    Very flexible here! They give you a long leash to do the things you want to work on without micro-managing. Love that it's collaborative where you can voice your opinions and ideas.


    No equity. Hoping we'll get options down the road.

    Junior Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Trace3 (Irvine, CA) in February 2015.


    The interviewer pretty much ran down my resume and commented on various points but did not inquire very much. Overall it felt like the interviewer was only going through the motions which is pretty insulting and an inconsiderate. I honestly believe they were threatened by resume content. At the end of the interview, I was told I would get a second interview but it never happened. Overall waste of time and frustrating. Never felt like a true and fair interview.
