    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nutanix (Richmond, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Had a great interview with hiring manager as well as multiple interviews and conversations with upper management and peers. Met with engineering partners as well as channel partners and discussed the value proposition of Nutanix. I felt like it was a bi-directional interview process.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nutanix (Durham, NC).

    Interview

    Most unprofessional interview process ever experienced.

    Everything is about their culture. Meaning, if you're a functional alcoholic, you'll fit in just fine. I don't think they interview based on resume and actual skill, they just want to know if you'll be fun enough to join in on their lunchtime flip cup and beer pong games.

    When they do actually ask you about your experience and qualifications, they decide to throw in comments about how much they don't like your current coworker who used to work for them. To add insult to injury, they then make you wait four weeks before telling you they've moved on to other candidates without any feedback.

    Unless you're a frat star with a liver of steel, don't bother. The "culture" is code word for HR nightmare.
