    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Internap Network Services.

    Interview

    Someone from HR reached out after searching for my resume online. I briefly went over my skills with the rep and she scheduled the initial panel interview. After that interview was supposed to be another technical interview with 2 tier III Engineers, but since only 1 showed up on time, it ended up being two one hour interviews. Once that was complete, I was called to have a face to face interview which was another 1.5 hours.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Internap Network Services.

    Interview

    Started by networking with former co-worker. Referred to an Internap employee who might be able to help me network. The initial discussion really turned out to be an interview which I did not know going into it. This was good as we were having a discussion and I was not in interview mode. So my true nature really came through.

    Interview Questions

    • A strategy question for which the interviewers had predefined answer. My answer did not align with theirs. This did not prevent me from getting the position but rather changing the candidate position.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The salary negotiation was not difficult.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Internap Network Services (North Atlanta, GA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I was initially reached out to by a recruiter who had found my resume on Career Builder. She had introduced me over the phone to the company, and asked if I was interested in the position. She then set up a phone interview with the person who would later become my boss. He asked several questions about experience, asked technical questions such as advantages of non-multi-threaded processing, and asked questions such as personal interests. I honestly thought I had bombed (he has a great poker face, too). The recruiter called and told me that I was actually well liked (to my relief) and we set up an interview.

    The interview was actually 5 interviews. One was with my boss, one with a guy who later became an excellent resource in marketing, and 3 with people who would become my team-mates on this new team.

    The first, my future boss walked in with an arm-full of components out of an old workstation or server, and asked me to identify them.

    Second was the guy from marketing, whom I discussed (and diagrammed) the finer points of an infrastructure of a personal project of mine, and was actually able to shed light on some smaller bugs I had been experiencing. It was actually a lot of fun.

    Third, fourth and fifth were future team mates and were really just to see if the chemistry worked. Then the recruiter checked in to see if everything went well, then I left.

    I had to track down the email address of my future boss as it seems a few email addresses don't match the typical nomenclature, but I did and sent a "thank you" email, as is standard.

    I received a (positive) response a few days later.

    Interview Questions

    • The diagramming was the most unexpected, though breaking it down and discussing the finer points with someone so technical was not only fun, but very enlightening and led to some major shifts in how the application worked to improve performance.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was somewhat simple. I accepted lower pay than asking as my interview was originally for a part time position, but full-time with benefits was offered.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Internap Network Services (San Francisco, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    It was a good process with good people as I came with recommendations from known associates in the business. Interviewed by phone for positions in Costa Mesa and Bay Area in California.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult or unexpected. It was all smooth until an offer came, which is where things fell apart and their otherwise high degree of professionalism ended.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Declined because they offered the same amount I was already making, yet I was looking at housing that would be $1000 MORE per month for living BELOW my current and already understated living arrangements.

    What shocked me is that despite knowing what I was making and being fully cognizant of the cost of living, the gentleman making an offer tried to tell me he was making a great offer. Further, I was sent an email for the offer, which would also entail me moving my family across country, all on my own costs, and expected me to be working in LESS than two weeks.

    I can fairly suspect that this is among the reasons why the position had not been filled in over six months.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Internap Network Services in February 2009.

    Interview

    The internal recruiting organization is rather poor, and doesn't seem to understand the business unit's needs very well. But once you get past the gatekeeper things go a lot better.

    The staff interviews are pretty informal, and involved 4 different people. That part took just a couple of hours. The hiring manager talked some about the nature of the position, introduced the other team members who were involved in the interview, and then left us alone to discuss whatever came up. Each person had a different area of specialization that he/she focused on, but it appeared that the goal was to see if personalities meshed. Everyone was very forthright about answering questions about the company.

    The work culture is pretty relaxed, but people take their responsibilities seriously. Lots of responsibility is taken by the front-line people in the department.

    Interview Questions

    • If you are in a situation where another department has promised to do something for you, and they repeatedly fail to meet the commitment, how would you handle it? If the person failing the commitments is higher up than you in the organization, would that make a difference?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They seem to be severely limited by their HR department in terms of what they can change in their offers. The benefits package is excellent, however, so a slightly lower pay rate is more than acceptable if you consider the quality of life factors (like starting with 4 weeks of paid leave per year).

    I dd not negotiate as this was my first real step in the door for this industry.
