    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (San Jose, CA (US)).

    Interview

    First technical phone interview and after that 2-3 more technical interviews. First round was all about resume in that interviewer asked about all the projects that I worked on as well as technologies that are used. Interviewer wanted to know more about why a particular technology did you use and few other technical questions about technologies that are mentioned in resume.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (San Francisco, CA (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    About a 40 minute Phone Interview, then 5 in person technical interviews with members on the team, then 3 not so technical interviews with managers and other people we will work with. Pretty casual, laid back, each person had their own style and level of rigor.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (Madison, WI (US)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    First the higher-ups came in and asked me personal questions, such as, "Why do you want to work here?" "Where do you see yourself in the future with this company?" Then two programmers came in and asked me technical questions about programming and java. They said that if I could answer about half then I would be well off. The easiest question they asked me was, "What is a class?"

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (Denver, CO (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It was a two part interview process. The first interview was held at my school immediately after our career fair. This interview consisted of basic interview questions and was to gauge personality. The next part was a phone interview with one of their technical managers asking a problem solving question.

    Interview Questions

    • The number of calls in to the internal Helpdesk are very high. Support technicians report that the majority of their calls seem to come from users of the QueeQueg vacation database. Many problems are reported with QueeQueg from logins, browser issues to user education. The application is written in an ancient programming language that no one knows and modification of the program is not possible as we don’t own the source code. Also, we have a long term contract with the owners of the software so replacing it is not an option.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Seagate Technology.

    Interview

    Phone call screening, then on-site panel interviews of 90-minutes total, visiting different teams for 15-minutes each. More technical teams asked more difficult questions, particularly asking about resume projects. Dress was casual, so dress slightly above causal.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Seagate Technology.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a manager based in Paris: the first time after 19:00 saying that he will call back the next day. Second time still after 19:00 without any response from my part.

    One week later I receive a mail from a senior recruiter that started to say that I will never get a job if I do not disclose my salary to him and this will happen to all companies for which I would like to work with, thus no one will hire me.

    After this experience, I would say to stay away from this company. I would not like to work for this kind of people.
