I received a call from the recruiter that briefly confirmed my experiences in regards to the position requirements. We scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager a couple days later.

The in-person interviews consisted of 2.5 hours of 5 back-to-back interviews from different people on the team. They consisted of mainly scenario based white board questions. "How would you do this?" type of scenarios.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NetApp in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Responded to a recruiter's e-mail to the local Linux User's Group, 15 minute phone screen with the recruiter followed by a 1 hour in-person interview with manager and 3 senior team members, followed by a full tour and introductions by the hiring manager. Background check was a fiasco, as the background company reported that I did not graduate high school without contacting anyone for more information. Ultimate this was resolve by threat of lawsuit against the KnowX LLC, the background check company.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Anonymous Employee in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at NetApp in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    They contact you over phone for a moderate screening. I was a former employee at NetApp and i was applying for a graduate intern position.

    I have been interviewed both at RTP and Sunnyvale campus for two different teams. The culture is the hiring manager tries to get as many engineers from his team or occasionally other closely working teams to interview you.

    There were 6 interviews for me:
    1. Analytical and basic programming
    2. Scripting like perl/python
    3. Data storage knowledge is add-on. iSCSI, flash, storage stack, disk drivers
    4. File System and OS knowledge is required.

    Interview Questions
    • They may ask you general stuffs too. Like puzzles. And being a former employee, i have seen that asking puzzles or brain storming programming questions can be fairly expected. But the interviewers are lenient on your performance, they don't grill u or judge your IQ.   Answer Question

    Technical Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at NetApp.

    Interview Details

    Initial technical phone screen. The Engineer asks a set of predetermined questions, think of it as a test, in order to gauge your technical expertise. Questions ranged from Hardware and Software, Windows Administration (DNS is a big one, AD, and Group policy) and some basic Linux administration. A few questions about NAS. And a hypothetical support scenario.

    If you get a call back it will be to come in and speak with two of their Engineers. They will grill you on your resume, so know your resume! In addition they will likely ask some of the same questions that were on the phone screening. I feel they also asked me questions that they knew I would not be able to answer.

    Interview Questions
    • A hypothetical situation where I had to read an unfamiliar man page involving a commands and switches I was not familiar with, I had to figure out the correct syntax in a limited amount of time. At the same time I was being asked questions about various other technologies and problems another customer was having. I needed to resolve both issues in an extremely limited time frame.   View Answer

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Anonymous Employee in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at NetApp in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    First, I had a telephone discussion with the hiring manager. Then HR quickly sent me an email to schedule an on-site interview.

    The on-site visit lasted about 3.5 hours. It started with a face to face interview with hiring manager and his manager. Then there were three rounds rounds of technical interviews with 2 developers (or testers) at a time.

    After the technical discussions, someone from HR came in to discuss the next step in the process, my salary expectations, and up sell the company.

    I was not given an offer, and I received an automated note telling me I was not a candidate soon after the face to face.
