    Cloud Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rackspace (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    This place is a joke. I applied for a cloud engineer position and they told me that it actually requires relocation to be closer to the team in SA. Then the recruiter proceeded to tell me that I don't have enough experience and said my resume won't make it. The last position I applied for was a couple years back and received the same feedback. Don't email me telling me I would be good for the role and then just tell me over the phone that I'm not qualified.

    Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Submit resume, recruiter called, phone screen and onsite interview. Some people were remote during the interview while some were on site. Typical interview questions and not challenging. Declined offer since it is way below market. Not taking a paycut

    Higher Level Corporate Support Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Rackspace (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interviewer was articulate and the interview was cordial. It centered around the role and ended with a typical salary requirement question. I thought it was a positive experience overall, and possible next steps were discussed where a panel discussion might occur.

    The interviewer "went ghost" however, never to be heard from again. I guess I'm glad it came and went if that is how they operate. Oh well.......maybe you will luck out and interview with someone there who operates with greater courtesy, and who will at least send a short note to provide candidates with some sense of closure.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Rackspace (Elk Grove, IL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I received a quick response to my resume submission followed by nearly a month of being told that i would hear back within 24 hours. 3 1/2 weeks later I was told that they wanted to have a phone screen that would last 1 hour. Immediately after the initial interview the recruits sent me a request for a 3 hour on site panel interview. I was asked the same question over and over again by different people. The hiring manager seemed to have his act together. However, the managers from remote sites were not educated as to the lengthy conversations that had previously occurred.

    Interview

    I applied online. I received an email about 2 months later stating that I would be contacted soon. I waited and waited but never received anything. I responded to the email but of course it was a non-reply email so I nothing ever happened. Very unprofessional.

    Dev Ops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rackspace.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty thorough, although they didn't explain a lot about the culture, and due to technical issues I was only able to interview via the phone (I was not located in San Antonio at the time). Despite this I found the interviewers to be fair, and they were able to dig into my answers, as opposed to just asking surface level questions.
