    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Seagate Technology in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got an email from the engineer manager 10 days after my online application, to schedule a phone interview, which turned out to last for one hour. Basically about what you have on your resume. Then one week later, two engineers interviewed me by phone, each for around 0,5 hour. Also about the stuff on the resume, but a few technical questions. It was a fast process.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Seagate Technology.

    Interview Details

    The interview wasn't all that tough. It was me and 7 other engineers. I was mostly questioned about what I would do with a new project and how I related to the team and to vendors. It mostly felt like a conversation. I did spend a fair amount of time putting together a small portfolio that I send them before hand.

    Interview Questions
    • The only real technical questions I was asked was some GD&T questions. Its wasn't real hard as it is was based on drawing that I gave them.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I didnt really negotiate as the salary was more than I expedited.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Seagate Technology.

    Interview Details

    Terrible overall process. Went through five phone/skype interviews over the course of three weeks; so not a small commitment on my part. Followed up with hiring manager a week later to check on status of their process and/or their decision and was ignored completely. I thought maybe he was on vacation or something, so waited another week to follow up with HR and she finally told me that they've decided to keep looking. I understand I wasn't a good fit, but at least have the courtesy to tell me that in a timely fashion without me having to reach out to multiple people...

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Seagate Technology in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my application I received an email 5 days later asking if I was still interested and asking for my availability to set up an interview. They would need about 4 hours of my time. When I arrived I met with the employee from human resources who got me settled and prepared me for who I was going to meet. I met with 8 different employees including 2 current interns. All of the people I met with had technical jobs at Seagate including engineering managers and also more specific to where I would be working. I got to see the equipment I would be working with and saw a brief explanation and example of some different procedures. The entire interview was very relaxed as everybody was friendly. I was expected to go into detail regarding my experience and explain parts of my past jobs in detail. Most of the questions I received were regarding characteristics.

    Interview Questions
    • No question in particular was overly difficult. One memorable question where I was asked to go into some detail was "What is the difference between good code and bad code?"   Answer Question
