    I worked at McMenamins full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Inspiring atmosphere, fabulous coworkers, promote work-life balance (though I didn't heed this while I was there - that's on me), family owned and run, upward mobility when I began there over 20 years ago.

    Cons

    McMenamins isn't for everyone, but as I told candidates during interviews - you'll know within six months or so if it's for you. When I was there, I didn't feel I was being paid my worth, however the benefits were good and the creative atmosphere was electric.

    Advice to Management

    If you find an employee of value, be sure to let them know.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at McMenamins (Hillsboro, OR) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Had a phone interview with an HR rep first which lasted around 15 mins. Was then scheduled for a second in person interview the following weekday. The in person interview lasted about 45 minutes and I was offered the position at the end of the interview.
