I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (Bloomington, MN) in Sep 2021

Interview

First round was with two managers, pretty easy and just wanted to know about college and interest in the position. Second interview was 3 30-minute interviews with two managers and the engineering team. Half of the manager interview questions were riddles. Also D shift gets a 15% shift differential, so be sure to account for that when negotiating salary.

Interview Questions
  • Q: have you ever hated one of your previous jobs?
  • Q: If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (Bloomington, MN) in Mar 2021

Interview

First two managers called for like a phone screen and basically wanted to know how interested I was. Then I was called back for the final interview which was 30 minutes with each of the 2 managers and then 30 minutes with the team. Team interview was chill, don't worry about that one. The interview with the two managers was half behavioral and half logic/riddles. They absolutely didn't go over my resume at all it was a bit strange and it seemed their decision was based on the logic questions. Each manager asked 2 logic questions, its common riddles you can google. It was a bit annoying because I believe anyone can get the answer within 10 minutes at most but there's def the pressure to get the answer within a minute. What really was annoying is that these were popular riddles so if someone got it right it could have just been because they heard it before.

Interview Questions
  • Riddle 1: A nail and hammer cost 1.10 together. Hammer costs a dollar more, how much does the nail cost? A: 5 cents. easy. Riddle 2: You have 8 balls and an old school scale. All the balls weigh the same except for one (heavier), how do you find out which one is the heaviest? You can only use the scale twice. ANS: makes sense once you hear it, common riddle, google for answer Riddle 3: 3 lightswitches, find out which one connects to the lightbulb in the other room. ANS: also common but you use the temperature of the light bulb Riddle 4: 3 people, is an unmarried person looking at a married person? ANS: yes
