I worked at Hostway full-time (Less than a year)
Great people, relaxed environment, good pay.
Hosting, cloud and managed, is a tough industry, and the company needed to figure out where they feel they can best compete. They were all over the place, and there was no clear vision as to who the company was and what market they were going after. This caused turnover at the highest level. That was almost 2 years ago, so I'm hopeful it's been figured out now.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hostway (Chicago, IL).
The process was very detailed and the technical questions were on par for what the position required.
Once I passed the phone interview, I went in and was interviewed by serveral System Administrators and the shift supervisor. Days after the interview, I was offered the job.
No real negotiation but the starting salary was decent at that time.
