Orvis Corporate Headquarters: A great way to live, a great place to work.

“One of my career goals was to work at a place where people were excited to be there. I found that within Orvis.

When I started at Orvis, I was in an entry-level position and my supervisor put in the effort and time to train me and serve as a mentor. I’d talked about the possibility for advancement with my supervisor. When there was an opening for a Product Development Specialist, he knew I was interested and was truly invested in my success. It worked.

My experience now includes international travel, negotiating with vendors, sourcing, and merchandising which is a phenomenal foundation for a career here or anywhere in the world for that matter.

Orvis is smart, they want to attract people here and offer things which keep them happy. People want to see you succeed, they want you to be challenged and they will make themselves available to you regardless of your role.

It’s a great company for a self-starter who wants to live and work in an amazing location. The products we make as a company are very unique, and we all have something in common - an interest in quality of life, the outdoors and the environment, whether it’s fly fishing and hunting or skiing and gardening.

— Meg Keller, an Orvis Associate since 2004. Meg was promoted in October 2005 from her job as Merchandise Coordinator to a Product Development Specialist in our Rod & Tackle department, and was promoted again in 2008 as a Product Development Specialist in our Men's Apparel department.

“As a seventh-generation Vermonter, I am extremely grateful that Orvis is here.

I’ve lived here all my life and worked in retail, but really wanted to take my career to the next step. I came in to interview at Orvis and was so impressed. Although I’d grown up down the street, I had no idea that this world-class operation existed in the mountains. I’ve been with the company since the year 2000. Bring Our Children To Work Day is so special, because the kids can really see all the opportunities and types of jobs that exist right here in our community, opportunities that I didn’t know existed here in Vermont. Our Associates also participate in a school mentoring program, which is another great way to reach out to the community.

Orvis is a great place to work because of the environment. Our opinions really matter and are heard all the way to the top. Any Associate has the ability to go far, because it is a learning environment where one person can make a real difference.

Our benefits are great. We have a 401K with a substantial company match. The health insurance is the best in this area, and it includes dental and vision coverage. Our Associates receive a generous employee discount as well.

Orvis makes products that people value for generations. And we live the sporting lifestyle at work. I have learned to canoe and fly fish during lunch break! Orvis encourages a balanced, healthy lifestyle.”

“I can’t put a price tag on time I spend with my family.”

“I worked in New York City for 17 years. I started working here in 1994; now I can’t imagine living anywhere else. This area is a haven for kids to grow up in—the schools are fabulous and there are lots of activities.

We do a lot of hard work in our department, but we have a good group. I think you can get a lot more done if you like the environment you are working in; enthusiasm is key to our success. There is more of a balance here—if you want to leave early to see your son’s lacrosse game, you can.”

— Don Benasich, Director of Outlet

Our headquarters are located just off of Rte 7 in Sunderland, Vermont.
