    I worked at Hired full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Sales Team in Toronto was extremely good. Company culture within the team was strong. A lot of peer coaching and support from sales managers. It was a good learning environment, and opportunities were available to grow.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency and communication from senior management. The sales team had little to no understanding about what their targets and markets would be quarter to quarter. The company underwent two massive restructures under the span of 4 months - effectively destroying any sense of company culture. the CEO was absent, and senior leadership was not effective in providing suitable answers. The instability and inconsistency did not inspire productivity or morale in the individual teams.

    "Complete mess"

    2.0
    Former Employee - SDR 

    I worked at Hired full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers were great, young crowd

    Cons

    Lot of favoritism from management, do not practice what they preach. Will tell you to take accountability for your mistakes, but when they make a mistake will straight lie and say they never said that. They do nothing to actually help with your job, not having the managers wouldn't make any difference to team, if anything might've been better to not have them.

    I have been working at Hired

    Pros

    startup benefits, good compensation, and good team

    Cons

    Hired has no direction. Senior leadership is clueless about what is really going on on the floor and yet have a lot to say when it comes to promotions and lay offs. They change paths every quarter and don’t provide you with targets until half way through the quarter. Middle management is a team of puppets and micromanage everything you do and yet seem to know nothing about how to do the job themselves. On top of that, the founders are MIA and the CEO only shows up to deliver bad news. Two massive company lay offs in the past three months and let go of 95% of diversity. Hired tries to hide its broken system and management behind fancy benefits and startup perks. People at Hired are depressed because you give them targets that are unachievable and then let them go for underperforming. No solid metrics to measure performance.

    Pros

    Free Food, great coworkers, great benefits

    Cons

    Diversity: please stop promoting yourself as a diverse company because judging by how you fired almost every single woman and person of colour, diversity is the last thing on your mind. Transparency: Upper management continuously lies to the team and makes shady decisions that favour the people they like. Strategy: Terrible strategic decisions made by upper management. 2 huge employee cuts within 4 months. Women prevent other women from moving forward in the company. Career Projection: this is not the place to grow your career. Even if you're good at your job, the company will fire you or demote you if senior management does not like you. You must play office politics to succeed here. Ingenuity and integrity will not cut it. Terrible product with no guarantee of success. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    I have been working at Hired full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The great people and team, however, now they have been let go. - Snacks, 3x weekly lunch. - WFH/Flexible

    Cons

    - CEO and Founders are nowhere to be found unless when they are ready to ask you to work harder, add "10%" more, or deliver bad news. - Upper Management will micromanage and set unreasonable goals that yes would be ideal to reach, but will never be achievable due to the lack of innovation in the product. - Supposedly "experienced" Upper Management themselves have tried to sell the product and failed miserably. - The Lack of transparency and job security is some of the worst I have ever experienced in my vast career. - Upper management would run meetings with fake information, no proper agenda, and no concrete answers to employee questions all while planning to let go of the team in less than a month. - Women do not support the growth of other women on the team and constantly undermine each other. - Diversity in race, orientation, and gender are practically nonexistent considering 90% of POC's were laid off with a simultaneous 10% increase in pay and promotion rate for white employees only to stay... yet when it comes to a $ value, Hired will promote D&I and Women in every possible sales campaign. - The sell of Hired is "culture", they even have a supposed "cultures" interview however the culture here is absolutely toxic, depressing, and it will lead to the demise of this organization. - Comp plans are made to start competition and arguments between AE's and upper management. As well as AE's and their respective SDR's. - SDR's are treated in such a negative and demining manner, pinned against their respective AE's and brought in with no training but expected to hit ridiculous quotas. - Remaining AEs and SDR's who were chosen to stay was based on company politics but lack the skill and intelligence of most of the team who was laid off. - TSMs and CSMs are comped on the basis of the success of the AE's vs Clients. - HR and PR personnel are constantly overworked with no bonus on comp or action. - Marketing is beyond delusional with a team of white men discussing diversity, women's issues and how the state of salaries are in the market. - Middle management is constantly swapped out. - If you are here to grow your career this is not the place for you. - If you are here to increase your knowledge at any level this is not the place for you. - If you are here because you value honesty and integrity this not the place for you. - If you are here as a visible minority or women of colour this is not the place for you. - If you are here as an engineer and value the product this is not the place for you. - If you are here and is anyone with a sane state of mind this is not the place for you.

    Pros

    No matter your role in the company, you're always valued and heard, and changes are made - never worked for a company that does this.

    Cons

    Isn't necessarily a lot of room to grow if you're in a remote office, but this is actively being worked on by the People team.
