    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Netskope.

    Interview

    I had a 1 hour technical interview via phone/remote coding. The interviewer didn't offer much hints and took a phone call while we were interviewing. They didn't seem to care about the process at all. Bad experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Netskope (Los Altos, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on the company's site. Received their response in couple of days.
    1st technical phone interview arranged after an initial conversation with HR department.
    onsite interview arranged after passing the phone technical interview.
    The entire interview process was efficient.

    Thanks to the HR department for arranging the interviews for me and thanks to the team for taking the time to interview me.

    However, a bit disappointed about the professional manner at the last step. I think it would be better to spend about 2 - 3 minutes (you may already have the email template for that, so only need to change the candidate's name and job title) to reply candidate's follow up email to let them know your decision instead of ghosting them .

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Netskope (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Visited the stall at University Career Fair. Talked to an engineer, was a good technical discussion. He went through my resume and offered me an on-campus interview the same day. The interviewers were very friendly. The interview was not technical though, just some analytical puzzles to test basic logic. Was told after the interview that my application will be forwarded to the software engineering team and they will reach out to me in few days to let me know if there is any opening that matches my profile.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Netskope (San Jose, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied by reaching out a University Recruiting Specialist.

    She carefully assessed my profile, relevant work, and arranged a call with a member of technical staff which was my first interview.
    He (a very humble interviewer) questioned to assess my technical knowledge and asked my background to measure my skills. It was moderate to a little tough, which required precise answers.

    The next round was a programming assessment which took place on a phone call and a collaborative programming environment. The interviewer asked cutting edge and questions that would test my logical ability. He was quite motivating and guided me where I missed something.

    The University Recruiting Specialist coordinated thoroughly and guided me at all steps in documentation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Netskope (Los Altos, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Initially, I had a phone interview with one of the software engineers working at Netskope. This interview was primarily focused on gauging my technical skills and interests. Additionally, it was for me to ask any questions I had about the company. After this, I did an on-site interview that lasted about an hour or so. My interviewers were both very friendly and made sure I was relaxed the whole way through.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Netskope in October 2016.

    Interview

    I spoke to the hiring manager for a second round interview, and I thought the interview went well. In reality, the interviewer ended up wasting both his and my time. After he asked his questions, I asked him a final question of "How do we proceed from here?". He mentioned that I was one of the candidates lower down the list due to my lack of experience in the networking field. In the end, that meant a no, but what I do not appreciate is that if he knew that I did not have experience in the networking industry, then why did he bother to waste both his and my time. He should have known that most fresh college graduates are not going to have much networking experience to begin with. Lastly, the hiring manager had a very pretentious vibe to himself, and in the end I am glad that I am not working for someone like you.
