    I worked at Specialized Bicycle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The office is full of passionate people who love cycling and working hard. All levels of management are open to new ideas. Plus, expect really, REALLY good deals on cycling equipment.

    Cons

    Difficult to get in for an interview. You must know someone on the inside!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in new technology.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Applied in early March, email to coordinate phone interview 3 weeks later. No contact with HR, interview was with product manager. It was very professional with some typical questions: Tell me about yourself, what are difficulties communicating, how do you motivate people to accomplish something, along with cycling specific questions: what's your favorite ride, what's your favorite piece of equipment, what do you think the next big thing will be in cycling. Overall interview lasted half hour. According to the interviewer, multiple people were interviewing multiple people for multiple positions and they would sit down and discuss the candidates together.
