    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Everlane full-time

    Pros

    Everlane is a respected brand in the creative industry. People want to work for it & want to work with you by affiliation. You get to learn a lot of different things because it's still run like a startup. The people who work there are smart, kind and care deeply about the brand. I echo the other reviews that say they don't regret their time at the company but they wouldn't recommend it to a friend.

    Cons

    Time off is not respected. Unlimited PTO is a catch 22 because people aren't set up to take it. Leadership is too junior and overwhelmed themselves to be able to lead well or support junior/mid level employees. Not a safe place to work as a POC. Cannot bring your whole self to work as LGBTQ. There is no professional development. Processes are non existent or confusing. No one trusts HR.

  6. "Fine Experience"

    4.0

    Pros

    Fun team, good atmosphere, and a great way to connect with people.

    Cons

    There are definitely some kinks in management. Makes it hard to move up or have your voice heard.

    Pros

    - Amazing team relationship. Everyone is super welcoming and turned to friends immediately - Management team is very caring and responsible in getting employers needs met while encouraging us to bring the best version of ourselves - Everlane as a company responeded amazingly during the whole Covid situation. Provided financial assistance.

    Cons

    - Lights are too bright at store but that is just my personal preference of enjoying natural lighting better.

    Ambassador in Palo Alto, CA
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Everlane

    Pros

    Your coworkers are amazing, the customers are okay and they usually bring in their dogs so that’s always fun. The environment is fast paced and being on your feet is great. We did get 4 items at 60% off a month and a 30% off discount.

    Cons

    The Palo Alto store has been open for less than four months and has been the worst retail job I’ve ever worked. The store leaders come from Lush, otherwise known as the most annoying place to shop. Ambassadors are told to “force customers to engage” and are pushed to contact the customer frequently. A floor leader told me “I want to be able to point to any customer in the store you know what they’re looking for, do they know everlane and the product knowledge.” The leadership style is extremely overbearing. Ambassadors are punished for giving feedback and it’s deemed as “unprofessional.” HR is not a dual advocate and once a leader says something happened, even without context, you’re done. The store has a non existent break area, the BOH has many fire code violations and often we do not have water to replenish ourselves, there is a mini fridge for about 50 employees. I guess it doesn’t matter since we have Le Labo candles in store and Aesop soap in the bathroom. Leaders want to be told how great their ideas are and nothing else. The leaders often pull you outside of the store for conversations because they don’t like the “vibe” the office gives off. After promising direct feedback, they write you up and then let you know you’re on thin ice. Everlane does not care about ambassadors or it’s retail employees, it is a toxic environment and HR doesn’t care. Even after articles written by Vice and Business Insider nothing has changed, all Everlane cares about is shutting everyone up so they can continue with their plan to go public. Customers don’t even know that everything isn’t recycled or sustainable, it’s a marketing gimmick and most of the quality is poor. The Radical Transparency is drawing people in for now but Everlane will soon become a fad. The company was created by a VC dude who is trying to tap into fashion for tech employees but when it comes to store displays and visual merchandising, he has no idea what’s he’s doing, multiple customers from buying backgrounds have mentioned it.
