    I have been working at Wish full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wish really takes care of you. There are so many opportunities within the company to expand and grow. Really, if you are interested in a new project to get inspired, Wish literally offers help with that (even anonymous orientation if that is more comfortable before making the actual shift). There is free food everywhere at all times of the day, super fun events and interesting lunch time work shops. Amazing office in SF HQ with the most stunning views and lots of light coming in everywhere. It is just very comfortable and fun to be there. Colleagues are so fun and we do team outings all the time. Pay is excellent. Lots of benefits (amazing health care, fitness reimbursement). Just a big YES all around. Best job I've ever landed.

    Cons

    Pretty challenging to get through interview process. They expect a high standard of overall human being so you've got to bring your A-game.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wish (San Francisco, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I responded to a CraigsList post and received an email shortly after. Phone interview was quick, in-person interview was also really pleasant. Great communication and everything in a timely manner.
