    I have been working at ModCloth full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The coworkers in the department are great, and the team understands that we occasionally need morale boosters. Hard work is recognized, and management listens to your concerns and works with you on anything. Good benefits, flexible PTO.

    Cons

    From the mass layoffs that happen (seemingly) every quarter, to the direction the CEO is pushing the company, it feels like a sinking ship. They do nothing to boost company morale, and just fall of their sword when things go wrong. Most employees lack total confidence in their job security. It's a total drag these days, and it just keeps getting worse with the decisions Kaness is making. Customers recognize it, employees recognize it, and it feels like there is no where else to turn.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ModCloth.

    Interview

    Applied to the position and then was contacted for a phone screen. After the phone screen I was invited to the property for a face-to-face interview.

    I was invited for a second face-to-face interview but was out of town at the time they wanted to schedule it. After saying I was out of town but giving them my next availability, I was met with a generic rejection template email that wasn't even entirely filled out.

    Overall pretty poor experience. I think the fact that they reject you if you aren't able to drop everything and run in (even if you're across the country on a vacation you told them you'd be on) says a lot about their work culture. I'd imagine this trend would carry through to work schedules with disregard to vacation. It's actually a bit humorous because they were obviously interested in me but opted to reject me because I was away. Oh well! I don't think I was hip enough to work there anyway!
