    I have been working at Arc'teryx full-time

    Pros

    I've been working here for 3 years, and can say I've never worked for a company as well rounded or just straight up awesome.

    If improvements can be made, they are made. Not just in your localized work group, but company wide. Whether that's introducing better process, more transparency, or just making the workplace more inviting and welcoming, stuff gets done.

    There's no pretense and if you voice your opinion, it is heard.

    Cons

    Opportunities for progression aren't as common as they might be at start-ups or smaller companies—but that's because people tend to stick around.

    Pattern Maker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Arc'teryx (Vancouver, BC) in January-2011.

    Interview

    The interview itself was really quite brief and vague. It didn't go much beyond somewhat awkward small talk, and the obligatory past salary, expected salary, future goals stuff.
    The real thing is the pattern making test, which if you're a competent pattern maker you'll fly through. You're allowed up to three hours to make a pattern for a current product from a block.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate anything.
