    Amazing leadership, amazing benefits, collaborative environment, amazing "peeps"


    Highs and lows of employees collaborating after work hours on 20% work, at times it was very active, other times it lulled during stressful times when probably needed extra effort towards that the most. Most of the time 20% work was during work hours which was hard to manage with other more top functional priorities. All in all though, not too much of a con, just giving more depth of my experiences.

    Keep on keeping on :)

    Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Centro (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in September 2017.


    Recruiter reached out via email and hopped on a call the next day, where I was told that I’d be brought into meet with the team as I passed the initial screening. Then, I was told the position was on hold. A few weeks later, the same recruiter reached out saying the position is looking to be filled in the new year. At this point, they decided to get me on a call with the Hiring Manager, and after that I had to speak with 2 other team members who weren’t really sure about the position I was interviewing for and how they would be working with me potentially, if at all. Next, I was brought in to meet with 2 VPs and the Hiring Manager again - the time between the first and final interview was about 5 weeks (including the lag). Thereafter, I would receive an email every week about how they were interested in my candidacy and then I finally moved on with another offer because they took too long to make up their mind.
