Engineering Manager Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Netflix (Los Gatos, CA) in March 2014.
Two rounds of interviews. First round focused on technical aspects, second round on culture/team fit. The technical interview questions were quite challenging, but fair. There were no trick questions, but they really did expect you to have deep technical knowledge of the area you work in. Also don't assume that the HR interviews will be easy. These were actually some of the the most probing and challenging (unlike other companies). They really ask you some hard questions about decision you've made in the past, and why you're looking to work at Netflix.

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Netflix (Los Gatos, CA) in December 2010.
Contacted by Netflix. The HR got saw my profile on Linkedin and thought I am a good match. Did 2 phone interviews, with HR and the Hiring manager. Interviewed in the office twice, once by the hiring manager , second time a half day interview. Was asked technical and managerial questions. The hiring manager came at the end of the day and told me I didn't get the job. I liked the feedback, since most companies don't even bother to notify you that you didn't qualify.

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Netflix in January 2011.
Referred by a friend. Invited to an informal interview as a courtesy. Not sure there was really a job available. The talk was perfunctory and not very in-depth. Interviewer spent most of the time talking about his own career and his ups & downs at Netflix. He was not prepared to discuss my resume (even though my skillset matches their business very well), but offered to pass it along to someone who might be interested. Noticed that the office was nearly completely empty in the engineering bullpen. In other words, it was a big waste of time. I sent a thank you note and asked him to please drop me a line about a followup. Nada.
