    Technical Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Splunk (San Francisco, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    My application and interview process happened fast and smooth. It took only 2-3 weeks from my friend's referral to the official offer.

    The recruiter scheduled a phone interview with a manager the same day she got my resume from my friend who works there.

    2 days later, the manager phone interviewed me.

    A week later, I went to their San Francisco office for the onsite interviews, with 5 people including the hiring manager.

    About another week later, they had me do a Skype interview with a vice president, who could not make it to my onsite interviews.

    The next day, they presented the verbal offer, and the final offer after a little negotiation.

    Questions they asked
    1. What were my experiences on Agile and Scrum?
    2. What were the challenges I met during Agile transformation?
    3. Why was I interested in the job?

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Splunk (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    A friend referred me to Splunk recently. Almost immediately, the recruiter contacted me and requested to schedule an onsite for as early as two days later. I was impressed at how quickly they were able to put me through to an onsite, but didn't quite work with my schedule since it was around the holidays. I came in just after the new year for an onsite, and had a relatively standard one on one tech interview with two interviews, lunch, then two more interviews. They tested both coding and design, and I got to talk to the hiring manager during lunchtime and ask questions about what it's like to work there. All the interviewers were really nice during the interview and the recruiter was quite understanding when it came to my timeline for the offer.
