    I have been working at Via Transportation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Via is hands down an awesome place to work. We're tackling a massive business opportunity and going after the entire public mobility market (this tech and business is way beyond Uber/Lyft). This provides exciting challenges to test my intellectual curiosity. Via focuses on hiring exceptionally smart people who are also down to earth and enjoy working collaboratively. I haven't seen such a diverse talented group of people in any other company. I love coming to work every day because I know I'll engage with awesome folks who are always open to helping out and solving a problem together. Via gives people tons of autonomy and trusts them to just get things done. If you're a self-starter who loves to come up with an idea, execute, and own the result start to finish this place is for you. Via is also a true meritocracy - top performers who excel on all fronts are quickly rewarded (more responsibility, larger teams, and financially).

    Cons

    This is a highly competitive market and Via has several well funded competitors. While I think our tech and business model are years beyond Uber/Lyft we need to grow our brand awareness - don't be surprised if many people you talk to have yet to hear of Via. It's a great opportunity to spread the word! The company is growing extremely fast so make sure you're ready for a less structured environment where you need to build relationships and work collaboratively to drive results.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Via Transportation (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I first applied for this job over Thanksgiving weekend and I just received my rejection e-mail today—in February, a day shy of 2 weeks after my in-person interview.

    I was first contacted mid-December about setting up a phone interview, which happened a few days later. The person I spoke to was pleasant and seemed passionate about the company and the direction it was heading. After a lengthy chat, I received an e-mail with instructions for a writing test, due a few days later, which I completed in a timely fashion.

    After 2 weeks of silence, I sent a follow-up e-mail and a date was set for an interview at their office, yet another 2.5 weeks away.

    Finally, I sat for a 2-hour interview with 3 different employees (one at a time), fielding the same general questions each time. I was then told that everybody on the team liked me and that I would hear from them after the weekend about next steps.

    I sent a thank you e-mail a few days later, but was met with more radio silence until earlier this afternoon, when I received a slightly-customized rejection letter explaining that my skills didn't fit their current needs. Considering I was told that they had hired a current college senior for the same job, this rang a bit hollow.

    All in all, I'm disappointed with how long it took to get to this point. All of this could have been expedited without needlessly jerking me around for over 2 months. I get that they're a startup and probably are still figuring all of this out, but this felt a tad less than professional.
