    I worked at Mahalo.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The office space was great, and the employees were some of the best and brightest in the industry. The work benefits were really awesome too, along with free breakfasts on Fridays.

    Cons

    Last minute decisions affected schedules, extremely tight deadlines (but to be expected), and rather harsh treatment of employees despite putting in their full effort. The layoffs were brutal as well.

    Advice to Management

    A bit more time in advance for layoffs would have been appreciated, and allow the creators to pursue new ideas for the benefit of everyone

    Anonymous Employee in Culver City, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mahalo.com (Culver City, CA).

    Interview

    An older gentlemen named Elliot will just briefly talk to you about Mahalo, what they do and ask why you would fit the position.

    Interview Questions

    • They want to know if you'd be willing to work overtime, about 60 hours a week.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I refused the 60 hours a week and made a deal to work 40 hours at my base salary. I worked there for 7 months, and my supervisor basically lied to the CEO about our agreement, and I was forced to resign
