No Offer – Interviewed in Columbus, OH Sep 2012 – Reviewed Feb 4, 2013
Interview Details – They came to the career fair at my college campus. After a brief interview I was called for a another interview the next day. Over here the set up was much more personal and professional. I was interviewed by a Hyland employee for over 10 years and he asked all sorts of questions ranging from behavioral to technical to even ridiculous. I just kept up and tried building a rapport with him. In the end it proved to be an unsuccessful attempt, but hey it was my 1st interview and I learned quite a bit from it.

Interview Details –
From the point of applying online till the phone interview: 4+ weeks; no contact at all until the call was scheduled. I was actually surprised to even hear from them at that point.
Phone interview: Woman to whom the position reported was abrupt, disinterested and offered nothing to make me feel like this would be a great place to work. She actually drained my energy during the phone call (and that's never a good sign), and it wasn't because her questions were challenging. She was just chilly and giving off a "I'm wasting my time" interview vibe.
Interview Question – No difficult questions, just an unfriendly interviewer (who would have ended up being my unfriendly boss.) Answer Question

Interview Details – I was hired awhile ago so this does not reflect the current practices. At the time group interviews were used. I think interviews have shifted to having more technical tests where difficult software questions are asked. My hiring process started with an on-line application, followed being invited to Hyland to take some written technical tests, followed by an interview event where about a dozen candidates each went through three interviews. One of these interviews had me in a room with five or six managers and team leads which was pretty nerve wracking! I 'passed' the group interview and was invited for for a final interview with the people in the area I'd be working with. After passing that interview I received a job offer.
Negotiation Details – The offer was shockingly low. I asked for an increase and they gave me a modest one.

Interview Details – I learned of the position through a campus career fair, and talked to a recruiter there. They seemed to like me enough to schedule an on campus interview the next day and after that they said they'd like to do an interview in West Lake, and that they would contact me to finalize it. The on-site interview included a short technical exam, and HR interview, and a technical interview with two developers. After that it took about 2 weeks for them to call back and tell me they would like to move forward and do a background check before an offer.

Interview Details – I made my initial submission through their website about a week later I got a call from a junior recruiter and scheduled an interview. There are actually three interviews and a written test. The first interview is with managers from the department. They were very professional and ask many questions. The second interview is with someone from human resources. Again, they were very professional. She left me with a written test which was timed. You only had to complete what you could inthe time limit. The final interview was a technical interview and test. It is a basic computer skills test.

Interview Details –
Responded to a web posting about the open position, filled out standard web forms, and then was asked to write a poem (...yes, a poem!), about my previous job. Now maybe this is something that is not totally unheard of for some IT companies, but it was the first time I had ever seen it. Part of me was initially turned off, but I chose to have a little fun with it.
About a week later I got an email follow up to set up a time to speak with a recruiter for an initial phone interview. The lady interviewing me on the phone was very robotic and fast talking. Called 10 minutes late and made no attempt to apologize, no quick small talk to develop rapport, just jumped right in with basic behavioral type questions. Clearly reading from a script, and with a robotic tone that insinuated she probably was stuck doing the same thing 25 times that day. Extremely fast talker made for an uncomfortable interview as I needed an extra second or two to replay in my mind what question she was actually saying. It ended very abruptly and I was continually rushed throughout the 20 mins or so I was on the phone.
Tough to judge a company based on one phone call, but unfortunately thats all I have to go on. No follow up email giving a status, so 3 weeks later I am left to assume that they have moved on.

Interview Details – I was called for an interview which consisted of a skills test, a 1 on 1 with the recruiter, and an interview with the supervisor and manager.
Negotiation Details – I was asked what I would accept as a minimum, and they ended up offering me more than what I said. After I got the job, they sent me an offer letter. There was no negotiation, but they figure in your education, experience, and minimum salary requirement to make you an offer. It was exactly what I was hoping for.

Interview Details – The entire interview process was fairly easy and organized. I corresponded with HR through email and they would respond fairly quickly (within a couple hours). Skills test was pretty general, couple days later I was asked to schedule a phone interview. Due to my busy schedule they were able to split up the interview (HR & Project Manager) between two calls in the same day. They were very casual and friendly during the interview. Got an offer via phone call about an hour later. Overall good experience.

Interview Details – A typical phone interview, a person from HR called me and we had a 15-minute talk, she asked me several questions emphasizing they were looking for talents who are good at RDBMS. Apparently, you had to know softwares more than SQL. Some behavioral questions, i.e. tell me about your strength, your weakness.
