I have been working at Whitepages full-time (More than 10 years)
Whitepages is a small company with great benefits and good pay. Our management is exceedingly transparent with bi-weekly updates on all aspects of the business. Our employees are highly competent, hard working and fun to be around. Because we are such a small company, you will have the opportunity to grow your career in almost any direction you choose. And you will struggle to be bored because we have so much to do.
If you want to be a miniscule cog in a monstrous machine, Whitepages is not for you. You will have significant autonomy to do your job without bureaucratic overhead; So you will need self discipline and drive to succeed.
We have a lot to do and never enough time and people to do it. You will be busy working here.
Advice to Management
Always remember that our employees are our only true asset.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA) in August 2019.
I was referred by a current employee. Internal recruiter contacted me a couple days later to schedule initial screening.
She and I had an initial 30 minute phone call scheduled (it went for 45 minutes because of all my questions for her) . It was very back and forth making sure all of her questions about me were answered and that all my questions about the role and the company were answered as well.
The next day we exchanged emails to schedule the in person interview loop.
Since I would be a hiring manager of technical folks I interviewed with a mix of technical folks, Senior Management and product people. The interviews were conversational, detailed and thoughtful. Everyone I interacted with was excited about being a part of the company, explained the challenges in front of them and how this role would be key in solving those challenges. They asked good interview questions -- it was clear they weren't looking for a unicorn, but someone who could lead the people and the technology without coding it themselves or micromanaging.
With the technical folks I was asked how I would solve X problem ( from both a management plan, down to the technical infrastructure pieces and tools I would put in place for implementation and how that would be architected).
The interview loop was a little over 4 hours.
2 days later I was contacted via email to schedule a meeting with the internal recruiter so they could deliver the news that they were going to extend me an offer.
The next day after I was called by the hiring manager with the details of the offer.
