    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Everlane.

    Interview

    Total Interviews = 8 (inclusive of phone, skype, and in person)

    Duration = 4 mos

    Difficulty = 2 out of 10, not difficult if you truly understand the Everlane ethos and thoroughly, clearly explain and provide examples of your professional experience. I would've given this a zero, but the multiple assignments given to me were very time-consuming and borderline annoying because it made me "feel" like Everlane may consider my ideas to better themselves b/c all of the assignments were on the basis of "how can you improve Everlane".

    Misc = Note you will/may be asked to complete 3-4 assignments. After each submission, you will be asked to give a presentation based on your assignments and to explain your thought process.

    Pros = all white interior of their corporate office & the hipster cafe, located less than 200 meters away. Kudos for their consistent, heavy marketing efforts to appear sustainable by using key words, such as radical transparency, ethical practices, accountability, etc. Lastly, sure, let's give them credit in their participation to stop human trafficking although its unclear how genuine this initiative is.

    Cons = *PLEASE READ* It is not my intention to bash Everlane, but it is my intention to shed light.
    EVERLANE IS NOT CERTIFIED BY A THIRD-PARTY B CORPORATION like allbirds and Patagonia. When a fashion brand is B Corp certified, it guarantees that the brand is meeting or beating the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. Certified B-Corps are highly, highly, highly impressive companies, adhering to STRICT ethical business practices. Thus, it is very rare to come across a fashion brand that is B-Corp Certified. In addition, EVERLANE IS NOT CRADLE-TO-CRADLE CERTIFIED. When a brand is C2C certified (see Stella McCartney), it means that they use natural raw materials in its virgin state so that it can be safely returned to the environment (biodegradable), ultimately supporting a truly sustainable, circular economy. Anyone can claim how they're revolutionary, sustainable and/or ethical. Anyone can post images of their factories and expose the cost of a product and deem it to be radically transparent. But not anyone can back it up with FACTS and CERTIFICATION. For example, I can publicly claim that I've graduated from a prestigious Ivy league, such as Stanford University, but I don't have a diploma to support it. Please keep this in mind if you're genuinely a pro-planet professional looking for an employer who aligns w/your environmental practices and beliefs.

    Offer Letter: Did not receive an offer letter, assuming because I questioned their sustainability practices. If you're truly passionate about the environment, you, as an interviewer, are in the right to (gracefully and honestly) ask these questions to ensure your beliefs and values align with the employer.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you improve Everlane's corporate processes, practices, and/or products?
