    Interview Details

    Smooth, professional, On time, respectful, high level conversation, not that much info about the background of the interviewer, company main products and solutions and something that warms up the conversation and break the ice.

    Interview Questions
    • Detailed questions about the statistical analysis. Very little information shared during the interview about the goal of the position and what specific business issues this role is supposed to work on and gives solutions. Not a good wrapping up at the end by the interviewer.   Answer Question

    Senior Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at NetApp in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    On the day that all in-person interviews were completed (a Monday), I asked the hiring manager when he planned to make a final decision. He told me that all candidate interviews were complete and a decision would be made by the following Friday (4 days away). Friday came and went with no word from anyone at NetApp. I followed up with the recruiter the following week. I was told that the hiring manager was out of town, but he was interested. For the following four weeks, neither the recruiter nor the hiring manager reached out to me one single time. Each time I sent a follow up note I heard that the hiring manager was still interested BUT, wrapping up additional interviews, vetting candidates, etc.

    My complaint is not that I didn't get the job. In fact, by the time 5 weeks had passed and I still had no word from NetApp, I wasn't sure that I would even want to work for someone with such poor follow up. My complaint is that I was mislead from day one. A simple courtesy call from either the recruiter or the hiring manager to let me know the change in status.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NetApp in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    After recruiters collected resumes on campus, I had a 10 minute screening call and invitation to attend the NetApp Super Day. In the Super Day you are interviewing for 2 different positions. You do not get to pick which positions you interview for; they are assigned by the Finance recruitment manager based on resume fit. There are 3 interviews in the morning and 3 interviews in the afternoon. The interviews were 30 minutes each so you barely had time to "walk through" the resume and then answer a few behavioral questions. If you are articulate, have good work experiences and ask great questions at the end of the interview, then the job is yours. NetApp has a friendly culture and the interview experience is not intended to be stressful. They want to get to know you and discover why they need to hire you over other applicants. They provide great interview questions that create an opportunity for you to share what makes you special.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me a time when you made a mistake and what did you learn from it?
      What was a difficult decision you had to make?
      Tell me a time when you worked in a team?

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at NetApp in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process took about 3 weeks from first interview to offer. Had a 30 minutes phone interview with the recruiter, she was very nice. Asked me technical and analytics questions from a list. Most questions were based on the the teams needs. Afterwards I interviewed with the hiring manager for 30 minutes. This time it was mostly behavioral questions, trying to get a sense of how I work and if I was a culture fit. Next I was invited onsite and was interviewed by 3 team members for 45 minutes each all behavioral questions and questions about how my experience fits with their requirements. After the interviews I was asked to watch a talk then prepare and present a presentation all in about 30 minutes, this was to rate my communication and presentation skills. Finally I was called onsite again another day for a last interview with 2 more senior team members. This was more like a chat and not a structured interview.
