    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hostway in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very, rigorous. Several phone interviews, in person interviews, plus a "homework" assignment which included the creation of a powerpoint presentation, a web landing page and several PPC ads

    Interview Questions
    • Question regarding what I like to do in my spare time. I found it somewhat unprofessional,   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate a higher salary when they had initially said they could not go any higher. I was also able to negotiate less time in San Antonio and more time in my home town which meant less commuting and more working from home. Overall there was some give and take although I don't feel that they were 100% honest during the process with what they COULD do, only about what they would do. Big difference.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Hostway in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    First a guy from an HR agency asked me if I am interested in the company and what they do and I agreed to send him my recent CV. After that before the interview they asked me to choose from 3 different problems and to solve one of them at home and send it to them. After that they invited me for an interview. There were 6 people interviewing me - 4 of them at the interview site and 2 were connected with us by a teleconference call. They asked me many different but not very difficult questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing to be noted really maybe except one of the the problems they gave me to choose from and make it at home - of implementing an algorithm for Directed Cyclic Graph, which finds the paths with a given cost between two nodes. There were few variations of that problem including finding the path with minimum cost between two nodes.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate my salary and almost nothing else.

    Linux Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Hostway in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Turned into a very unstructured interview as it rapidly became clear that the interviewer did not want to hire me because of my age - it seemed he expected me to want to sit behind a desk and tell people what to do rather than get "stuck in". I've never been that type of person, but he wasn't going to be persuaded.

    Interview Questions
    • Gave a detailed exam but didn't allow me to complete it. Many questions were of the type that you're refer to documentation to answer.   Answer Question
