    I worked at Ariat full-time (more than 3 years)


    Leading brand represented by the best sales team in the industry who always deliver. Opportunity for growth both in the business and for team members who want to grow and develop. Close attention to monitoring business metrics which leads to better results. Lack of pretense in the environment and from the CEO. Fair and competitive compensation packages. Dog friendly!


    Opportunity to further develop training programs for employees.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Ariat.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took almost a month. Although I enjoyed the recruiter and hiring manager I spoke with I found their interview process to be extremely disorganized. I'm not sure if it was due to lack of HR recruiters and staffing agents or they don't have a set process. I applied to the job 3 - 4 months prior to finally hearing from them - which tends to be per usual with most companies. The recruiter asked me to set up available dates to talk. After not hearing anything for more than a week I tried contacting her again. Once we finally set a date to talk I decided to let the mishap slide. Maybe she was busy or on vacation. Another week or so went by and the recruiter asked to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. I sent her three available times, as requested, and never heard anything. No confirmation or follow up. Then I got a call during one of the available time slots. Thankfully I was still free and not totally caught off guard - I had a feeling this would probably happen. After that I sent follow up emails to the recruiter, but never heard from her again. Although I found their lack of organization unprofessional the recruiter and hiring manager were extremely interesting and enjoyable to talk with. I wish the job worked out as it's hard to find an equestrian brand/company based in the Bay Area.
