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

    Pros

    Thumbtack actually cares about their employees, pros on the platform, and customers. It has been amazing to work for a company that prioritizes time off, benefits, and mental health, while still offering challenging and engaging work.

    Thumbtack is very thorough in their hiring practices, and as a result, we have a lot of great people.

    Cons

    From where I am sitting, I do not feel like there are many clear paths to growing into leadership. However, I do not feel this is the same for all teams at TT.

    Advice to Management

    Marco has a good vision for the future of the company and I really appreciate that the end result of the success of Thumbtack is the success of small businesses. As long as we focus on developing with the customer and pro experience in mind, it will be hard to go wrong.

    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ban Phone Savang (Laos)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Thumbtack (Ban Phone Savang (Laos)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Had a phone screening that was relatively straight forward. I felt like the person interviewing me wasn't really paying attention or didn't have my resume in front of him, which was obnoxious.

    I was then sent over a Community Manager test. One of the things that companies like this need to realize is that many Community/Social Media specialists are not comfortable providing them with intellectual property. Having someone fresh out a social strategy is requesting work of someone...so don't be surprised when you get something that is slightly on the conservative creative side. If you really want to see us get creative then offer to at the very least pay us something first. You wouldn't ask a plumber to fix one toilet for free to gauge how well they do their job; this is no different.
