Linux Administrator Interview

Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
No Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Rackspace (Austin, TX) in October 2013.

Interview

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.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Rackspace (San Antonio, TX) in July 2010.

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    Negotiate for what you feel you are worth.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rackspace (Hayes, England (UK)) in August 2011.

    Interview

    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
