Employees rate Munich 3.7% higher than the overall average
I have been working at FlixBus full-time (Less than a year)
I have so far been impressed with the level of smarts at this company. I see lots of very intelligent, young, and fun people who are passionate about what they do and excited to drive change. It doesn't feel like a place where many are just punching the clock.
The company infrastructure and processes in place are impressive (better than I expected from such a young company) and help to make sure that the day-to-day runs smoothly and employees have what they need to be efficient.
Company has grown so fast the office is bursting at the seams, but hopefully a short term issue with bigger office planned soon.
Pay is not the greatest, definitely on the low end of the spectrum for the level of responsibility and workload, but they do try to compensate with other perks (like free bus/train rides).
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at FlixBus (Munich, Bayern (Germany)).
I submitted my application and around 1.5 weeks later HR told me they wanted to schedule an interview with someone from the business (future colleague). Interview went great; it was a lovely conversation that lasted almost 2 hours. It required quite some preparation and logical thinking, but nothing crazy. Then the drama started... they tell you they contact you within 4 days. After 8 days of silence I decided to contact them myself as I had multiple offers coming my way (which I mentioned). Fairly quickly I got a reply the feedback was very positive and that I got a second interview, which also went pretty well. Two weeks went by and still no reply... I decided not to even bother following up and to take another job offer instead. If a candidate tells you they have multiple offers coming up AND you believe this candidate would be a good fit, then common logic would be that you don't fool around. Very disappointing experience. My tip: if you want to get out of a catch-22 (lack of people due to lack of people in HR), fix the bottleneck first - HR.
