    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Backcountry.com full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, fun industry, a perfect location in Park City, discounts on gear, opportunity for people that work hard and have good attitudes, and a culture that encourages you to get outside and use the products we sell. I feel very fortunate to be able to come to work at Backcountry every day.

    Cons

    Too many competing priorities, but company is getting better at managing this.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the customer and what makes us unique.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Backcountry.com (Christiansburg, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Got a phone call two weeks after applying online. I missed the call, left a voicemail and was called back the next morning for a phone interview. Then I was invited to a tour of the distribution center and an in person interview a week later. That took a full hour and I was hired on the spot.
