    I have been working at CommVault as an intern for less than a year


    Open work environment, where everyone is reachable is good. Flexible in the sense that you can work on anything you want to (web/c++). People are very approachable and they pay well.


    Not the smartest bunch of people.

    Customer Support Engineer - Media Management Team Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Sydney (Australia)
    Anonymous Employee in Sydney (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CommVault.

    Interview Details

    Interview process start: 21st Aug 2014
    1st Phone Screen: 26th Aug 2014
    Response: 2nd Sept 2014

    Was approached by a recruitment consultant who asked basic technical questions on Windows, Networking, SAN Storage, and VMWare ( about 2-3 questions from each area ) and a brief of my previous experience. Then scheduled a face-to-face interview with the agency first, mainly a detailed discussion around the work history and some more basic technical questions starting where she left off on the phone.

    Filled up a form for CommVault which asked some technical and four behavioral questions around CommVault values ( basically examples from the past which will help to be efficient in the new role ).

    This form was reviewed by CommVault team and got a response through the consultant in 3-4 days that there will be a technical phone screen interview. This was a very detailed discussion to gauge the areas of my expertise and it went fairly well. Would advise the aspiring candidates to understand all the technologies they work with in full details. Things like RAID comparison, VMWare snapshots, CPU Architectures.

    Received a call from the consultant a week later that my application was not successful because of less expertise in Windows, which is correct because I am a Unix system admin : )

    Wishing all the best to the readers.

    Interview Questions
    • I have relatively very less experience with Windows, so basically all Windows questions were difficult for me ( although they might be basic ). For e.g. steps involved to promote a server to make it a domain controller etc.   Answer Question
