    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    I interviewed with about six or seven people, and many of them didn't seem to be enjoying their job. One of them who really didn't seem at all excited about his job even told me to apply to this other company because it would be a better way to start my career. Overall, most of the people were friendly, but didn't give me the impression to want to work there.

    Interview

    Originally came in contact through a recruiter at a career fair. Initially, a phone screen reviewing my resume and providing some details about the project. Then, three onsite interviews spanning two hours with three different members of the team. Questions were mostly situational and gauging problem-solving and key software engineering concepts. The offer came a few days after the onsite interviews. Everyone involved was kind and clearly excited about the project and team.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at NetApp (Raleigh, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and the got a call a couple weeks later for a phone interview. I thought everything went well but when they took 3 weeks to tell me if I had moved on to the next round, I realized the outcome wouldn't be positive. Finally got a call back and my suspicions were confirmed. I wish they had communicated a little more timely and professionally.

    Technical Marketing Engineer Interview

    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.

    Average 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 in-person – interviewed at NetApp.

    Interview

    Nothing technical, super friendly. They aren't expecting you to know everything as an intern. I felt like it was more of a "get to know more about the company" rather than an interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Extremely urgent interview process that I accommodated despite a busy work schedule. It was a disappointing process overall. The recruiting function was non existent and not candidate focused. Very surprising especially for the valley in this climate.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing stood out in particular. Pretty standard kinds of interview questions. I did notice that the team didn't seem very aligned on what they were looking for. Each interviewer had their own style and just asked whatever was top of mind.   Answer Question
