Windows Systems Administrator III Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Rackspace.
Interview Details – Was contacted by phone and asked a series of technical questions ranging from basic DOS commands to general questions about server hardware and network equipment. After the phone interview I was contacted and an online test was scheduled; the test was a series of problems to resolve or settings to change in a Windows Server RDP session. After the online test, I was invited to an in-person interview that lasted all day as I met with the department manager and various team members.
Interview Question – There were a couple of unexpected, nontechnical questions during the in-person interview that were designed to test your critical thinking. Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview
Windows Systems Administrator III Interview (Positive Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rackspace in October 2011.
Interview Details – Interview at Rackspace was one of the most enjoyable interviews of my professional career. After a phone screening, I was set up with a panel interview comprising of 2 team leads first, and then a group for 3 engineers. Each session lasted for more than an hour. The questions can be categorized under following categories:
2) Team fit and workability/ work ethic
3) Personal philosophy (believe it or not!) :)
Before you go for the interview, make sure you read up on the culture @ Rackspace. That can be a deal breaker! Visit Rackspace talent website and spend some time on it.
