Mission: We help people lead creative lives!
I have been working at Cricut full-time (More than a year)
One of the best things about working at Cricut is that the atmosphere is one of passion for pleasing our customers and going above and beyond to help each other. I love working here (over a year now). Not many companies have a 'higher mission' but Cricut does, and it shows in the way we do what we do.
Communication can be an issue, and part of why it is lacking is because people aren't up front (don't say what they really want to say) or people refuse to follow processes that have been laid down to optimize our operations. This is a big deal when you work at the end of the pipeline because you're the one who ends up having to rush to get something deployed/sent off to customers on time.
Advice to Management
Be willing to tell people if they are under-performing (of course nicely, but be up front). Lay down strict guidelines for our processes and expect assets and peoples 'parts' of a project to be delivered in a timely and efficient manner. Cricut's culture is one of 'being nice,' but if you refuse to address issues (even if it hurts feelings), it only creates headaches for the team and people only say what they're thinking behind closed doors, which solves nothing.
I applied online. I interviewed at Cricut (Salt Lake City, UT) in March 2018.
Very, very disappointed in this process. Was very excited about this company and very familiar with their product. I applied for the role online and followed up via email. I got a reply right away to set up a phone interview via email. We confirmed the interview time and then I received no call. I followed up via email to see if we needed to reschedule and got a response the next day. We rescheduled for a new time and then again, I never received a call. I emailed again to follow up and got no response and then reached out again the following week and got no response still. If the position was filled or they didn't want to move forward that's completely fine but to schedule 2 interview times and miss the call both times with no explanation just seems extremely unprofessional and inconsiderate. I'm sure it's a great company but a recruiting process like that does not make a good impression.
