    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was lucky to get an interview through a company recruiter as a result of applying for a software engineer position via their website. The recruiter called me about about a month later and arranged for me to have an on-site interview which was scheduled a week
    ahead. I was interviewed by 4 very technical engineers and the interview lasted for 4 1/2 hours. The interview was made up of programming questions, designs questions and a
    discussion of my work over a long period since I have been in the industry a long time.
    Although I had prepared well ahead, I was still C-algorithm-savvy enough to answer
    some of their questions.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Given a binary tree, find the path from leaf node to leaf node such that the values of nodes in between are the maximum. The interviewer was interested more the maximum sum than the path itself.

      2. Write/describe algorithm to re-sort a rotated sorted array with O(1) complexity.

      3. Given an array of integers design an algorithm to return the sum of all integers in a given range with O(1) complexity. So, sum(i1, i2) returns sum of all integers i1 - i2. No for() loops.
      Now, how would you do it if the array were 2 dimensional?
      4. Merge 2 link lists. So, if the linked lists are L1 and L2, the resultant list will be L1->next = L2, L2->next = L1(original)->next; ... They may not have the same number of elements.   1 Answer

    Sales Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    My former company used to purchase NetApp products. However, after going through the interview process with them, I now know why their arrogance keeps them from getting more business.
    I have also interviewed with them for a different position which was very similar to how poorly I was treated and spoken to this time around. I will not ever apply here again.
    The internal recruiter asks all sorts of questions about details on your resume, which you know he has zero clue what you are talking about when you provide detail because it breaks out into more detailed questioning. Then you will be blamed for giving too much detail. Why waste my time asking me to regurgitate my resume if you don't want details or have any clue what I am talking about?

    Advice: If NetApp wants HR to do the 1st round, be sure they have at least SOME experience with some of the details on people's resume. Not some clueless Millenial with no life experience.

    2nd interview. Senior Manager who wanted to ask 13 questions in 30 minutes.
    Ridiculous.
    Yes, really and then got very self righteous when I asked for any level of detail about the organization. What NetApp wants is a unicorn wrapped in a tidy 29-year old package with maybe five years of experience so they can be groomed to not have a brain to add value unless senior management tells them they can.

    Requisition as written was terribly vague to begin with, which tells me they really don't have a clue what they are looking for and then make it up as they put you through the interview process.
    Very unprofessional and a complete waste of my time.

    This experience has proved to me this company has an ageism issue.
    It is no wonder they are losing market share, they are just plain out of touch.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at NetApp (Santa Clarita, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I was very encouraged and impressed by the interview process, team and recruiter (Ryan Ziswasser) who was very responsive and prompt on followups. His followups and responses is very good benchmark for candidates who anxiously wait for updates after an interview. I went through the interview process fairly quickly from the initial screening , phone, to in person.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I had multiple rounds of interviews. I was contacted by recruiter on linkedin after which we had a quick discussion about my current project, legal status, and other general questions. Then recruiter asked me to apply in in direct site which was followed by a telephonic interview(30 mins) with a senior business process architect. The question were mostly on my knowledge in the domain and current/past projects. After few days I was call to NetApp Sunnyvale office where I was interviewed by a panel of 4 people – enterprise architect, program manager, business process architect and director (hiring manager). It was pretty much on my experience and projects. Few deep dives on projects, behavioral questions, situational questions… pretty good conversation. Next day I again had a call with another architect. After few days (in fact weeks) I was asked for a call with senior director. It went for 30 mins and was mostly a final confirmation of the decision already taken. He was very gentle and asked general questions. Offer was release after around 12 days of this call.
    In the whole process, everyone involved were very polite, punctual and very well prepared. Must appreciate the recruiter (RZ). He is damn good in articulating, follow ups, regular updates and quick response.
    The only things that may make you anxious is the time taken between all the steps. It was more for me because it was Christmas break time but still, it could have been better.
