I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2015.
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.
- 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
I got a significantly less hourly pay because I was a college freshman, but was able to negotiate up a little.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA).
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.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2015.
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.

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

I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeks – interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in February 2015.
This was a new grad role. I managed to talk to the University recruiting folks at the college career fair, and pass my resume. I got an email a couple of weeks later for a schedule for phone interview with the hiring manager. A week later they called me onsite and conducted interviews with the team. I got a call after 2 weeks that they were interested to give me an offer.
- Very generic behavioral interviews. They want to know if the candidate is a good fit for NetApp's work culture. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in October 2014.
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.
I was able to negotiate my base.
