    Software Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at NetApp.

    Interview Details

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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.
