    Pros

    An absolutely amazing place to work.

    From the moment I received my initial phone interview, to getting the job, to day-to-day work life - everyone has been super friendly and great to work with.
    The interview process was well managed and "indogtion" was an excellent idea to make new employees feel welcome. Lots of thoughtful gestures and team events throughout the year.
    There are plenty of dogs in the office to pet, so when you're having a bad day you can destress.

    Senior management is approachable and down to earth, giving great insight to the business and our future goals. Tails.com has a culture where you feel supported and pushed to be your absolute best. You really feel that everyone is giving it their all to reach the goal of changing the world of pet food for good.

    Cons

    Longer working hours than your usual 9-5.
    As mentioned in the previous review, if you want a relax and chill, this is not the place for you.
    There could be more diversity in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and don't forget those that have been loyal to the business.

    Customer Support Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Richmond, London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tails.com (Richmond, London, England) in November 2016.

    Interview

    After sending in my cover letter and CV, I was asked to attend a phone interview the following week. Immediately after my phone interview, I was asked to attend an interview in the office the following week. The interview was a relaxed chat about myself and interests. There was also a short written test. After my in-person interview (on the same day), I was called and asked to attend a second interview with the senior management the following day. This lasted about 2 hours and was more formal than my previous interview. However, it was very friendly and after already having two previous interviews, I felt quite relaxed (which is unusual for me). After my third interview, I was offered a position on the same day and began work two weeks later.

    My only concern through the process was the length of time it took for me to get through the interview process.
