Mission: To inspire adventures in nature, wearing nature.
I have been working at Icebreaker full-time (More than a year)
Great work-life balance, educated and passionate coworkers, growing company, strong leadership report from the top down.
Very little cons. Can be challenging to be a global brand with internal communication at times.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing. Very soon we'll both market and execute our great story at a new level!
I applied online. I interviewed at Icebreaker (Portland, OR) in June 2017.
I applied online and got a phone call response in less than a day, which was a positive start. The process was a little spread out, with about a week between the initial contact, a first, in person interview, and then a second, video skype with a few international people. There was also some online personality and cognitive tests they sent me later in the process.
My role will be relatively new for the company, so responsibilities aren't fully defined yet. Everyone I talked to was very honest about the position and what I assume the company style will be like. One thing that I noticed was a minimal amount of cross department involvement. So it's hard to say if this was just the way for the Ecommerce department or a company wide process/style.
I think I was on the higher end of experience of their candidates, which may be influential to how they responded to me, but I got a lot of positive reinforcement around if I could/should do the job.
Overall I got a sense of honesty and personal interest in who joins the team, which are qualities that I appreciated and gave me a positive interview experience.
