Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NetApp (Santa Clara, CA) in November 2015.

Initial phone conversation with HR followed by multiple interviews onsite. Onsite interviews were with HR, leaders/manager of various sister teams (Engineering, Marketing) and VP. The HR person talked about availability. The other leaders talked about the interactions I would have with their teams. I did not interview with anyone else in the direct team, except for the hiring manager.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NetApp (Wichita, KS) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The HR recruiter interviewed me first. Then the hiring manager and then each of the members of the team. After that, I had one more interview with the hiring manager. It was a pretty rigorous process.

    Interview Questions

    • Since I was being hired for the New College Graduate program, the questions were fairly generic.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They were not negotiable with vacation but were negotiable with the salary and bonuses. Overall, it went really quick and ultimately the hiring manager makes the decision.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I applied through the careers page and received a phone interview invitation from the recruiter via email. The communication from the recruiter leading up to the interview was very good. The interviewer was a lower level product manager, who asked six background & fit questions over the 40 minute session. Everything seemed to go smoothly, although he made a comment that may have indicated that I was overqualified by a couple of years. In general however I felt pretty good about the phone interview.

    Things fell apart after that....there was no communication AT ALL from the recruiter over the next 5 weeks. I sent five emails and left three voice messages inquiring of my status and none of them were returned. I'm guessing that the recruiter was laid off due to the company's shaky financial performance last quarter, but even then it seems that someone should have picked up his remaining work. Totally unprofessional!
