    Pros

    - Many of the colleagues are very friendly
    - eBay-backing means nice technology, parties and paid Friday lunches.

    Cons

    Where to start?
    - Surprisingly cruel management if you're an AWF (Alternative WorkForce, AKA contract worker) --> This represents the majority of workers in the office. FTEs receive compassionate treatment and benefits, however many AWFs are treated disgracefully, and are not able to participate in work events.
    - Management obscures the fact that you will not be a full Kijiji/eBay employee until after you have been hired.
    - If you happen to get sick and are an AWF, start looking elsewhere as management may try to fire you for taking sick days.
    - Approximately zero career opportunities if you are an AWF (contract-worker in perpetuity).

    Advice to Management

    - Stop hiring AWFs to save a few corporate tax dollars.
    - Convert existing "AWFs" who regularly work in the office to employees. You are likely engaging in illegal co-employment.

    Agile Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kijiji (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    HR screening and phone interview are normal. On-site interview is a horror: it takes 5hours of 5 different people asking you the same standard set of questions. HR "forgot" to tell me they moved the interview 1 hour later, there was no one at the reception to open the entrance door(freezing outside while being on time but somehow unexpected). Each interview would run late, you wouldn't have any breaks and never asked if the new time arrangement was good for you. One of the interviewers(reaching from home) asked me 3 times to chat over coffee and sent a personal email to follow-up. They never called me back, even though CTO stressed out that any decision is rapid and communicated not longer than 1 week.
