Difficult Interview

IT Help Desk Interview

IT Help Desk
Longmont, CO

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Marvell Technology in January 2014.

Interview Details – I had 4 interviews, 2 of them were with two people at a time. The scheduling was odd and forced me to sit in my car during lunch two days in a row which made it very difficult to concentrate. Looking back I really wished I had been able to interview under different circumstances. The people I spoke with were great to talk to, I appreciated their professionalism and could tell they had a great deal of technical expertise. From the information I gathered during the different interviews which were also from different locations, it seemed like it would be a good job.

Interview Question – typical questions about most difficult customer, biggest achievement and some technical questions on help desk troubleshooting   Answer Question
