    I worked at Hubba (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hubba and I have a love hate relationship. Love because the people at this company are brilliant, inviting and willing to help. Hate because I now have such high expectations for future companies. I worked here as a co-op student and had little to no idea of what to expect going into it. I read all of the reviews and honestly thought it was just people inside the company who wrote them because they were all 10/10. But after working with such an amazing, inclusive and funny team I can understand why they have a perfect score on Glassdoor. If you ever have an opportunity to work here, take it, hold onto it and never let it go!

    Cons

    I honestly have nothing bad to say about the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being selective on who you hire to ensure Hubba maintains its upbeat, inclusive and innovative culture.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hubba in April-2017.

    Interview

    Summary: HR rep, while nice, is not at all organized nor did she make me feel like my time or talent was valued. Conflicting expectations for the role confused me as a candidate.

    Got an email nearly 2 days after having applied. I remember being impressed by the quick turnaround time.

    Phone Screen: Went well. General overview of the resume and past positions and education. Was invited for an in-person interview the next day.

    Warning #1: I got an email the following morning from the HR rep stating that she forgot to note down the interview time, and proposed a time the following week (which didnt work for me). I reminded her of the original time later that afternoon, and she re-accepted. Stressful situation that could have easily been avoided.

    In-Person Interview: I was impressed by how courteous the staff were. As I was waiting, at least 4 different employees asked if I needed help.

    Met with CFO/COO. Great, deep chat and I could tell he was an intelligent guy, despite his probing for other job offers.

    Warning #2: The executive went on to describe the role as extremely operations focused, to the point where it bore no resemblance to the posting which led me to apply in the first place. This made me uneasy, as it wasn't clear to me that Hubba even knew what it was looking for.

    Afterwards I proceeded to an in person interview with the same HR rep from earlier.

    Warning #3: At one point, the HR rep was TOTALLY distracted as I answered her questions. I stopped talking, watching as she was fixated on a co-worker across the room, and proceeded to interupt me with a comment on her co-workers habits.

    Once again, questions were the exact same from the phone screen (yawn.), making me feel as if nothing had been noted down.

    Received a rejection email a few days later. When I asked for feedback, i received a nice, but generic message that didnt help me at all.
