    I have been working at ThredUP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a startup with a unique and rapidly changing business model where creative thinking is encouraged. I like being able to work with an eclectic mix of people with backgrounds in engineering, data analytics, consulting, e-commerce, and retail. Coworkers come from companies such as Google, Orbitz, Virgin Atlantic, and Netflix. I have encountered very interesting and fascinating business and technical problems that I have not experienced working anywhere else.

    Work from Home Wednesdays - Mostly for the software engineers and corporate employees. This does not apply to distribution center workers and some employees

    Free lunch Thursdays - definitely a perk. Catered food that has been great thus far.

    Laptop reimbursement - up to a fixed amount. Most people get MacBooks

    Good snack selection in the downtown SF office. Ok selection at the distribution center

    No vacation policy - accrue vacation days but can take vacation whenever you want. Days are not fixed. Awesome!

    Mentorship and training have been great so far. My manager is extremely accessible and knowledgeable. Overall everyone is very helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    Pay is not the greatest but we do get stock options for if and when the company goes public

    No 401k match presently.

    Work conditions can be challenging and stressful for distribution center employees who have quotas

    Can feel a bit lonely at times if you are not on the engineering team. I'm sure this will change as we grow and hire more people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    401k match! Better snack selection for DC office

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  San Leandro, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Leandro, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at ThredUP in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by email to come in for in-person interview. Came in and got an immediate tour of the place. They immediately then asked "Why are you a good fit" They then proceeded to do the background check right away. I received confirmation a few days offer with an offer of $9.00 hour.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    I had two quirks about this place. Firstly, I received two different offer emails with two different start dates which led me to believe the girl doing the interviewing doesn't have her stuff in order at all. She even offered the start date on a week day when I made it clear I could only work weekends. I felt like I was on some auto-responder for her. Not once did she CALL. Which comes to another point...Their numerous job ads posted had Sat/Sun as a shift offer. They are now closed on Sundays. I didn't find this out until I made the time to come to the in-person interview...I would of not even came to the interview had I known the ad was wrong. Also, the ad says $8-$15 hourly. I had retail background and warehouse experience but, they only offer $9 hour for everyone regardless with review after 30 days of work which for a weekend person could be 6 months or so. The job is listed as a temporary position of 3 months or so...With a chance to go full-time so it just didn't make much sense to work the 1 day a week for little pay. This could work for others of course...Seemed like an okay atmosphere but, if you're looking for a career you'll have better luck with a more known brand like Gymboree or something. The interview overall was okay and they seem to offer it to anyone with a pulse who doesn't want a real long-term career and can just do the same monotonous thing all day...Just know your job is on the chopping block 3 months or so after acceptance.
