    I worked at Warby Parker part-time

    Pros

    Clearly defined culture and core values and extensive training program. All employees give off a great vibe. Good pay, small benefits and perks to even part time employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes the stores are overstaffed so as an advisor you feel under-utilized

    Assistant Merchandise Planner Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Warby Parker (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted about two weeks later to take a one way video interview. The questions were very easy and the next day was contacted to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager.
    The phone interview with the hiring manager was really short as she only asked three pretty basic questions. "Do you have planning, allocations and inventories already set up, or do you do most of your work in excel?" "Walk me through your resume/how you got to the position you're in now" and I can't remember the last question, but it wasn't very hard.
    I thought we had a good back and forth, and was very surprised to receive an email from a no reply address at 4pm on Saturday (the interview was on Thursday).
