Sales Development Representative Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Huddle in December 2013.
Interview Details Was emailed by a recruiter to set up the phone interview. Recruiter was very professional on the phone (although her dog kept barking). She seemed to really like me and passed me along to the hiring manager. I traveled down to SF for the interview with the hiring manager. Overall it went ok, very typical questions and office was nothing special. Everyone in the office was kind and professional. I was told if I passed the in-person I would have to come in again for a second in-person. A few days after the interview I was e-mailed saying they decided to move forward with other candidates.

Sales Development Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Huddle.
Interview Details I heard about the opportunity from a friend. Huddle was aiming to create a sales development team in there San Francisco location.
My first interview was over Skype with the head recruiter. The interview was very casual, she wanted to learn more about my background and why I would be a good fit for the role. After the initial screening I was invited to attend a group interview. The group interview was with the head recruiter and the the head of HR, it consisted of a number of different exercises. We first had to introduce ourselves and give an interesting fact about us, then we had to speak to the person next to us and try to sell them to the group. Other exercises included being assigned a position on a difficult topic (abortion) and debating with a fellow candidate and having the rest of the group vote for who won the debate. The last exercise was based on being stranded on island, a number of cards with objects were on lying on the table, you had to grab a good object and then in open discussion portray the value to the group and convince them that yours was the most needed. It was a very interesting process. The group interview lasted about four hours. The last interview was with the head recruiter and the sales manager about final details, I was offered the position a week later.

Sales Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Huddle in August 2013.
Interview Details Recruiter contacted me and scheduled a phone screen with her and the hiring manager. The call with the hiring manager was too much--it was over an hour long. The gesture was to be thorough but I felt someone who's need to be so thorough seemed odd for a first call. My gut feeling was something was off with the job and/or company.
