    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Nimble Storage (Durham, NC).

    Interview

    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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nimble Storage (San Jose, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    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...
