    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Internap.

    Interview

    Someone from HR reached out after searching for my resume online. I briefly went over my skills with the rep and she scheduled the initial panel interview. After that interview was supposed to be another technical interview with 2 tier III Engineers, but since only 1 showed up on time, it ended up being two one hour interviews. Once that was complete, I was called to have a face to face interview which was another 1.5 hours.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Internap.

    Interview

    Started by networking with former co-worker. Referred to an Internap employee who might be able to help me network. The initial discussion really turned out to be an interview which I did not know going into it. This was good as we were having a discussion and I was not in interview mode. So my true nature really came through.

    Interview Questions

    • A strategy question for which the interviewers had predefined answer. My answer did not align with theirs. This did not prevent me from getting the position but rather changing the candidate position.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The salary negotiation was not difficult.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Internap (New York, NY) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by Internap recruiter from Atlanta. They set up a phone interview with the supervisor of the Agile Hosting Manager. Interview went well. Follow up interviews were arranged to go onsite to the New York location and interview with the employees that were to report to the Manager of Agile Hosting. Three 1 on 1 interviews with lead Systems Administrator, Lead Network Administrator, and Lead Software Engineer were done. Interviews went well. Several days later, was called back by the Internap HR recruiter in Atlanta to arrange follow-up interviews with Manager in similar positions in other geographic locations. Conducted 3 more phone interviews, two with similar level managers, and one with a company Vice-President. Those all went well. Finally, a second phone interview was setup with the original supervisor of the position. That seemed to go well. 8 total interviews on 4 different days with 7 different people over a period of 14 days. The supervisor seemed very upbeat and was going to get back in touch the following week. 13 days later I received the email that they had selected another candidate. Total process time was about 27 days.

    Hosting Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in North Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Internap (North Atlanta, GA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I was initially reached out to by a recruiter who had found my resume on Career Builder. She had introduced me over the phone to the company, and asked if I was interested in the position. She then set up a phone interview with the person who would later become my boss. He asked several questions about experience, asked technical questions such as advantages of non-multi-threaded processing, and asked questions such as personal interests. I honestly thought I had bombed (he has a great poker face, too). The recruiter called and told me that I was actually well liked (to my relief) and we set up an interview.

    The interview was actually 5 interviews. One was with my boss, one with a guy who later became an excellent resource in marketing, and 3 with people who would become my team-mates on this new team.

    The first, my future boss walked in with an arm-full of components out of an old workstation or server, and asked me to identify them.

    Second was the guy from marketing, whom I discussed (and diagrammed) the finer points of an infrastructure of a personal project of mine, and was actually able to shed light on some smaller bugs I had been experiencing. It was actually a lot of fun.

    Third, fourth and fifth were future team mates and were really just to see if the chemistry worked. Then the recruiter checked in to see if everything went well, then I left.

    I had to track down the email address of my future boss as it seems a few email addresses don't match the typical nomenclature, but I did and sent a "thank you" email, as is standard.

    I received a (positive) response a few days later.

    Interview Questions

    • The diagramming was the most unexpected, though breaking it down and discussing the finer points with someone so technical was not only fun, but very enlightening and led to some major shifts in how the application worked to improve performance.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was somewhat simple. I accepted lower pay than asking as my interview was originally for a part time position, but full-time with benefits was offered.
