Interview

The HR team ghosted on me after saying they would reach out again either way. I participated in more than 3 calls, so I feel at least a rejection call or email is warranted, especially after saying they would be in touch.

I am forced to leave Netflix because they give false promises. I was an intern first and have been a FTE for a year now and have not gotten the comp changes I was promised. Since have seen many people come in entry level and get so much more than me but they are so much less equipped and worse than I was as an intern. Do they hate their own?

Wonderful experience. Felt that they asked a lot of questions that really made me think about why I wanted to work here. I was able to talk to a few people from all different job titles to give me an all encompassing feel for what working with the team would be.

It started with an introductory phone interview. Then I had an interview over zoom. I finally came into the office and it was a great experience. It was difficult, but it was a great learning experience.

Quick interview, basic questions, but it seemed like the recruiter was very disinterested & wasn't listening (repeated questions). They never got back to me, I would have at least liked a rejection confirmation.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Netflix (Los Gatos, CA) in Apr 2022

Interview

Applied directly and recruiter responded after about a month. They had a video chat with me where it was clear they were screening for culture fit. This is absolutely a step where you could get disqualified - it's a part of the intervew. After the recruiter approved me they put me in touch with an internal "talent coordinator" or something like that who scheduled my meeting with the team manager. The 30 minute video screen with the manager was very pleasant. He mentioned that every manager at Netflix is pretty much given control over how they want to interview, so I would keep that in mind when you read other peoples reviews here...it really matters who you're interviewing with. He did say that the culture is not as cutthroat as a lot of people make it seem or even as their culture memo makes it seem. He did mention that they are still screening heavily for the "brilliant jerk" and trying to get them out of there. Generally, it seems like you will understand your performance, have a helping hand if any correction is needed, and really be set up for success. Autonomy is expected to an extent, but you have to get along with the team. You get fired if they missed a major fundamental in screening or if you don't get along, basically. It ended here for me before the tech interview despite really positive feedback. The manager just had people with extensive experiences in more niche areas, so he is going with them for now but mentioned he could quite likely circle back to me in the future. The manager did mention the 3rd phase would have been a shared coding exercise with one of his engineers but that it might be quite easy and to just start on it right away rather than overthinking it. For this particular manager, he said I should not expect a leetcode type of question and that generally most managers there are moving away from that. After that, which seems like it would have been easy, would be an on site screener with many different engineers. This again did not seem like it would be leetcode style questions but instead some pretty simple stuff to see how you communicate and work with others. I did get the impression that you would be screened reasonably heavily on systems design here, but again it was stressed that even at this stage this is to see how you handle feedback, how you work with others, how you communicate, etc. It was made very clear that this is a company that would be reasonably forgiving in technical interviews so long as they think you have what they need and can get along with the team.

Interview Questions
  • Hiring manager screener questions: Why Netflix? Tell me about what you are currently working on. Tell me about challenges java & scala have presented to you. Tell me about how you handle feedback and how you give feedback.
