I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Depop (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in August 2019.
tl;dr- friendly staff & would highly recommend interviewing here, but they should tidy up their professionalism & maybe hire a recruiting coordinator
Phases were a video call, a 9-question test, 3 one-to-one onsite interviews, and lastly a hiring evening. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming at each stage. You can tell people truly loved Depop. Most employees were buyers & sellers on the app before they became employees. The majority of the interview questions I was asked were easy and relevant to the job. I actually wish they would’ve grilled me a little more.
But I think everyone's friendliness/casual nature started to be too much it felt disrespectful once I hit the onsite stage. One of the interviewers gave me a hug when the interview was finished (so, did I get the job?). A different interviewer admitted to not having my resume on hand, but when I offered her a hard copy, she actually turned it down. Gee, thanks. The same manager went on to talk to my forehead the whole time instead of my eyes which was distracting.
I was asked “Where are you from originally?” which is a big no-no. I was also asked what my zodiac sign was. Sure it was just friendly conversation, but are you going to make a hiring decision off that?
The onsite was scheduled a couple weeks in advance, but the day of the interview, the location was still TBD since they don’t have an LA office. Ninety minutes before our meeting, the invite still said "Sunset Boulevard” instead of an address. Pretty stressful.
After 2 interviews at the Depop space, I had to meet a manager for a 3rd interview at the Intelligencia in Silverlake, so I walked 4 blocks from the Depop space at 3pm on an unforgiving 90 degree day. I hadn’t met this manager, so I had to pick her out from the crowd which was awkward, and I went up to the wrong person first. We sat outdoors in the shade, but it was way too hot. We also didn't order any coffee drinks, and she never offered to buy one for me.
The hiring event was fun but too casual. Two of the women weren't wearing bras, and another woman's dress was so short, I saw her underwear. There was pizza offered and one of the girls said “I’m going balls to the wall” and grabbed the first piece. So you get the picture of how the night went. It was a very young, homogenous, group of people. Exclusively female.
Among 15 or so people, I couldn’t tell you who else was an applicant for the manager role and who was an applicant for the agent role since no one wore name tags, which annoyed me. I felt like I was in a psychology experiment which I didn’t enjoy. If you hated group projects in school, you won’t like this. Everyone clamored for the chance to speak first, and since easy questions were asked, there wasn’t much to elaborate on by the time it got to be your turn unless you wanted to cut someone off and steamroll the other applicants.
