Mission: Make commerce easy.
Purpose: Economic Empowerment.
I worked at Square full-time (More than 3 years)
I've really gained some life skills working there. I was trusted the moment I stepped a foot in the door and was respected when asking questions and encouraged to change procedures and processes that slowed progression and did not benefit the customers. I was put in charge of new development projects with any guidance I needed and was told about what other teams were working on for the sake of transparency, clarity and being able to help them if I could and wanted. Overall would definitely go back to square if I have the chance to move back to Ireland .
Some of the work hours were long, but only by your own choice.
Advice to Management
Follow up with interview candidates to give feedback on the interview, I know it takes time but it's such a personal touch and really helps people apply for jobs in the future.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Square (Melbourne) in June 2016.
Very high level generic questions along the lines of 'Why do you want to work for us' & 'What do you know about our competitors?' Really? I was missing some depth and also the provision of more information about the role, culture and potential responsibilities. Question were answered vague and very brief and the interviewer seemed to be inexperienced in interviewing,not to be prepared for the interview & hasn't focused on the actual conversation (Please don't check your emails or messages during an interview / a meeting). Question for feedback after the interview remained unanswered.
