    Payments company Square has some quirky customs that CEO Jack Dorsey could bring to Twitter

    Twitter recently started sharing unedited notes from engineering meetings with the entire company, an unusual practice in transparency that it imported from digital-payments company Square. The note-sharing could be the first of many such cross-company cultural exchanges, given that Square CEO Jack Dorsey recently took on the additional job of serving as interim CEO at Twitter.

Square – Why Work For Us?

Square's Story

Square began with a simple idea: everyone should be able to accept credit cards. We've been rethinking buying and selling ever since. From a revolutionary card reader to a full point of sale with tools for every part of running a business, we’re helping local sellers take care of their business and connect with customers everywhere.

Health and Wellness

We offer a variety of health insurance options so you can choose a plan that best meets your lifestyle. You'll have access to a national network of doctors that provides comprehensive coverage when you need it most. While you’re onsite in San Francisco, take advantage of our wellness program to stay balanced and healthy. And come to work hungry—our nutrition programs add a little something special to daily life at Square.

Taking Time Off

At Square, we have an unlimited vacation policy that allows you to get the rest and relaxation you need to refresh. If you’re welcoming a little one, our paid maternal and paternal leave offers four months of leave at full pay.

Money Wise

We offer a competitive equity package to full-time employees to share ownership and achievement in the company. And we provide a healthy dose of financial education on equity and retirement planning so you can manage your money on your terms.

Learning and Development

At Square, you can customize your career trajectory through our development programs. Our orientation program, Square One, will set you up for success in your new job. Our company-wide quarterly Hack Week is an unstructured week to build something you believe should exist in the world. Additionally, each Square has the option to participate in a variety of peer-to-peer learning opportunities, such as watercolor, iOS, and music classes.

Employee Experience

Life at Square wouldn’t be the same without movie nights, Square Games, our annual Holiday Party, and Bring Your Kids to Work Day. These are a few ways that we like to celebrate and bond over common interests.

    Pros

    Square has been a great place to work for the past few years. It's provided me the opportunity to grow in my career and learn new skills, while simultaneously witnessing a rapidly growing company adjust on the fly to new challenges. Working at a company that grows and changes so rapidly has been one of the best ways to learn quickly. The amount of experiences that I feel like I've faced in the few years I've been here seems much higher than my peers at slower moving companies. I think this can only benefit me. There are a lot of great people here to work with and learn from. I have real friends here, not just co-workers. Leadership has become much stronger on account of some key hires.

    Cons

    Growing pains come with the territory when you move quickly in an industry that is constantly changing. We are going up against behemoths that have deeper pockets and more resources than us. In my opinion, that makes it a bit more fun, but it does make for some thrash as the priorities evolve and shift with the changes in the environment.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain transparency.

    Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Square (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Internal recruiter reaches out for a short phone screen. He was about 10 minutes late. Mentioned that he is really busy and has back to back calls. (Makes me feel really valued) The call didn't seem to have a purpose other then informing me the recruiting process and ask why I was looking. I was invited to headquarters for a short 2 person interview. When receiving the email confirmation there is no schedule for who you will be meeting with. The schedule said it will be 1 hour and 15 minutes and if that goes well then another interview. When I arrived I ended up with a 3 hour interview with over 4 people. The coordinator picks you up from the lobby and gives a short tour and water. Very modern and high tech looking office with lots of space. The team is very nice and seem like a good bunch of people to work with. Most have been there 3+ years. Since they have a small group it appears they are looking for someone who fits their culture to a T. Not a lot of hustle and bustle going on in the office. At the end of the 1:1 interviews the internal recruiter picks you up and walks you out. When meeting with me he said he collected the feedback from most of the team already. I asked him if he could share it or if they would provide direct feedback to help me in future interviews. He responded they usually don't do that. (why tell me you got feedback already then?) All in all an ok interview process. They could have done a better job preparing candidates and screening upfront then wasting time bringing people in for short interviews.
