Average Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (Bloomington, MN) in Nov 2020

Interview

The entire interview process was conducted with Zoom. The first interview was used to weed out people with basic personality questions. They only want over-achievers. I made it past this round. I spoke to the hiring manager during the second round. This included detailed technical questions about semiconductor processing and 6 Sigma problem solving tasks. I was not offered the job.

Average Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (Pune)

Interview

Pathetic. Not recommended. There interview panel and talent acquisition team are dump. There talent acquisition team called me because my resume matching there requirement. Interview start at 9 AM. Coding test. Then followed by 3 technical round for 1 hour each. Then 1 more lady come and took my salary details and said that HR team is busy so we will call you. In evening senior HR called me and discuss salary part. He said that your are almost selected. I will discuss with US team and will send offer letter tomorrow. On another day they get asked me to share all documents. No call on that day. And on next day they send mail that 'We have got good technical feedback for your knowledge and skill but this role requires someone with hands-on expertise in XXX technology'. Are they crazy??? My resume do not mentioned about that technology. It means I don't experience on it. So it was already clear. Also in 3-4 technical round no one ask me about it. HR called me and say you are almost selected. And next day you send mail that technical knowledge is good but lack in 1 technology. I was not expecting such behavior from such big organization. I will not recommend any one.

Average Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (Bangalore) in Sep 2015

Interview

Discussion started with a telephonic round where they checked only basic OOPS concepts. Next day I asked to be in seagate office for a F2F where it was a walk-in with 18 candidates. They took 3 more technical rounds of discussion where they were asking basic C++ and problem solving skills. To be frustrating they are repeating questions in each round. The first round was there from 10:30AM to 11:30 and I waited inside the conf room for around an hour for second round. Second round completed by 1:30 and they asked to eat something and come. There were no food served (it was a Saturday) and cafeteria even closed. So I waited there expecting there will be some manager round or HR round. at 3.15 they called for next discussion and again it as technical and even too basics and repeating questions . It went for an hour and the guy asked me to write a builder pattern code in sheet. I told I cant to do this now, we can discuss on a problem and can discuss how builder pattern will be used. I was too tired by that time. Soon he asked me to leave the room as he is done. HR came and asked me whether I have done, and I told Yes, She went back and checked the panel and asked me to leave that day. I was expecting positive from them and so far no reply

I had my first interview with 2 senior staff engineers. It was very informal. Basically, we talked about my past experience and the nature of the job at Seagate. Subsequently, I was interviewed by a couple of senior directors. The talks were quite informal and similar in nature as well.
