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

    Pros

    Small, family run, collaborative company where you have the opportunity to learn and do work outside your job description and work closely with upper management. Fun office environment that is dog friendly, has endless water and doesn't make you feel like you're in an office!

    Cons

    There can be a lack of structure but if you enjoy autonomy, being proactive and getting feedback you will succeed.

    Advice to Management

    My position allowed me to spend a lot of hands on time with the CEO, Kara, and learning from her first hand was really valuable. It would be great for others to have more of those opportunities as well! My time working with Kara on her marketing efforts for both hint and her brand was the highlight of my experience.

    Editorial Director Interview

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with an HR rep for the role of Hint's editorial director, a position for which I have plenty of qualifications and experience.

    On the phone, they said they were looking for a ghostwriter for CEO Kara Goldin and described duties (mostly writing blog posts on Kara's behalf) that weren't mentioned anywhere in their job listing. When I asked about the duties that were actually outlined in the job description, I realized they weren't really searching for a legitimate editorial director.

    Overall, I found the experience to be disingenuous and a waste of everyone's time.
