Advice to Management
Keep up the good work
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Rackspace (Hayes, England) in March 2012.
Took 3 months to phone me once I applied. Did a quick technical telephone interview. Face-to-face was split into two parts - technical lab and theory, plus compatency based questions. Lots of labs carried out on a Cisco ASA. You have to demonstrate why you want to be a racker and work at Rackspace.
