    I worked at Thrillist Media Group as an intern (less than an year)


    Extremely smart developers who are constantly trying to learn and further their knowledge. The entire tech team is close and everyone knows each other. Consistent happy hours to lighten the mood and add to the fun environment.


    The staff is young, so the atmosphere reflects that. This can be considered bad, if you hate fun.

    Web Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Thrillist Media Group.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted about a position at Thrillist via an external recruiter.

    After about three weeks of waiting, they finally decided they wanted to phone screen me. The screen went so well that they invited me into the office to meet a few team members, but stressed that this wasn't the real first interview. The meeting went great, I got to talk to two senior members of their product and development teams.

    After the meet and greet ended, the more senior member I spoke to said "Yeah, lets get you in here for a coding test and a real first interview." The company's internal recruiter was on board with this.

    After a month and a half of emailing the external recruiter, today I found out that they are going with other people. The internal recruiter completely stopped responding to me, and never had the common decency to even tell me they were choosing to go with other people.

    I cannot rate this experience poor enough. Terrible communication, nobody knew what was going on. The two technical people I spoke to didn't even see my resume before they met me. It's hard not to take it personally when your last communication with them was "let's bring you in for an interview!" and then they just drop you like a rock and can't even be bothered to notify you that you won't be getting an interview, let alone an offer.
