What people are saying about Automattic


a year ago


Product Designer

I'll soon be given a formal offer at Automattic as a junior to mid product designer. Prior to that I was making 76K annually as their contractor based in the Philippines. I get worried that they'll give me less than that because I'm based in the PH (salary estimators onIine show much less) Was adviced by a peer to ask for more and let them say no bec they don't do negotiations but try to match. I'm thinking of saying 85-90K and I'd be happy if it's less than that. Is that a fair amount? (Contd)

    1. HR Wrangler Interview

      Anonymous Employee in London, England
      No Offer
      Negative Experience
      Easy Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at Automattic (London, England) in Nov 2023


      It started with a Slack interview. Honestly I'm not sure it was a real person, or just a bot. When I asked my questions at the end I got non-answers, bullet point style. Very bot. Then a "skills test" that was ridiculous. Give 5 responses to 2 different scenarios. Super basic, again, zero personal interaction. It was the most dehumanizing experience. They need to realize that candidates are interviewing them as well. And NOTHING about the process gave me any insight into the culture, the people, or anything that would actually make me want to work at this company. Completely one sided and bizarre. Save yourself a few hours of time and apply to a real company that values humans, not bots.
