    I worked at Thule full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I worked for Thule for almost a decade and it was a great environment to work in with even better people, for the most part. There is a family-like atmosphere and everyone is passionate about the brand, which makes it a fun place to work. I was promoted a few times in my time there, they allowed for flexible schedules and the benefits were decent. It was getting to be a bit corporate when I left, but it was a great experience working there and I leaned a lot from managers, VP's, etc. The thing that I liked most about working for Thule was everyone was approachable and upper management was always open to new ideas and encouraged you to grow. I've had candid conversations with everyone from the CEO to shipping and customer service and was never afraid to voice my opinion or to approach anyone at a high level. Overall, it was a fun place to work with little to no drama as I've seen with other brands I've worked for since leaving Thule.

    Cons

    Pay is a bit low, but they are pretty much in line with other Outdoor/Bike industry brands. There is a bit of a "boys club" there and if you're in with the right people you have a better chance of moving up. They were a little acquisition crazy for awhile and I felt it got in the way of the big picture at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at what non-industry companies in the area are paying to be more in line with job market in CT. Don't let friendships get in the way of making the right decisions when it comes to promotions, etc.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Thule.

    Interview Details

    They initially called me and weren't offering enough money. They called back a week later and had increased the salary range.

    The interview was conducted primarily by the HR director, while the hiring manager mostly sat in the background. The HR director was bossy and had me play some silly card game that was supposed to reveal something about the type of worker I am.

    Interview Questions
    • They kept asking why I wanted to leave my current job. The HR director kept acting like she'd forgotten what I'd said the previous times she'd asked.   Answer Question
