I applied through other source. I interviewed at RDX
straight forward process that gathered all the information needed to qualify me as a suitable candidate. Was contacted a week later with an offer and necessary paper work needed to seal my position with the company
- tell us about a time where you had to work under pressure
Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at RDX (Gurgaon, Haryana) in Jul 2019
It was a great interview I every I had in my professional carrier. HR called me up and spoken about my current role, organization and salary. Asked me about my expectation. After a day an online online evolution link was send which I write of the same day. There was a technical one to one interview done. Final I met the the MD, Mr. Vivek Vahie. My offer was rolled out after that interaction on next day.
- The questions were based on architecture, performance turning, high availability (main on AlwaysOn).
Got a burning question about RDX? Just ask!
Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at RDX (Warrendale, PA)
Applied Online in December of 2018 about six weeks later they reply. Have a conversation with HR/Recruiter. Had a face to face with three of their engineers. Interview was surprisingly easy given that this was for a senior position. After interview contacted HR person said I thought it went well and wanted to know next steps , status . She said they were interviewing other candidates contacted her a few more times on status each time she said she would contact me regarding final outcome. Never heard back . Which is why I'm writing not upset about not getting the job. But if I'm going to go through all the trouble of applying, taking time off and going to an interview. At least let me know what the status is . It's just rude and inconsiderate to act like that.
- Asked about backups and restoring what tools I used . Also asked me about T-SQL and tuning and performance issues all pretty basic questions nothing really difficult

All I can say is be prepared to waste alot of time. Heres the layout. The first interview is with the recruiter...30 mins. All good. If you pass that you move on to a 30 min interview with the DBA manager. Some technical, some discussions. Still good right? If you pass that, then is when the fun begins, you do a 90 minute technical interview which feels like an FBI interrogation or something. When you leave, you literally head straight to the bar and down some shots. NERVE RACKING FOR SURE!!!. If you happen to pass that interview you get called back for another 90 min interview. At this point you've wasted over 4 hours of your time. Thats a lot guys and a bit overkill. Facebook and Amazon doesn't even do this...lol. After all those interviews, if you don't hear a peep from them, that means you're not worth it and they move on. If you do, they'll offer a low ball salary of like 110k and say the benefit is working from home. All I can say is stay clear and run from this company.
- Tell me the 10 differences between Sql 2016 and Sql 2014? -WTH is this.. Tell me all the different kinds of indexes and what they mean? You need definitions for these.
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cranberry, PA
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RDX (Cranberry, PA) in May 2018
Laid back interview. Standard questions. The main interview consisted of somebody from upper management and the recruiter that contacted me. It lasted about twenty to thirty minutes. They never contacted me after the interview.
- How do you handle a disgrunteled customer?

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at RDX (Charlotte, NC) in Jan 2018
I am not sure why, but they tend to ask more customer service questions, which is strange for a technical position. I would say be prepared with generic customer service questions.
- If you could have a superpower, what would it be

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RDX (Charlotte, NC) in Aug 2017
Showed up at the interview a little early, met with Matthew. Interview was basic customer support questions, overall was a fun environment not as stressful as other interviews. After the generic questions they want to know you as a person. Their main goal in the interview is to see if you're able to be trained, not how much you know.
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
I applied online. I interviewed at RDX (Pittsburgh, PA) in Mar 2017
Received a call a few days I had applied. The interview was very unprofessional. Did not feel comfortable. The interviewee kept on interrupting my answers to is questions. At first he said, " There are no right answers to these questions. We just want to see what you come up with." Midway through my answers, he interrupts me saying "That's it?". He seemed very impatient and felt like he didn't even want to give the interview.
- What would you say to the customer if their problem was taking too long to be solved?
- Would you let a customer change something to their database if it is something that is not recommended.

This was the most unprofessional interview that I will probably ever experience in my life. I arrive early and they place me in this room. Two guys walked in discussing a recent issue that occurred, (you could hear them coming down the hall loud and cursing. They walk in and finally decide to acknowledge me after they finished their conversation. As the interview begins, one guy starts talking about the position and what to expect. It starts to sound more like a call center job and not anything like what the listing explains. He gets embarrassed because he couldn't find the word he was looking for and just blatantly curses. I have never felt so awkward and disrespected. Just a little advice to anyone else who is considering, do your research thoroughly.
- If you could have one superpower what would it be? Do you have any experience with Unix/Linux? How would you handle an angry costumer? (They ask you about more customer service answers, non-technical)
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cranberry Township, PA
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at RDX (Cranberry Township, PA) in Sep 2016
I applied at RDX and interviewed a few months ago. I heard about RDX through a job board and applied for an entry-level DBA position online. RDX's recruiter that I dealt with was helpful enough, however there were a few times when there would be a delay in communication. Eventually after some back and forth emails (and a couple dropped emails) an on-site interview was arranged at RDX's office building. I arrived early and both interviewers were late. One was rather unprofessionally dressed: skater shoes, purple slacks, an ill-fitting pink shirt and a multi-colored bow tie! I wish I was making this up... (The other interviewer was in a company shirt and jeans) I was tempted to walk out right there, because it was obvious that he wasn't going to take the interview seriously. They both had printed copies of a list of questions that they obviously needed to run through, and it seemed like it was an inconvenience that I was there. Questions were geared a lot towards customer service and less on technical skills. (I was never asked about SQL, such as selects, drops, join types, etc.!) At one point in time I was told that I'd be asked a series of questions to see how much I knew and once we got to a point in which I didn't know the answer to a question, it'd be okay to say "I don't know" and we'd stop. They asked a few simple technical questions and never got to the hard questions, which I thought was weird. About a half hour later they finished up with their last question (about super hero powers), quickly showed me out the door and let me know that they'd be in contact with me in a week or two. As I was leaving the parking lot of the building, I realized why they wanted to get rid of me: as I drove up past the front of the building, they were wandering around the parking lot smoking. It seems like I was the only thing holding up their cig break. There was some time before I heard back from their recruiter, and by that point in time I had already decided that there was no way I wanted to work there. If that was how they treated me when they were trying to convince me to work there.. how would they treat me if I said yes? Needless to say, I was not interested in the position after all that I went through.
