I have been working at Venmo (Less than a year)
The perks makes it all worth while. I mean, it's customer service, which in general is a pretty nerve wrecking job. However, I feel that they try their hardest to compensate for the constant complaints by having an open bar, game room, catered food literally everyday. Oh, did I fail to mention that you get to work from home with the MacBook pro they give to you?! As well as travel reimbursement. What job has those kind of perks? I'll wait....
None, really. Maybe not be on the phones as long as they have us on there...
I applied online. I interviewed at Venmo (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.
I applied online through the company's website and within a week I got an email to schedule a phone interview for that same week with a talent recruiter. The phone interview was very simple and easy questions about skills. She asked about metric tools, organizational skills (very important), as well as behavior based questions so actual situations and not generalizations. She explained the role and the company, she was a really sweet person and helped out a lot. That same day, I received a call notifying that they wanted to move forward with me and I had a interview scheduled for Friday of the following week. The interview was at their headquarters downtown and it started as a group where we received a brief presentation and overview of the company and job, then we broke intro groups and played a fun activity that the managers were apart of as well. After the activity half of the group went off into the individual interviews while the other half completed a wonderlic assessment and writing sample. Once the interview was over we were free to tour the facility and ask any questions that we had and the talent recruiter let us know that we would find out that same day if we were hired. It was a pretty fun and simple interview. I personally enjoyed myself and fell in love with the company from the moment I stepped into the office. I recommend that if you are scheduled for the phone interview, listen/take notes on everything that the recruiter tells you because they are so helpful throughout the entire process.
