    I have been working at Airbnb full-time

    Pros

    The people that work here are some of the best I've met in my professional career. The culture is good. The founders are great people and I believe they have the best intentions for the company, the employees, and our community. There is a lot of opportunity to learn from different teams and possibly switch roles as departments grow and new team form.

    Cons

    Not a great vacation policy considering we are a travel company. Would love more focus on personal + professional growth. Things change fast, you need to be flexible to work here. People who leave the company are not treated very well leading up to/during their departure - this could definitely be improved upon.

    Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Airbnb.

    Interview Details

    The process was very extensive. Several phone screens, 8 in person interviews followed by more phone conversations. Everyone is super smart and very personable. Most of the interviews felt more like conversations. The ones that did not feel like conversations were due to the interviewer having a grudge for something. Perhaps they had a bad interview at a point in their life and they are passing it on. They weren't tough in a professional way but tough in a "I was talked down to so you will be as well." Those experiences really put a bad light on who makes up Airbnb.

    The core value questions are absurd. If their purpose is to be random, they do that. They do not give an opportunity to communicate any values of any sort.

    Interview Questions
    • What would you say at Airbnb's funeral?
      What was the last gift you gave?
      What is your advice to the founders?
      What was your last risk?
      What does success look like for this position (which was odd since there was no job description provided and I got grouped into a position I did not apply for).
