    I have been working at Dropbox full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You're treated as a person, not a number.

    As they say, Their core values are used as a compass, not a hammer.

    If you have a advanced skillset, you can apply it to an upcoming project, this place wants you to do what you can.

    There is always something cool happening in the office!
    The Tuckshop is literally Michelin star cooking

    James and Piotr in Dropstop.

    The Work culture, everyone is excited to step out of their comfort zone, everyone does their work and helps up lift anybody struggling, the environment is so uplifting.

    I could go on and on..best place I've work and eager to grow there.

    The perks are some of the best I have ever seen across any industy.

    Cons

    If I was to nitpick, Could use Dyson dryers in the bathrooms

    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dropbox (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I was reached out to by a recruiter. We had a chat about the role and my experience which then lead to the organisation of a phone interview. I had made sure to do a lot of prep on my past experience and on Dropbox itself so the phone interview went well and I was able to give relevant examples and answers to the questions, due to this I was successful in getting an onsite interview.

    The onsite interview was a great change of pace from the usual interview circuit. I was picked up at reception and given a tour of the Dublin office (beautiful btw) and shown to the room. The interview process then consisted of five interviews, 30 minutes each over 2 1/2 hours back to back.

    The interview process was intense as you are speaking for 2 1/2 hours straight but enjoyable as each interviewer asks questions about different aspects of your experience, the company and the role. A nice touch was that I was interviewed by people on the team that I would be directly working with. Everyone was very nice during the process and I felt it went quite well as I was able to build a rapport with many of the interviewers.

    After the onsite interviews I was reached out to the next week and extended an offer. Overall I had a very pleasant experience.
