    Retail store - Great pay for retail, but the boredom is still included.

    Pros

    The pay is great compared to other retailers. Management accommodates your living situation, let's say if you were to move to a new city - they may up your pay rate. If you love to organize, Icebreaker/retail is your job to have. The co-workers tend to match up with the company culture/lifestyle - very laid back, fun, outgoing, talkative. You are surrounded with amazing clothing. The company discount is very generous and you get to pick out an outfit or two when you first initially start with the company.

    Cons

    Retail is slow. You have to be O.K. with keeping yourself busy. Inventory count/seasonal changes are tedious. The turnover rate is consistent given that retail isn't usually an end-goal for someone's career - all depends though.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Icebreaker.

    Interview Details

    First interview via automated Skype video'd questionnaire. It was a pre-recorded interviewer. It was brilliant to get rid of those initial questions everyone asks. Second interview was a live one. It was friendly, encouraging, casual, but I felt I got a chance to know them. Third interview was with a panel. In hind-sight, it seemed to just be a bunch of random people from the office. It was light. Intentionally non-intimidating. We had fun and it was apparent the people in the company were a great group.

    Interview Questions
    • Speaking about challenges at my previous employment. Questions about my active lifestyle; everyone here is so active, I felt in comparison, I wasn't! Everyone truly does live the outdoor lifestyle Icebreaker promotes.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Their offer exceeded my expectations greatly and it was refreshing to not have to go through a process.
