    Panel interview with scripted questions but many of them focused on the interviewee's personal experience with their product. They seek out employees who love Converse as much as they do.

Converse is the story of a sneaker that started on the court and moved to the stage and street. We’re a company ready for change and that’s who we hire: the most malleable, the most innovative, and the most creative. Our clothes and sneakers have been worn by rebels, rockers, rappers, artists, thinkers, and individuals. So that’s why we hire individuals. So we’re speaking the same language.

In April 2015, Converse is moving their world headquarters to the North End of Boston.
