    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hitachi ID Systems (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Your resume needs to get through a keyword filter before it reaches a managers desk. You will receive a telephone interview with highly technical questions followed by a 4 hour (time limit) in person exam.

    Interview Questions

    • Telephone Interview:

      Linux

      How do you change a user’s password?

      How do you add a user?

      IIS

      Do you know what a virtual directory is?

      How do you change or restore permissions if you get a "permission denied" error?

      There was a question about GPO and Active directory.

    • Written Exam:

      Part 0 - Document and record

      Part 1 - Windows Server - IIS

      Setup cgi application calc.exe (not installed correctly), needed to activate Anonymous access to get rid of the 401.2 error. Correct the jpg filename to gif to match the html file. You also search for calc.exe and the application files were available on other parts of the PC (this could test your knowledge to see if you know the correct place to put the files; afterwards I realized I've worked with cgi applications from the Program Files folder and not from the TEMP directory *palm slap*).

      Part 2 – Linux
      There is a linux server at xx.xx.xx.xx address that has the ability to ssh
      Use telnet to connect to this server but only from subnet xx.xx.yy.xx as the client only wants traffic to this server coming from that subnet. Your objective is to place an empty file in a directory.

      Part 3 - Program
      Using a variety of languages with environments that are readily available take a key value pair with several examples into a text file (I thought the examples were in JSON, but it wasn’t as straight forward as that”:
      “user” “sam” = “email” : “sam@hotmail.com”,
              “as400name” : “speedy”,
              “IPaddress”:”xxx.xxx.xx.xx”
              “other variable” : “some variable”

      Create a text file with these values and have the application run through the values to find “as400name” when the “user” value is “sam”.
      So your program would start like: ./ProgrameName filename.txt

      Demonstrate:
      Reading and writing to files
      loops
      variables and scope
      if and else statements

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hitachi ID Systems (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Several stupid technical questions by email, then like 8 very easy questions by phone, then a more difficult test on their ugly office in Montreal. They are not very polite, they don't answer any email after the interview even though I solved everything. They are not professionals, at least they should answer my emails.

    Infrastructure Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hitachi ID Systems (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process is rather long; it is conducted by two VPs (the one of your department and the one of HR), so getting them both in the same place at the same time is tough (teleconferencing is also used). They are looking to see whether you are the kind of technical person who is very personable, once you get to the in-person interview. The technical test focuses more on your problem-solving process than performance, though getting the major parts of it right is required.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about something you have hacked   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation is resisted. Everyone gets a standard starting wage, and a standard raise for the promotion they promise you within a year. Getting anything beyond this is difficult and complicated.
