How to Get Hired

We asked Squaremouth, 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?

A great fit for Squaremouth’s culture is someone who can work autonomously, but is also willing to take feedback and work as part of a team. Squaremouth operates with complete company-wide transparency, so prospective employees must be comfortable receiving constructive criticism in an open environment. Great prospects will accept that criticism and use it to improve moving forward. At Squaremouth, employees can build their own jobs, and there is opportunity for rapid promotion. As a result, it’s important for a prospective employee to be highly motivated.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Prospective employees should be able to prove they are motivated and interested in the job. It’s important that they come in having done plenty of research about Squaremouth, and they should have a list of questions prepared - both about the company and the specific job. Collaboration and communication are crucial for success at Squaremouth, so candidates also need to showcase their ability to work independently and within a team.

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

Customer service is our number one priority at Squaremouth. As we grow, we will continue to bolster our multi-award winning customer service department, as well as build our 24-hour claims team.
