    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NetApp (Research Triangle Park, NC (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Straight forward process. Was contacted by a recruiter via email. Scheduled two phone interviews which were hardly even interviews. Very conversational and laid back. The recruiter just explained the role and asked about my background. Went in for an onsite interview the following week. Very straightforward laid back interview. Met with the manager and a member of the team. Both were very friendly.

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NetApp.

    Interview

    I had one phone screening, a phone interview with the hiring manager, an in-person with four team members, a presentation for three team members and another manger over the span of 2 months. The team members were great and the interview process was thorough but not hard if you prepare. After several attempts to get in contact with the recruiter I never heard back on them moving forward with another candidate. Great company but the recruitment process was not impressive.

    Director of Corporate Strategy and Corporate Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    This 'interview' with NetApp was quite peculiar and not really much of an 'interview' per se -- but it is important for me to share this experience with my fellow Glassdorians in case they find themselves in a similar predicament.

    I had never applied to or interviewed at NetApp before. Out of the blue, an executive recruiter reached out to me saying that a Senior Director had come across my profile and was interested in me because of my background in Management Consulting and Corporate Strategy with a strong focus on M&A. I was not looking for a job... but I thought I'd explore this opportunity. The recruiter further went to to say that the hiring team "very much liked my profile" and they were eager to speak with me.

    Then he (the recruiter) had me fill out all these lengthy pre-screening administrative questions and said that he would circle back with some interview dates & times. That was the last I heard from NetApp. After weeks, I have sent numerous follow ups, but still no response.

    "Ghosting" a candidate is never cool and it makes the company look very bad. It is downright unprofessional and discourteous, especially given that I didn't even apply to this role; they had approached me. Furthermore, having me do all this paperwork and even acknowledge this is profoundly shameful. Just think about this: if this is how they treat candidates, just imagine how they would treat their own employees! Today's candidates are tomorrow's leaders and they will keep in mind unpleasant experiences perhaps even abstaining from doing business with companies that treat people like second-class citizens.

    Finally, in a twist if irony, not joining NetApp was blessing in disguise because this other large cap tech company --- a competitor of NetApp --- made me an offer I could't refuse. I recently came to learn that NetApp tried to sell itself to my new company but we declined to acquire NetApp largely due to many red flags including its troubling mistreatment of people. It is a small world out there and I hope both potential employers and employees with treat each other with respect, dignity, professionalism, courtesy and compassion.

    Product Owner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NetApp (Boulder, CO (US)).

    Interview

    After a telephone interview, the process was 3 back to back interviews with 3-4 interviewers each time. Nerve wracking.

    The first interview kicked off with the interviewer who represented engineering quickly moving to shut down any effective communication by setting out to trap me using a technical strawman that had nothing to do with what they were after.

    The rest of the interviews were really uncomfortable, I never recovered and now wish I had just walked out after the first five exchange.

    Total waste of time, shook my confidence and I cringe just to remember. All evidence suggests a toxic culture.
