    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at IPSoft.

    Interview Details

    Found the job posting on LinkedIn. Responded to it, and 2 days later had a phone screen with the HR recruiter. Had a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager a week after initial submission. Hiring manager was a little intense, but interview was nothing crazy or unbearable. Was asked for my references the next day, and knew I was going to get the role.

    Negotiation Details
    I was able to get them to highest amount possible for the role. It was still below my previous pay, but being unemployed, I didn't have much room for leverage.

    Linux Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at IPSoft in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager refused to entertain an interview unless I revealed my current and prior salaries. There was no budging whatsoever on that condition, and failing that, I was not considered. I strongly encouraged her to reassess that approach, but instead I was told, "That’s not how we do things here, in looking at salary we take into account a)where your level of experience falls in relation to other members of the team with similar skill sets, and b)where you currently stand with compensation as to make a reasonable increase. Good luck in your search."

    Companies in-the-know determine if the candidate is worth further discussion based on screening interviews, even just one, and from there can use any of several algorithmic methods to determine an appropriate salary offer.

    Interview Questions
    • No technical questions were asked; the sole exposure was to the hiring manager who insisted on a prior salary.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Submitted application online, then I was contacted by one of the recruiters. We arranged a date for a phone interview. In the phone interview they asked basic question about why you want the position and what is your current knowledge about the technologies you might encounter. After that, I got contacted and a in-person interview was arranged. The interview was very straight forward, you meet members of the team and they ask questions about your interests and how you can contribute to the company, and also ask questions about certain technical scenarios. After that interview they will contact you with a response.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at IPSoft in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    New York office will call with a quick phone screen (not much technical on this call), followed by a sit down in the Austin office. The group I interviewed with were polite and interested in my past experience. The second half of my interview didn't take place since management was putting out a fire with a customer. I got a second call for a Telephony position which went nowhere once they knew I interviewed for the service desk a couple weeks prior.

    Interview Questions
    • The following topics were covered:

      - A few questions on routing protocols (BGP,OSPF)
      - VTP
      - STP... unfortunately the guy (a lead from the support team) asking questions didn't know how a root bridge was selected.
      - basic Linux commands

    Office Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at IPSoft in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contacted via LinkedIn; then ignored for over 30 days.

    My experience with IPSoft was interesting. I was not actively seeking a job, yet the recruiter contacted me, only to ignore my response for 30+ days. Maybe this is common, but as an office manager, I found this to be a clear indicator that this company does not think of their employees as human beings, rather, they view their employees more as worker-drones. I can only imagine this had led to IPSoft's international success. I, personally, do not work well with these type of people.

    So if you want to be successful, go for it; IPSoft is a legitimate business. However if you want to work somewhere where you are valued and can develop your career, it my humble opinion that there are much better options to pursue. It is easy to focus on the dollar signs, but do not forget to look at the whole package: this is somewhere you'd be spending at least 40 hours per week.
