    I have been working at GrubHub part-time (less than a year)


    Benefits are great...even for us part timers. I have to say the best part about my job currently are the people I work with, never a dull day with them. I guess everyone has a different experience BUT so far I've had so much support from lead/supervisors/managers and peers around me letting me in on the things of GrubHub and what to do and with great advice on how to move up and around the company if interested. I'm thankful for that. Also it's not all that bad when you're given a certain and ample amount of Grub to use during the week(s) to be fed and not to mention the activities they plan (sometimes inconvenient for most) to keep the work culture fun and growing.


    The high turnaround at GrubHub concerns me at times. They're always hiring and then when they do they look to the outside for talent when they have an abundance of talented & seasoned representatives within the company, no matter the position they hold to move up from where they began.

    Also you can work afternoons one quarter and be working late late nights the consistency or set schedule so be prepared for that. If change isn't your thing...then this isn't the place for you. Things change day to day and you must adjust, great quality to have but it can take a toll on the employees and their personal lives as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place eyes on your current staff for the talent you're looking for to fill other positions within the company and stop hiring externally so much. It discourages a lot of us when we feel there is no room for growth.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at GrubHub.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter working for GrubHub, and scheduled an interview.

    The first interview was at the recruiter's office. This was with a director of engineering, but was only a 20 minute slot. I showed up, and was shown in to see the director as soon as the prior candidate was finished. We did a technical interview where he asked me to write a method to implement an algorithm, then talked about improving its performance, handling bad inputs, etc. After my 20 minutes were up, the interview was over. This session was very abrupt, and I got the vibe that the director was a good guy, but he was very terse and brusque here. We did not have any chance to talk about the role or company.

    After this I had a brief call with HR. They wanted to schedule an on-site interview. It sounded like I would interview with 4-5 people, but not the actual hiring manager or team I may end up with.

    I decided not to proceed with GrubHub, because if I'm going to spend a whole day interviewing, I'd like to at least meet people I would work with, and my possible future manager. Also, I felt the whole process thus far was designed to meet their needs, at the expense of my own. For example, the technical screen could have been over the phone, as opposed to requiring me to come downtown.

    Interview Questions
    • Imagine you are writing a point-of-sale system. Write the method that does XYZ. Now, what about performance? What if we need it to work with a very large input? What if it has to work in other currencies? Et cetera.   Answer Question
