Mission: To be the most-visited global network that shares definitive life stories, celebrates meaningful moments, and allows users to pay their respects to the deceased.
I worked at Legacy.com full-time (More than a year)
* The People
Working at Legacy, you'll spend your days with folks who are passionate, thoughtful – always pursuing excellence. The camaraderie between colleagues and the passion/involvement of key executives (CEO, CMO), made for a work environment that was often stimulating, supportive, and innovative.
* The Subject Matter
Legacy is a key player in the world of obituaries and grief support. Make no mistake, it can be challenging to work with such emotionally charged content. But it's also a gift; the work you do can have real meaning and impact. Ideas have incredible potential in this context. You'll never be bored.
* The Opportunity
As previously mentioned, key members of Legacy's executive team are extremely passionate and invested in the company's mission/potential. As an employee, this was inspiring – and thanks to the environment of innovation and scrappy growth, it was possible to parlay personal inspiration into personal career development.
Legacy occupies a vast digital space with a relatively small team, and as a result, it sometimes felt like there was more work than the team could handle. It could be frustrating to have numerous projects/ideas on the backburner without bandwidth to support them. This may have changed, however, as the company was adapting to a period of quick growth during my time there.
I applied online. I interviewed at Legacy.com (Naperville, IL).
Received a phone call from HR one day after applying. This was a typical HR screen. The screen concluded with me having a phone interview with the hiring manager the following day. I noticed the hiring manager called from a "private number", which is a flag and shows you how they may think of their candidates. Legitimate companies call with an identifiable number from the office line. Hiring managers should want to communicate with candidates, not show early signs of "one-way communications".
The phone interview with the hiring manager involved very basic technical questions that would easily be answered by a single course in HTML. After this, HR called same day for an in-person interview.
They gave only 48 hours notice and absolutely refused to reschedule, which is another flag. Were they desperate to fill the position or simply unable to respect their candidate's time?
After the in-person interview, the hiring manager looked me straight in my eye and told me they would "contact me". I did not ask for this information. They told me a direct lie that was not necessary.
Afterwards, HR completely ignored my questions.
No one should have to take this bad treatment.
They have demonstrated a lack of integrity, a lack of trust, a lack of respect, and unprofessionalism in the treatment of their candidates.
I do not recommend this company.
