    I have been working at OfferUp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lot of very smart people around and very challenging problems to solve. Everyone I work with are open, honest and like to have fun. I am learning a lot.

    The new building is really awesome and cool.

    Cons

    The folks spreading negativity both within and outside the company need to leave and find happiness elsewhere, otherwise this is a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being open and sincere in the all hands yesterday. Please do provide an internal anonymous forum for few of the upset folks to vent out rather than having them go rogue in public.

    I very much want to work here, hope the the negative people affecting the company don’t screw it up for me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at OfferUp (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Bad communication.

    First phone screen with HR, could not answer any of my questions about the position but assured me “I fit the criteria.” Scheduled a follow up interview with the hiring manager for the following week. Recruiter emailed me 45 minutes before our meeting time to cancel with no explanation other than “the role description has changed.” I may have agreed with them if they had been clear about the position. Does not reflect well on professionalism of company.
