    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Hyland Software in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was incredibly laid back. My manager now walked into the room wearing flip flops and he had gauges in his ears. That just speaks to the kind of culture that we have hear at Hyland Software. Im currently wearing a suit because I dress in C-level attire on Thursdays. They asked me questions about my experiences and aspirations, just like any other company would.

    • I think that one of the unexpected questions that I was asked would be, why should I pick you out of all our other candidates?   View Answer

    They extended an offer to me over the phone as I was in Athens, Ohio for school. They explained the compensations and perks and at that point she emailed the contract with the information that she had verbally read over the phone. I then signed the contract agreeing to the terms and then showed up for orientation day to finish up the paperwork.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Hyland Software in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    After a three step interview process, I must say this is the most thorough interview processes I have ever been through. Not only was Hyland Software able to interview me to make sure I was the right fit for the position, I was able and encouraged to interview them to make sure that I want to be part of the organization.

    Before each interview I was asked to do some homework that allowed me to show my skills with communication and presentation. I thought the poem requirement on the initial application was an interesting and fun way to break up an otherwise dry process.

    There was a very quick negotiation over the offer, and then I was onboard. Time will tell if I enjoy being a member of Hyland Software as much as the majority of the recent reviewers.
