    I have been working at Bodybuilding.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Employees are empowered to make changes
    -Flexible work hours and work from home opportunities
    -No micromanagement
    -Strong female leadership in e-commerce
    -Ability to impact decisions at all levels
    -Opportunities for growth and advancement

    With the recent departure of the former Chief Digital Officer the company and environment have significantly improved. The focus shifted from one man’s egotistical dictatorship to a much more open, collaborative environment. The SVP of E-Commerce is smart, decisive and focuses her energy and team on driving meaningful change.

    Cons

    Still some hangover from old, “not my job” culture causes some accountability issues

    Certain departments continue to drag their feet and over process instead of thinking how a project could help drive the business.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on rebuilding the damage done by the former CDO. Take action sooner on executives that are causing damage to the company. Continue to empower your employees to make change. Invest more in technology for the store team.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bodybuilding.com in July 2019.

    Interview

    I applied for the position in early June, and did not hear back from the company until early July. I was asked to set up a phone screen with a recruiter. I spoke to her over the phone. The recruiter introduced herself, and asked me about myself. While talking to Tawny she sounded like she genuinely cared about my work history and the things I'm passionate about outside of work. I imagine she talks to a lot of people a day, so making me feel like I was important was nice. We talked about my experience, my knowledge base, how I hone my skills and grow them. I know she has never been an engineer, but she was able to talk to me intelligently. When I asked her about the company, you could hear the passion in her voice about the company. She answered questions about the team, the culture, the different databases, and some of how the company is moving. I am currently waiting to hear how her talk with the hiring managers went, but she left me with the feeling that Bodybuilding.com is the company I want to work for!
