Slow to change, the status quo is quite engrained. Office is out in the middle of no where on 360. Lower than industry average compensation. Outlook for promotion is not that great.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Be more open to Innovation. Allow employees to challenge the status quo. Empower employees to become better with career advancement and skill development. Promote employees internally rather than hiring externally. Pay industry average wages.RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Indeed.Interview Details
I applied and got contacted by an HR rep about 2 weeks later asking me to complete a writing exercise. We set up a time through email, and about 15 mins past our agreed time, they sent me a Word document containing the following questions (listed below). The instructions were to complete the questions and send them back within an hour, which I did.

How seriously do we take site simplicity at ZipRecruiter?
So seriously, we have on multiple occasions REMOVED wholly built features because they weren’t receiving wide enough adoption by our customers.
Therefore while it may seem like a no-brainer to add LinkedIn and Indeed Apply buttons to the site, we took nothing for granted.
After a two-week A/B test last February, we reached statistical significance and concluded that adding the two apply buttons increased the overall volume of applications by 5%.
That was against a run rate of 200k+ applications, so a 5% lift was an additional 10k applications per month.
To put the magnitude of that win into perspective, were ZipRecruiter to try to buy enough traffic to generate 10k incremental applications it would cost us between $20k -$30k. This was a big win.

Write a brief follow up addressed to HR rep in XXX explaining what you will bring to the Indeed team.
The next day I was contacted by the same HR rep asking to set up a phone interview. On the day of the interview they called me on time, and the interview lasted for about 25-30 mins. Nothing too complicated, questions were very specific to the role (whether I knew certain programs,etc)--no behavioral questions were asked. The rep seemed nice and polite; however, I couldn't help but notice his/hers demeaning manner of speaking. I had a very sour feeling after I hung up the phone. Even though they assured me that they would respond in 24 hrs, no response was received. This overall interview experience left quite an unfavorable impression about the company and I wouldn't be inclined to accept an offer or apply again.
The salary they are offering for this position is in low 40s.Interview Questions
