    I have been working at JOOR full-time

    Pros

    - I have learnt more in my first few months at JOOR than in any previous role. The company encourages you to hit the ground running. It's challenging but full of opportunities to learn from your mistakes and grow. - I really value how active and connected upper management are within the company and find this incredibly motivating. - Working with the amazing brands on JOOR and directly seeing how the platform can make a difference to their workflow is hugely rewarding.

    Cons

    - Whilst long hours are necessary within the industry, it would be really good to see more importance placed on productivity and encourage a more strategic working culture that helps employees best serve the company by 'doing more in less time'. - In turn, it would be great to see more of the head office activities such as talks and workshops rolled out to outer offices.

    JOOR Response

    November 9, 2016CEO

    Thanks so much for the feedback. JOOR has been built on the mindset of working smarter vs. working harder. The core team at JOOR has accomplished so much in a short period of time with this mindset in mind. As a management team, we are working hard to ensure all people across all levels leverage this core value so that we can move even faster than before. That's why we've increased the number of employee training sessions and working to ensure everyone on the team gets formal and informal feedback several times during the year. In those sessions, managers are strongly encouraged to provide tips and tricks on how to increase velocity and improve efficiency. If you aren't getting that then please ask your manager for this. You are thinking about things in a strategic way!

    Pros

    People are great, hardworking and supportive

    Toxic environment - be ready to give up on your work/life balance. Many people left because of poor management and lack of career growth perspectives.

    I have been working at JOOR full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been challenged and have learned so much that I feel it's significantly helping my career development. I love a fast-paced environment, while I understand others may not. Lastly, the culture. We've been working remotely as a company since March. This hasn't been the easiest adjustment, but I have to commend JOOR. Through this time our Slack is always engaging, there are so many virtual hangouts: happy hours, cooking classes, trivia, scavenger hunts. The company culture was always my favorite aspect to working here, but I'm lucky and grateful it's translated virtually as well.

    Cons

    Before pandemic I would say office space was a huge thing. Just having more space and conference rooms as the company continued to grow.

    I worked at JOOR full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The sales team has excellent leadership and the managers are there to help you succeed. JOOR is leading the way in the wholesale revolution towards a truly digitized marketplace for brands and retailers. The entire organization is very supportive and you can lean on your colleagues to help close deals.

    Cons

    The team is quickly outgrowing the office space and a more modern location would be great especially to host prospects.
