    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview was network heavy which makes sense given the product. Basic networking, network routing, and various other types of communication methods. Overall it was a pretty good interview and conducted in a friendly manner.

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Data Domain (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Data Domain (Research Triangle Park, NC) in September 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    No real negotiation, I had laid out what my salary minimum had to be and it was "juiced" with information relative to 10% annual bonus (paid out quarterly), and a $ figure for restricted stock assignments (paid out over 4yrs of employment)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Data Domain (Washington, DC) in February 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Data Domain (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Data Domain in March 2012.

    Interview

    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.
