    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Splunk (San Francisco, CA) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Referred by an employee, quick HR screen within a day or so, chat with hiring manager the next day, interviews with 5 team members (in one day) within two weeks.

    The process was pretty quick and efficient, and the communications were good. Everybody I talked to, in person or over the phone, was welcoming, knowledgeable and straightforward, and questions were relevant to the position.
