    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HTC in May 2015.

    Interview

    The time process of interviewing was stretched out over a long period of time, which was frustrating because I had other opportunities to consider. Additionally, HTC did not give me interviews with people from the specific marketing department that I was applying for, but rather current employees from another team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HTC (Seattle, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The HR does a really nice job at first but the office I went to for interview (in downtown Seattle) looks like a small start up (they work on Zoe.com) with maybe 20-30 employees at most. You first talk to the product managers, then talk to couple of engineers for white boarding (which I liked) but then you get to talk to few old school engineers including the hiring manager. They seems to not be very pleasant and secondary agenda ! Questions were not clear when asked for clarification they said oh we are out of time. I Noticed the first younger engineers seem to know what they want and were asking good white boarding questions but the couple of old engineers that come in towards the end and the hiring manager seem to be inexperienced in hiring and asking good and clear questions. I don't blame them it's a small office and they probably don't do much of hiring very often.

Go to the interview it's done in the lobby of a hotel, the guy was 15mins late to interview me, on top of all that he criticized my PowerPoint and said it wouldnt work WHEN CLEARLY ITS WHAT HE ASKED TO SEE!! Told me how I'd sell htc over Samsung and basically the only tactics they have is push it and pray to God the customer changes their mind! Never told me it was for 1000 locations, lead me blind and gave horrible expectations to the interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HTC (Seattle, WA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    After a quick chat with a recruiter then another with a lead designer, I was sent to their studio. The interview was pretty much typical UX design interview — having whiteboard exercise, behavioral questions, and smartphone/ app experience questions. The interview wasn't difficult but was long (they didn't really care if had a break between interviews. ) and exhausting. It took a while to get the final result.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HTC (Seattle, WA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and received an email from the recruiter inviting me to chat about the position. The call was a mini interview in and of itself and went well. A phone interview with the hiring manager followed. It was a great, informative discussion and I was invited to come in for a portfolio review/in-person interviews. The in-person experience was fun. The most surprising part of it was that the entire studio attended the portfolio review. It was a little intimidating at first, but the people were fun and friendly, which made the experience very positive. They saved time by having two to three people interview me at a time, which I appreciated. They didn't "grill" me, and were very good at answering my questions. They were passionate about user experience and their product. Lots of great energy and passion.

    Interview Questions

    • Everything was pretty straight forward. I didn't feel ambushed, nor had to answer any pie-in-the-sky questions companies like Amazon are famous for.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    HTC communicated interest in hiring me and we're in the super early stages of negotiation. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can negotiate a happy medium.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HTC.

    Interview

    Started with contact from contract recruiter who asked pretty typical questions over the phone. Then with in person interview with HR rep and the hiring manager. I think they hired someone very similar to me but 10 years younger. While you got to love HTC for astonishingly avoiding the Microsoft OEM curse of low low profit margins and inevitable demise, my sense was that of place low on perks or true innovative guts.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HTC.

    Interview

    Had one phone screening with the recruiter, one with one of the lead MEs on the San Francisco team, then went in for two separate in person interviews. The first in person interview was in front of a panel of different ME and product design engineers on the team. Pretty easy, and no difficult questions. The second interview was with 2 partners who were higher up. Neither interview was difficult, but I was told that they had decided to offer the position to someone more junior.
