    I have been working at Handy full-time

    Pros

    Empowered to make decisions and drive action across the organization. Company focus on personal development and growth. Management and peers open to new ideas. Fast-paced, ever-changing, company has tons of growth potential

    Cons

    Very direct communication style. Can get talked over easily. Organization can feel siloed depending on the group. Everyone stretched thin

    Advice to Management

    Find times to give positive feedback to the company outside of all hands

    Handy Cleaner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Handy (Vancouver, BC) in July-2017.

    Interview

    All online, just submit a background check and fill out the form and wait. It took about 2 weeks for the background check to process but that was all they needed. No interaction with any person, which is never a good idea but Handy thinks so
