    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me a few minutes after starting to fill out an application. Scheduled an interview within two weeks, received a call that I was hired about a week later. Overall, very casual/conversational interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at hibu in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter via Email to schedule a testing/interview time. I first took a written test for the position asking multiple choice questions and an essay. After the test I was directed back to the recruiter where he prepared me for the interview and better explained the company, position, benefits and interview process.
    I then had two interviews: the first was with the manager and associate manager of the department and the second was with the director of the department.
    Once the interviews were complete I shadowed someone within the department for about 30 minutes to get a better feel for the position and company in an environment with less pressure.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at hibu (King of Prussia, PA).

    Interview

    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

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at hibu (Bellevue, WA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn. After initial phone screen, I was invited in for a series of interviews both in person in their Bellevue offices and via teleconference with managers in Texas, Penn. and the UK. In all, a very time consuming process and not very well organized for an applicant seeking a senior position.

    Interview Questions

    • None. The business is on hard times. They didn't have a lot of questions about my qualifications, they were most interested in wondering why I'd consider working for them. After a while, I had to ask myself the same question. They clearly weren't trying to sell me on the place.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't think the team that I was going to manage, or the executive that I was going to report, to be very smart. Nor were they interesting, innovative or accomplished in technology or business. Also, even though the pay package was attractive, there was no potential in an equity upside. I doubt this company will be around much longer.
