    Data Center Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at New York Internet in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview will consist of two parts, an HR person and a technical person. The HR portion is standard and generic. The technical portion usually starts with a review of your performance on a simple test of Unix and basic troubleshooting questions they administered before the interview and branches off from there. While the job title is for Data Center Technician they heavily prefer candidates who have a fair proficiency in *Nix environments or showcase a desire for and adeptness at learning unix sysadmin skills. You do not need previous industry experience, just some sort of way of demonstrating your capabilities with computers. Expressing a willingness to work all shifts and do any assigned task will get you far. If you are used to a formal IT environment with defined tasks, structure and responsibilities, and that's what you're looking for - save yourself the trouble and look elsewhere.

    If you do not hear back within a week, or the following two or three days even, you did not get the job. If you do get an offer, you can start working as soon as possible.

    Interview Questions
    • Don't remember, probably some basic nix thing, like configuring a nic at the command line.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    If you feel like negotiating for higher pay, don't expect success, especially if you have no demonstrated abilities or previous industry experience. And if you do, you'll likely not find much flexibility for increases. They prefer to hire cheap raw inexperienced personnel in the hopes of getting hardworking competent employees within 2 months or so, instead of boasted "skill set" employees with bloated pay and an unwillingness to do tasks "below" them and no desire to attempt tasks outside their capabilities that they are uncomfortable with.
