The best example I can think of is when I was a Technical Support engineer and we made a proprietary stress echo system for ultrasound before they had the on board systems they have now.Our system was much better than the ones they used to have. On occasion a system would have problems while the patient was on the treadmill doing a stress echo. The echo tech would call for support and you only had a very small window to disgnose the problem and fix it before the patient was off the treadmill.If you didn't solve the problem you would usually have a very angry doctor on your hands because they are not going to make a patient who is overweight or has a heart issue get back on the treadmill for another test and would have to reschedule also making the patient angry. I almost always solved the problem barring any hardware issues.

As I mentioned earlier I started with a small family owned company called Sonora Medical Systems. There were about 20 employees and they had these two desktop towers that were not server grade they used for their company servers. I was the closest thing they had to any IT personnel at the time so I became the de facto IT admin. One of these servers was a flie server I had to reboot several times a day every day.I finally proposed an overhaul of their infrastructure. With the help of a consultant I rebuilt their IT infrastructure from the ground up. I built the server racks installed new rackmount servers and switches, ran all the CAT5 cabling. Installed a NAS device and tape backup. I also configured all the operating systems and then managed all of this equipment. I did have help on some of the more complex problems but for the most part I managed this on my own. That network never went down to my recollection. I continued to be the primary onsite IT manager from there on. But building that network to be dependable while I was just learning IT was something I am pretty proud of.

It's been a couple of tough years. I lost my wife last year she passed away. This year I was laid off my job after 15 years but I'm a glass half full kind of guy and I am excited and looking forward to starting a new chapter in my life with renewed vigor and this would be the perfect opportunity. After being an IT generalist for most of my career I would love to focus on a specific area of IT and be really good at it. I would love the chance to prove I can be an asset to this organization. I would Like to also thank you for the opportunity to interview for this position.
Question 9 of 10
What major challenges and problems did you face at your last position?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Only challenges were on insurance changes and/or procedure changes.
2.
Quickly changing priorities with little notice, given tasks with little knowledge or preparation supplied.
3.
With GE being such a large company things did not get resolved as quickly as I or my fellow employees would like.There was a lot of red tape numerous work flows and signatures to be obtained before many things got done.Being the only onsite IT guy I had to find creative ways to help fellow employees with some of their problems. I was second layer support. Employees were not to come to me directly for tech support. They were to call the help desk which was in India or Mexico and go through their process to solve problems. If they could not solve the problem the call would get routed to me. This was sometimes a long drawn out process so if I possibly could and had the resources I would circumvent the call and help the person directly especially if it was our site leader or a manager.
Question 10 of 10
