    I have been working at GuideSpark full-time for more than a year


    There is lots of upward mobility a Highly experienced management team that has built an excellent culture. Great kitchen and snacks.


    The biggest challenge for me is commuting down to the peninsula every single day. I'm happy to do it because I love the company but it has to be something you highly consider.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GuideSpark.

    Interview Details

    Phone screening, then an online assessment based on the required skills, then a phone interview, then a round of interviews with potential coworkers and supervisors at the office. Mostly behavioral questions, but make sure to be able to describe the position back to them and have watched some of their videos.
    Staff was all very nice, but could do a better job of letting candidates know what's going on (hard to get enough from their answers without feeling bothersome with questions).

    All contact (other than interviews) was done in email, which I was thankful for (hate waiting by the phone and playing phone tag).
