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

    Pros

    I love coming to work everyday. The people, product and environment are awesome. OwnLocal is filled with a bunch of fun people that are committed to success and have fun doing it.

    Cons

    The company is growing and thereby changing. The leadership team has not done a great job communicating how the change is beneficial to the company yet...but they seem to be working on it. Personally, I like the change and new direction, but some of my peers don't.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the product and future of the company. It will pay off!

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OwnLocal.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional hiring process. Applied online and was emailed an assignment without even a phone screen. Completed the assignment and received an email a few days later to notify me that I wasn't a good fit for the role. I asked to provide specific feedback twice and was given this lame answer: "We don't provide individual feedback during our hiring process". Seriously? I had doubts applying in the first place after reading some reviews about the company. Please don't waste your time interviewing with this company.
