    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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Nutanix.

    Interview

    My experience interviewing at Nutanix was amazing. They move fast and are pretty responsive, my recruiter was amazing to say the least, very professional and likable.
    I had a couple rounds of technical phone interviews before a more thorough in-person interview with their SRE team at the HQ, I interviewed with quite a few people and managers.
    The interview contained detailed troubleshooting scenarios and the interviewers were considerate, pragmatic, helpful and amazing. I interviewed at the HQ in San Jose, and they have a parking structure next to the building which is pretty convenient.
    After a few days, there was another telephonic interview in reasonable detail with an escalation engineer.
    I am impressed with Nutanix, their process is pretty deliberate, and they seem to be pretty detailed in their checks and processes as is evident from the procedures I went through.

    Interview Questions

    • I went through a few rounds of interviews which included troubleshooting scenarios, routing and switching knowledge, virtualization, storage, memory and CPU utilization determination methods, sample scenarios, Linux and Unix tools and some scripting.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nutanix in May 2017.

    Interview

    Talked to HR had a positive conversation, HR moved me on to talk to hiring manager. HM kept asking me who I knew and based his hiring on who I knew not what I knew. I steered him away from the who you know line of questioning and talked about my past performance and how it would be a fit for the job. HM stated well we are about to offer the job to someone else with a simular background but if that falls through we will call you. To avoid wasting your time ask HR where they are in the hiring process. Unless you know someone their do not bother applying for a job. Looks like the comment about management from NetApp were true

    Marketing Director Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nutanix.

    Interview

    I think the recruiting team is extremely unresponsive and not professional. The recruiter reached out to me after getting my resume and we had a good chat about my experience.
    He said he would get back to me after speaking with the hiring manager and i did not hear back from more than 2 weeks. I contacted him to ask for a status update and he sent me some question from the hiring manager regarding my experience. I promptly responded to his email with the details and its been 2 weeks and still no response from them. I have asked for an update and still no response.
     When you are recruiting for a senior position, you need to provide an update to the candidate. If the decision is not to go ahead, that too needs to be communicated by the recruiter. This behavior of absolutely going silent is not good.
