I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at StoredIQ.
Phone interview with the hiring manager was followed up by an in-person interview with two senior coworkers, the support manager, the director of operations and a few developers. The interview process lasted for about 6 and a half hours and contained some work related quizzes/questions and simulations to test linux knowledge and troubleshooting skills.
- There were many difficult questions that I believe were put in place to test an individuals ability to research, but one of the most unexpected situations that came up was a simulation that was given to remotely connect to a server (from a laptop that was provided) and troubleshoot some network communication issue that the server was having (between it and a few of its hosts). Unfortunately, not all packages necessary to complete the task were installed on the server machine (which didn't have internet access). 1 Answer

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day – interviewed at StoredIQ (Austin, TX) in July 2010.
First of all they forgot they had a interview with me and never called. I waited an hour, and a call to my recruiter had them set up another interview the next day.
The next day, they were 10 minutes late calling me, which if it were the other way around, of course, it would have not been professional at all on my part.
Discussed work history and work performed, as well as projects. Was asked a few technical questions, but wasn't very clear as to the outcome or result they were expecting. Considering the work or code that I provided before hand, it should have been enough to show my technical expertise, they felt they needed to ask random technical questions in a different way to confuse me. I answered the questions, but who knows if it was what they were looking for.
Reasons for Declining
By talking with them, I knew I wouldn't have liked working with or for them. I called to tell my recruiter that I wasn't going to take the position
