Converse began in 1908 as a rubber shoe company specializing in galoshes. Soon after, we started using our rubber to make sneakers. In 1920, we renamed our canvas basketball sneaker the “All Star.” The name stuck. What didn’t stick was their intention. We made them to sink jump shots on the court. You, however, saw them as something more… and started wearing our sneakers to do whatever you wanted. You played music, made art, skated the streets and kicked back. You wore them as fashion. You wore them to work. You customized them with your personal style. You did everything to them, and in them. You saw our sneakers’ unlimited potential..
To this day, this spirit continues with all of our sneakers and apparel for All Star, Cons and Jack Purcell. As soon as you put them on and start doing your thing, their true life begins. You define them. You determine their journey. They become a one-of-a-kind celebration of your individuality and self-expression. They become a part of you. They’re Made by you.

I worked at Converse part-time
Very customer-service driven. The best is expected out of employees. Management is extremely motivated and extremely interested in helping out its employees. Really, really was happy working here.
Not really any cons working for Converse, actually. The communication was never an issue, really. I would be curious to see what moving up in the system would be like.
Advice to Management
Keep on emphasizing customer service and continue teaching associates the best way to do so. I really believe that this is one of the best stores for customer service I have ever seen.
I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Converse.
Went to college fair, applied in person, were looking to hire several employees, Recieved a call over the phone with district manager, over the phone interview, asked basic questions, retail so not really difficult. Asked to go to a large meeting with other candidates, called by store manager and asked more basic questions, offered job a day later.
