    I have been working at Reverb full-time

    Pros

    An incredibly encouraging and engaging place to work. Employees are given a lot of freedom in their duties and work across teams is delightful. There is a great deal of transparency and inclusivity among the supervisors. There is a lot of flexibility in all levels, there is not "corporate" red tape everywhere. The benefits and pay are also very fair and the potential for promotion or expanded responsibilities is always present. Reverb is also a very musical company, we practice what we preach. Employee's with band's or touring schedules will find flexible scheduling (within reason) and the company Christmas party gives everyone the chance to play on stage at Lincoln Hall, one of Chicago's premiere music venues.

    Cons

    There is an intensity at work that some people might find exhausting or beyond their pace. Reverb also encourages employees to be engaged and ambitious, if you lack in either category opportunities may pass you by.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the more freeform, improvisational tendencies of the early day's still remain and with it comes some miscommunication and crossed wires. It would help if everyone was more on the same page and all moving in the same direction.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Reverb.

    Interview

    Phone interview with the Senior Recruiter, of whom is very scripty with her responses. Completed an easy written assignment using Reverb.com site. In-person interview consisted of a lot of situation questions dealing with customers, how you stay organized, and testing your skill set like keystrokes. Tends to be a lot of work for a position that pays a low salary. Very hipster-vibe. If you show leadership skills and wanting to advance, they will likely not hire you. I wouldn't waste my time with this place.
