    I worked at Goby full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My favorite part about Goby is the people. Everyone is friendly, smart, and cares about making the world a better place. It often feels like a family. It can feel very entrepreneurial at times which can be fun and challenging. If you have a can-do and step up to the plate attitude, you will grow. I also really enjoyed working in sustainability/ESG. Also learned a ton about real estate. Good benefits and good culture activities/perks. Central downtown, easy commute. Relaxed environment.

    Cons

    -I think a bit more structured training and development would help employees and the company. Senior employees have valuable experience that younger employees (and the company as a result) would benefit from.
    -Processes or technologies changed a bit too often. Expected in a start-up but sometimes worth making continual improvements on existing to keep the flow going.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goby (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Had a phone interview, and then a second round in-person interview. Everyone seemed very friendly and intelligent. Engaging interview with interesting questions, conversation. I thought it went well. I was genuinely excited about the opportunity.

    I was told that I would hear from them the following week...although over the next few weeks they never contacted me. I followed up by emailing several people who I had met during the interview process (who had given me their cards/contact information).

    No responses until 2 months later, I received an automated notification that the position was given to someone else.
