Development Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and 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.
Business Development Representative Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at hibu in November 2013.
Interview Details – Looking for anyone with SEM, website, SEO sales experience that the manager doesn't have to manage or develop.They are constantly hiring due to overwhelming micromanagement and unrealistic goals. Their reputation was so bad from YellowBook, that the changed the name but the company is still ran the same.
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Set pay scale. Little salary, mainly commission.

Customer Service Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied 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.
Interview Question – Why do you want to work here, you won't make the kind of money you are used to. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Not a lot of negotiation available. It's more like here is what we are paying and here is your commission rate, take it or leave it

Senior Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at hibu in October 2013.
Interview Details – I learned of hibu through a recruiter. He gave the lowdown on what the company was, what the job was, and told me a bit about the hiring manager.
After my resume was submitted (through the recruiter) I had a 30-minute phone screen where I chatted pretty casually with the hiring manager about my experience, what technologies the team works with, etc., and ended up scheduling an in-person interview.
There was a second position for which I'd also phone-screened in similar fashion, so we had interviews lined up for both positions in a 4-hour block. I met with each hiring manager, then two pairs of each manager's employees, who mostly peppered me with technical questions.
One of the hiring managers asked me to code on a whiteboard, and one set of his employees similarly asked me to code on paper.
Interview Question – I was given a difficult problem in which I had to design an algorithm to meet a certain set of requirements. The challenge here was that it had to meet vert strict requirements of algorithmic complexity of both memory and space--one or the other could be done, but I did not see a way to meet both constraints.
