Sustaining Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.
