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

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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Campbell, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Barracuda Networks.

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    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.

    Technical Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Campbell, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Campbell, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Barracuda Networks in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    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.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Barracuda Networks in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    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   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    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.

    Inside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Campbell, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Campbell, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Barracuda Networks in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Company had a pier contact who was a screener and not involved in hiring at all, and was the only contact given. Company acted excited and interviewed me all the way up to V.P. of Sales. Even that person seemed excited during interview, problem became where to place me. When discussing available positions, came to realize that the job advertised did not exist. They were were hoping to grow the business to the point of creating the job. I was over qualified for everything else, by far. So when it was realized that they could not park me due to the expense until the job was created, I literally heard nothing back from them. No responses to requests for follow-up, no courtesy call after all of the frenzy of shot gunning me through extensive interviews all in a short period of time. Not even a response to my email and phone inquiries after the excitement they projected at getting me in front of all of the "right" people. They took each interview and grew it by over an hour past expected time, asking if they could bring more people down, that the fit was perfect, etc. Then POOF! not a word.

    A very young and aggressive company. They look like a lot of fun to work for, but their level of professionalism with outside professionals, needs a lot of work. They have to remember, it is a small world, that same person may end up working for a direct customer, or for a reseller who makes the decisions. We all remember...
