    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Jive Communications in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online on a Friday called in for an interview on Tuesday, immediately sent an excel spreadsheet test and then promptly asked to come in for a final interview the next day. Pretty normal interview set up. Walk in, the building is fantastic, amazing environment, felt extremely comfortable upon walking in. Was taken into an interview room, standard questions. Could tell that my interviews were extremely passionate and comfortable with Jive. Excel test pretty standard. Final interview had a rep from the accounting office. Strange questions, things like internal communication lines and how to disperse info within colleagues. But understandable!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Not much in the way of negotiations. They said the pay range and asked what I was hoping for. Was treated extremely fairly.

    I applied online – interviewed at Jive Communications (Orem, UT) in February 2015.

    Interview

    After applying, I received a call and was asked to come in for a interview. When I got there there was no one at the front desk. I called the number the gave me but no one answered. Had to wait till someone came out to let them know I was there to interview. A couple of days later, I received an email sayin I didn't get the job, then an email saying I was still be considered.

Frankly I rejected at second phone interview, so i don't know about third on site interview. First interview is not hard, moreover he is very friendly not to give any stress .

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Jive Communications (Orem, UT) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Submit resume online, submit sample writing exercise, face-to-face interview. The sample writing exercise was actually fun. They asked me to write a blog article on one of a few assigned topics. I thought the entire interview process was fair and worthwhile. They didn't ask any odd questions or do anything inappropriate. Of course, they offered me the job, so I thought their judgment was good. It seems like a good place to work but probably more so for an entry-level candidate.

    Reasons for Declining

    Just didn't seem like the right fit for me at this time. Also, I'm currently employed, and their offer was about the same as my current compensation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Jive Communications (Orem, UT) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Went through 3 rounds of interviews.

    1. Phone screening - They were interested in my background and projects. Expect questions such as why Jive?

    2. Homework - A simple programming problem to be solved within 72 hours.

    3. Onsite - Was interviewed by 4 developers(1:1). Mostly it was to get to know your projects, skills. One simple program they asked is FIZZ/BUZZ problem. Last round was to meet CTO and let him know some details about your background.

    Of late the interview process is slightly modified where you have to pair program with one of the developers and demonstrate your skills.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no unexpected questions.
      Challenges you faced in your project? How did you handle them?

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Jive Communications (Orem, UT) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Met with CEO, COO, CTO, and several other sales people and engineers. They asked intelligent questions and wanted to make sure that I would be a good fit for their company culture. I could see they were very proud of what they had accomplished, but were not arrogant and made me believe that they wanted input on how the company could grow faster with better customer support.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked how I would approach the job once hired. What would my strategy be to prospect and close new customers for the company. This wasn't an unexpected question, in fact, I would have been concerned if they hadn't asked this question.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiations were cordial, and they were extremely responsive. I had salary demands and ultimately we were able to settle on a compensation package I felt was fair.
