    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Commvault.

    Interview

    Received an email asking me to take an online test with a webcam watching. The test also spies on the contents of your computer (set up a dummy account). Testing is obviously outsourced to India. Spelling errors, bad grammar in the instructions, plus the test environment is very buggy. You get an hour, and I probably spent a third of that fighting with the test itself. Afterwards I never heard from anyone again. No email or phone call. Very unprofessional company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Commvault (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First Round of the interview process. Took an online coding test with a group of other interviewers. We all brought out own laptops. The test was 45 minutes, 3 questions. No outside help was allowed and you are monitored at all times. Their coding environment had no syntax aids or autocomplete and because you could not look up language specific functions or syntaxes, the biggest challenge for me was trying to remember how to do specific things in code by memorization, something I have never done. The problems themselves were not difficult, but relying on memorization of coding syntax is necessary and not knowing them costs you dear time, something you do not have a lot of.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Commvault (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had 3 coding rounds. The process also involved discussing on design problems and optimizations and discussion on my prior experience. The interview was time bound and I was constantly engaging with the engineer to project my thought process. There's minimal to none support in solving the problem. Attention to coding detail is really important. Having good knowledge in distributed systems and kernel space is a plus
