Pros

Worked at Lightspeed for the past years and have been really happy with my place of work. The team is awesome and everyone supports each other while the manager is giving it her most to give her team

Cons

The communication between certain departments could be better. It seems like sometimes work from other departments is delegated instead of trying to get the job done as efficient as possible.

Keep up the great work

  1. Systems Administrator Interview

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lightspeed (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    An initial 30-minute Zoom call from one of the HR guys in Berlin that goes over the role, company, etc. and we discuss what motivates me, what I'm doing at the moment, etc. Second interview with two chaps from the relevant department (again by Zoom - one in Montreal, the other in Amsterdam) who don't give out too much information about what the job involves - it's mainly me discussing what I've done and why I want to move on from my existing role. I don't get much of a feel about the job nor does it expand on the vagueness of the job description. I don't think they were even bothering to listen to me properly. It seems to me they were deliberately vague so that they could change the goalposts during the screening process. I wish I had read some of the company reviews here before even applying because I'd never would have bothered.
