    I worked at Mercadolibre full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, quickly-growing company where you can take on a lot of responsibility

    Cons

    Payment in local currency is useful if you plan to stay in that country but not if you want to live elsewhere

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but don't be too political with promotions of top talent. Reward people with the roles they deserve, regardless of age or tenure.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Mercadolibre (Buenos Aires (Argentina)).

    Interview

    Looked from a global perspective the process was great (different stages, different hierarchy interviewing, assessing a variety of qualifications each).
    From a company perspective they were really direct towards the type of candidate they wanted for the role. Overall everybody seemed to be cohesive with the expectations.

    The reason why I think this process was horrible was because my experience with the crappy staffing agency you meet at the beggining. All they did was coming up with what it appeared to be "disrupting" recruiting, asking random questions completely out of the bllue (like, do you have boyfriend?)- They were really concerned about dig in on my current professional network rather than assesing my capabilities in depth. Lack of professionalism - psycholgist-aspirational little spoiled girls.

    Interview Questions

    • no difficult questions, way too much focus on narrating how difficult the role was to be.   Answer Question
