I have been working at Volusion full-time (Less than a year)
Management solicits feedback and actually takes it into consideration. It is possible to make an impact right away in your role here. The company is trying to be as open and transparent as possible with its employees, e.g., monthly town hall meetings and weekly (optional) anonymous feedback emails that they actually read and take into consideration when enacting changes.
Career opportunities-many people have moved up and laterally within the company. You don't have to worry about being stuck with no mobility or career growth.
Great perks--snacks, drinks, onsite yoga (in the onsite gym), bring your dog to work Fridays, and various events like self defense classes, woodworking shop classes, etc.
You can tell the company still has some ripple effects from the changes last year. Admittedly, I joined after the big changes took place, but I can see how it has a lasting effect. I would say this is common with any company that goes through a big change, and the main thing is how the company chooses to address it.
Advice to Management
Continue to be humble in knowing that there are still strides to be made toward bettering the company, continue soliciting feedback from employees and listening to them, be open in hiring someone who fits the culture code and has potential, even if they are not quite a "unicorn" (yet!).
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Volusion (Austin, TX) in August 2016.
I got a reply of interest from a recruiter who asked for a 30 minute phone call. After speaking on the phone, I was asked to redesign one of four (major) pages of the Volusion website. I was given a 5 business day time span to do this in. After submitting my redesign, I had the recruiter leave me a message saying that they would be moving forward with other candidates. I never even spoke with an art or creative director, or anyone from the creative department for that matter, while wasting upwards of 30-40 hours of my time. I noticed recently that this listing is back on indeed only months later (lol), so I wanted to share my story. It makes me curious how often they ask people redesign their pages while telling them it's an interview.
