    I interviewed online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at hibu in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Good interview process, the managers were thorough and asked relevant, pointed questions about experience, time to next step was quick but in hindsight that is due to high turnover, they are always in need of interviewing new candidates.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, they offer a fairly low salary and tell you the potential commission and bonus and you can take it or leave it.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at hibu.

    Interview Details

    hiring was terrible several years ago and presumably got better over the years. My interview was unorganized and at a time of divided leadership which eventually got much better. Through the changes of ownership, upper management and HR became much more aligned but eventually the yellowbook takeover, then hibu made very corporate.

    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate but that was the culture several years ago, not the case today.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Mount Vernon, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mount Vernon, WA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at hibu in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview was great, initial interview was about 90 minutes long and both sides were able to ask and get answered a lot of questions. They called within 2 days and made me an offer so they got back right away. Had to wait 7 weeks to start though because of next training session and had to stay in California for 3 weeks. Was a pretty good company, however corporate back office has really messed things up that were working very well. As the saying goes if it ain't broke don't fix it.
