    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    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.
