I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at iomart (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)).
Telephone interview and then assessment centre (3 tier) Telephone interview consisted of competency based questions Assessment centre was more about technical and customer service/support skills Very little info provided about the job, pay, and job duties, etc. The main thing were the three tests that were prepared, it was a bit hectic as it was not really organised well.
- 3 tier: customer support, technical and grammar/spelling test Technical was by far the hardest questions were meant to understand if training was necessary and to what level. Question e.g. -For what is POP and IMAP used and what are the differences between these? -Difference between shared, virtual and dedicated server? - related to a web hosting facility Answer Question
