I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at HotChalk (Campbell, CA).
Did a phone screen with the hiring manger. She explained it's an entry level position and potential growth since the company is doing good. The pay is below my expectation since their range is up to 50K. She said she will keep me in mind. A few weeks later, I was called in for an on-site. The on-site process was kind of unorganized. First, the hiring manager didn't never confirmed my on-site date until i followed up with her. Second, the hiring manager never told me what level to meet since they have multiple floors. I had to ask someone to direct me to the correct floor. When I came there, there was an overlapped and another candidate went in to interview first...awkward. I interviewed with one of the team members and lastly with the hiring manager. There was a social media quiz that you have to take to assess your skills and turn in by email. I put alot of effort in it and it's only common courtesy to let the candidate know if they were selected or rejected. I sent a follow up email to the hiring manager for any feedback and it was ignored. This painted a bad picture of the organization and I will never apply for any other position at HotChalk.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at HotChalk (Campbell, CA) in December 2010.
3 rounds of interviews: 1 phone interview, 2 follow-up in person interviews. Last round of interview began and ended with a 1:1 with the CEO, where the second 1:1 resulted in an on the spot offer. Questions were fairly easy and mainly personality-based as this was an entry level position. Friendly people.
