    Approves of CEO

    I worked at HotChalk full-time (More than a year)


    A very "start-up environment" where you can take ownership and drive positive change, very flat hierarchy - CEO's office is an open door!


    Getting those changes to happen sometimes requires a long "buy-in" process. Change happens, slow but steady - organization could be more "nimble"

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path you're going and continue to drive the success the finance team has plotted out. The sky is the limit. Keep the door open for me to boomerang someday please!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at HotChalk (Tempe, AZ).


    Unorganized! First interview/interviewer was great , Second interview was with a male so-called manager that smelled of stale cigarette odor with a "i just rolled out of bed look " I could tell he had a false sense of "grandiose" Did not seem to possess true leadership qualities .
