    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Data Domain.

    Interview Details

    Fairly straight-forward when HR contacted to set-up for an in-person interview. Once I showed up, a personnel introduced herself but wasn't clear what her role was, asked a few basic questions about my general work experience. After a brief conversation, she got up to go get the hiring manager. Fifteen minutes went by (and I was beginning to get worried that they had forgotten about me in the conference room). Finally a guy shows up and unexpectedly told me that there has been a mistake--the job was no longer available. In utter shock, I said "Oh, well that's strange." In which he obnoxiously replied "Not really--not in this day and age!" I thanked him and left. He provided no apologies, no display of fault or embarrassment.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Data Domain in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    applied on-line, then had an employee forward my resume to HR. Did a prescreen interview with another Sr Software Engineer, followed up by a phone interview with the hiring manager. A week+ went bye and then I was brought in for 3hrs of scheduled on-site interviews (lasted 4hrs). A week later, I was contacted and asked to come in for a second round of on-site interviews as I was under consideration for a second position - who had just had a new manager assigned. A week after that the offer was made and accepted. Job started 2 weeks after that.

    Pre-Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Data Domain in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    THey started with 2 phone screen interviews, I was then invited in for 2 face to face interviews with managers, and 1 with a potential team member. If I would have been invited back for day 2, I would have met with a sales mgr and to give a presentation. They were very friendly and causal interviews, they did stick surprise tech questions in the middle and they did catch me surprise.

    I was surprised that I wasn't invited back for day 2. I wish I would have gotten some feedback, I would have liked working there.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Data Domain in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Phone Interview: Discuss current position and previous projects
    On Site Interview: Was asked random unrelated questions. Interviewers seemed like it was a pain to be away from desk and interviewing someone. Turns out they're only looking to hire overqualified people for cheap. Due to NDA can't really mention the questions asked.

    Senior Software Eng Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Data Domain in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was 1 hour - question about databases, multi-threading
    Site interview was 4 hours -
    - implement a queue using stacks and code it
    - binary arithmetic - determine number of 1's in an integer
    - multithreading, os concepts, reverse linked list in place, - this interviewer stank and had an indian accent that was so strong, it was almost impossible to understand what he was saying
    - recursion - depth-first traversal, find a pair of numbers in a list of integers that result in a given sum

    All the interviewers were a bit unpleasant - the last one actually made the stmt to the extent of "Oh you're desperately looking for job huh?"

    Seemed like a bit of an unpleasant team personality-wise. This was the systems mgmt team.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Data Domain in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was undisciplined. They were unable to keep to a schedule. Some of the interviewers did not know what position I was applying for. No follow through on promises

    Most of the interview was spend talking about irrelevant topics, which made any preparation pointless.

    The technical questions were not hard per se. Two hours of relevant preparation would have been ample.

    Follow up with several Data Domain employees suggests this is a particular team problem.
