    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at EBSCO (Birmingham, AL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter, but at the time, wasn't sure I was in the market. The time between the initial contact and the ultimate interview arrangement was a few months, which was perfect, as this period encompassed Christmas and New Years. The interview included team leads as well as the manager, which I thought was a plus. It also included a quiz on database queries/structure, which I also thought was a plus, and showed that the company was serious about getting the right person for the particular job.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about what kind of specific query would I use to achieve a specific data result.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate as I was pleased with the offer. The nicest thing was that the response was very quick, and by that same afternoon, I had the offer.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at EBSCO (Birmingham, AL) in September 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was fine and quick. The job inself was not defined and expectations were set by folks who did not know a thing about the technology. The management was totally out of touch with technology. The company retains employees for a long time and it's like a mafia of who know who.

    Negotiation

    The manager who negotiated salary with me was excellent and did a great job in trying to keep me happy.
