    I worked at Seamless full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers within my immediate team were mostly exceptional, including my immedate boss and my boss' boss; great camaradere; helpful to each other; knowledgable and skilled; you can be as private & individual as you want to be or be a social butterfly, either way they respect it. Best bosses for me, very supportive and there's a lot of flexibility and independence, no micro-managing. Office is exceptional too; best location; bingo and table tennis always; free food. I still communicate with my coworkers and bosses even after we left the company, it's that great.

    Cons

    I can't say anything bad really. The company made an effort to be as transparent as possible when Seamless merged with Grubhub however, you can only reveal so much. Everything was great until it wasn't. Grubhub is a good company by itself it seems like but it's a different culture and I think the cultures didn't quite mesh well not a few times. The merge didn't affect me for the first 2 years or so. Politics exist as with most employers but you can choose to stay out of it.

    Advice to Management

    Maintaing good morale was no. 1 I understand when the merge happened but I wish people were more honest about what was happening with upper management during the merge. It was very confusing in some parts in the later years of the merge. Overall still I'm very thankful to Seamless!

    Software Development Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Seamless.

    Interview

    One phone screen which was just about getting to know my background and ask high level questions about the team which went well. The on-site interview was without exaggeration the worst interview of my adult life. The first interviewer with the head of Engineering was a good 15 mins late. The questions were about high level architecture. The second one, with a head of product management was around 40 mins late, though it went well with him asking me things about my product and informing me about his. The third interviewer asked me to whiteboard a problem and when I pointed out that there is no whiteboard in the room, he asked me to write on the wall. I told him the marker won't work and so he asked me to write on the table. It didn't work in either places so he asks me to write on a paper and there was no pad nor pen available in the room and he didn't act or move to get them. So I had to get one from my bag. The interviewer was rude, offensive and just plain did not smile nor showed any social skills or courtesy whatsoever. I had made up my mind about not wanting to work there by the time the last interviewer came. The last interviewer was pretty much the same - dove right into white boarding (data structures and architecture questions) without even introducing himself properly. Was the rudest of all four and was just plain offended when I would ask follow up questions about the problem he had posed and on occasion seemed to lose his composure. I was polite and cool and answered his questions. I left with a very bad vibe about the place and a poor impression of the quality of people there. Technically they might be great, but they lack basic human dignity, grace and courtesy and they seem disorganized and tardy.

    Interview Questions

    • Just being treated rudely - seemed more like a "stress interview"   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Bad vibe to the place. Rude interviewers with an overly serious demeanor and are borderline abusive who do not show common courtesy and lack basic social skills. Disorganized and tardy.
