    - A great team
    - Opportunity to learn a lot about the Web and technology startups
    - Lots of room for growth and advancement
    - Fast-paced work environment with lots of new challenges every day; it's never boring

    I learned more in my first month at Mahalo than I have in years at other jobs. It was the first company at which I was given the opportunity to step up and take on more responsibility, for which I am extraordinarily grateful. As well, I made many friendships at Mahalo with amazing, talented colleagues that have continued to this day.


    - General lack of focus, which can make the work frustrating
    - Difficulty setting/communicating priorities from senior management to employees, freelancers
    - Rigorous and demanding schedule

    Mahalo can be a difficult place to work. The hours are demanding, the expectations are high (some might say unreasonable), the pressure is intense. Perhaps most challenging of all is the frequent shifting of priorities, goals and responsibilities, which can give work there a "1 step forward, 2 steps back" feeling. Overall, I had a worthwhile experience there, but it is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Mahalo could benefit from leadership listening to employees - not just hearing them out, but taking opinions seriously - and being more open to fresh ideas and perspectives. Often it feels as if the agenda is being set Interviews

    Interview Questions

    • They want to know if you'd be willing to work overtime, about 60 hours a week.   Answer Question


    I refused the 60 hours a week and made a deal to work 40 hours at my base salary. I worked there for 7 months, and my supervisor basically lied to the CEO about our agreement, and I was forced to resign Awards & Accolades
