around, I found the other managers to be arrogant.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at NetApp.

    Interview

    It's terrible and unfair practice. Gone through one telephone interview is fine. There are 4-5 people on site interview. Most of them are young graduates.One old person also ask the same logic issue. I don't know how much do they know about storage area networking technology.

    Interview Questions

    • They use unpractical algorithm to test the candidate. This algorithm test a ridiculous single link list which point back to certain node. You have to do it the way they expect can not add any field inside the structure. If you don't give answer the way they want, they said "It's very basic problem." A bunch humiliation toward candidate even I am humble to face them. This is very unprofessional. I don't know how U.S. will ready this group of H1 to be U.S. citizens.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at NetApp in August 2014.

    Interview

    Initially spoke with recruiter on the phone for 5 minutes. Asked two questions, Salary expectation + Times available to work. Setup interview with internal engineers for two days later. Spoke with engineers on the phone for 20 minutes. Nothing technical, they just asked general questions. This was Friday and in-person interview was setup for Tuesday morning @ 8:00 am. First met with Sr. Escalation Engineers. I was asked some general troubleshooting questions. The questions were like something out of a test. Then was asked some troubleshooting questions. Interview was all across the board with no real structure. Afterwards, met with two managers. This part was more structured. They were more interested in customer service and to see if I would be a good fit. It was a bit impersonal because they were taking notes on their laptops. They said they would get back with by the end of the week but haven't heard back two weeks later. Recruiter has been responsive but I have gotten no good feedback just yet.
