    “I think startup life is about wanting to be a part of something larger than yourself, to add value to anyone you work with, and building structure in a place where there might not be anything.” Meet Emily, our Senior Account Manager! At Bench since 2018, Emily shares her journey in our latest article:

  • How We’ve Been Adapting to a Fully Remote Workspace. If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that as humans, we adapt. At Bench, we are no different. In mid-March 2020, over the span of one week, we went from roughly 400 Benchmates operating out of 3 office spaces, to a fully functioning distributed workforce. This is how remote work-life looks like for us— from our home office set-ups, building calendars, to tips on maintaining your productivity, health and wellness at home.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bench Accounting.

    Interview

    I really enjoyed the interview process, it was very low-stress and easy. I first talked to a recruiter who asked me behavioural questions, then at the end of the interview she told me she was going to schedule me in for an interview with some people on the team. I met with 2 people and they once again asked mostly behavioural questions and questions about my experience, it was very laid back and felt more like a conversation than an interview. They are very focused on seeing how you would fit in with the culture and values at Bench and seem to prioritize that over your experience. I received an offer shortly after the interview.
