Data Domain Interview Questions & Reviews in Santa Clara, CA
Getting an Interview
Marketing Interview (Negative Experience)
I applied through an employee referral and 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.
Interview Question – No questions were asked Answer Question
Senior Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Data Domain in May 2012.
Interview Details – I had a phone screen first. Interviews asked were very basic, like memory mgmt, paging etc. also asked a few questions on Data structures and projects.
Next day, they asked me to come onsite for 1:1 interviews..
All the interviews were good, ppl were sensible and asked questions related to the position and/or what I had mentioned in my resume. Couple of interviewers also asked me to write C programs.
