Mission: We create thriving local economies by bringing businesses and their customers closer together, helping them discover community.
I worked at Main Street Hub full-time (Less than a year)
The culture and general vibe here was great. Their values can seem a little culty to newcomers, but once you're there you realize that management is just pumped to be running a good and socially conscious company, and they want to keep it that way. People are friendly and outgoing, the dress code is casual, the snacks are great, and they have an in-house barista and espresso bar – I was spoiled with my first job.
The workload can be intense at times, depending on your position, but this was starting to improve as I left, so it might be better now. Compensation wasn't great either, but there are a lot of perks, and it's certainly an adequate wage to live comfortably and enjoy life in Austin, Tx.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing, but be mindful of the opinions of the masses. Unpopular decisions garner a lot of gossip and whispering, and discontent spreads like wildfire. People eventually adapt, but I remember big changes having a worrisome effect on the teams.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Main Street Hub (Austin, TX) in April 2015.
It's a kinda long process: you have to do a test and an assignment and you're interviewed by multiple people. Everyone is really nice, though, and they communicate next steps well.
