How to Get Hired
We asked Maxons Restorations, Inc. 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?
It is important to us that anyone we bring on is a fit for our environment! We can teach skills and job function, we can't teach the right attitude! We really do look at how someone stacks up against our company values of Responsibility, Enjoyment, Sincerity, Tenacity, Optimism, Results, Energy, Improvement, and Teamwork. They can have the best skill set in the world, but if they aren't going to be an active part of our team and involved in how we all work together they are not for us.
As we can have a high stress environment during wide spread disasters we also look at emotional intelligence in hiring. We ask a lot of questions with stressful scenarios, and their experience with pressure. We need to stay a cohesive and supportive team during stressful periods, so we need someone who can handle that with a cool, calm head.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective employees can grab our intention by referencing our values and mission - they are very real to us and someone who feels strongly about them tends to be a good match for us. Also anyone with restoration experience is certainly someone who catches out attention! It is a niche industry and people with the knowledge are hard to come by!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
The coming year will have a focus on hiring experienced sales people. We have been lucky to have two professional sales people come on board in April and May, but there is always room for someone who can bring a book of business and an understanding of the industry. And if we are successful in growing out outside salesforce, we will also need to increase our sales support team!
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Candidates should certainly take a look at our website for open positions. And checking us out on Glassdoor.com, Linkedin and our Blog will also give them an eye into our culture. If someone is looking for a very corporate environment - they'll learn pretty quick we aren't the right match for them by checking out our social media! But if a candidate likes developing strong bonds with coworkers, working hard for our customers and clients, and doing all that with a smile - then they'll fit right in!
