Sustaining Engineer Interview

Sustaining Engineer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at NetApp in April 2010.

Interview Details – Contacted by HR recruiter who received my resume. The position was located in another state (RTP, NC) but the possibility existed that it could be moved to an office closer to where I live.

I received email asking to set up a time for a 30 minute phone screen. The questions were not too bad (What is K&R, how many bits in IPv6 address, etc)

I was call by the HR recruiter 8 days later letting me know that my application would be submitted to the manager and there would be another technical phone screen. That took place 3 days later with another person who seemed to specialize in technical screening. Tougher questions.

Interview Question – Logic question
   - You are alone on an island with these items; cigarette lighter, cell phone, 2 fuse ropes
        - each rope is consumed by fire in 60 seconds
        - you can't assume constant burn rate for any portion of rope, only total time
        - you can't cut ropes
        How to measure 45 seconds
