Room & Board is a retailer of classic contemporary American-made home furniture and accessories with 14 flagship stores and delivery centers throughout the United States as well as a robust website. Our passion is to help customers create homes they love.
How to Get Hired
We asked Room & Board 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?
We believe that work should have meaning and strive to hire individuals that are passionate about finding their life’s work and take personal accountability for their success. Successful Room & Board staff members are natural relationship builders and enjoy collaborating and supporting the success of others.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We encourage candidates to be genuine in their approach to our selection process. Our online application asks questions about collaboration, respect and loving what you do. We hope candidates answer these questions in a thoughtful manner.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Room & Board Design Associates and Delivery Associates find great satisfaction building relationships with our customers and helping them create homes they love.
It can be challenging to find Delivery Associates to fill this unique role. Room & Board Delivery Associates are athletic, work at an energized pace and have a great deal of stamina. They are also effective communicators and innovative problem solvers that are trusted to work independently with their delivery partner and in collaboration with their delivery peers and retail team.
In 2017 we hope to open additional stores and delivery centers. Our Portland, Oregon location is slated to open in early 2017. So we are looking for talented leaders and retail and delivery professionals for this new location.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
We encourage candidates to visit our careers site (www.roomandboard.com/careers) to learn more about our open roles, our philosophies and what it is like to work at Room & Board. We also invite candidates to visit a Room & Board store; there is nothing like meeting us in person and experiencing our showroom environment and product first-hand.
