Windows Systems Administrator III Interview

Anonymous Employee
Anonymous Employee
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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:
    1) Technical
    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.
