    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Columbia Sportswear in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called only a day after applying online for the position to set up a time to interview at their corporate office. The interview was pretty informal with a panel of three interviewers. They introduced themselves and what their role with the company was as well as explained how their division worked in detail. They asked pretty common questions like how would you prioritize your time when working on multiple projects at once. They made clear that this position was very group oriented and you would have to easily work well with others and be a team player.
