I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nor1 in July 2011.
Interview Details – Be familiar with commonly used hotel industry terminologies and be familiar with upsell. I went through a phone screen, 2 group interviews and had the pleasure of interviewing with the CEO.
Interview Question – They asked me to be introspective with a sample of their internal reporting. Very challenging right off the bat if you don't understand their business concept. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Their salaries are very competitive with the indudstry, even for a small company.
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Nor1.
Interview Details – Pretty normal interview process. First, I spoke with the human resources manager on the phone and then was asked to interview in person with a few people. I met with the hiring manager who I would report directly to, a couple of VP level people that were in the office and a person who was at manager level. So there was a good span of people and you get a good perspective from different people.
Interview Question – Pretty normal interview process. Talked about position, what is expected and my previous jobs. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – If you wait it out, you can get closer to salary you want and deserve. Otherwise, be prepared to take what they give you which will be very, very low.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Nor1 in January 2012.
Interview Details – 1. Phone interview with a senior engineer consisting of a live coding session and technical questions. The interviewer asked only computer science theory questions and the coding challenges were a mix of moderate PHP and SQL. The interviewer disagreed with my implementation of a singleton when my implementation was the textbook way of doing it.
2. Phone interview with the VP of engineering consisting of a live coding session and technical questions. Was asked computer science theory questions and the coding challenges were all "gotcha" type scenarios. One of the PHP challenges he couldn't complete himself, and one SQL challenge had an impractical solution.
3. Nearly a full day of on-site interviews.
Met with the same people as above and 5 others. I realized the culture probably wasn't a good fit for me, but otherwise it was mostly pleasant and a couple people had some really fun and challenging questions.
4. Phone interview with the VP of engineering again to discuss the possibility of interviewing instead for a Devops position.
5. Phone interview for Devops position. Turned out the position was mainly operations and not a good fit.
