    I have been working at DraftKings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome people, challenging work, and always something new...I can't believe I have passed my 2.5 year mark. I feel like I have lived 3 life times at DK and can't see myself leaving anytime soon. We are fully remote until July at this rate, which has been a challenge for everyone. But even then, the company has been SO transparent with updates & news. They are allocating funds for officer furniture & WFH necessities. Always putting us first.

    I miss the office and my teammates but I know someday we will get back to that and be better than ever.

    Some more pros - internal mobility, being compensated fairly with promotions if you do a good job, quality management etc

    Cons

    Crazy busy but we are creating an industry so, it comes with the territory

    Advice to Management

    Keep making your employees feel valued like I do, they won't ever want to leave. Cut loose the talent that does not benefit the changing industry.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at DraftKings (Toronto, ON) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Phone interview, standard past experience questions, some industry knowledge questions as well. Overall it went really well, engaged well with the interviewer and was able to answer all of her questions thoughtfully and thoroughly.
