Perks and Programs

We asked Big Ass Solutions to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Big Ass Bonus: Big Ass Solutions offers a lucrative bonus program for all employees. The amount awarded to each employee annually is based on a number of factors including tenure and performance.
  • Big Ass Fun: Big Ass Solutions has two full-time events coordinators who organize everything from the traditional company picnic and sports leagues to canoeing, paintball and hot yoga classes.
  • Fanny Chips: In honor of our company mascot, Fanny the Donkey, Big Ass Solutions offers each employee “Fanny Chips” to trade for things like massages, gift cards and extra time off.
  • Big Ass Lunch: The Big Ass Solutions Cantina offers subsidized healthy, delicious lunches—employees pay about $5, tops, for a big plate of lunch (plus a drink!) Monday through Thursday.  Lunch is catered by a different local restaurant every Friday.
  • Big Ass Health: Big Ass Solutions offers a free on-site health clinic where our APRN holds free open office hours. (She’s a hypochondriac’s dream.) But in all seriousness, she’s very helpful to our employees, whether they’ve got the sniffles, allergies or chronic illnesses. We’d probably fall completely apart without her. We also offer free flu shots, biometric screenings, smoking cessation programs, health club discounts and subsidized healthy lunch options.

    How to Get Hired

    We asked Big Ass Solutions for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

    What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

    They show engagement. Engaged employees aren’t just involved with their jobs. They’re excited to know about the different parts and pieces of the company. Not only do the most engaged employees get involved with projects outside of their job descriptions, they feel like it is their duty to do so.  They demonstrate exceptional performance. A great employee will work each day to move your company forward, and in the process, grow his or her own career. From the person packaging the bolts to the person opening international offices, the employees who strive for excellence are the ones we consider first for promotions. They have a positive attitude. Positivity is infectious, and employees who show authentic enthusiasm about their work make the workday fun and rewarding. We all want to work with people we like.  

    What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

    We pride ourselves on being contrarian, so think about what other people have done — and don’t do that! As you can imagine, we receive a slew of “attention getters” all the time, but the most memorable and impressive way to get our attention is through your work.  We want people who are passionate about the growth of the company and who can deliver results. Come in and ask (intelligent) questions. Tell us why you think you'll be a great fit. Be yourself.  

    Are there any unusual or especially rigorous steps of your hiring process that candidates should be aware of?

    For us, It’s not enough to simply submit a resume and cross your fingers. For some positions, we are going to ask you to provide us with a portfolio or some other samples of your work. In other cases, we will give you a project to complete or invite you in to meet with the team and see how you function in our day-to-day. We also screen most candidates through a video interview before the in-person interview. 

    Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

    Our focus is always on talent. More than just seeking to fill a specific role, we place strong emphasis on finding people that fit our culture, are curious, innovative and contrarian by nature.

    What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
