How to Get Hired
We asked Trek Bicycle Corporation 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’s no surprise that many of us at Trek love cycling, and finding candidates who are cycling enthusiast is a huge plus. However, the most important characteristics we look for center around our core values as a company. We focus our efforts in finding candidates who are high energy, positive people. In addition, we look for candidates who can demonstrate the motivation to get things done and are good at making decisions while maintaining the highest levels of customer services. These characteristics, along with having passion for what you do is what makes for a great fit at Trek.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
The thing that stands out the most when we’re looking for the right candidate is always energy. If we’ve had eight phone interviews with different people and each one has a similar experience level, the differentiator comes down to being able to feel that energy. Someone who isn’t giving it their all won’t thrive here. The person that is animated and articulates their passions is who we’re excited to keep talking to.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Trek Bicycle is looking to hire energectic, passionate individuals to join our growing retail base. Sales associates will have an incredible opportunity to enhance cycling in their community and get their foot in the door with a great company.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Interested candidates should check out Trek’s postings on Trekbikes.com, reach out to one of Trek’s recruiters via LinkedIn or find a Trek employee on a bike trail in their local community.
