    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Real Magnet in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Sr. DBA stumbled by Jr. interviewer

    1. Some general questions during phone interview went well
    2. Personal interview was okay. I respect that CIO is always busy and didn't want to waste too much time, which is good. However, the tech asked very general questions and expect you to have a specific answer. When asking more details for the scenario, he just couldn't provide. Every "real" DBA knows "it depends". For example, how do you go about to improve INSERT performance? Answer: "MERGE?" Of course..., it's incorrect.
    3. For interviewer, please do some researches on, SQLAuthority, and so on.
    4. For interviewee, please just give a Jr. DBA answer. Like index seek improves performance, join hints, MERGE, Raid 10, separate data and log files, lock escalations,...
