    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Atos North America.

    Interview

    Received call to schedule interview within 2 business days of providing resume/cover letter. Interview seemed fairly scripted with basic questions such as what are your weaknesses, when have you had to handle criticism, how would you handle critiquing others, are you big picture/detail oriented. After accepting the position it seemed many questions pertaining to working with others were directly applicable to current circumstances in the DC.

    Interview Questions

    • Needed to be able to identify server components from a slide, including some rather old scsi controllers, modem, ect.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Pay rate was declared even before interview, did not negotiate as rate seemed very competitive at this position compared to other companies.

    Data Center Technician I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Des Moines, IA
    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Atos North America (Des Moines, IA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and I was contacted within 48 hours. Had my interview within the next 48 hours. Was given the offer 24 hours later on the grounds that I could pass drug screening and critical background check. Was onsite and working less than 3 weeks after initial application.

    The interview is business casual. No tie is necessary. A nice polo is probably your best bet.

    I was interviewed by two people at the same time. One person was more on the HR side of things and the other on the technical side.

    High level background check! Two back ground checks take place. Pre-hire and during employment. After you are hired you will be going through a government background check, so make sure you're squeaky clean.

    Interview Questions

    • What port does (protocol) use.   1 Answer
    • What RAID do you believe we use most in this Data Center   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    If you have the experience and knowledge (certs are always a nice extra) try to get hired on as Tech II its a $2 jump on base pay.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Atos North America.

    Interview

    More time was spent selling the position than quantifying my expertise as a fit. I was hired for a different job than I applied for so I wasn't well prepared to answer questions for 'that job' so I was caught off guard. They decide if they want you based on what's on paper. If you seem like-able at the interview - it's yours to lose. They are measuring how poised, confident, calm and good you are under pressure. (professional acumen). They will keep asking questions till they trip you up or find your weakness and proceed with several more to 'stress test' you. I lacked experience in a few of the areas (and no prepared response since I had no idea I would be going for a different job) but responded with stories and experiences which were somewhat related or relevant to show understanding of the concept and some exposure. I did this several questions in a row and they seemed to like my poise and 'communication' skills. I was likely up against others who were probably more attuned with more direct recent experience and prepared since they knew what position they were going for...I did deliberately give a range lower than current market rate (15-25% under) because I was coming in as a contractor and knew I would have room when I converted in the future - but for the moment my goal was to simply 'secure' the job out from under my competitors. I have done this in the past with other companies to get my foot in the door and then advanced later. Since then I have observed hiring practices and outcomes. Half the time they are hiring unqualified/ill fitting or lazy people they then have to let go later (after they have done no work, leaned on others, caused risk and done damage) after several months of no output. Bedazzlement and 'likeability' during the interview process and an interesting back story seems to take priority over logic. This is a problem half the time.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you motivated by money? [Isn't the the entire point of employment?] I stalled and tried diversion and giving an ambiguous answer (it depends on the circumstances) but he pressed on as if the answer to this question as yes or no was the final test. (I said no.) He had a few more people to consider/talk to. I got a call within 2 hours they selected me.   Answer Question

    Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Brunswick, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Atos North America (North Brunswick, NJ) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Received a call from Atos recruiter who went over job role and my requirements, determined I was qualified to apply for the job and sent my resume to HR recruiter, got a call from a lady recruiter who scheduled a person interview with hiring manager at Highstown NJ, interview was mostly going over job role and expectations, very few technical questions. After two hours of interview hiring manager told me that I was going get a call in a week for a follow up interview...3 weeks later, no call. I E-mailed recruiter, HR recruiter and hiring manager inquiring about the company decision for this role, no call back, no E-mail after 3 weeks! We all put aside time for interview and expect both sides to be more professional, a simple E-mail saying that "another candidate have been identified" or "we are still looking" would be enough, terrible experience with Atos job application here in NJ.
