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

    Pros

    - Dynamic team--everyone in the office is incredibly hardworking and talented
    - Better than average pay and benefits for local job market
    - Great opportunities to take ownership in an entry-level role
    - Quickly growing market means there's lots of room for growth, progression, and cross-functional exposure
    - Transparent company culture

    Cons

    - Sometimes daily work can feel distant from the product and mission since Square is not available in Ireland yet
    - The primary office locations in the US means there can be some time delays for cross-functional work (this is improving though!)

    Customer Success Advocate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Square (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted shortly after.

    The first interview was a screening by HR then I had three interviews with different Leads/Manager.

    The last part was to be a 4 hours session.

    It started by 3 half hours having different chat/interview with employee who would have been my colleagues, then with a trainer, then mock up call with two leads. Up to this point everything went well, I was told that there would be a fifteen minutes break.

    When I joined back the video call the person who answered wasn't the one I was suppose to meet, the person then told me that the interview process would stop here and there. No reason provided only that someone from recruiting would contact me later.

    To say I was shocked was an under statement, as like I said up to this point the communication was so great and fluid.

    However I had to chase to obtain a reason and clarification as to what happen and the reason provided was extremely weird..

    I was told that they had a business emergency, and that they had decided to go with someone internal. I am still confused as to how this could have happened in the space of fifteen minutes.

    I understand that company may have emergency and I would have understood that they cut my interview short because of that, but then to say we'll go with someone internal?

    I just am still confused at how it was handled and feel that I was not valued appropriately when I had to be the one chasing for the reason as to why the interview was cut short.

    I don't hold grudges against the company, I just hope that they take note of the experience in orde to avoid this happening to someone else.

    All the best to the person who will be having this position and to the Dublin team who I chatted to as they were friendly and professional.

    Zooming Out From Engineering

    Leading an organization of 10 employees is considerably different than leading an organization of 10,000+ employees. As teams increase and communication becomes more challenging, a lot can break down. In this episode of Greymatter, we share a fireside discussion from the 2019 SFELC Summit on building and managing scaling teams. NodeSource VP of Engineering, Chanda Dharap talks with Square's Head of Seller & Developer Business Units & Infrastructure Engineering, Alyssa Henry.
