    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at ThredUP.

    Interview

    I interviewed in-person with two execs at thredUP. It seemed strange that for this role, the first two people I would meet are on the leadership team. Within the first few minutes, one of them told me the company went through a huge re-org just a few days ago (seems like a strange time to interview potential new team members).

    I asked about the company's new product vision and their goals. The exec couldn't answer.

    I was asked to critique the homepage of their website and redesign it on the spot. It was at this point I knew it wasn't a good fit. You shouldn't ask someone to redesign and critique your own product. It's not challenging, nor is it fair - knowing that you 100% have more familiarity with your own product; its conversion history, its flaws, and how it runs. There was no value in asking me to do this. It seemed like all that was wanted were free ideas. It was never intended for me to actually go through my portfolio or express and showcase my design thinking and capabilities. Nonetheless, I went on to critique the website.

    One of the execs got up and left the room 30 minutes early to attend another meeting.

    The other asked me to talk about my work experience more in-depth. Half way through speaking, he interrupted me to tell me I wasn't a good fit for the role and then asked me to leave. For some added context, I was 30 minutes into a scheduled 2-hour long interview. I was supposed to meet with a few other team members.

    I was slightly thrown off at the unprofessionalism of the interview process. But at the same time, completely relieved that it was over, and that I didn't actually have to start working here in order to realize that this is what leadership is like at thredUP.

    Long story short: I was left with the impression that this company is not design-driven, design-focused, or user-centric. And based on the rest of the reviews left on glassdoor, I'm also guessing I won't be receiving any sort of follow-up from recruiting. Cool!
