    Interview Details

    Great process - but I already knew some of the team so I came based on my reputation and previous work
    This was 20 months ago - and wasn't a problem... but I'm sure not everyone has previous work experience with the hiring team.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Nimble Storage.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the career fair on campus.
    Was asked to apply online.
    A week later asked to solve a programming question. Was not difficult just a simple oops concept.
    A week later onsite interview. There were 3 for 45 minutes each.
    The interviews were decent about my project.
    The people seemed chaotic in their own way. No idea which team or project I was to work on.
    Also, communication with the hiring manager was very poor. it took a lot of time to get back if I asked a question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nimble Storage in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by one of my ex-colleagues.
    So there was no phone screen. They invited me directly for face-to-face interviews.
    Met with 4 people including a manager and director.
    They were all technical.
    Interviewers were pretty decent.
    All of them asked a blend of coding and design questions.
    Move a robot from point A to point B.
    Design redundancy and consistency for a storage system etc.
    Another interviewer went into C++ coding skills.

    Was a bit nervous, so did OK but not too bad . But Nobody bothered to respond with feedback.
    The recruiter sent no reply despite pinging her 2-3 times...

    QA Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Nimble Storage.

    Interview Details

    This was one company where the job description was not ready when the recruiter contacted. It seems very chaotic environment when things change frequently. Also the interview feedback process is extremely unprofessional. It takes them weeks to get back. It was such a bad experience as I felt that this company needs some proper Staffing process and hiring managers needs to be trained. Most of the managers are not that experienced enough and do not have much industry experience but now they are either Senior Managers or Directors who do not have experience enough to be disciplined enough to decide on the job requirement before contacting the candidates. This company needs some serious management training on hiring.
    I didn't get the job that I had interviewed for but they contacted me again in few months for the same job. what an excellent process to keep a track of the people they interviewed already!
