Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi, One question I was asked was pretty lame…would I know what CAT5 cable is and how can I be sure it was correct? Also, I was asked “If the user reported a problem with their computer, would I asked them to check the cables before I made a trip to the desk/office to check myself? I don’t know if this employer was just paranoid about employees wasting time on the job or what! What kind of questions have you been asked?

    Hi, Mostly questions from a programming point of view, but here's a few examples I've had in the past. What's the difference between a DO WHILE and a DO UNTIL loop. How many files can you use in a CL program. How can you transfer files/objects between systems. Is it possible to write data records to a tape in the same way as you do to a database file. Somewhere I have a list of questions I made up for a former employer. I'll have to see if I can find it. Regards, Martin Gilbert.
