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.
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

## Systems Engineer Interview

No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at NetApp (Champaign, IL) in May 2017.

Interview

30-minute screening interview for their new program which was supposed to be launched in June 2017. The interview was amazing, I did great (at least that's what the Hiring Manager said), she promised to get back in a couple of days. I waited for a week, then emailed her, she didn't respond. I emailed her again the next week, she didn't respond. The employee who referred me emailed her as well, she didn't respond to that either. I had heard great things about the organization, and I was absolutely interested in their new program. And that's the reason why I waited for their response before finalizing other options. I wish the Hiring Manager at least had the courtesy to send a rejection email if she wasn't interested in hiring. People say we should not waste the recruiter's time, I wish the recruiters stopped taking our time for granted. We are talented individuals and deserve to be treated with respect.

Interview Questions

• NetApp's products, my background, where I see myself in 5 years, mostly behavioral questions   Answer Question
