There were at least four or five different people that were conducting the interview: one by one. The entire interview took five hours.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Red Hat.

    Interview

    HR interview was great (that might be the first kind-hearted HR I ever met). Technical part however was pretty difficult. They (understandably) expect their support engineers to be more experienced than an average sysadmin. I wasn't that experienced, but I thought I might qualify for a niche. The interviewers were support engineers themselves. They looked like professionals, but sadly they were awful at interviewing. I didn't answer every single question, however they insisted that I think about it even when I explicitly stated that I don't know the answer. That lead to a lot of time wasted, a lot of nervousness on my side and a lot of awkward silence.

    Nice people but hard questions. Of course this position is demanding but I didn't expect questions at so high level. They asked me about kernel debugging.
