    Interview

    I had two phone interviews, then an in-person interview.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of basic interview questions. Few questions were related to the position, describe a time you had trouble working with a large data and how did you solve it. Describe a time you had to make a quick decision without notify your supervisor. There was a small test with 3 questions at the end to test your knowledge about vLookup and Pivot table. Last questions was a bit tricky.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Barracuda Networks (Campbell, CA).

    Interview

    Hiring and interview process were very misleading. They told me I would make a certain amount of commission on each sale and then within two weeks of being hired the CEO decided to lower the commission for the team I was on by half a point. They pay was already extremely low so had I have been told the commisssion was going to be reduced in two weeks i would not have taken the job.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions asked in the interview. My interviewer seemed to not care one way or another about my answers and would simply hire me if I was willing to take such low pay.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I attempted to negotiate a higher rate based on my experience but never even receieved a call back from my highering manager. He simply ignored my request.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Barracuda Networks (Campbell, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I was called by the Support Trainer who set up an interview. He then met me and we talked for a few minutes, then he gave me a pre-employment exam. The exam asked basic Linux and Networking questions. I then talked with the hiring manager and filled out some paperwork. They contacted me two days later letting me know that they had an offer letter waiting for me. I started working a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • The part of the test that I missed the most questions on was the port to protocol knowledge. Make sure you know basic ports, like 22 is for SSH; 53 is for DNS; etc....   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The VP explained the compensation and advancement structure to me. They have a defined career path which makes sense. They originally offered me a lower hourly rate than what I was expecting but I was able to negotiate a rate that we were both comfortable with - I am newly married so I am glad that I was able to get a little extra than they originally offered.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Barracuda Networks (Campbell, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Actually, hired during the first visit. After the initial Interview, I was asked if I could stay longer and I met with two other people. I'm guessing if you are done after the first interview, you may be competing with other candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • Will be asked about Linux CLI commands - extensively   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    If you have some need for time off in the future, specify this need during the negotiation phase. They do not allow time off without pay so you need PTO or any time off is not approved.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Barracuda Networks (Campbell, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 2 people, a lead tech and the manager. The lead tech portion was what you would expect, about your knowledge and experience. The manager portion was a whole horse and pony show about how you get raises and advance in position, through a series of tests and learning new products. It's nice to have it all spelled out but it's absolutely rigid, there is no flexibility. Plus, the manager, when he gave it, gave the impression that he gave that speech (with illustrations!) very, very frequently, which is an indicator of high turnover.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you expect in salary?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation, you either accept their offer or you don't.
