I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at HostGator.com.
Interview Details – Initial communications were a bit slow. I think it took about a month from application submission to initial email to set up an interview. Once an interview was scheduled, I received a study guide for possible questions I might encounter on the interview. It was essentially an intro to web hosting. The interviewer asked me some pretty basic questions about DNS and other services that I would use on a daily basis. After that came salary discussion and then start date.
Interview Question – I had come in during some pretty bad weather, and I got asked why I showed up when te interview had been rescheduled. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I started high, and they talked me down a little. If you got to this point, they already want you on staff, so be reasonable, but don't settle too low.
I applied 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.
