How to Get Hired
We asked Reynolds American 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?
Our employees say they are drawn to working at RAI and its companies because of the iconic brands and next generation products, but they stay for the visionary, principled and passionate people they get to work with every day. We are excited to speak with candidates who are eager to work in a fun, collaborative and caring environment where their ideas will make a real difference in the company of good people who are as original as them.
Our core values — principled, passionate, dynamic and creative – are the essence of who we are and how we operate as a company. We are always seeking diverse, bold thinkers who are committed to doing the right thing, are future-focused, desire to create a positive impact, and are motivated by changing the game through innovation.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Our interview panel process is centralized around our six Leadership Dimensions — Strategy Development, Driving Execution, Leading Change, Talent Development, Influencing and Credibility. These dimensions are critical attributes to achieving our business goals and provide the framework and guidance employees need to grow based on their performance, individual talents and professional goals. Prospective employees must share tangible examples of experiences that demonstrate these behaviors in their careers or personal lives. When candidates exhibit the characteristics defined by our Leadership Dimensions, we know they will have a successful, long-term career where they feel challenged, engaged and empowered professionally.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Because we are transforming our industry, we are always seeking Research & Development candidates who have a background in STEM education and work experience. Our RAI Innovations team will be focused on eCommerce and digital talent, as well as product innovation marketing candidates who are passionate about understanding consumer preferences and converting those preferences into product concepts, technical product specifications, innovations, and/or product improvements.
Trade Marketing Services is essential to achieving our vision; they are the trailblazers who drive the sale, development and execution of strategic business plans and marketing programs. We will be hiring Territory Managers who are hungry for responsibility, accountability and a chance to really make an impact!
Finally, the Operations function will continue to hire production associates at all levels to support product manufacturing in our facilities in North Carolina and Tennessee.
