I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Netflix in January 2013.
Interview Details – One recruiter call, a hiring manager call, and a technical call, followed by an on-site interview. During this time, the employer didn't bother to find out whether the position was actually a DevOps position or a software engineer position. By the time I got on site, I guess they decided that it was a software engineer position (with a slight focus on operations).
Some interviewers on site were prepared and professional, others were not. Overall, the experience was negative. I should never have been on site for an interview because I clearly did not have the skill set they were looking for, since I have a stronger ops background than a dev background.
Given the reviews indicating a culture of fear at Netflix, and my experience interviewing, I won't pursue a position with this company.
