A perfect first part-time job
Working at Columbia has shown me a lot the work was great, but it was that some of the management would stir up unnecessary drama and would cause a lot of stress on the whole team. I would recommend working here, and if you’re given the opportunity to move up in the company, I suggest you take it.

Excellent Work Envronment for Salaried Associates
I appreciated working in a new contact center during a growth period and through organizational change. However, once the objectives shifted to production it became a daily grind. Much as the company emphasized work-life balance, the customer contact environment was no more than KPIs and metrics.
Pros
Great amenities, comparable to other outdoor apprel companies
Cons
Can be too rigid for hourly jobs

Fun, but serious workplace
It's a good company for beginners in the work industry. The current managers are very friendly and they have made some changes in corporate, so the company feels safer to climb the ladder, if you wanted.

The genuinely care about how people are treated and now show it. I love the flexible hours and the ability to do more than one career, if you choose.
Pros
Helpful managers
Cons
Not much room for creativity, constant manager changes

It is a good workplace for beginners and for anyone who want to earn some extra with basic hour pay and can have up tp 40-hrs per week for part timer
It is in the mall so it's very open and at the same time, hard to find a place to rest or sit down. This is the only reason why they got 4 star to me. Beside than that, the manager and all the colleagues are very nice and easy to work with.The negative side of the job is sometimes they force you to get a specific goal in that hour.
Pros
coupon, discount
Cons
short break, only standing

Warehouse work
Typical warehouse stocking and picking. Not much to it, same thing every day. The work was pretty independent, I don't think i really even knew the names of the other people i worked with. We just showed up, did our jobs and went home. Very inclusive though, I feel like they hired people from all walks of life. So if you're in a pinch and looking for work, this is a good place for steady employment.

This job was disappointing
If you are looking for a fast pace, fun environment, this is not a great choice. It lacks leadership and this is not a company that truly cares about its workers. They do not consider that you have a life outside of work and they will not help you if you have a conflict. Lots of gossip and backstabbing... exhausting and unprofessional.

productive and a fun work environment
I had a lot of fun at the Columbia branch and got the opportunity to learn lots of cool facts about the products. I was also able to get to understand how the whole processing system works. From when they get the product to when they sensor it and put it out onto the floor for customers to buy.

Fun fast paced workplace, No commission for sales.
I liked being able to connect and help customers on a personal level. The only thing that caused me to leave was that my sales output wasn't matched with bonuses or commission and I couldn't afford to live on just their base salary

Productive and fast paced
Learned gladiator technology to due with placing orders in boxes for other companies. Constant fast paced work area at all times, not for someone that is slow or low energized. Hardest part would be maintaining the same job for more than 2 months as there are multiple lay offs within the 3 month contract period. The people are very kind and supervisors are very straight forward people, very easy to work with.
