    I have been working at Blue Apron full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best places I've worked at. Nice size, smart and engaged employees. Management has done a good job at keeping morale decent during a transitional time period. Good work/life balance. Benefits are pretty good, especially if you would use the blue apron product. I think the glassdoor rating should be higher, but there has been a lot of transitions which makes some feel it wasn't what they wanted.

    Cons

    There's been a decent amount of turnover at times which can lower institutional knowledge and reduce morale.

    Advice to Management

    Serve the customer in the best way possible and results will come (which will probably solve the turnover issue a bit). Otherwise, I think the right steps are being taken.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Blue Apron (Dublin, CA).

    Interview

    I applied using my LinkedIn profile. About a week later, I received an email to schedule for a phone screening interview which went well and resulted to another phone interview with one of the General Managers.

    The 2nd phone interview also went well, he sounded like I was the one they are looking for and stated to expect to hear back from them to schedule an in person interview.

    1 week.. 2 weeks.. 3 weeks ..later nothing. I even reached out to the HR manager that did my phone screening and still did not get a response. I think that it would be really nice to get a follow up even though they didn’t pick you and not just leave you hanging.. it’s the right thing to do.
