POP – Why Work For Us?

We deliver substance—not stunts.

POP combines strategy, creativity, and technology to craft insight-driven campaigns, content, and experiences that create value for our clients and their customers.



In 1996, we began building a place for doers and thinkers to be inspired by their passion for creating digital experiences. As a digitally centered creative agency, we've grown to 200+ employees committed to delivering award-winning solutions that fuel growth for ambitious brands.

Today, from our offices in Seattle and San Jose, Costa Rica, we help clients like Target, Microsoft, Nike, HTC, and Starbucks discover new opportunities to enhance and expand their businesses. We do this by thoughtfully crafting innovative interactive experiences for the web, mobile devices, and emerging digital platforms.

    Pros

    A great group of folks who always want to do great work. The passion is contagious and the challenges are diverse. There aren't many places POP's size where you can conceive an idea, design it and ship it with the same group of people. This is not a shop that bangs out the same website over and over again for different clients. Leadership is fortunately always looking for the next challenge. Work/life balance is great if you want it to be.

    Cons

    It can be hard to hone a craft when every engagement is so varied. There's a fine line between "exciting new challenge" and "fire drill." Working on several projects at once can kill focus.

    Advice to Management

    Share the vision with employees and inspire them to buy into and extend it; don't feel like you have to come out of the gate with a fully-baked agenda every time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at POP (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    1) Phone screen with recruiting. General skill and background questions 2) Phone screen and Q&A with potential peer in same position. I was interested in a "day in the life of" experience and daily tasks. 3) Another phone screen. Follow up with recruiting discuss job mechanics and benefits. 4) In person interview 1- Leads and execs. 4) in person interview 2- team members and client partners

    Interview Questions

    • They were very thoughtful and came armed with a prepared list of questions. The process was very organized and professional. Bonus points for everyone being on time. The folks at POP give a lot of thought as to who they hire and it shows. Favorite question: Describe a time i took a chance (professionally) and if I had regrets.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was easy for me. I had previously discussed what my needs would be if I was offered the job and they had a clear understanding of what that meant. When an offered was submitted, it was fair and comprehensive.
