    Re: CNC interview questions

    You're kidding, right? A good interviewer will grill you regarding CNC operations, and may very ask you development type questions. Be prepared to talk about OMW, OCM, spec files, security, upgrades, web solution, architecture, performance, reading log files, etc. My last interview they handed me a debug file and aske me for the solution. I was also give a logic test to assess how I tackle an issue, not neccessarily come up with the correct answer. You will be assessed on you confidence level of addressing issues, not neccessarily the correct answer, as solutions vary between releases. No offense intended, but since you felt the need to aske this question, I wouldn't hire you. A good CNC person would already know.

    Re: CNC interview questions

    Are you looking for suggestions to help you prepare for an interview ? Or are you looking for suggestions for Interviewing candidates ?

    If you're a CNC person - then you really shouldn't need preparation. You should be confident in your abilities.

    However, if you're a CIO or a manager in charge to try and hire a CNC guy - then heres some pointers.

    CNC Administrator (Junior Level, ~$80k fulltime)
    1. What does "CNC" stand for? Can you spell CNC ?
    2. What is your experience on ________ platform/DB ?
    3. Whats a pathcode ?
    4. Whats a role ?
    5. Describe the procedure for setting up a user ?
    6. What is an ESU ? What is an ASU ? What are the differences ?
    7. Explain how the Data Dictionary works
    8. What is OCM ? How does OneWorld use it ?
    9. What is a Server Map ? What is the difference between a Server Map and System ?
    10. What is OMW ? What controls it ?

    CNC Administrator (Senior Level, ~$120k fulltime)
    All the above plus :
    1. Have you experience on other platforms/DB ? If so, what do you feel are the differences between platforms/DB ?
    2. What is the difference between a partial package, a full package and an update package ?
    3. What is the "bootstrap" process for a OneWorld Fat Client startup
    4. What is a kernel and a listener ?
    5. How do you interface to Oneworld from an external application ?
    6. What are the levels of communication from a Java Application Server through to OneWorld ? How does this differ from a Win32 Client?
    7. Explain the differences between the W and J environments
    8. What are the deployment differences between Interactive Versions and Batch Versions ? Why is there a difference ?
    9. Explain the procedure for changing a deployment server
    10. Explain a process to troubleshoot a performance issue with a UBE

    CNC Implementor (Consultant level)
    All the above plus :
    1. Explain briefly the installation process
    2. Explain briefly an upgrade procedure
    3. What is the difference between a data-only upgrade and a full upgrade ?
    4. Explain briefly a platform migration process
    5. How does the publisher/subscriber process work ?
    6. What is the three-tiered architecture ? What is a virtual 3 Tier and how does it compare against a physical 3 Tier ?
    7. Briefly explain a disaster recovery strategy
    8. What is the difference between network latency and network bandwidth ? How do either affect JDE ?
    9. What is a "closed" security model ? How does it differ from an "open" security model ?
    10. Explain non-replication

    These are pulled from the top of my head, and I've tried to keep them platform independent. Obviously an interviewer will also add specific platform-dependent and database-dependent questions. They'd also be interested in knowing correct answers to architecture questions that they use or are interested in. A good CNC interviewer would probably also throw in a couple of development questions and functional questions as well, depending on the level of expertise they were looking for.

    Also, the above questions could have multiple good answers - it would be important to the interviewer to see HOW the candidate answers - not necessarily whether their answer matches the interviewers answer. A very confident CNC specialist should be able to identify what alternative answers are available to the above questions.

    I've been known to run CNC Training Workshops from time to time (!) - and in that workshop I usually have a "final exam" - something that JDE doesn't do in their training agendas. In that final exam, I expect my passing students to receive a certain passing average - and I've never seen below 70% after a two week course. Believe me, my exam questions ain't easy !

    When I was at JDE - I was asked to create a "certification" procedure for OneWorld CNC consultants and to oversee the JDE Certification for CNC. This was a relatively shortlived process at JDE (it pretty much died just after I left), but while it lasted, it really identified the wheat from the chaff ! Its a pity that Oracle don't have a similar procedure.

    Anyway - others might certainly have different questions - but you should be able to gauge your experience based on answering the above set of questions !

    3- Can you do #'s 1 and 2 while a project manager is screaming at you?

    Re: CNC interview questions

    oooh - I love it ! Top 10 CNC interviewee questions !

    ok - let me add a few !

    10 - can you be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week ? Can you work over Christmas ? How about New Years ?

    9 - can you provide functional, technical AND development skills to help us implement ? We're paying $50,000 a year by the way

    8 - can you work in an environment where we don't provide a high-enough computer access to do your job ? Its just that we're a bit worried about our system administrators' job security....

    7 - can you re-write JDE code ? We've had an issue for the past 11 years that JDE can't resolve...

    6 - can you make our users happy ?

    5 - can you make our CEO happy ?

    4 - Can you make JDE work just like our old system ?

    3 - Can you get us live with no budget ? We blew our money on a big-6 consulting firm that had never done an implementation before.

    2 - Can you work with this outsourced group that doesn't speak english and is in charge of all our support and development ?

    And the number 1 asked interview question for CNC consultants ?

    1 - Can we hire you direct ?

    I gave it a one. It's got a good beat, but it's tough to dance to. I do like the snarky questions from Jeff and Jon though....
