I worked at Hubba (More than a year)
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!
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.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hubba (Toronto, ON) in October-2017.
The first round is a phone interview. However, the HR only spent 7 minutes with me including greetings. I am so surprised that there was only one question in this interview, that was to talk about my experience. I'm wondering that this part had already shown in my CV in details, how came to ask again in a phone interview without any technical questions? It's really a waste of time. Or Hubba can give candidates a coding test to select the appropriate talents. If Hubba refuses someone only according to their previous experience, CV can show everything clearly beforehand. If Hubba thinks that their experience doesn't match the job requirements, why waste our time? This is the most ridiculous interview I've met.
