    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (Shakopee, MN (US)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online in July 2018. Got an email from a recruiter with some screening questions. Never heard back from him even after following up multiple times. Then suddenly got a col from hiring manager without notice and scheduled a phone interview. Phone interview was easy. He told me that he already filled the position but another manager might have a position and he is taking interview instead of the other manager. I told him that I have other onsite interviews lined up so wanted the update at least a week. Never heard back from him. Still no answer after 1 month

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Seagate Technology.

    Interview

    Applied for the job online. Initially had a preliminary interview with HR, asking basic questions about my background. Was invited for an in person interview. The in person consisted of meeting with 4 different people, each individually. They each asked the same questions about my background, work experience, projects etc. Followed up a week later with HR to get a status update on the interview process and got no response, waited over a week and emailed again with no response. So I waited another week then emailed the manager who I interviewed with and got no response. To drive 3 hours each way for the interview only to not even get a response back is very disappointing, even if I didn't get the job they should have the decency to respond or let me know.

    Firmware Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Shakopee, MN (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (Shakopee, MN (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Got a call from a recruiter for basic phone screening followed by call interview with Sr. Manager. He asked me some basic questions like Arrays over Linked Lists and advantages of Binary trees, basic OS questions like process scheduling and priority inversion and some other non-technical stuff. A week and a half later had an onsite interview with Senior Managers and Directors. Very nice people. Pretty laid back. They just want to know you and expect honest answers. 2 rounds technical followed by lunch followed by 2 behavioural rounds with the directors and senior managers. All technical stuff was from basic OS, debugging and comp arch. The last thing was a C test. Relatively simple for anyone straight out of college. The test contained questions on ISR, storage classes, function pointers, arrays, structs and unions, preprocessor directives and basic bit manipulation.

    Overall I think technical forms only about 1/4 of their selection process!

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Seagate Technology.

    Interview

    Got the first interview with HR. Question was direct and simple, didn't went through the resume but only focused on how my experience relate to the job requirement. Didn't think I could get through but got the second interview a month later with hiring manger. His phone talk was very positive, and asked about my concerns and my time schedule etc. I though I had it but never hear back. Emailed both HR and manager but got no response. I guess that is a no.
