    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SoftLayer (Dallas, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very drawn out. Expect to wait weeks on end, even after they let you know they want to offer you the job. If you have worked in a DC before, its simple. If you haven't, then google RAID and freshen up on general IT Hardware concepts and terms.
