    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Hitachi ID Systems (Calgary, AB (Canada)).

    I met an employee at a social event, he asked me to send a resume through him (there is an employee referral program at Hitachi ID and employees get bonuses when a referral becomes a hire).

    I got a phone call about 10 days after sending in my resume. Had a phone interview, an in-person interview and a technical test before getting an offer.

    Technical Support Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi ID Systems (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Your resume needs to get through a keyword filter before it reaches a managers desk. You will receive a telephone interview with highly technical questions followed by a 4 hour (time limit) in person exam.

    Interview Questions

    • Telephone Interview:

      Linux

      How do you change a user’s password?

      How do you add a user?

      IIS

      Do you know what a virtual directory is?

      How do you change or restore permissions if you get a "permission denied" error?

      There was a question about GPO and Active directory.   2 Answers
    • Written Exam:

      Part 0 - Document and record

      Part 1 - Windows Server - IIS

      Setup cgi application calc.exe (not installed correctly), needed to activate Anonymous access to get rid of the 401.2 error. Correct the jpg filename to gif to match the html file. You also search for calc.exe and the application files were available on other parts of the PC (this could test your knowledge to see if you know the correct place to put the files; afterwards I realized I've worked with cgi applications from the Program Files folder and not from the TEMP directory *palm slap*).

      Part 2 – Linux
      There is a linux server at xx.xx.xx.xx address that has the ability to ssh
      Use telnet to connect to this server but only from subnet xx.xx.yy.xx as the client only wants traffic to this server coming from that subnet. Your objective is to place an empty file in a directory.

      Part 3 - Program
      Using a variety of languages with environments that are readily available take a key value pair with several examples into a text file (I thought the examples were in JSON, but it wasn’t as straight forward as that”:
      “user” “sam” = “email” : “sam@hotmail.com”,
              “as400name” : “speedy”,
              “IPaddress”:”xxx.xxx.xx.xx”
              “other variable” : “some variable”

      Create a text file with these values and have the application run through the values to find “as400name” when the “user” value is “sam”.
      So your program would start like: ./ProgrameName filename.txt

      loops
      variables and scope

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi ID Systems (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Several stupid technical questions by email, then like 8 very easy questions by phone, then a more difficult test on their ugly office in Montreal. They are not very polite, they don't answer any email after the interview even though I solved everything. They are not professionals, at least they should answer my emails.
