    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HubSpot.

    Interview

    Overall, I'm really disappointed in the HubSpot interview process. I'd heard great things about HubSpot, but the way my interviews have been handled have made me reconsider joining the company. I've now interviewed three times, and each separate interviewer has been at least 15 minutes late to our discussions. Once connected, they have all been vague about the role I applied for, then have ultimately described it in a way that is different from its description. They've also asked me to fill the role within days of interviewing for the first time.

    Pleasant enough people, but the lack of transparency and professionalism has been disappointing. In its Culture Code, HubSpot emphasizes transparency and "using good judgment"...it was disheartening to feel that they did not embody their own values for a prospective team member.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at HubSpot (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    A long process with multiple rounds that were all equally challenging. It started with a phone screen with a recruiter, then moved on to a 1 on 1 phone call with a BDR Manager. After that there was a role play with a different BDR manager, which was followed up by a tour of the office and 4 in person interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HubSpot.

    Interview

    Employees handled themselves very unprofessionally in their written communications, tried to call at off hours, and asked for salary requirements in the first screening call. The entire process was very secretive.

    Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HubSpot.

    Interview

    Didn't make it past the phone screens--easy questions but I was thrown off by how much background noise there was on the call and it was hard to concentrate on what they were asking. The recruiter was nice but kept making "uh-huh" noises in the middle of my answers so the interview felt very rushed. Seems like a good company but a mutually bad fit.

    Hmm, sorry to hear that--our open office plan definitely means some background noise, but it shouldn't be fully distracting--my apologies it was less than stellar as an overall experience. -Katie

    Customer Support Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HubSpot.

    Interview

    There was one phone interview, two skill interviews, and then three final interviews with managers. I was out of state during this process and everyone was extremely accommodating and willing to hold the interviews virtually. The interviews ranged from very casual to difficult questions regarding skill and personality. Overall, the process was positive and all the interviewers were very friendly and easy to talk to.

    Remote Customer Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at HubSpot (Middletown, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy. I applied for the role sometime after christmas and I also had two internal referrals as well. I received confirmation that I would be having a phone interview about 2 weeks after I had initially applied for the role. I was very excited about this potential opportunity as I felt my resume matched each criteria they had asked for. The phone interview went very well and I was informed I would be hearing back either Tusday or Wednesday for a follow-up. Early Tuesday morning I received an email stating I was not a good match and they would be pursing other canidates. I was very shocked and surprised at this out come so I asked for constructive feedback to help me better understand where I may have gone wrong. I never received any response from the initial email and I am very disappointed with this outcome. My suggestion is it would be helpful for contructive feedback to be given when it is asked. I will not know how to fix where I fall short if I dont have a good understanding. Overall I am very disappointed as I feel this would be an amazing company to work for.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HubSpot.

    Interview

    Interview process was very straight forward. Originally met with a recruiter at a Hubspot event who had encouraged me to apply. Process includes a phone screen with recruiter, phone interview with a BDR manager, sales role play with sales manager, and a final onsite interview. Received an offer two days following on site interview. Office is beautiful, culture is unmatched, and all the interviews were really conversational and I felt as though I really connected with everyone I had met during the process.

    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HubSpot.

    Interview

    I was contacted over the summer by a HubSpot recruiter who talked me through the company and then asked me to apply online, and submit a coding challenge. I submitted the coding challenge a couple weeks later, sent a notification to the recruiter, and waited for a response. I didn't do the best on the coding challenge, but I feel like I should have at least been notified of a response that I've been rejected or no longer considered, especially after multiple calls. It's been over 3 months.
