WeWork – Why Work For Us?


Who We Are

WeWork was founded by Adam Neumann and Miguel McKelvey in 2010 because they believed they could change the world by helping people work better together.

Headquartered in New York City, we operate globally in more than 30 cities and 12 countries. We’re a group of risk-taking, entrepreneurial spirits who believe deeply in collaboration. From the design and construction of our workspaces to the development of supportive technology to our onsite customer service, we take pride in everything that we do. Above all, we are members of the WeWork community, and we spend countless hours connecting with the people around us to better understand how we can build the absolute best place to work.

What is WeWork

WeWork is a workspace where companies grow together. Teams of any size can find beautifully designed conference rooms, coworking space, and private offices in more than 100 locations around the world. Beyond space, WeWork provides its members the community, services, events, and technology to support their big ideas.
 
 
 
 

YOUR SECOND HOME

Month-to-month commitments and flexible membership plans mean teams can get the space they need as they need it, whether booking a screening room once a quarter or setting up a satellite office in a new city. With one inclusive rate, members get not just inspiring space, but also furniture, cleaning, Internet, printing, and more.

A VIBRANT COMMUNITY

We create environments where individual pursuit and collaboration collide. These collisions happen at weekly networking events, happy hours, mentoring sessions, inside our mobile app, and through serendipitous encounters in our halls and lounges. Our community managers help facilitate these interactions each and every day.

THE PERKS OF MEMBERSHIP

As a member, you’ll enjoy a ton of perks from our flexible month-to-month membership plan to special deals on healthcare, payroll, hosting, legal services, travel, fitness, you name it. One of our primary goals is to help you achieve your goals and we work relentlessly to make this happen for you.



At WeWork, we’re united by a desire to create meaningful work and lead meaningful lives. Through employee and member events like Summer Camp and our annual Halloween Party, we work hard and play hard.

Join the team! 

WeWork is more than just a place to work. It’s a community, a movement, a shift toward a new way of working and living. We hope you’ll join us.

    I have been working at WeWork full-time

    Pros

    - You are empowered to make decisions and choose your own goals/tasks
    - Every day you meet so many amazing entrepreneurs as well as continuously build these relationships
    - Inspiring and fun meetings, all-hands & trips (Summer Camp & Summit)
    - Great support system! Everyone truly cares for your well-being and become family

    Cons

    - Needs 401k matching
    - Community Associates should get paid more
    - Community Associates may be a little too empowered that we sometimes perform at a Community Lead level but don't get compensated for it

    Advice to Management

    We need to reformat the CA role and provide higher pay, especially if the building is understaffed and the CA is performing like a CL. Each building should have 1 CM, 3 CLs (per each track), and 1 CA

    Construction Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at WeWork (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Video Conference intro, 3 In-Person interviews, Final round video conference. It took over a month for a recruiter to reach out about an interview after submitting my application. She then failed to follow through at the time she indicated every single round. I repeatedly had to reach out to the recruiter regarding status of the process and requesting more info like if there was going to be another round of interviews. I received an email at 8:30am on a Monday for an in person interview that day at 12:30pm without any other warning. None of the people I interviewed with had a sense of where I was in the interview process - for my final round interview, the employee was asking me basic questions thinking it was a first round interview when it was actually a 5th round. The whole process was a mess and it was clear that the hiring team was either overworked or under qualified (or both). The process was a huge turn off to the company because it is so clearly mis-managed. It took 5 weeks following my final round interview for the recruiter to finally notify me that they had opted to go with another candidate.
