    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

    So far it's only been the phone interview and it went really well. They had my resume in front of them and asked me about every skill and experience that I had written on my resume, and how it compares and can contribute to working at NetApp as a software engineer. I got offered an in-person interview sometime next week and have been told to study their protocols and sharpen up my C coding skills.

    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.

    Software Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NetApp (Boulder, CO) in October 2017.

    Interview

    It was great experience with NetApp people who works for NetApp/ SolidFire they are nice and friendly seems like they are extremely knowledgeable. First step was over the with their Technical Recruiter it was easy mainly based on my previous experience . After that I had video call interview with head of engineer and one of the senior engineer which was thorough question my background, previous how long I have been coding, what is the personal strength it took 1 hour 30 minutes which was unusual. I heard back from them for in person interview couple days after video call.

    In person interview was great experience it took 4 hours with 8 different engineers as I knew they were team members from SolidFire. First round was with Automation engineers they were asking some Testing question including coding questions which was fairly normal, not hard not easy question. Second round was Senior Engineers who has deep knowledge developer mainly asked about coding questions it was more how would you design your class for particular example of vending machine also Linux questions. Third and fourth round is more of chatting QA question as well as general role behavior and expectation based.

    I did not get offer the reason is my Linux experience/knowledge was not enough for NetApp/ SolidFire I think it was fair because company is based their system with Linux strongly. My recommendation for this particular position if you apply for Test Engineer in Development you should have strong Linux and coding experience.

    I personally enjoyed my time at NetApp people seems to be so nice and helpful.

    Interview

    I interviewed on campus. Interview was around 30 minuets. Half behavioral and half technical questions. The behavioral questions were normal and simple but the technical scenarios seemed simple but the interviewers response to the questions was very hard to gauge. I didn't like the ambiguity behind the interviewer.
