I worked at Anthro full-time (More than 3 years)
Anthro hires smart people. Lots of quirky personalities, some good quirky, some just plain odd. People stay a long time because the pay is slightly better than average and the benefits are good. Great desks! New management, Ergotron, is great!
Ugly, shabby offices. A few employees have power struggles and the instigators get away with it because they've worked there forever and ever. Makes lots of people miserable.
Advice to Management
Get rid of people that don't work well on teams. Keep the people that have demonstrated an ability to support their coworkers. Also, trust your employees to do the jobs you hire them to do instead of micromanaging them.
I applied online. I interviewed at Anthro.
The interview was more like a meet and greet, and in an open forum style. Typical Q&A format. But it is realy bad when you are invited to interview for one role and the present you a role beneath that. 8 years in management, it is insulting to be asked if I would like the associates role. Job hunting as a whole is annoying I dont need my interviewer giving my career a demotion right before my very eyes
