Mixed experience!

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Wasn't the best experience overall! The job had great flexibility and work from home options, but we weren't paid appropriately for the amount of support we gave and the high expectations put on us, with growth prioritized for OG employees and favorites. Maybe things will change as WFH becomes the norm. Other than that, the CX team was the best team at Everlane. Super diverse and interesting people from all different career backgrounds!

Good environment

All my co-workers and even the leads were super nice. It definitely made working there enjoyable. However even though the job wasn't commissioned based there was still a lot of pressure from leadership on those of us who work in the front to approach customers and try and info dump them about the store. The leads would often interrupt you while you were trying to work just to make sure you were being active enough in talking to customers. If you want to work here but don't feel comfortable approaching strangers make sure to tell them to put you in the back. You won't ever have to approach strangers and you even get to listen to your own music.

Pros

Three 60% discounts per month. Unlimited 40$ discounts.

Cons

Have to aggressively approach customers

Great job for people not looking to advance

If you solely want easy income this is the job for you. I was never asked to do more than my job description. The work schedule was flexible and the coworkers were easy going. Managers definitely micromanaged but that’s what managers at most jobs do. Most people working the same positions didn’t have equal pay. Remember to advocate for yourself

Pros

Free snacks, great discount, you’ll make friends

Cons

Inexperienced management, unfair pay

The management is shady and underdeveloped.

This employer is vastly unaware of the system of customer satisfaction and deliberate wellness, instead there is a great deal of vain correspondence and preconceived rulings that only really advance them and their model versus the people they are to be caring towards.

Radically transparent? More like radically disappointing

A hugely disappointing work experience, inside and out. This brand does not operate internally anywhere near the way they appear to operate externally

great work space, and inviting

Everlane is a great place, there are great people to work with and there's a very energetic and positive environment when coming into work. On the downside scheduling can be strict.

best place to grow as an individual

I always felt really supported by my team and they were always really understanding and flexible with my schedule as I was balancing full time school work with my internship.

Very collaborative, supportive environment, but you have to be resourceful and motivated in order to stay ahead. Very faced paced environment and your successes are rewarded.

Fun Company to Work for!

Everlane really wants to find ways to make clothing that is environmentally friendly! They also want to make clothes for every body type! I had so much fun working with the people. They are young, full of ambition, love what they do and they know how to make work productive and fun!

Overhyped company underappreciated staff

Soho is a gem in NYC, it takes a certain person to want to work there considering how much of a tourist destination it has become. The staff that work in the store are an eclectic group that embrace the area and make the work fun. However there is a divide between the management staff and the rest of the staff. Maybe it is because of the "Mom and pop" mentality they have yet to realize they've outgrown their infastructure, they've asked the foh/boh to out perform themselves to make "goals" yet even after months of surpassing these goals people are not giving proper reviews and growth plans in the company. The language used by the management is so relaxed that their message has been confusing to customers and employees, especially when their actions do not match their words. It is contradicting to hire people who "have worked in the industry" yet they run this business as if nobody has worked in retail. This overcompensation of business practice undermines the mission statements made by the company. Fast fashion and "sustainability" have intersected with this brand to the point where it is time to make moves and truly grow into a company that cares about the people with "Full Transparency".

Pros

Free food, location, inclusive staff

Cons

Overworked staff, polarizing management practices

People who work there are better than the company

It's upsetting to work for a company that has such strong views about sustainablility and using ethical factories but refuses to pay their employees a living working wage, even when they are promoted to full-time! To constantly fall back on the idiom "well, the retail model will never change" is insulting. The people who work their are some of the kindest people I have ever met but are overworked, under-payed and asked to perform at a level that doesn't meet the circumstances allotted. Higher ups speak in a language and with terminology that is from another planet. If you see your employees are dissatisfied, why would you pretend everything is great? Unfortunately, this opportunity is just like other internet sales to brick and mortar start-ups- they sell a changing-of-the-tides without giving an ounce of care about the people they employ.

Pros

Do not recommend

The company culture here is great, but I personally did not feel as though management cared about the success of the employee. Compensation is very low - I knew several people who had to have multiple jobs in addition to their full time role at Everlane in order to pay their bills. The plus is that most people there are delightful to work with and they provide free food.

Pros

free lunches & breakfasts, events, happy hours

Cons

unpleasant work environment from management standpoint

Fun work place experiencing normal growing pains

Everlane is driven by its mission, and that is seen in everything that it does. However there were extreme oversights into career development, management and benefits. Work like balance is limited and there is a little support from hire-ups.

Pros

Free lunches, autonomy, young team, innovative

Cons

Low salary, limited benefits

Contract Worker

The founder/ CEO is very involved which can be a positive thing but he's a jerk so it's bittersweet. Teams are sometimes directionless and unable to keep promises. Overall the company stands for positive and impactful goals (environment, labor laws, social justice). But they have trouble enforcing that on a granular level at the home office. Employee success is dependent on the specific team, but currently the growing pains felt here are dominant.

Pros

Rapid growth

Cons

They don't take care of their new hires. After the initial ramp up period, you're basically on your own.

Great place to work

Loved working there. Amazing work environment. Everyone is very motivated and loves what they are doing. They work hard every day to achieve their goals of being a transparent company.

Uplifting and Fulfilling Job Experience

I worked in Everlane's showroom in New York and their first retail store for almost a year. Management was always incredibly uplifting and suggestions for improvements from employees were always encouraged and embraced. Definitely transparent about upcoming launches, events, what was going on within the company, etc. Shift hours were a little bit long when I first started due to lack of employees, but were much more manageable once they hired more staff. If you are working retail, be prepared for BUSY days and being on your feet. A solid lunch break, as well as 15- minute short breaks given (mandatory 45 minutes for lunch but can take up to an hour). The best coworkers EVER- I still stay in touch with all of them and you will feel part of the group instantly. Truly a place where you feel that you are making a difference- work doesn't feel like work.

Pros

Fair pay, Good breaks, Encouraging management, Great Coworkers

Cons

Long days, On your feet most of the time

Great place to work

Great place to work with lots of room for growth and opportunities to be involved and advance as you wish. Managers are very open to communication and there are regular reviews so you are aware of your performance.
