    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at


    It was pretty straightforward. They asked me several questions that, since I'm a web developer by trade, were a piece of cake for me to answer. I could tell early on that due to the detailed nature of my answers the interviewer was very impressed with my knowledge and was going to recommend me for the job. What really gave it away was him repeatedly mumbling, "You basically already answered that, and that, and that, and..." after each answer I gave. That and the fact that he told me, " Well you are certainly qualified for this job." It was a pretty comfortable interview with no pressure at all once I realized the guy was wearing flip-flops and noticed how laid back he was about the whole thing.

    Interview Questions

    • For example: How would you set up an email account in CPanel?   Answer Question


    There really wasn't one. They were pretty firm on "start out pay". Claiming that all new hires currently start at that rate.
