    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at HostGator.com (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is a very casual one. Dress attire is very casual and not relaxed. Do not wear a suit they don't care. The interview seems to be conducted by employees themselves. It's very scripted and elementary. They ask you a couple personality/customer service questions followed by some very simple technical questions. The interview is a very short one. If you're good at interviews you'll pass with flying colors.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at HostGator.com.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty good. I had a phone interview with the recruiter, and then she scheduled me for an onsite interview with a manager. She sent me an e-mail confirmation with study materials. I spent a few hours looking over the e-mail with all the links. I called and asked about cPanel and WHM, and the recruiter helped with what to study to learn what I needed to know about Linux and cPanel. I did have to call several times, but my class ended up being huge. They were doing a huge hiring push at the time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at HostGator.com.

    Interview

    You submit an application, they schedule you to come in. You are shuffled into a waiting area where there's a few more people milling about. One by one you are taken to a glass room where 1 or 2 people will ask you general questions about FTP, hosting, Wordpress, databases, etc. I'm not sure if they were actually judging on your demeanor under pressure or the correctness of your answers. I didn't feel confident leaving but they called me that same day to offer me the job. You are then hired into a "class" and you have to wait for your class to fill up with about 15 people who will be taught alongside you in a classroom-like area of the building (computers and all). You then go through a few weeks of learning about the company, memorizing the names of the founders and dates and things, what all the Hosting comprised of, building your own website (they give you your own personal server space for free, as long as you stay at HostGator), and then mock calls and chat sessions. Then, after weeks, you "graduate" or "fail" and either go home or stay at HostGator and start.

    Interview Questions

    • They will trip you up and ask you the difference between two site elements that are pretty much the same, but I don't think they really judge you on your answers, just want to know if you'll be honest about what you REALLY know and don't.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I applied online. The next day I scheduled an interview. I was interviewed in person, and they asked me about myself and experience. It was somewhat informal, but to the point. I felt very comfortable. They asked me basic technical questions, and also a bit about my personaility.
