I worked at Mahalo.com full-time (More than a year)
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.
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
I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mahalo.com (Culver City, CA).
An older gentlemen named Elliot will just briefly talk to you about Mahalo, what they do and ask why you would fit the position.
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
