Great people, great story, healthy work life balance. I used to really enjoy working here when I first started. People were passionate, knowledgeable, worked hard and played hard. It was all consuming in the best way. Quirky and very hands on, it was a place you could learn a ton and the sky was the limit in terms of what you could achieve. Everything felt possible and we were all on a wild ride together until it all started changing about a year or so ago.
No clear brand direction, tons of turn over, low morale, loss of team culture and overall lots of chaos and confusion through out the brand. Feels like the company has really lost it's way and no one is confident in where we are going to what we are trying to achieve. Talent is walking out the door quickly. Things need to turn around fast.
Advice to Management
Invest in your people, get clear on what the brand stands for, simplify processes, consolidate the offices and make one strong passionate team. Time is running out so big decisions and measures need to be actioned quickly before everyone jumps ship.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Icebreaker (Portland, OR) in August 2015.
The first step was an online/camera interview answering personality questions. I did not meet with HR prior to taking with the hiring manager. The physical interview included multiple individuals. They had a clear type of individual in-mind for the role. The interview was very informal. They simply asked unprepared questions. I was actually expecting a more substantial process.
