    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at NetApp in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    No classical unexpected or strange question during the interview. Just relaxed experience talking about my previous jobs. Had to go through several steps: 2 conference calls, 2 interviews locally, 1 fina brief call before the job offer. About three weeks time, so relatively quick. No feedback on intermediate steps. Overall, good experience and met only serious, focused people.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at NetApp in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process started out with communications with their corporate recruiter. That interaction initially was good but the follow through was horrible. The Scheduler was awesome and stayed on task and kept me very well informed. I was interviewed by multiple people that were all Director level or above and from a broad swath of the organization. There were Sales, Technical, Operations and Executive involved. Overall the interview process was better than expected and well thought out and engaging.

    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at NetApp.

    Interview Details

    Interview was coordinated through Zerochaos. Interview questions were about what I would contribute but also what would my expectations be for working for NetApp. Interviewers were very quick to say SDR job was very little pay for a lot of work with no guarantee of moving into a permanent position. Ideally jobs would be available after 14 months.

    Senior Graphic Designer, Contract Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sunnyvale, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at NetApp in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by a recruiter who did the initial phone interview who then contacted me a couple of days later to set up a phone interview with the team supervisor. The following week, I was asked on-site for face-to-face interview(s) with four different team members. Not a panel interview, thank god, but rather one at a time (and one via phone conference). The whole onsite interview process took about 2 hours.
    I felt the interviews went well but was still surprised when the recruiter offer came as I was driving home.
    Started 1st day of work within 2 weeks of interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • No unexpected questions were asked - mostly just going over my resume more in detail. The manager asked more behavior questions such as explaining how & what process I use for time/project management.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As a contractor, the offer was set with the recruiter prior to interviewing. I did however set the expectations for a flexible work environment and came to an agreement with the team supervisor & manager.
