I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at NetApp in November 2012.
Interview Details – Pretty quick in the beginning... then had delays due to HR lead leaving the company and holiday shutdown, but ultimately got back on track, got an offer, and accepted.
I made contact directly with HR via referral, submitted resume, applied and got call for phone interview within 7-10 days with the hiring manager. Onsite interview was scheduled within 10 days. Due to scheduling/proximity, I did two additional interviews over the phone: one with the VP and one with a remote colleague. Then 5 people onsite. All went well, then went dark. Got call a few weeks later from hiring manager that HR lead had left the company, and they had one more person to interview, but were still interested. Asked me for my salary expectations.
Got email from HR the following week to schedule an additional interview which got postponed another week due to my personal travel. By the time I did the final interview, I had voicemails waiting for me within 20 minutes to make me an offer (though I wasn't home to receive them!). Got the call on Tuesday they "intended" to make me an offer, got verbal offer from HR on Wed, asked for 24 hours to review. Talked with HR again on Thursday to negotiate, reconnected on Friday 1 hour before the holiday shutdown to finalize the negotiation and accept. Then had to wait for holiday shutdown to lapse to get through senior management approvals on the negotiated package, etc.
They started back on Jan. 2, by Jan. 3rd I had a FedEx package with the formal (negotiated) offer and paperwork to be completed, which I returned same day (they pay postage). As soon as they received it on Friday, they sent me a second Welcome Package via FedEx which I received on Saturday. Done deal.
None of the paperwork confirmed the start date, though, so I had to contact both HR and the hiring manager the following Monday to confirm my start date. Otherwise, all was very smooth, very fair, very respectful, etc.
Looking forward to my new adventure!
Interview Question – Nothing difficult or unexpected. All job related. Behavioral interviews - examples of when I did xyz which was easy for this job. They did ask a few questions related to difficult problems they needed to solve and didn't have an answer for to see how I might be able to help them
:-) and probed a bit on how I might approach making the transition to NetApp after being at HP for almost 27 years... View Answer
Negotiation Details – They were willing to negotiate only on base salary, and in my case, signing bonus (rare, from what they tell me). Will not negotiate vacation time, RSUs, benefits, etc.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at NetApp in January 2008.
Interview Details – Initial communications were clear and directed. The planning process involved an onsite series of interviews by five individuals, both in single and group settings. The triangulation process on my abilities was well executed and allowed me to promote myself in additional ways than my resume alone would have suggested. Overall, the process was well organized and efficiently run. It worked out well for both sides.
Interview Question – When traveling with your manager, how would you determine which item to address in passing bad information along to him/her, when two events have just occurred: 1) your largest account has just cancelled a 7-figure order, and 2) the enhancement request upon which you had been counting for 65% of your annual sales, will be pushed back because of engineering delays?

Negotiation Details – Yes, I was able to negotiate my salary and stock options.
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at NetApp in November 2012.

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at NetApp in October 2012.
Interview Details – I was contacted shortly after sending in my resume through my school's career center website. The first (and final) round for me was going to their campus in Sunnyvale. The day consisted of three interviews with recent hires and Senior Managers. All three interviews were extremely laid back and just touched on my experience and resume. Everyone was really friendly so the atmosphere was not very intimidating.
About two weeks after the interviews I was contacted and told that I did not get the position.
Interview Question – Why Finance and not Accounting? Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at NetApp.
Interview Details – Recruiter set up phone calls with hiring manager to discuss role and my potential fit. Once hiring manager decided to move forward, I was flown to Sunnyvale to interview with four management level employees. The interviews were quite technical in nature and some attempted to talk me out of the role, perhaps to see if I was really interested.
Interview Question – Fibonacci Sequence/Golden Equation question View Answer
Negotiation Details – Not much. The offer was in stone and not what was previously discussed. The company sounded so good, I decided to make the move anyways.

Interview Question – dont' remember Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at NetApp.
Interview Details – Applied online and received an email for a phone interview within the week. The phone interview with the hiring manager was mainly an overview of what the position entailed and a short rundown of some resume questions. I was told I'd receive a notification if I got into the next round within the next 3 days.
The next day, I was emailed again and set up an on-site interview for next week. It consisted of 3 rounds of interviews within the on-site interview. I finally finished after about 3 hours. The 1st interview was with a panel of 3 members on the team. Next, it was the hiring manager, and then another manager.
I was given an offer within 3 days of the last interview.. very fast turnaround time.
Each of these interviews were mainly based on skill set and experience that would be relevant to the position... again, know your resume and bring up projects (even if they weren't on your resume). Be confident, answer all questions with specific details, and KNOW THE COMPANY. There weren't too many situational questions during any of my interviews. Ask good questions!
Interview Question – Give an example of a time where you streamlined a process. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation as this was an internship.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at NetApp in January 2008.
Interview Details – Worked through a recruiter initially who was a NetApp employee and described the job, the office, the culture, projects, opportunities, and the team I'd be working with. Initial interview was an all-day event and I met with 6 or 7 interviewers. Very tough and through but they want the best people.
Interview Question – A lot of questions around character and culture fit, which is extremely important at NetApp. Answer Question

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at NetApp in April 2012.
Interview Details – I applied through the careers page and received a phone interview invitation from the recruiter via email. The communication from the recruiter leading up to the interview was very good. The interviewer was a lower level product manager, who asked six background & fit questions over the 40 minute session. Everything seemed to go smoothly, although he made a comment that may have indicated that I was overqualified by a couple of years. In general however I felt pretty good about the phone interview.
Things fell apart after that....there was no communication AT ALL from the recruiter over the next 5 weeks. I sent five emails and left three voice messages inquiring of my status and none of them were returned. I'm guessing that the recruiter was laid off due to the company's shaky financial performance last quarter, but even then it seems that someone should have picked up his remaining work. Totally unprofessional!
