    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SoftLayer (Dallas, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Initially I participated in a phone interview, then I was brought into the office for a case study interview. Afterwards, I had 1:1 interviews with various members of the management team. Overall, it was nothing out of the ordinary in terms of interview process. I felt that all of the questions asked were relevant to the position, and each interviewer came prepared with his/her own individual questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a stressful situation you've encountered, and how you were able to deal with it.   Answer Question
