    Incident Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Mountain View, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by some Indian manager and I could tell right away that he had no intentions of making me an offer and was just going through the motions because HR sent him my resume - because I am super qualified and have over a decade of experience. He obviously knew, based on my last name not being Indian, that he didn't want to hire me prior to the interview. He just started going through a bunch of technical questions related to the Incident Management process, so not technology questions but rather process questions, and it really made no sense to barrage me in the manner he did, unless of course you are trying to set the candidate up to fail so that you have some easy excuse to tell HR to send the candidate on their way. And I actually answered all of his questions correctly. If that wasn't his plan to set me up to fail, then the individual was incompetent and didn't know how to conduct an interview. Either way, he shouldn't be in a manager role at NVIDIA or any company and I hope NVIDIA will discover this failure of a manager and remove him.

    High Level Technical Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    I interviewed with several team members all day at the beautiful new Endeavor campus. Based on the Glassdoor reviews, at first I was worried that they might ask random academic questions just because it's Silicon Valley, but actually the vast majority of questions were relevant to the areas of expertise needed for the job.

    It took about a week after the interview to get declined.

    I have the impression that NVIDIA is an amazing company, probably one of the best places to work in the country right now if you want to be on the cutting edge of AI.

    The only suggestion I have (if the company is reading this) is to have someone on the interview team send a note with personalized feedback if NVIDIA is genuine about the wording in the rejection letter about encouraging me to apply for new openings. I have a rare skill set that is difficult to find on the market, and the team interviews seemed to go well. So I can imagine the company reaching out to me again at some point if there is an opening that is a better match, but I am not sure it that's just a boilerplate rejection letter (probably) or they genuinely want me to apply again.

    Overall it was a good experience.
