    Candidatura

    Ho presentato la mia candidatura online. La procedura ha richiesto più di 2 mesi. Ho sostenuto un colloquio presso Hotjar a gennaio 2017.

    Colloquio

    This interview process was a mixed bag of red flags.

    1. They don't really respect your time.

    David Darmanin explains in a Recruitee interview why there is such a long form to fill out before you can even submit your resume. He's trying to scare away anyone who doesn't really want the job. Normally, if you're going to ask your applicants to do something really time consuming, you reserve that step for a shortlist of top candidates. He claims Hotjar only reads one of the questions in the form anyway, so why not start with that? Make the larger form an automated second phase.

    Introducing big time investments early in the process has the effect of necessarily wasting hundreds of your applicants' hours. (Think about it. If you post a job and you get 200 applicants who each have to spend an hour thoughtfully filling out a long form, and you only hire one of them, you have necessarily wasted 200 hours right off the bat.) Designing an application process that requires large up-front time investments is a really bad way to show applicants that you respect their time (which is ironic because Hotjar paid for the 4th task stage).

    2. Despite already being in the employer's advantageous position, they press their advantage in a number of ways that are sort of exploitative.

    David also talks about Hotjar's dedication to honesty and transparency, and says they divulge their salary range up-front. The opposite is pretty much the case. After completing the form and submitting my CV, the very first contact I received from them was a request for my absolute bottom salary. Like the other reviewer, I responded that I expected their range was fair, and asked what it was. They responded that they required my base minimum to avoid wasting their time on someone whose expectations were too high.

    The only thing transparent about this was the way they were trying to establish a low-ball quote off the bat, and to apply pressure on your salary floor by forcing you to enter a twisted cheap-labour competition with the other hundreds of applicants they never forget to remind you that you're up against.

    3. They are kind of precious.

    One of the last questions in the 3rd phase is whether you're interviewing for other jobs. Obviously, everyone who is marketable enough to get to this stage is applying and interviewing for other jobs. Job application fidelity is not a thing. Expecting candidates to only interview for one job is like expecting Hotjar to only interview one applicant.

    It is totally unreasonable to expect fidelity *before you're even hired*, particularly when the process takes 2 months, they take their time to let you know if you've made it to the next round, and they remind you of how overwhelming the competition is at every step. What does Hotjar think? That if this doesn't work out and I don't get the job, I should just starve because Hotjar is the only company I will ever work for?

    It is either unbelievably precious or straightforwardly exploitative. The real function of making you lie about whether you're interviewing with other companies is that you can't use your actual marketability to alter the salary floor they made you establish in the beginning. If you're being offered 5k more in another opportunity, you can't use that to suggest your real market value. In that scenario, if you really do want to work for Hotjar, you just have to suck up a 5k difference annually, because you can't very well go back and say "actually, it seems I'm worth this much," even if it's true.

    Conclusion

    These flags suggest that Hotjar is less concerned with filtering for a combination of quality + interest than quality + desperation. The job market is such that cool tech start-ups can make steep demands of their applicants, who will comply even if they think it isn't fair.

    Hotjar wants highly skilled, ambitious employees with lots of diverse skills and a track record of growth, but they want to pay as little as possible for it. The effect of forcing applicants to make huge time investments, low-ball themselves off the bat, and forfeit the bargaining chip of competing offers has the effect of debasing the applicant's position at the negotiating table. Does your having prevailed over 200 other applicants mean that you're in a strong position to negotiate a fair salary?

    No:

    1. You stand to lose 2 months of invested time and Hotjar doesn't really stand to lose anything (there are 5 other candidates just like you at the negotiating table).

    2. You started by divulging your very base minimum, which you were forced to establish while competing with 200 other people with varying levels of marketability instead of 5 other top-tier candidates. They already know the minimum you will accept (and if you try not to accept it, they can ask you why you were willing to before but not now, which makes you look bad).

    3. They forced you to say that Hotjar is ostensibly your only option.

    Flag, flag, flag.
