    Senior Supply Chain Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume online and was contacted by the recruiter. Set up a phone interview with him.
    I was expecting the typical recruiter phone screen asking why you want the job, what your background is, etc. Instead, after asking those "are you authorized to work in the US", "have you ever worked for Seagate before" -type questions, he dove right into "we can't continue to talk unless you tell me your salary and how much you would leave for".
    I tried to skirt the issue, but his pushy insistence on knowing these details before I even got to speak to a hiring manager resulted in me telling him that I am no longer interested. Only after I told him that, did he tell me what the salary on offer was and that it wasn't negotiable. He was right. It would have been a waste of my time to interview with them as their salary for the position was significantly less than what I was making at my current job.

    Had two 1-2 hour phone interviews before having an onsite 3 hour interview with the Manager, Sr Manager and VP. Mostly straight forward asking about experiences, my accomplishments etc. There were some questions on where I want to be in a few years as they are looking to hire and retain younger employees.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Seagate Technology in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview took about 4 hours, I got the interview 2-3 days after applying. I was interviewed by seven different people in the department plus two current co-op students, each interview lasting a half hour. Overall a very good interviewing experience, they were all very friendly. Half of the interviews consisted of skill tests while the other half was almost like a tour of the company and what they do. One interviewer also brought me on a lunch break which included a company-paid meal, which was nice.

    Internal Auditor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Seagate Technology in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Three interviews:
    Over the phone with Staff Auditor
    Over the phone with Senior Auditor
    In person with Staff, senior, and VP of Internal Audit.

    Everyone was extremely kind. A few technical questions about audit, not too much as this was an entry-level type position. Most of the questions during the phone interviews were behavioral, and about your philosophy on communications and team work.

    During the in-person interview, there was a sort of test: you had to write an audit report based on a scenario. It was OK that I didn't have any audit experience, I just made stuff up. They just want to see your writing ability. They will teach you the specific audit requirements.

    Position was awarded to someone else with more audit experience (although this was a no-experience required position).
