    Platform Architect Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Web.com (Jacksonville, FL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Initially did a phone screen with the VP of the development division. Went over the basics of the role, summation of my skills in relation to the position and the responsibilities of the position. Was invited to a video interview with a panel consisting of several members of upper management and a lonely software engineer. After initial questions of my experience and what I had done, interview questions were basically round-robin, specifically focusing different aspects of each infrastructure area.

    The interview process changed from knowledge / skills questions to that of a full-fledged interrogation. Thumbscrews and hot coals would have been more fun. Not one of the questions asked was related to "scripting languages including shell scripts/Perl/php/python/lua etc., knowledge of Linux, Apache/Nginx and SAN/NAS, network and security" in relation to the position description requirements. Questions were focused on the VERY low, run-time level and aspects on how things worked. Be prepared to be demoralized in front of others if they don't like your answers. Take note, when someone either shows that they are falling asleep or actually smiles at you (repeatedly) when you are working on coming up with a sensible answer, take it as a sign they are actually enjoying your discomfort or bored talking to you.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Web.com.

    Interview

    It went fine in the beginning. There is no point in a review on the hiring process because the entire field sales channels was terminated. So all that were part of the hiring process was let go, except the CEO David Brown.

    Modifications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Web.com (Jacksonville, FL) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Expect several panel interviews and a written coding examination. The written portion was fairly difficult if you cannot write HTML code from top to bottom. If you can use a WYSIWYG editor you can do this job, and Search Engine Optimization knowledge helps as well. The staff in modifications is very friendly and HR will try to put you with a different position if they see another opportunity available that they think you would be better suited for.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate but in retrospect I realize that I could have.
