    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hotjar (Wrocław (Poland)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The process is quite non-standard and fun. It's really cool because one gets a chance to collaborate with the hotjarians, so she can see how the communication in the company works. Another thing is: most of the companies require you to do some coding exercises, but that's the first time I had to do a demo of the code I've written.
    The downside is the length of the process - it can take even 2 months to finish all the stages.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you implement a user session recording feature, both front-end, and back-end?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Hotjar in September 2017.

    Interview

    Hotjar has a unique and well thought out multi-stage process including an initial application process online, followed by answering questions by making a video, then followed by a full interview (online), then a 3-day task (for which you are compensated) and then finally a task review presentation.

    The process is not short, but it ensures that you get to know the company well and the company gets to know you. It is a breath of fresh air compared to hiring practices that you might be used to.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hotjar in August 2017.

    Interview

    It was quite a long process: initial application, video answering questions, interview, big coding task and review of that task. However it really gave me a good chance to meet how Hotjar works from the inside and make sure both that I was a good fit for them, and them a good fit for me. It works both ways.

    Interview Questions

    • The test was really cool to do and prepare. Felt a bit like a real project where you could play around a bit.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Hotjar in March 2017.

    Interview

    After discussing salary range and benefits, I decited to proceed. They sent me an email saying "Please send us a video answering these 5 questions", which was a very cool way of knowing the applicant. A minute later, I got another email saying "You didn’t make it to the next round". It was unprofessional.

    I recorded the video anyway, since noone replied my emails about the confusion. After 3 weeks of silence, I got "haven't made it to the next round" email. It was an horrible experience.

    Interview

    tl;dr Hotjar HR forgets about interview and do not respond to emails for weeks

    The whole interview was a disaster. Before sending CV there is a huge form with a recruitment task and many, many question which can take long time to write - but this is not the problem. After applying there was few weeks of silence, then one rather short message about being accepted and next few weeks of silence (despite asking about progress through email and Facebook) they just send "sorry we forgot about you" and In the end they responded with nothing more than "sorry, but we do not want you" and asking about feedback from rather long form and recruitment task was not responded.
    I assume that this is they way of checking if you really want to work there - if you are patient enough to wait weeks for ANY message from them.
