Location: Charlotte, North Carolina
Number of Employees: 463
Digs: Headquarters is 120,000 square feet of cubes, offices, and warehouse space. Conference rooms are named after bodybuilding legends such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno and feature floor-to-ceiling graphics of them. Of course, there’s also a 3,000-square-foot gym that is fully-loaded: strength-training equipment, cardio-equipment, TRX training options, and on and on.
Culture: As you can imagine, there are a lot of fitness freaks who work here, which makes workdays a fun, energy-filled event. In between meetings or face-time with the computer, employees hit up the gym or take a few laps around the parking lot (painted with mile markers) to run out the stress. And although teamwork is valued, so too is a little friendly competition: the company has various fitness challenges throughout the year to both inspire healthy living and create a positive environment.
Sweet Perks: Employees get occasional free tickets to NFL Football and NBA Basketball games and steep discounts for all the products Europa sells.
Now Hiring: Account consultant, copywriter, sales representatives, Web designer, and warehouse associates, among other positions
