    I have been working at ThredUP full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    work-life balance, flat hierarchy, as much responsibility as you want. Everyone works hard so there is no need for face time - everyone has skin in the game.

    Cons

    startups are inherently frenetic and constantly changing. It takes a while to get your bearing, and sometimes the lack of steering can be frustrating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring the best fit. Passion for this business goes such a long way.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ThredUP in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The first step was a 15-minute phone interview where I was encouraged to ask questions about the company and position, but my work history and skills were never discussed (it was also worryingly mentioned that the standard employee workday is 11 hours). Next, I was offered an unpaid test project and was shocked at the scope of it—three original illustrated t-shirt designs and an email blast. In my experience, unpaid tests can usually be completed in 1-3 hours, whereas more in-depth assignments are treated as freelance and paid. I asked how long I was expected to spend on the assignment as was met with the dubious, "We don't know because everyone works at different paces." Projected timelines are a normal part of any project as they directly relate to how much the project ultimately costs, not to mention individual design speeds are a non-factor in knowing how much time certain types of work should generally require. Despite this major red flag, I spent 25 hours on the assignment and was then invited for an in-person interview. I mentioned being an out-of-state candidate, which was discussed before and during my first interview, and was then told the position was actually open to local candidates only.

    Overall unprofessional at every step of the process. Even if offered the position, I would have serious concerns about the company's management and expectations.
