I have been working at Springbox full-time
Great culture, benefits and dogs
politics, weak leaders, not being evaluated
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Springbox (Austin, TX) in September 2015.
Springbox may have been voted one of the best places to work in Austin but interviewing there turned out to be an experience lacking in professionalism. I interviewed for a front end developers' position with two lead developers for around thirty minutes each. Both appeared to not have reviewed my application or resume and both seemed to be making up questions to ask me off the cuff. Although running past the allotted time, the interviews had a perfunctory feel, as if I was not being considered as a viable candidate. Despite being told that someone from Springbox would "definitely be in touch" I never heard back from anyone. After allowing ten days to pass I wrote an email to the HR rep that initially contacted me politely asking for an update on where the company was with the hiring process. I never received a response. It is a real shame that Springbox follows suit with many other companies that disrespect job candidates' time and the efforts we make to prepare for and attend job interviews. I took personal time off from my current job to make the meeting. I now wish I had saved that time to speak with professionals who care about the people that want to join their teams. If this is any indication of what it's really like working at Springbox then job candidates should look elsewhere.
