    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Commvault in May 2017.

    Interview

    Was first contacted by recruiter. Met with the recruiter for a couple hours. He briefed me on the company, the position, and management philosophy. Then we talked about my background, current responsibilities, career objectives, etc.

    It didn't feel like an interview at all...more like a conversation.

    Recruiter recommended a face to face with the Commvault Interview team at their head quarters office. Company flew me in, had a car pick me up at the airport and arranged for a hotel room nearby.

    Each person I interviewed with were A-Players, very focused and aligned on company objectives, inspirational, enjoyed working at the company...in technology working at the same company for more than 5 years is rare. At Commvault, there were many people that have worked there for 8+ years.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Commvault (Tinton Falls, NJ) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The Legal Department was very friendly but based on the conversation it was clear I was over qualified. They were looking for a Paralegal and not a Senior Paralegal. It seems like a great company to work for though.

    2 Telephonic Interviews. Onsite Interview after a test. Onsite interview has a code test 3-4 interviews.

    The first onsite-interviewer was extremely rude. He was cutting me short, smiling when I answered wrong, was telling me I was wrong before I could finish writing some code. He left before his time was over. I had a feeling he was not interested in recruiting me, right from the beginning.

    Most of the interviewers were asking Threading questions, which I initially claimed I had no experience in.

    Interview

    It was the first technical interview, and I and bunch of people had to solve some programming questions in a big room. We had 90 minutes to solve 3 algorithm questions. The questions are not that easy or not that hard. But you can use internet freely during the test.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were related to data structure problems such as linked list, tree, etc. You code in a web browser, and it's tricky. It is basically just like using a memo pad.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Commvault (Gainesville, FL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Commvault had visited our campus for the career fair. Some of us got a mail the same night to attend a programming challenge the next day at the University.
    There were three programs with 5,6,7 marks. They instructed us to solve any one first and then attempt the others.
    Question were : Convert a number to binary, Find if a loop exists in a Linked List. Can't recall the third one.
    It was a online compiler type interview. So you had to write, compile execute and pass their tests.

    I then got a mail for a telephonic. The guy asked me just one question.
    char *a="something";
    Is this valid or invalid. Give reasons.
    Then what would
    strlen(a) return?

    The next question was what is sizeof.

    That's it. Simple basic stuff.
