    Technical Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Brunswick, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Commvault (New Brunswick, NJ) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email and then I had someone (who was obviously not a technical person) ask me the same 2 questions that every other place asks which are about dns and https. She then seemed to harp on the fact that I had no experience in tape backups. I don't know if any IT techs who do so, it was basically a waste of time. I guess having over 6 years professional experience and a bachelors in IT means nothing.

    Software Engineer Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Commvault (Jersey City, NJ) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to CommVault through a referral. They got back to me quite soon and sent me an online programming quiz. It was hard to finish as there were too many questions and too little time.Also, i was not aware that i would not be able to go back to Part A after the timer was up. 60 marks of the test were assigned to the web programming quiz questions. Make sure to complete Part A on time.
    They haven't gotten back to me after i completed the test.

    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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Commvault (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was through referral. I got an email asking to select multiple time slot for interview and they would get back to me with a fixed time. I got there prompt response in 24 hours. The interview was dot on time on phone. It started with basic questions what are you doing right now? Tell me your experience. He did not spend any time on what the company was doing what my role was going to be etc etc, got directly into asking me technical questions in C++. I said that my proficiency in C is more but I have basic knowledge of C++. He told me to rate myself on a scale of 1 to 10 . 10 being the highest expertise.

    The question started with difference between C and C++. What is inheritance, have you worked on debugging tools. What is inline function, difference between macro and inline function, public private protected. Difference between thread and process. Which is better and why?

    He was going into more detail and twisted the questions very well. I had limited knowledge of C++ so it did not go too far. In 1 hour I was done and he said the HR will get back. Hopping for the best but it's not looking so good.
