    Pros

    There are some decent people who work here, you can take as much time off (unpaid)

    Cons

    They pay their engineers and office employees way too much, and they get all the perks while the DC employees do all the hard work. Unfair treatment of employees, no room for growth. They will hire anyone... And I mean anyone!

    Advice to Management

    pay more attention to who you hire an invest in the good ones with potential, be better at weeding out the troublemakers.

    Pros

    the pay is okay, if you dont mind having to deal with the stuck up employees your always bumping into when your walking miles daily to pick or rack clothing in this huge warehouse on a restricted time limit. Im quitting today so obviously i mind.

    Cons

    employees gossip about each other daily, some are very rude, they all have there own little "clicks" which seems like a very unprofessional environment to me. the supervisors are walking around chilling in one area, while the staff is trying to run around them to meet the unrealistic time goals the company has. if i could go back in time i would have never said yes to the job.

    Advice to Management

    treat your employees better, and stop the favoritism. if you dont have enough people then stop standing around and go help the other employees do something. this start up will never go farther if you dont have a dedicated work force of loyal employees which this company lacks..

    Pros

    Great co-workers to work with. I liked that the people were positive and there seemed to be a great vibe.

    Cons

    Not very much training. I was trained to pick for 2 days and then expected to meet they're extreme goals which wouldn't happen within the small amount of time I started working there. When I was not able to meet they're expectations I was treated differently. They don't seem to care about the employees and how the employees might be suffering physically when trying to meet a 50min goal with 100 items.

    Advice to Management

    Change your system its not working and your treating your employees like crap!! They are worth more then just numbers. Some of them are suffering physically because of your crazy time limit on picking orders. I hope your company does change because at this rate you will never have a committed force of employees who want to stay and work under these unacceptable conditions.

    Pros

    The people are friendly, the benefits are cool, company lunches, cool discounts on the site. Overall its a fun enviornment

    Cons

    Very number oriented, it seems hard to be able to advance in the company but its doable, sometimes it seems very high school because of the workers

    Advice to Management

    Each worker (outbound, inbound, office, etc) should be sort trained. After they've learned the racks (picking/racking) they should be sort trained in order to end all confusion about Q2 standards

    Pros

    I love the 30 percent discount on the clothes I buy at Thredup

    Cons

    Staff is all over the place, in everyone's business. They spread hurtful rumors along with Management. It's a start up all right. We have a lot of missing items, the customer just don't know it. Staff is either stealing or miss handling the items, because daily I have to tell a customer that the item they want is unavailable, when it's really missing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop using your staff to do your bidding. Manage your staff yourself, so employees wont have to snitch just because they don't like that person or is jealous. Your staff will snitch over being jealous, but not if a unsafe situation arise. Where do you think the word POSTAL came from?

    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 Management

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