+ Free, unlimited snacks
+ Sit/stand desks
+ Exceptional pay for the amount of effort expected
+ Pay raises every 6 months (though this may change with the new vendor)
+ Hour-long lunches
+ Working for an industry leader on the cutting edge of technology
+ They took care of us during COVID lockdown - paying us full salary despite being unable to work. For that, Waymo will always have my respect.
- No upward mobility
- No PTO (though that may change with the new vendor)
- No real benefits (though, again, this may change with the new vendor)
- non-traditional weekends/hours. Nobody here works a 9-5, Mon-Fri
- Limited access to information, with more restrictions by the day.
- Your ideas will be discredited if your badge is the wrong color (ie you're not a WAYMO employee, but a temp/vendor).

Working with Waymo was the first job I've loved in a very long time. A lot of folks leave bitter because they shot and missed their opportunity at a SM position- and that's not fair to the company as a whole.
That being said, you have lost some strong operations talent because of your caste system. The transition to a vendor is a step in the right direction, but it's simply too little, too late for a lot of folks like myself. I poured my soul into my work here and I loved Waymo- but at the end of the day, none of that matters because my badge was red and not white.
You /really/ want my advice?
Nobody is going to work their hardest until they have skin in the game. You do that by making it a dream to work here. Stop locking down information and instead encourage curiosity. Give your operations team bonuses, incentives, and a chance to become a Waymo FTE and you'll earn the loyalty of a team that will go to war until the end of days for you.
Until then, morale will continue to be low and your competitors will happily scoop up those that you have spurned.

Ik heb via een uitzendbureau gesolliciteerd. De procedure duurde meer dan 3 maanden. Ik heb gesolliciteerd bij Waymo (Chandler, AZ (Verenigde Staten)) in april 2019.
Your interview is with two hiring managers and another interviewee. One person sits in the driver seat while the other sits passenger and the managers in the back. The one driving is answering questions given by the hiring managers (basically talking) while following driving directions given by the passenger. Its the easier portion of the interview, just make sure you are driving impeccable and abiding by all rules of the rode (using signal, checking speed limit, stopping at red lights on a right turn). The person sitting passenger is giving directions from google maps while its on silent, and evaluating the driver + car by typing observations on a laptop, while also answering some questions from the managers (i found this to be the harder aspect, as its multitasking x3). You drive to a destination of their choice and then switch places and the other interviewee drives back. Takes about an hour total. You have to back the vehicle into a spot ( but the vehicles have back up cameras)
