Senior Web Systems Administrator Interview

Senior Web Systems Administrator
Ashburn, VA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at AOL in January 2007.

Interview Details – HR contacted did a cursory phone interview. Had two on site interviews 1:1 with manager which was to breif me of the job details and gage my communication skills, attitude etc.

The second interview was with several team members doing the work. Much more technical and very specific questions on problem solving, logical thinking and people issues under pressure. In situation X how would you solve this, What if the problem looked like X & Y, how would you determine which the problem was. Unix comman line, Tomcat and Apache configuration. SSL configuration of Wen and Java application.

Interview Question – If the customer was on the phone angry and pressuring to get the system back online but you didn't know what the issue was how would you deal with the situation   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very simple bands depending on experience. Slots in nature. Yrs exp = $$$ to $$$. Some of the slots we unusual and seemed to be made up on the fly by management. Overall thoiugh very eassy. Benefits are excellent
