    Interview Details

    Casual phone conversation with someone at the office. It didn't really come off as an interview. It was more of a casual conversation of getting to know me and asking why I was interested in the position. They offered me the position right after the conversation.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Top Hat Monocle.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for the Campus Ambassador position which is essentially a Sales position in which you build a rapport with professors and convine them to implement the THM product in their lessons. The Campus Ambassador internship process was quite straight-forward. After emailing the company with a cover letter expressing my interest, I was called in a couple of weeks. The HR rep called and told me that I sounded like a great fit for the the position and asked me a few questions regarding the style/size of the classes at my university and whether I was able to work the required 10-15 hours per week.

    Besides a few "get to know you" questions, the process was quick, to the point and I was given a handful of materials to read over before giving my decision of whether or not to accept the position.

    Senior Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Top Hat Monocle in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Hiring was very smooth and simple when I got hired, however I was one of the earliest reps hired, so a couple of phone interviews with upper management and I had a job offer in my email, so super easy, just need to be personable and voice your sales experience.

    Interview Questions
    • there was nothing here too difficult to answer. Hardest question is where you see yourself in the company over the next few years, and since it is a growing start up company even management does not know where we will be yet. I would say nothing out of the ordinary here, simple process, straight forward questions (ex. tell me about your work experience etc...)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Try to push for a little extra on base salary as long as you have a solid sales background, and also try and get a stock option or profit sharing with extensive sales experience as well.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Top Hat Monocle in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter and initially I talked with him. He went through some some script with me to just get an idea about the kinda of developer I am. Then it took a few days to schedule an interview. The interview wasn't that hard but it was towards the end of the day and long -- was a little tiring. It would've been better if it was split into 2 interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • 1) Given 2 lists of integers, find the intersection. ListA = {1, 3, 5, 7, 2}, ListB = {2, 5, 10, 11, 4}. The method should then return {5, 2}.
      2) Write a method to evaluate an expression such as 1 + 3 - 2, 1 + 3 - ((4 + 2) + (1 - 2 + 3)) + 5

    Finance/Operations Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Top Hat Monocle.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took about 1.5 - 2 weeks in total. I had a phone interview for about 30 minutes, answered some questions, and was told after that we would be in touch.

    The next interview was a face-to-face at the office where they wanted to know the full details of my previous jobs, roles and responsibilities and my experiences on a whole (goods and bads).I think it was a way to show your true colours, show that you have conquered your struggles and lived life a little. That took about an hour. The questions were repetitive and I kept wondering if I was saying too much. I must admit that there were some lows that I was embarrassed to disclose, but there is really no point in lying about it, as long as you stay optimistic and learned from the past.

    Last interview took 2 hours, met two different people and answered behavioural and situational questions. I thought I had prepared extensively for the interview but there were still questions I was stumped on.
    Everyone was extremely friendly, but make you set aside ample time for the interview.

    Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Top Hat Monocle.

    Interview Details

    Received an email for an interview the same day I applied for the position. Initial phone interview was quite professional. I was invited in to an in-person interview in which I was asked detailed questions about high school and university (pretty weird as I have been a part of the corporate world for 5+ years). I got the feeling that they were trying to use the "cool" hipster approach to interviewing by asking random questions. I was invited to a second in-person interview which was a mess - completely disorganized. The first interviewer didn't even know I had already come in to be interviewed and then proceeded to only ask questions about a part time job I had for 4 months while in school - completely unrelated to my current skill set or profession. I then met with one co-founder of the company who grilled me for 2 hours about the internal process and KPIs at my current employer (a large software company). I guess they're still trying to learn how they should be managing their company and care more about gaining insight into industry best practices than finding good talent.
