    • Can you please tell me about some popular cloud automation tools, and describe their potential use?   Answer Question
    • Imagine that you are creating a monitoring solution for your service. What characteristics, key performance indicators, or output would you consider in determining the availability of the service to your end clients?   Answer Question
    • Parse a file containing multiple groups of IP addresses and print out only the group of IP addresses that match the label "Houston" which should be hard coded in your function for this particular exercise. The group name will be on its own line and will be unique in the input file. Each IP address will be on its own line in the input file. The file can contain blank lines. The function should output the IP addresses comma separated. Input: A sample inventory file which may contain various text and comments along with valid and invalid IP addresses. For example: [Dallas] 10.20.30.40 10.20.30.41 10.40.20.1 [Houston] 9.20.30.5 9.30.4.10 [Seattle] 172.10.2.35 Output: The list of IP addresses separated by commas. With "Houston" hard coded as the label, the output of the above example should be:\ 9.20.30.5,9.30.4.10   Answer Question
    • Using the Fibonacci sequence, print out a lower case letter (from the English alphabet) the number of times of the Fibonacci number in the corresponding index. A number in the Fibonacci sequence is calculated by: n[x-2] + n[x-1] = n[x] The sequence starts with n[1] = 1 and n[2] = 1. The index begins at 1, not 0. Be careful of off by 1 errors. You do not have to worry about exceeding the English alphabet s max index of 26. Example: Input: 5 Letter = e Fibonacci number n[5] = 5 Output: eeee Input: A single integer. Output: A number of lower case letters as described above.   Answer Question
    • Often there is a need to run a task across a set of machines. The list of IP addresses for these machines could come from different sources and therefore be in different formats. Starting with a file that contains mainly IP addresses, one per line, your task is to write a function that converts the list of IP addresses into a comma separated list of IP address, ignoring any line that starts with a # and ignoring any line that does not contain a valid IP address. Input: A sample inventory file which may contain various text and comments along with valid and invalid IP addresses. For example: [zone1] 10.171.102.174 #10.171.102.195 10.171.102.182 [zone2] 10.171.3.172 10.171.3.21 #10.171.3.224 Output: The list of IP addresses separated by commas. For the above example, that would be: 10.171.102.174,10.171.102.182,10.171.3.172,10.171.3.21   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    1. Applied online
    2. Recruiter scheduled call
    3. Telephone interview with Manager
    4. Telephone interview with Peer Manager
    5. Video interview with another manager

    Total Time: 2 months

    Comments:
    These interviews were over a two month period and after each interview there was little feedback. Finally, after the last interview I had to check my status on the Career site to see the job was on "HOLD" and "Under Manager Review". IBMers on Quora said this meant I was still under consideration. A few weeks later with still no word from the recruiter, I checked again and found the "JOB WAS CANCELED".

    I had expected more from IBM after going through 4 interviews and I am not impressed and wary of ever applying for another position given their current recruiting processes as well as the company itself. IBM has strayed far from its well known status as being one of the best tech companies to work for.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Asked technical questions, but no coding. Group interview. 5 other people interviewed me. What is agile development? Have you used testing in your programs? Do you know what a framework is? Why do you want to work for IBM? I did not know answers to about 50% of questions. I also am taking a summer class, so this may have been the reason why I did not get the position.
