    I have been working at Overstock.com full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people, the tech, and the vision.

    The people are some of the most talented in the industry. They are smart, hard working, and collaborative. This is true of the IC’s all the way up to Patrick.

    The tech stack is a dream come true for any Developer, Analyst, or Engineer. At most companies, the backend/pipeline is the limitation. At Overstock, any idea can be implemented because of the foundation that has been built over the last 20 years.

    Patrick’s vision is what has, and will soon again, make Overstock.com the most profitable pure play retailer on the internet.

    Cons

    There have been bumps in the road and distractions from the vision over the years, but they don’t ever last long. The company recently went through one of the bigger distractions in its history, but has course corrected.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to listen to the people you have put in positions of trust.

    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Overstock.com (Salt Lake City, UT) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It was very professional but casual. I was in a large conference room and met with 3-4 different people during the process. I then met with the VP of people care and was able to ask him the direction of the company and how I could help fulfill that vision.
