    I have been working at TOMS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small but mighty, TOMS has an amazing team. It's truly impressive to see how much can be accomplished by a targeted group of passionate people who truly want to improve lives through business. Outside of the adorable puppies, slides, ping pong tables at HQ, this is a business that truly balances the work hard/play hard mentality. TOMS ensures everyone is here for the same reason, even offering "Giving Trips" to employees, placing true meaning behind the work we do every day. Simply put, I’m proud to work at TOMS.

    Cons

    Depending on how you look at it, some may struggle without a process or procedure around every component of their day. For those that want more of the same, this may not be the ideal company. For anyone searching for a way to utilize their business acumen while making a positive impact in the world, this is THE place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. The future potential of this company is yet to be realized and management does an incredible job of being transparent and strategic.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TOMS in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very efficient and well-planned. The first call with the recruiter was great. She knew a lot about the specifics of the role and gave an extensive overview of the company. She then connected me with the hiring manager for a phone interview, which was about an hour long. Lastly, there was a series of 4 interviews (phone) with various members from corporate.
