    I have been working at Reverb full-time


    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.


    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.

    Average Interview


    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Reverb in October 2017.


    After my first phone screening, we decided that the original position to which I had applied in Listings wasn't a good fit. HR stayed in touch, and later when a position became available on the Seller Engagement team, they reached back out to me. After briefly discussing the position, we set an appointment for an in-person interview with the team. I was asked specific questions about the sales process (my experience as well as hypotheticals), and I also had many questions for my interviewers that were all answered honestly and thoughtfully. After speaking with two members of leadership individually, we wrapped up the interview. Overall a pleasant experience that took about an hour. They got back to me with an offer before the end of the week which was also greatly appreciated.
