On Wednesday, September 20th, a group of employees of Columbia Sportswear put their volunteer hours to use at the Portland Veterans Stand Down event. The event, organized by The Transitions Project, honors and supports Veterans, many of whom are often either experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Many members of the Oregon community came together to provide support through a variety of resources including Employment, Health & Wellness, Veteran Intake for Programs & Services, Pet Care, and more. Our Employee Resource Group, BRAVO (Bringing Representation and Valor to the Outdoors), has participated in the event for the past 3 years and looks forward to continuing their support through volunteer opportunities and product donations. #lifeatcolumbiasportswearcompany #lifeatcsc

      Interview was on the informal side, the interviewer was friendly and made the interview more conversational. I first talked to a recruiter and then had 3 separate panel interviews. The panel interviews were mostly focused on my experience to ensure I was a good fit for the role.

      Describe a time when you experienced push back from stakeholders while working on a project.
