    It was a normal panel of multiple groups of devs asking the same questions, what is this used for and made me write some code in regards to something they had written on the board. asp.net and css and javascript. It wasn't bad to make it work but you had to rememember every possible input that could be brought in. But just be prepared to do .net only and sql server.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at MySpace (Beverly Hills, CA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    There were multiple positions listed that seemed like a good fit, so I started by finding someone on linkedin who held a relevant position, and started a conversation with them.

    We talked back and forth about a few different things, and about my background before I submitted my resume and was granted an interview.

    Once my resume was submitted, the manager responsible for setting up the interview scheduled a time, and then emailed me to cancel, shortly before the interview was to occur. It took a few days of back and forth emailing to get the interview successfully scheduled when a simple phone call or two would have accomplished the same result much more quickly and easily.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were designed to gauge how one would handle operating in a large distributed server environment, where application and server performance tuning happen on the live production systems.   Answer Question
    • They asked questions about resolving issues within their production environment, e.g. how do you replicate the contents of a filesystem containing 10 or 100s of thousands of small files across the network from a backup, onto a new server, in a managable timeframe?   Answer Question

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MySpace (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume and got called for a phone screen interview. The non-technical interviewer had a set of relatively easy questions regarding Windows administration. For instance, how do you list the network interfaces in windows, what command is used to update group policy, what is the subnet mask for a /23 address, etc. I had applied for a security role. I got around 70% of the questions right (through my experience as a user, not an admin) but was not called for the second interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at MySpace (Beverly Hills, CA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Very formal written exam followed by a panel interview. I was a little surprised that no one seemed interested in my experience but just the answers to the test questions. I also was surprised being asked the same question over and over again as if it was a new question by one of the Director level interviewers. Make me think she had absolutely no idea was she was talking about or hearing.

    Also got the what's "Select 5/2" in MySQL question. The answer is 2 because its the result of two integers.
