Maxons 2016 Summer Outing!

Perks and Programs

We asked Maxons Restorations, Inc. to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • 3:00 Fridays: From Memorial day to Labor day we close for business at 3pm on Fridays. This is typically our slower season and we take advantage of this to let our staff recharge with an early release.
  • Company Events: Every year we host 2 large company events, a summer outing and holiday party. We close down our offices and we all get together off site to celebrate our successes and enjoy time with one another! We get to see others we ordinarily don't interact with daily and have cemented strong bonds through these events. Through the year we also do many smaller celebrations with pot lucks, holiday lunches, birthday celebrations and milestone celebrations!
  • MVP Award: The Maxons Values Personified Award (MVP Award) is something developed by our Advisory team, a group of staff members who help Leadership with projects that work on the business. We give this award out quarterly, based on written nominations by staff members, to a teammate who lives our values. It is a great way to recognize people who make a difference for all of us day to day.
  • Culture Club: This group of staff members work on maintaining and improving our culture through a variety of programs. Some of the projects we are working on in 2017 include, Gratitude lunches, positive word clouds, an online platform for dream boards, weekly writing projects about our values, and in the past they have put together bonding events like scavenger hunts and relay races.
  • Flex Schedule: In 2016 we instituted 2 shifts for our administrative team, giving them the flexibility to work either a 7:30 - 4pm day or 8:30 - 5pm day. This benefit was a big hit as it actually eased commuting for a lot of our staff. Plus, as we are emergency based, someone is always on call at Maxons. By opening up our offices an hour earlier the on call staff gets a break first thing in the morning with handling calls for the whole company.
  • Charity Group: A team of staff members have worked hard to make sure we continue with charitable efforts through the year. We have done fundraising runs, our largest turnout was for the Stephen Stiller Tunnel to Towers run. We also stay late after our full staff meetings and make 200 - 300 sandwiches for a local soup kitchen. We have done coat and toy drives during the holidays. And we are always collecting for the Red Cross working to put donations towards local disasters. Not to mention supporting one another in our personal causes.
  • Max Star Awards: These are quarterly awards handed out during our full staff meetings to team members who have been the top performers for certain metrics. The awards have special names - some of them have even been renamed with a historical winner of the award! We celebrate all those who win these when they are handed out!
  • Staff Incentive Compensation Plan: As we have created stronger organizational, regional, departmental and individual goals over the years we have created a staff incentive compensation plan that looks at each role at Maxons and outlines how great performance can earn them extra income! It has also increased our teamwork as several of the bonus opportunities are based on group performance. We all enjoy the bonuses as well as the supportive and motivated environment we have fostered through this program.
  • PTO Buy Back Policy: Many of our staff members save a few days of PTO to use in the event they get sick near the end of the year, in the past if they didn't use these they just lost them as the year changed. We want to encourage our staff to use their PTO in full, but also understand the planning involved in saving a few days. We have instituted a buy back bonus that allows them to "sell" back up to 3 unused PTO days and they can earn a bonus for doing so.

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!
