    I worked at Alternative Apparel full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Laid back, relax atmosphere, good gatherings

    Cons

    Bad management, unfair manages who kept their jobs even if they did nothing but report on what their talented team did when the manager had no clue on how to do anything themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Test peoples skill sets and see how they get their work done.

      I worked at Alternative Apparel full-time

      Pros

      Met great people and had weekends off.

      Cons

      For others they find it hard to move up within in the company.

      Advice to Management

      Start listening to all employees starting from the bottom. Go back to the basics and show you still care.

      Pros

      Very organic creative company with lots of great people.

      Because its such an organic company people are allowed to do whatever they want which makes it difficult to complete your tasks sometimes.

      I worked at Alternative Apparel full-time

      Pros

      Alternative has such a fun, casual atmosphere. A lot of the employees are true friends who care about each other and hang out often outside of work. The benefits are great, and the office always feels abuzz, so no day is quiet or boring.

      Cons

      The only one that sticks out was that re-organizations happened often, so people got shuffled around a fair amount and sometimes had several supervisors in a short amount of time.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to offer and focus on the existing programs that foster Alternative's culture.

      I have been working at Alternative Apparel part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      if you are working on the retail side of things, the company is smaller in this aspect (only having 3 brick and mortars), so the amount of trust and responsibility given to store-level employees is fantastic, really allowing the team on the ground to call the shots.

      Cons

      The store level can feel disconnected from corporate overlook at times, making things difficult to get done, but overall not a big issue.
