    I have been working at Wish full-time

    Pros

    - Agile company that innovates and moves quickly
    - Metrics based culture that values quantifiable deliverables
    - Highly skilled and motivated colleagues
    - Career growth based on ability and merit not politics

    Cons

    You will work hard, if you want to just put in your 9-5 and go to burning man this isn't the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the vision clear and if there is a pivot make it known.
    If heads are let go, be clear of the what and why.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wish.

    Interview

    HR reached out to me and has an initial phone screening. Based on what HR told me, this position is about building dashboard and data pipeline type of work. Then I got a online assessment with one sql and one python. I was pretty confident about my sql and python skills coz I have been using them for 4 years. The sql question is extremely easy using ion. To my SURPRISE, the python one is not about data manipulation or anything related to Data Analysis. It was some algorithm type of question. Not easy algorithms like sorting. I really want to ask what’s the point of testing complex algorithms for a typical data analysis role??????? If you are hiring for software engineer, totally understand. This is the stupidest interview I ever had....
