    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at HERE Technologies.

    Interview

    1 phone interview - job offer received and accepted. Joined company less than 2 weeks after starting interview process. Hiring manager was knowledgeable and kind. Too bad senior management does not value these traits and decides to do layoffs primarily on office location not what value you bring to the company or your team.

    Manager Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HERE Technologies (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    STAY AWAY!!

    Here are the facts:

    1) I applied for a job at HERE Technologies.
    2) I was contacted within just a few days. {So far so good.}
    3) I had a telephone interview with the hiring manager, which went so well that I was immediately invited to onsite interviews. Those too went well (evidenced by the fact that the company then scheduled a “final” telephone interview with the manager of the hiring manager). {By all accounts, the call went well.}
    4) Two months after I had on-site interviews, I received an offer. I requested to review a few points of the offer and two days later, HR informed me that there was now a “hiring freeze” in effect. {Really? All of a sudden? After two months of stringing me along?}
    5) In fact, between receiving the offer and then having it rescinded due to a “hiring freeze” I had read on Glassdoor that the company had just reduced the 401K company match the prior week.
    6) Throughout the interview process, endless delays occurred due to employee travels. While I certainly know from experience the challenges associated with keeping up with office commitments while traveling, this “situation” seemed to be the norm at this company. Apparently, no business is conducted when someone is out of the office traveling. It’s amazing the company actually works in technology, because it certainly doesn’t operate with anything remotely coming close to a sense of urgency! These endless delays contributed to the two-month process. Perhaps if the company had its act together, I would have already been working at the company long before the” hiring freeze” went into effect. Perhaps I dodged a bullet. However, the company is now left with unfilled jobs and even more work on their desks due to endless feet-dragging. Congratulations! With such indecision and glacial decision-making, I think I’ll “pass” on buying any of the stock.
    7) Soon after the company told me that there was a “hiring freeze,” I saw that they’re still advertising for the job that I was offered. The job req description is exactly the same, but the posting date has been updated, indicating that the company was not only lying to me, but to all the other applicants who will also waste their time in applying and possibly interviewing. {The lack of respect, professionalism, even maturity, is astounding! Unfortunately, it’s all too common.}

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HERE Technologies (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was long and the communication from both the hiring manager and HR was non-existent. It was clear the hiring manager was unsure of what they were looking for but they did not do a very good job of communicating.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HERE Technologies (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I got a call from technical recruiter after few weeks of my online application submission. He asked general background question and scheduled interview with team lead. I had 1 hour technical interview with him and they will ask wide range of question like core java, data structure, algorithm, Scala and do some code exercise for half an hour.
     I passed the technical interview with team lead and then they scheduled onsite interview with other team members. Cannot disclose questions because of NDA. But this interview is pretty easy than the first technical interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at HERE Technologies.

    Interview

    The initial phone screen was brief, nothing real technical, but asked me in for face time anyway. They scheduled the entire day. The first interview was a barrage of useless technical details that pushed the extreme as far as useful programming. It was more of a game for the arrogant little dweeb who ended up lying about my skills. Every other person appeared to have a chip on their shoulder. Steer clear of this career sinkhole. The people were either bored with their position or very paranoid. This was the office in Burlington Massachusetts.
