    I have been working at Square full-time

    Pros

    Really easygoing culture, no micromanagement going on, which is the best part. Flexible hours, and flexible work-from-home culture. Great perks, including free food and snacks, commuter and gym benefits, regular gym classes in the office, etc.

    Cons

    A little unclear on how to advance in the company. No clear upward trajectory.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Square (San Francisco, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the hiring manager after my initial phone interview with one of their recruiters. This was by far the worst phone interview experience of my life. The hiring manager was late (no big deal), he was abrupt, he didn't let me finish answering his questions, and he was quite rude. What really striked me was his comment, and I quote: "I am sitting here scratching my head as to why you applied for this position", in the sense that I was overqualified and I didn't understand why I applied. I ended up not being called in for an in-person interview which probably is a blessing, since I don't know how anyone could work on a day-to-day basis which such a manager.
