-Pay is great for a job right out of school! 42,500/year -Benefits are great! -Lifestyle spending account -They send you all the equipment you need! (laptop, mouse, monitor, keyboard, etc) -4-5


-talking with merchants on the phone can be very stressful. Especially when they ask you for business advice and they expect an answer right away, but their question involves you to do some research.

  1. Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Shopify (United States)


    Interview was fine. went through the full loop incl virtual onsite. it's a lot for a person to go through, both mentally/emotionally and timewise. but surprisingly SHOPIFY DOESN'T CARE! i was ghosted - don't know how else to say word, no follow up...even though i followed up with a nice message to the recruiter. i will never understand why you have to leave someone hanging instead of even simply copy pasting a rejection email. it genuinely hurts and is damaging to someone who went through a lot, and got good feedback/reinforcement, to not even get the courtesy of a rejection. just, nothing.

    and so despite the interview process and people being fine throughout - one of the interviewers seemed miserable - this stands out as THE worst process i've ever been through, and i've been through lots of em. i've gotten offers and i've been rejected, but i've never been ghosted

    it goes without saying that i would never apply for anything at shopify again, and based on the fact that my experience isn't isolated (read other reviews) you shouldn't either. i'll make sure to share my experience with anyone and everyone too, forever.
