      I worked on the Enterprise Ad Ops team which serves as the implementation arm for the CSM and Sales team. We specialized in ensuring that all high volume enterprise client job distribution requests, job-board to ATS integrations and new account set ups were configured in a timely manner. ZipRecruiter is a very well scaled company and they are heavily invested in creating a modern job board that utilizes AI and advanced integrations into client talent management systems. ZipRecruiter has a strong culture, excellent new employee training program and excellent work-life balance. Their recruitment process really ensures that they hire employees that fit and strengthen an excellent, collaborative culture.


      Stability. ZipRecruiter is still a relatively new company and given that it is a job board, it is reliant on an economy where unemployment is down and hiring is up. If national unemployment increases ZipRecruiter's revenue is very impacted due to them historically not having an alternative product that has more inelastic demand in a bad economy. I do think that ZipRecruiter is heavily invested in the best future technologies that exist in the talent management market and due to this I think they may have a future where they have a more diverse product range that will perform better in a bad economy. However, as long as their products are primarily tied to job posting and talent attraction, stability will be an issue at ZipRecruiter.

        -Base pay is pretty high in comparison to similar roles. - Remote/hybrid schedule offered(however changes could be coming) -Health care benefits are good -Direct management involvement


        - lack of stability- company has been through a RIF in 2023 and the dust still hasn't settled with departments being removed completely and staffing issues. - Detached from company culture and lower morale - Stagnant career development for marginalized individuals and favoritism.(before and after the RIF) - Short staffed departments leading to heavy workloads causing staff burnout. -Internal tech issues that impact employees and customers. -Middle and Upper Management have become disconnected from the front-line employees. -Work-life balance

      I've completed an initial phone screening interview, followed by a 2-hour interview with the Department VP. Next in the process are three separate 90-minute peer interviews. Is there a possibility of another interview after the peer interviews, or should I anticipate receiving an offer?
