    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tyler, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at hibu (Tyler, TX).

    Interview

    The process involved contact by a third-party agent who asked several basic sales and marketing questions, after which a phone interview was scheduled. Eventually, after a lot of back-and-fourth between the agent and the company, a meeting is scheduled with a Director, which plays out like your typical sales position interview. After that, a ride-along is scheduled with an established rep, on which you're evaluated on your interaction with customers, sales processes and work ethic. After this (and a positive review), an offer is usually made.

    This is where it goes sideways.

    It turns out, the 3 month process by which I jumped through every hoop placed in front of me was a monumental waste of time. The Director with whom I had interviewed decided to hire a prior employee (coincidentally, a former Director, himself) without notifying HR or me. I received a text message (seriously), telling me that they were going with another candidate because he "had a little more SEO experience". What's not surprising is that the same position is available again.

    If you're considering this company, go in with your eyes open and your guard up, and if you're already working, don't count on a promise of an offer before you quit your present position.

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in King of Prussia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at hibu (King of Prussia, PA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    At least three interviews and written test. VP rescheduled interview twice claiming to be"sick", which is extremely unlikely for a department head.
    Don't expect to meet her , she is disrespectful in her dealings toward candidates.

    Their lackadaisical attitude couldn't be more transparent which is the reason they can not retain employees for an extended amount of time.

    Their low rating also indicates the lazy corporate culture ( jeans, and flip flops in the workplace)

    Very poor judgement in terms of employment selection.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waco, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at hibu (Waco, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter early September and after working with him wanted to see what this role with this company would be like. I had an interview set with the manager roughly a month later unfortunately as it took some time to communicate I assume. The meeting went great, I was invited to do the ride along. I went on field with their rep and I felt it was a great opportunity. After working with the recruiter and the hiring manager it was decided for me to move to the next step which would be the hiring managers boss. The recruiter informed me that they wouldn't take this much time or effort if they didn't believe they would not make an offer. That reassured me to a degree as it had been almost two months since the original conversation. Yesterday however, I received a call that the bosses boss and his boss decided that they were not sure if they would be adding another position in this territory. I was flabbergasted as it has been weeks since I had been working with them and then at the end of the process told they weren't sure if I was needed. Highly disappointed and feel that decision should have been made two months prior to their recruiter contacting me and having me drive around to meet them not once but twice. I feel they need to rethink their organization process and ensure no miscommunication occurs. A potential candidate does not need to be strung along for two months and then dropped because they aren't sure they need someone. Terrible.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at hibu.

    Interview

    There were multiple interviews. Two phone interviews and then I Had to travel for a couple of them. It's a very lengthy process. Makes you feel like it's a good decision. But after you get the job it's completely unorganized. You are given 3 months to grow A territory from nothing. All cold calls. And most companies do not like Hibu because they continue to have new reps 2 times a year, no consistency, makes the customers uneasy. They want someone to be there for them and create relationships. Hibu is like a car dealership. They want you to sell quick and move on. Then they hand over the account to phone sales. Doesn't make businesses feel
    Very important

    Outside Sales Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at hibu (Phila, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Called for an interview, spoke with person for about 45 minutes on the phone. Only one phone conversation.Person seemed to be all over the place. At one point, I asked if it was a bad time as he continually apologized because he needed to either take another call or answer a text. It seemed very bizarre but I went with it as I thought it was a test or part of the process to see how I would handle it. I am assuming he didn't think I handled it well. Regardless of the fact that I didn't receive a call back or second call to continue the process, just would encourage others who are looking to get outside sales experience to apply. It seems that they are "retooling" their sales force and one could learn much in that situation.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at hibu (King of Prussia, PA).

    Interview

    The process was fairly simple. It involved a call center simulation and proof reading an article. One interview with a Manager, which went very smoothly. The company definitely cares about your skills and experience, and if your background fits what they're looking for, you may get the job even without website experience.
