Operations (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 2, 2014
Fab was a fantastic place to work with amazing benefits, and even better coworkers. Where things went wrong was the use of all the VC money. The company grew from about 200 employees to nearly 700 in a little over a year, and with several pivots in the business model it became unsustainable. I truly miss working there, but not all start-ups make it, right?
Relaxed and fun place to work at, unskilled management
German Speaking Customer Care Agent (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 25, 2015
The work was very easy, the snacks and lunch great. Supervisors are generally very friendly, but the lower and upper management arrogant and unskilled in communication and team leading. The schedule was good and the work-life balance was ok. However the payment was very low.
Free lunch, unlimited snacks, easy job
Unskilled management, unprofessional communication, not transparent
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Keasbey, NJ – March 4, 2014
This place is a dead end job, with no way to advance position and no way to move up in the world. The hardest part of the job was staying on my feet all day.The best part of the job was the free lunches.
Crackerjack (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 24, 2014
Management is too young to make anything work. The only young manager who was great and smart enough to do anything of benefit was the VP of Customer Service.
The benefits were AMAZING. $20 towards gym membership, pre-tax transit, amazing medical/dental/vision, catered lunches everyday, so so so many snacks, and the discount is just perfect.
Overall it was a pretty good place to work. It's fun. Recently there have been a lot of layoffs - so job security is not there and morale is extremely down. No one is happy who still works there, and almost everyone is hoping to get a new job soon.
Asst. Buyer - Lighting & Furniture (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 20, 2013
Quite possibly the most fun I've ever had that was also work. Typical weeks were 50 hours+; however, the incredibly creative environment and camaraderie made it fly. Really learned how to build relationships with vendors in mutually beneficial ways and was completely trusted by management to go after designers and vendors I loved.
Free lunches, lots of perks, nice equity options, awesome people
