    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Seagate Technology in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had 9 interviews. All lasting between 20 minutes and 1 hour. The interviews were all different and I knew what to expect and what to answer when I was going into the next interview. All the interviews were phone interviews, Skype, and 1 in person interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked skills and personality questions. I had interviews with all different people so they could understand myself and who I am. I thought there was an unnecessary amount of interviews. They should have paneled them together and not made everyone separately interview me.   1 Answer

    Senior Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Seagate Technology.

    Interview

    I was interviewed via phone twice last one was excellent with the hiring manager. She and I were on completely the same page. I was invited into the company. I arrived at the time suggested and sat there for 35 minutes. The receptionist was trying very hard to be helpful however she had not been given clear directions either. Eventually the hiring manager came down to collect me and literally shouted at me as she had been waiting upstairs in the conference room. I told her that I had been there 10 minutes before the interview was due to begin. She didn't seem interested in hearing this and spoke with me briefly.
    I then met with six other individuals including one of the senior VPs. This man was incredibly rude. He kept getting up and walking around with his back to me. At one point he poured himself a glass of water but didn't offer me anything.

     When I left I received an email from the recruiter telling me they would be back in touch shortly. I never heard from them again.
