IT Systems Administrator Interview

IT Systems Administrator

I applied online and interviewed at ACN.

Interview Details – Was initially called via HR rep. Then a follow up with the Hiring Manager. All went well until I was then asked to come onsite to meet the team, which basically involved me on 1 end of the table, and 3 others on the team at the other. Each of them had 10-15 minutes to drill me with technical questions as everyone watched including the hiring manager. This was fairly uncomfortable and unreasonable I believe. Not to mention one of the team members was very arrogant and incorrect in his assumptions.

Interview Question – I dont recall any specifics, but it ranged from Exchange administration to VMware, to Altiris.   Answer Question

Senior Finance Manager Interview

Senior Finance Manager
Concord, NC

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at ACN in September 2008.

Interview Details – After applying online, I was contacted by the HR department to schedule a phone interview. This was a prescreening interveiw and i was given a good overview of the company and some hints on preparing for an interview with the hiring manager. It took 4 weeks to schedule the second interview which was at the corporate offices with the hiring manager. The interview lasted around an hour and was followed up 3 weeks later with a second interview. This consisted of one on one interviews with the CFO of International Operations, the CFO of North American operations and the VP of Finance. Two weeks later, an offer was made and was accepted the next week.
They have great benefits and a good business plan. Very laid back work environment. The company is filled with hardworking and intelligent people, but there is an overwellming feeling of instability in the longivity of emloyment because of the large amount of turnover in upper level management.

Interview Question – Tell me about your management style.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The only thing that I was able to negotiate was salary. The rest of the package was very acceptable.

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Wrocław (Poland)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ACN in February 2013.

Interview Details – The interview consisted in two telephone conversations, in case the applicant lives abroad, first step is just basic questions, on the salary you expect, if you're willing to move abroad and the scheduling of the actual interview.
The interview consist of 30 minutes, based on the resume they ask questions of your previous work experience, like what was the most difficult situation you faced and how did you solve it. You'll be asked to describe the workflow of a typical working day.
Name one of your strengths and weaknesses, also describe why do you think this would be the ideal position for you.
Lastly: where do you see yourself in two years?

Interview Question – There wasn't really a hard question related to this position. Maybe finding a good example for a difficult situation and how did you solve it is not that easy in the wave of the moment, but if you are prepared for these kind of questions it is not big deal.   View Answer
