    Systems Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MySpace (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume and got called for a phone screen interview. The non-technical interviewer had a set of relatively easy questions regarding Windows administration. For instance, how do you list the network interfaces in windows, what command is used to update group policy, what is the subnet mask for a /23 address, etc. I had applied for a security role. I got around 70% of the questions right (through my experience as a user, not an admin) but was not called for the second interview.

    Data Warehouse Architect Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at MySpace (Beverly Hills, CA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Very formal written exam followed by a panel interview. I was a little surprised that no one seemed interested in my experience but just the answers to the test questions. I also was surprised being asked the same question over and over again as if it was a new question by one of the Director level interviewers. Make me think she had absolutely no idea was she was talking about or hearing. Also got the what's "Select 5/2" in MySQL question. The answer is 2 because its the result of two integers.

    Data Warehouse Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Beverly Hills, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MySpace (Beverly Hills, CA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    The process started with a phone screen, where in one of the manager asked the same question many times. It was just weird. And some of the questions were absolutely irrelevant to the job or even this domain. Then I was called in for the face2face. The same person ( who spoke on the phone asking the same question ) asked the same question again ? Even more weird was the question ( often repeated ) as what I'd do the first day, in detail ? Then these guys live in stone age - they gave a question paper for a written test ( they called "tech evaluation" ). Some of the questions had typo's ( they acknowledged that after in the group discussion as "oh yeah you're right, its there... " ) Then one senior architect interviewed and he was great in his 1:1. Then it followed with a "panel interview". The written test I had given, literally as torn apart into pages/sheets and the panel, in front of me started to go thro' those answer - marking x ( for wrong ), ? ( questions ) and ok ( for correct ) answers :-) Remember those good old school days ?? Then, they started to 'play god' by asking random questions and showing attitude. The sr. architect had sarcastic smile, comments and was downright rude. The clueless manager ( who would repeat the questions ) didn't get any of what I was saying and went on and on and on... Here are some hilights... 1. They marked and commented that one of my answers were wrong on MySQL - Turned out my answer was correct. 2. To a solution I proposed using Oracle, the sr. architect said - oh Oracle, ok why don't we shut down our systems and db flavor and use this as I ( candidate ) proposed it 3. To a question I passed I don't know, one person remarked - you said you don't know, did you get any ideas now ( after a while ) and can you think at all ? ... ... This is fox/MySpace for you gentleman.
