    Program Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at NetApp.

    Interview

    Many interviewers from several times were involved. Seems like all teams had to agree rather than let hiring manager be empowered to decide. Very nice motivated people but not sure why so many need to interview.

    Interview

    Interviewed with staff from several different time zones and locations. It took a while because lots of different groups had to weigh in on the decision. Overall very friendly people that took time out to be involved in selecting the correct fit for the role.

    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at NetApp.

    Interview

    Twice received an email gauging my interest for different positions and twice received no feedback on whether they would like to move forward. This may be an isolated incident as it was from the same HR manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at NetApp.

    Interview

    NetApp put me through a series of 9 phone interviews.

    All the calls went well. They were basic interviews - nothing fancy, weird, or unexpected. At the end of each call, every interviewer said they would give me a positive recommendation to the hiring manager.

    After the last phone interview, it was radio silence for weeks.

    I pinged the recruiter multiple times, and was repeatedly told that 'things are looking good for you' and that I was 'still in play' for the position.

    After more than a month and a half had passed, I contacted the recruiter again.

    He told me that the job opening had been 'put on hold.' That was the last I heard from them.

    Pretty frustrating... but I guess I got a lot of phone interview practice out of it!

    One phone screen, multiple rounds of in person interview onsite. I found the process to be moderately easy and the people they chose were very knowledgeable. I was hired as an intern and then brought on full time.

    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Not too bad, the interviewer was welcoming and really exciting. He pitched me projects that I'd be interested in, and if I was, he asked me questions related to that. They took a long time to get back to me though. I resume dropped at a career fair in January, and didn't hear until April, though I'm assuming I ended up being a replacement for someone else.

    Interview Questions

    • Know your data structures and networking, and have some enthusiasm for the projects. They're really upfront on whether you'd be a good fit or not.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I got a significantly less hourly pay because I was a college freshman, but was able to negotiate up a little.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NetApp (Research Triangle Park, NC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First I had a brief phone interview with the hiring manager. He mainly asked questions about my resume and experience. He also asked about my study abroad experience. Then I was invited to an onsite interview that lasted 2 hours. When I came for my onsite interview, I was met in the lobby by my first interviewer and taken to the interview room. The room had a couple whiteboards and I was encouraged to use them during the interview. I interviewed with 3 people on the team that I would be working with. The first person I interviewed with was a manager and the other 2 were Engineers. The interviews were very behavioral and I was encouraged to ask questions. They asked me questions for the first half and I asked them questions for the second half. It was a very enjoyable and relaxed interview. I learned a lot about the team I would be working with, the company culture, and the job I would be doing.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time that you worked on a team to build a piece of software?
      Tell me about a time that you had to learn a programming language that you didn't know (without professional instruction)? How did you go about learning the language? What resources did you use?
      Tell me how you would write a function/method that would take a subnet mask as a parameter and return the number of hosts the subnet could support if 2 of the IP addresses were reserved?
