    I worked at WageWorks full-time (Less than a year)


    The people there are great to work with. The pay can be insanely good.


    Poor use of technology to develop software for the modern web. Way behind the times.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare yourself for some expensive years to come. You're not going to be able to compete with your existing front-end. It will have to be replaced - all of it - and it will be expensive.

    Human Resources Generalist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Mateo, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at WageWorks (San Mateo, CA) in October 2016.


    WageWork's Sr. Recruiter contacted me within 1 week after I submitted my resume on their career page. The duration of our initial dialogue was 30-45 minutes.

    Within a few days, I received a follow-up phone call from the Sr. Recruiter, informing me that I was selected to move on to the next phase of the selection process. The Sr. Recruiter requested I complete some additional online forms and from there, an in-person interview was scheduled with the VP, HR and HR Managers (Compensation, Benefits).

    The Sr. Recruiter was extremely personable and organized with her communication. I was scheduled to interview with each individual for 30 minutes and felt comfortable with each person I interviewed with; they all were candid and open to discussion about the details of the role and the organization.

    I reached out 2 weeks post interview for a position status update. I did not receive a response, so I reached out about 2 weeks after the initial attempt and received confirmation that the position had been filled.
