    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    The process involves a series of 1:1 interviews starting with the HR coordinator, meeting with the team members, and ending with the hiring manager. My interview for this job was an internal transfer and I did not use glassdoor as glassdoor did not exist when I interviewed for this job.

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate, but my interview was an internal transfer, so the options were fairly limited.

    Channel Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NetApp (Englewood, CO) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Very Time consuming over 4 interview time slots and talked with 5 people. First interview was 2 hours long with three local people. One that was leaving the job, District Manager, and then a technical director. Second Interview was with the hiring Manager, 3rd interview was with the hiring manager and a person from his staff. Could really have been done in one day if they had their business in line. A waste of time. Perhaps this is why the stock price is dropping.

    Interview Questions

    • Why am I leaving my current role? What would I do to generate Channel revenue outside the box? What was my biggest accomplishment to date?   1 Answer
