    I have been working at Venmo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free Food
    Money is is not just good. Money is great!!
    There are some decent people.
    Work-Life balance is amazing because there is no expectation to actually work.

    Cons

    It's horrible. Nobody is being held accountable. YOu can do whatever You want, no consequences. Don't like to built a quality product? no problem. Don't care about the product? No problem. LITERALLY don't show up for work for 3 days a week? No problem.

    Carefuly that you don't cross anyone. Show initiative? Big problem. Offer better options? Bigger problem. Want a career and build good products? Don't come here, it WILL ruin you.

    Advice to Management

    I joined two years ago. It's been getting worse and worse and worse. Give your shareholders their money back and close shop.

    Customer Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Venmo (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    After sending in my resume, I received an initial call a few days prior to Thanksgiving. I had missed the call and the person leaving the voice mail mentioned they would be out of the office the next few days for the holiday and would call back the following Monday if they did not hear from me. I tried calling back but was met with an answering machine so I left a voice mail agreeing Monday would work for me. I heard nothing until the following Wednesday, which I assumed was due to catching up with post holiday work. Again, this employee called me at a bad time and I had to try to call back, again being met with an answering machine. I left a voice mail advising what days/times I would be available to take a call.

    Two days later I get a call after the time I specified would work for me but I made myself available so we could stop playing phone tag. The employee told me they were calling because they wanted to set up a time so we could talk details of the position and the. schedule an initial interview. It took 2 weeks to not set up an interview as I expected but to set up a time to talk about setting up an interview. Wanting to be flexible I agreed and we set up a time. After the pre-interview we finally scheduled an initial interview. At this point, it had been 3 weeks since this entire process began.

    On the day of my interview I get a call an hour before my scheduled time from the interviewer asking we reschedule my interview, giving no explanation as to why. Again, trying to be agreeable, I say yes and we schedule my interview for the next week. The day of my interview comes and the initial employee who called me reaches out telling me we have to reschedule AGAIN because the interviewer had the stomach flu. Obviously this is something that can be controlled so once again I agree to a new day. Three days later I get a voicemail saying my interview has been cancelled because they filled all of their spots. They graciously offered to move my information into the next pool for potential candidates for their spring training.

    This entire ordeal of run arounds and bureaucracy took four weeks just for them to tell me they wont interview me after all. Initially I was understanding as holidays throw a kink into regular work days but other companies I have spoken with were efficient and organized using email to set up interviews and avoided the headache of week longs phone tag. After such a drawn out and frustrating process I fee like I dodged a bullet with Venmo. No desperation could make me work for a company this disorganized and unprofessional.

    Interview Questions
