    I have been working at The Chemistry Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast learning. Fast responsibility. Encouraged learning. You can talk to anyone. You're given very clear feedback on where you need to be, and how you can get there. Everyone wants to help you get there. It is difficult to get there. Never been in an environment where people enjoy working as hard. Fun. Inspiring. You lead your own direction.

    Cons

    If you don't like working late, or hours eating into yours, it may not be for you. It doesn't happen to me often, but it does every now and again; and i often think about work at home. I don't mind that, and in fact think it's important to remain sane (I don't buy the idea of trying to get away from work, why would you work there if you don't enjoy it?).

    Advice to Management

    Focus on solid process as we expand, to ensure the culture remains as productive.

    Office Manager Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Chemistry Group.

    Interview

    I applied through Workable via their website after doing some research about what the company does. I was really enthusiastic about their product and their company ethos so spent quite a long time writing a cover letter as well as providing an extensive and thoughtful answer to the question 'Why do you want to work for Chemistry?'

    I sent all this through at midnight on a Saturday and by Sunday afternoon, had an email thanking me for my application and sending through an online Culture Fit assessment link. I was of two minds about this - was it a bad sign that someone in HR was working on a Sunday afternoon? But as I was keen, I looked at it as 'at least I don't have to wait until Monday to hear'. I completed the online assessment which didn't take too long and it posed some interesting work/colleague scenarios. You receive a report immediately giving you the results which I enjoyed reading and found interesting. I also felt that the report results did accurately reflect my personality (I came out very high on flexibility, transparency and curiosity).

    I received a generic email Monday morning saying: "After reviewing your application, we don’t feel we have the right opportunity for you in the business at the moment." While grateful that the process only took a few days, it struck me that the response wasn't reflective of the role that I had applied for (I had applied for a specific job they posted and the reply didn't fit). I came away thinking that they are taking a sort of 'fast food' approach to hiring and in hindsight, I can see that it is not the company for me.

    What's it like to apply to Chemistry!? - Chemistry Group

    At Chemistry a phrase you will often hear is 'We drink our own champagne". This doesn't mean that we like to crack open champagne in the office on a Tuesday afternoon; instead it's something that runs through the core of everyday working at Chemistry.
