    Good office technology, good fun place to work.
    You can make a difference here, willing to try new ideas
    Transitioning from start up culture into well run mid sized firm. Not too bureaucratic.


    Location in Central Reading seems a strange choice. However, next to the station so not too bad.

    Reliance on one software solution. May need to diversify to reduce dependency risk.

    Advice to Management

    As you grow avoid building unnecessary bureaucracy. EMC is the example of how not to grow.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CommVault (Sydney).


    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.   1 Answer
