I worked at Hootsuite full-time (More than a year)
Hootsuite was one of the best places I could ask for to start my career.
Growing with the company for 3 years I've seen the culture slide and its turning into something many people didn't sign up for. You are seeing a lot of the old guard change at Hootsuite and there is a reason, I hope they can bring it back to what it once was
Advice to Management
Don't turn your sales culture into SAP. Money / IPO isn't everything
I applied online. I interviewed at Hootsuite.
I got an email from the recruiter to talk to me about my application on the next day. During the call, she described the role in detail. I did not have customer facing background however I did have transferable skills from my earlier experience.
It was explained to me they were looking at someone with experience in customer facing roles and that was mandatory. I get that! It is not easy pivoting experiences and there are few companies that are willing to take a risk like that.
I just wish the recruiter had seen my profile and experience and then called me instead of wasting both our time. Or at least been open to a discussion about my skills and experiences.
