- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Converse in March 2015.Interview Details
First I applied online and uploaded my resume with the application. (Recommended) I've always worked in the restaurant business and this is my first retail. After a week and a half I got a call right after my last day of work at a restaurant (Talk about perfect timing) I was asked by the hiring manager if I had a couple minutes and I told him sure. I was a little startled when I realized he was giving me a phone interview at that I just clocked out of work and I had a long morning. But I went with the interview and was asked first about my application and work history and to confirm it, then he asked "why converse?" and honestly all i said was because i loved their work environment and i love converse and their sneakers. I thought I had messed up my interview but turns out he was really cool and scheduled me for an interview on tuesday (this was on a friday) and so I went. Knowing it's converse I went in with casual long sleeve from H&M (Plain black) cacky slim fit pants and my low top black and white classic converse. Do not go over dressed or in a suite and a tie. Go casual and for a plus wear nike's or chucks ! preferably chucks. It was a very chill and laid back interview and the managers were super beyond cool! I was greeted by two, one girl and another guy who was taking notes. It was a group interview ,5 including myself. One Thing is for sure is you NEED TO BE YOURSELF AND NOT BE NERVOUS. Go in confident and interact with the managers, mainly the one who's talking to you. I dropped a couple jokes here and there and made them all laugh and had a conversation with the managers and even the other people who cam to the interview. When they see you that comfortable and relaxed that's what they're looking for. Also one thing the guy manager stated was that they can teach you and train you how to work there and all, but personality is something they can't, which made a big point and i loved. They mainly looking for a great personality and someone they can invite to their family pretty much. So go there with confidence, dressed casual and interact with the managers. We were asked about 4 questions and took awhile due to the conversations in between. Took about an hour and 10 minutes, and was told they had a couple interviews and said they'll call or email us by friday. The next afternoon at 12 pm i got a call confirming my email and was told i got offered the position and will be sent an email to my background check.
Glassdoor helped a lot, listen and look through all the interview reviews, and just go with confidence and act like you're meeting new friends.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview

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.
