I worked at RetailMeNot full-time (More than a year)
The people there are great! Fun to work with and really become your friends. The company itself really takes care of their employees with amazing perks! Breakfast and lunch, fully stocked snacks and drinks, barista on site, juice on tap, reimbursement for gym, cellphone and so more! It's one of the best companies i've ever worked for.
Because of the perks, pay is lower than industry standards. Not everyone at Retailmenot feels included in the long term plan of the company, and though we're free and welcomed to voice our opinions, certain changes can't be made so the moral can be low for certain teams, but they do a good job of transitioning you over to another team/department if you have interest in that.
Advice to Management
Make everyone feel like they are apart of the long term plan!
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (Austin, TX) in June 2017.
RetailMeNot employed a three phase interview process for this role, including recruiter phone screen, coffee with the hiring manager, and an onsite interview. Each step was clear and direct, with a clear description of the role and the requirements and expectations clearly stated.
The process took just over a week with an additional few days for the formal offer to be made.
After the offer was made, the background check and pre-onboarding was extensive and required significant research on my part to go back through records to support my job history. It's refreshing to see a company actually check references and job history!
