"When I came to The North Face in 2009, my idea of getting outdoors was a nice day on the golf course. Since I have joined The North Face, I have run a number of 5Ks, including two Warrior Dashes. I have been rock climbing, snorkeling, kayaking, zip lining, hiking and camping in just the past few years, all of which are activities I had never done before. The inspiration for these activities comes not only from my fellow co-workers but from the overall attitude of The North Face. This company lives up to its mantra of Never Stop Exploring and genuinely intends to inspire its employees as well as its customers. I have worked for a number of retail companies in my career, and I can honestly say that I have never worked for a company that cares for and inspires its employees more than The North Face. Here you are not just another employee number, you are an ambassador of The North Face. It’s a big responsibility, but it is well worth it. The North Face has given me the inspiration to change my life."
