Linux Administrator Interview
I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Rackspace (Austin, TX) in October 2013.
Recruiter quickly responded after my application in setting up an initial phone screener in which I was quizzed on things like commands, common ports, DNS, and then I was scheduled to complete an online TrueAbility test. After the test, I was given a phone interview and live break/fix, which I did not do as well on and was not selected for any further interviews.

The process took 4 days – interviewed at Rackspace (San Antonio, TX) in July 2010.
Several phone interviews to weed out the obviously not qualified, followed by several interviews by others in the position you will be working at. These interviews are being conducted by your future co-workers. Don't try and BS your way through. They want to establish if you are a good fit for the company, if you have the technical skills, and your overall ability to be the kind of team member they want to work with.
They will probe to the ends of your knowledge and skill set. We all have a limit, they just want to know where yours ends. Not a big deal, really. Overall a very cordial yet tough set of interviews. Be yourself, be honest, and be happy.
Negotiate for what you feel you are worth.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Rackspace (Hayes, England (UK)) in August 2011.
Great interview process. Telephone interview and technical screening from a senior member of staff who was knowledgeable. Followed by a face to face interview. The dress code of staff members is informal so it kind of throws you a bit but was a good interview. One more quick technical test. Offer was made very quickly and the whole hiring process was very very smooth and professional

I did not negotiate so I have no idea what room there is for negotiation.
