I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week – interviewed at Hudson Advisors (Dallas, TX).
Interviewing process was very professional and timely. Everyone I interviewed with was extremely professional. The directions were perfectly clear, the location was great. The building is located just outside of downtown, which is perfect to avoid the downtown traffic.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Hudson Advisors (Dallas, TX) in March 2014.
The interview took place at Cityplace on Haskell Ave and 75 in Dallas. The interview took place in a conference room with the manager, and two IT peers. The interview lasted about 90 minutes. After the interview, I was given a brief tour of the office, shown where I might sit, and where the others in the IT department were located.
- Would you like a full-time or contract-to-hire position? 1 Answer
Reasons for Declining
Initially, they asked if I wanted full-time, or contract to hire. I asked for full-time. Several days later, they said they didn't have the open head count, and could only offer a contract to hire position. The rate was reasonable, but I was looking for a full-time offer.

The interview process is relatvey easy and typical of most companies. A phone interview followed by an in-person interview at Hudson's offices with multiple managers. The hiring decision was made quickly. Many questions were asked specific to the job and the prospective candidate's abilities and job experience. I was also asked what "I knew about Hudson", so take a quick look at the website an have a few talking points to quickly recite. Psychological / general questions were not asked ( ie. what's your greatest weakness, why should we hire you, etc.)
- I was asked my opinion of other individuals applyng for work at Hudson. 1 Answer
I countered with a higher offer which Hudson accepted.

The process took 2 days – interviewed at Hudson Advisors (Dallas, TX) in September 2008.
The first interview, phone, was pleasant and very quick. Typical phone questions. I was called in two days later to interview with a manager. She was not in but interviewed with her assistant manager. She gave me the ok and I interviewed a few days later with a VP and Assistant Controller. The interview questions were fairly standard. The Assistant Director was to be my supervisor and seemed pleasant and personable. I specifically asked about work life balance and was assured that they emphasized this. About 3-4 days later I was offered the job.
Once employed the work/life balance turned out to be a joke. They want to work you till you drop without regard for any outside life or responsibility.
- Standard sets of questions. Nothing out of the ordinary. Answer Question
Very easy. They offered, I countered and we met in the middle. Benefits are very good for a firm of this size.

I applied through other source. The process took a day – interviewed at Hudson Advisors in May 2009.
It was a pleasant interview. The people at the company seemed very freindly. I felt good about how the interview went and was told that we would talk further. However, I never heard anything from that point on nor was able to get a hold of anyone to follow up.
