I worked at Rakuten full-time (More than 8 years)
Got free In-N-Out once a month
Career progression was limited
Turnover was high at all levels
After the Buy.com was purchased by Rakuten, there was a lack of direction and the energy of the company was lost.
Advice to Management
Should have focused on retaining talent
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rakuten (San Mateo, CA) in March 2017.
They looked over my resume and called me in. I wish there was more of an interview process or questions. I felt irritated as all of the time that I put into researching this company and finding ways that my background could work for this position was all for nothing.
