    Chat Tech Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral - interviewed at HostGator.com in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was able to get onboard with this company as a part time employee because of a friend. The interview process was straight forward. When I was hired it was prior to the EIG take over. With that being said I do not know what has changed if anything. I showed up for the interview in a suit. I was over dressed. The company atmosphere is very casual. There was a pre-interview questionnaire that I completed that was reviewed during the interview. Half of the questions required no additional follow up. The majority of the questions were basic trouble shooting. What is a 404 error. When do you get a 500 error, how to fix them and things like that. After the interview I was dismissed and they called me about 4 days later.

    Negotiation Details
    There was none for me - the interview was offering 12 - 14 and the initial offer was 11.50. I was looking for a part time job so the .50 cents wasn't worth potentially losing the job.

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at HostGator.com in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I sent in an application online and heard back only a few days later. I came in for an interview which was very quick and easy, it was a skills test where I had to find certain answers on their website and display that I had specific knowledge or ability to answer questions. Once finished I was given an offer and was contacted later with a start date.
