    IT Support Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cloud Sherpas (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    My recruiter was awesome, and always available. He kept me up to date during the entire process. One month seemed long to me, because I'm use to only doing one interview. However, I spoke with the entire IT staff. This made it less stressful the first day on the job. I must say it was all worth it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cloud Sherpas in February 2015.

    Interview

    Thorough. I believe I had 4 or 5 interviews. 1 HR, 2 tech screenings, 1 sales meeting, and one technical presentation. Aside from a time when I was asked to write a cash-register application over the weekend, and was turned down for the job because I was over qualified (true story) this was the most difficult interview process of my career. It was worth it. And, it made getting hired feel like quite an accomplishment. I actually like working for a company knowing that my colleagues went through a similar screening. I know that they are well qualified.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Cloud Sherpas in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a quick response back. The recruiting organization is top notch and kept me updated and involved through the entire process. By far the most professional group I worked with during this job change.
    The interview process was average to slightly above average in difficulty and definitely very thorough. I spoke with Technical Architects, Technical Leads, Engagement Managers and Sr Consultants. What I found unique, is that the process was not only to make sure I was the right fit for Cloud Sherpas, but also allowed the flexibility for determining the best position for my skills and my career goals. ( A product of phenomenal growth)
    Everyone I spoke with was very passionate about the company and the culture, was very professional and took the process seriously. This provided me a great deal of confidence that Cloud Sherpas was indeed a high caliber organization with quality people throughout the organization.
    Having interviewed with several top rated consulting firms, what really separated Cloud Sherpas from all others, for me, was the smoothness of the process (process is pretty important for consulting companies) and the quality and professionalism of the people in every step of the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical questions relating to APIs and ETL were the most difficult for me due to my lack of detailed experience in those areas.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cloud Sherpas.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick. I went through 4 phone interviews with different members of the team in various roles. After the first interview I would say it was less than a month before I was hired. Once hired I went through an on boarding process which was excellent and well put together. The entire hiring process was made simple due to the guidance of the HR department and management.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions where pretty straight forward for a consulting position. They really wanted to get to know you and how you as an individual would handle various situations.   Answer Question

    Human Resources Position Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Cloud Sherpas (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    The entire process took a while. Initial contact took place before the holidays in December and I received an offer at the end of February. First contact was made by phone, second interview was also by phone. I had one in office interview where I essentially walked the manager through my previous work experience and applicable skills. Everyone was very friendly and honest during the process. I was contacted for a third phone interview with an out of state manager, however that interview never took place. A second out of state manager contacted me and then I had yet another phone recap with the manger who interviewed me in office. In total I had around 5 interviews. The recruiter also contacted me frequently via email which was a good sign.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't say there was a particularly difficult question, but they definitely want to know that you have some type of plan or vision for the future. Make sure you have a 5 year plan or something of the sort.   1 Answer

    Full Time - Non-Technical Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Cloud Sherpas in April 2014.

    Interview

    The beginning of the process went smoothly and quickly from person to person. There were many interviews, but I expected that based on the role and honestly they were great. People with different perspectives and insights to share, as well as varying questions, so nothing was repetitive. The time between the last interview and the offer was long, but they shared up front that a great deal was going on.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were about past or experiences, no crazy or trick questions. It was obvious that cultural fit and philosophy were important, so being able to genuine with responses was great.

      There were a few "have you done ____" and when I shared yes, the next question was what did you do or how would you do that here given what you have learned about us so far.
       
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There's not a lot of wiggleroom, but ranges are set upfront. Our PTO is non-negotiable, so save yourself time on that one.
