    Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NIC (Kansas City, MO) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I had a one and a half hour phone call with two employees where they asked just about every question that some one with an RHCA could answer. This phone call was followed by a full day panel interview. Employees in the interview were constantly coming and going. The first 3 hours were normal questions about my work history and about me.

    Then they brought out a laptop with a Linux VM on it. The VM was broken and I was expected to fix it. Then I was asked to open vi and start doing some editing to prove that I knew vi. At one point they asked me how to use the second buffer, I told them that I didn't know how to do it. At this point their Sr Tech proclaimed "I don't even use that."

    MySQL was next and I was given a deployment DB to work with. They asked many questions about selecting data and joining tables. It was now about lunch time and every one got a sandwich. I only got to finish half of the sandwich as they kept asking me questions. At one point two of the employees started arguing over one of my answers, which I had already demonstrated to be correct on the MySQL DB they had me working on. After finishing their requests with the VM, I was then interviewed for three hours by three product managers about ITIL.

    After this interview I thought I was going to be working with rock-stars, why else would they interview like they only hired rock-stars? This was not the case.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. They asked me practically every question about Linux that a seasoned Sr SysAdmin could be expected to answer or at least be expected to be able to find the answer quickly.

    Desktop Support Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Olathe, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NIC (Olathe, KS) in September 2013.

    Interview

    It was a relatively intense process for someone new to the corporate game.
    I was interviewed by no less than four people, although only two of them seemed prepared or interested.
    I don't think the interview questions were necessarily that great, but by the end of the meeting the mood was light and we were laughing.
