Engineer - QA Interview

Engineer - QA
Los Gatos, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Netflix in July 2010.

Interview Details – HR interview - Hiring manager interview - Personal interview for 4 hours with 5 people - 2nd round interview with executive team for 3 hours
Passed the first 3 levels, the 4th one is where they didn't find that my skills are a perfect match.
Always stressing that the culture here is different, very dynamic, we have only the best, we don't hesitate to remove people who don't perform, very short-term projects, we don't have long term plan, don't know what will come next, don't tell us that something is broken unless you know how to fix it etc. Intimidating perhaps.

But the HR was professional throughout, even sending the rejection email the very next day.

Interview Question – How will you handle the culture difference from where you come from and Netflix?   View Answer
