    I have been working at TOMS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It has been an amazing ride ever since the first day I stepped into HQ.
    From an almost week-long orientation process where we are immersed in the TOMS culture, to the giving trips where we get to complete the full circle in TOMS' "One for One," it is a completely unique and gratifying experience that very few get to experience. While it is true that employees are treated to all-you-can-drink latte's, on-campus happy hours, yearly company retreats, and amazing benefits, we are all expected to perform and place it all on the line day after day.

    TOMS is still very much a movement and like any ripple in the water, the movement is continuing to grow. My coworker and I ask each other all the time if we've ever had those days where we really don't want to show up to work. I'll write back here once the answer ever becomes 'Yes.'

    Cons

    TOMS is a dichotomy of a laid back culture within a fast paced work environment. Those unequippped to deal with this fusion could easily find themselves losing their footing very quickly. The management staff is always willing to help those that find themselves on this track, it's just a matter of asking!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and continue to remember that we are transforming the way businesses are run, everyday decisions are made, and lives are changed.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TOMS in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    My interview process was extremely quick. I applied online, received a phone screen call from the recruiter a few days later. I went in for an in-person interview two days after that, scheduled my second round of interviews the same day I had gone in for the first round. I was made an offer the evening of my second round of interviews.

In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.®

Realizing that One for One could serve other global needs, Blake launched TOMS Eyewear in 2011 to help restore sight to persons in need with every purchase of sunglasses and optical frames. In 2014, TOMS Roasting Co. launched with the mission to provide clean water to developing...
