    I worked at Hitwise full-time (more than 3 years)


    Hands down, this was the best place I worked. The team was energized, management was motivational and fair, and there was definitely an entrepreneur feeling to coming to work.


    When the company was bought by Experian, the culture shifted to become more corporate and all of the core people left. Not sure how it is there now.

    Director of Sales Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Hitwise in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had several phone interviews before an actual face to face, 6 to be exact. I understand being careful, but maybe start using Skype. It is difficult to continue to be excited about an opportunity after being asked the same questions behind a curtain. This is also a position that is customer facing, so at least Skype would let them know if I am actually presentable in front of a client. Once I did get a face to face, the gentleman was arrogant and would not look me in the eyes. He continued to talk about how great he was and I could barely explain my skill sets or answer his questions without interrupting him. I did wait until he finished, and once I would start to answer, he would interrupt me to brag about himself again.

    Interview Questions
    • No questions were really out of the ordinary. Nothing really stumped me, which I guess was also surprising since I had so many interviews. No practical questions either.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Not really excited about the cultured. Not a good fit.
