    I worked at Square full-time

    Pros

    On the outside, they show themselves to be very cool and professional.

    Cons

    I'm using this area to give advice to other prospective job seekers about Square. During the pre-Covid times in 2020, I had 2 rounds of phone interviews after which I was asked to come in for in person interviews. I drove almost 60 miles one way to head up to their SF office. The in person interviews went well as per the verbal feedback given by the interviewers and HR said they would reach out to me for the next steps. Couple of weeks go by and i don't hear anything back from Square team. I sent couple of follow up emails to their HR team but I never ever received even a single response back from anyone at Square. Very disappointed with the lack of professional conduct by their HR team. How much of a waste of time would it be for Squares HR team to write a simple email informing candidates that they are not proceeding with them? Isnt that a professional way of handling these things, instead of ghosting someone? Overall interview experience left a bad taste in my mind and I wouldn't ever want to work for them in the future for any role. Around that time, I found other opportunities and accepted an offer from a multi billion dollars revenue company, where I am very satisfied with my work, the team as well as the overall company work culture and the way they treat their employees.
