    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at New York Internet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best first IT gig anybody could ask for. Ample resources to teach yourself anything, close relationships between all departments, and always a willingness to try new approaches. There is enough free time between the occasional fire to go from n00b to admin in no time if you have the interest to do so.

    Cons

    Technical department needs a more standards-based approach for version-controlled code, configuration management, deployment strategies, etc. These are slowly being adopted, but are not quite there yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring people who are, first and foremost, fundamentally enthusiastic about all aspects of computing and who wear it on their sleeves.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New York Internet (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    HR phone interview was fairly straightforward/easy just going over your experience and discussing the role. Then an in-person interview at an alternate location from their actual office, which is a bit weird. Before the interview, I was given a two page quiz on computing to fill out. Then an employee came in for the interview portion.

    He looked at my quiz for less than a second before saying, "Whatever, we don't need to look at this." Which was pretty disappointing since my answers were good, I thought. Then he went on to ask me everything about computers you'd ever ask someone, down to every last detail, which was kind of ridiculous. It's like he was getting off on extracting information from me that he just personally wanted to know that wasn't even that relevant to the position. He asked an inordinate amount of questions about telnet and various DNS sorts of intricacies. He also mocked me once in the interview, which was sort of hurtful.
