    Director of Sales Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Host Analytics (Redwood City, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    A 3rd party recruiter presented the Host opportunity based on the similarity of my experience and the role. Phone interview was pretty standard, discussed: experience, role, expectations. After about 1-1/2 wks of silence, I rec'd the invite to come on-site. During the on-site interview I met with 3 people. There were no odd-ball questions, a few situational questions. I was able to provide examples of my success in similar roles, seemed to go well, at the end I asked for the next steps, the hiring mgr was very non-committal, "I have a lot of people to interview, I'll let you know by Fri". The next day I got a call from the recruiter saying they are no longer interested.

    The company seems to be well run, but the Host Analytics product isn't sexy or cool, and the upside is there are a lot companies out there that are.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Host Analytics (Redwood City, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Three month process, countless phone calls and emails, three face to face interviews on separate occasions requiring travel to their office, more waiting, told by recruiter it was "in the bag" and then more waiting, super excited, offer coming soon....

    Then...no thanks, we'll pass.

    Wow.

    Hey Host Analytics, do you realize people prepare for hours and hours to come and interview? They learn everything they can about your industry, pain points, and people? They move things around in their busy schedules to make time for you?

    Have some respect for our time and intelligence please. Tighten up your recruiting process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Host Analytics (Redwood City, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 14 people, did a mini-case study, and presented a 30/60/90 day plan. Honestly, it was overkill. I didn't need to meet with that many people, especially since they didn't hire anyone (I think they're updating/changing the job description). This was a frustrating experience. The reason they didn't hire me was something they knew on day one (they wanted more of a particular type of experience) which made me feel like they just wasted my time. They did not have a realistic expectation for this role.

    Interview

    Host Analytics was great in communicating to me what the SDR job would entail, how I would be compensated, and what my career path would look like at this company. My interviews were very natural -- I wasn't hit with weird questions or led to believe that the SDR role is any different than it is. I was very impressed with the team here, and I knew from the start that I would fit in well.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult (but definitely expected) was when they ask to explain what the Host Analytics product does and who the competition is. For an entry-level sales person without a finance background, this was most difficult to explain in the beginning and is an important thing to know when applying to work anywhere.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Host Analytics (Redwood City, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews with everyone from the hiring manager to the CEO. Total number of interviews was 8. The interview process lasted for a couple of months. At times it seemed like the left hand didn't know what the right hand was doing. Interviewers were not prepared for the interview. The interviewee had to do most of the interview.

    It was like pulling teeth. They want the best, but they want to pay a minimum. Whatever they offer, they will go up about 20%.

    Activation Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Host Analytics.

    Interview

    The usual questions, plus some specifics about Excel and general accounting knowledge. Spoke to team members, team lead, and members of upper management. Pretty informal overall, and probably one of the easier interviews that I've participated in. Hiring process took a little longer than I might have expected for so small a company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Host Analytics (Redwood City, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    First piece of the interview was a phone screen. It lasted about 30-45minutes and was pretty casual. Some small talk, some talk about the position and the company. Next, I met with a couple of the VP's and a couple others that I would be working with directly. Pretty casual interview and easy going. The company sounds laid back, like they strive for success and want their employees to grow within the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Host Analytics (Chicago, IL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Wasn't as formal years ago, now you need to meet with multiple layers where a few years ago that was not the process. I met with the VP of Services and had already known a couple of the employees which helped quite a bit. I was already familiar with the product so the conversation was about how services did their job.
