Ryonet HQ has a vision that one day every workplace can be a tobacco free zone; inside and out. We are proud to say that 90% of our HQ team are now non-smokers - Go team!
We The People: Aww this is where we ROCK!
We use the Core Value Index (CVI) because knowing how we roll naturally means we are having more fun and getting more done. Our teams are building on strengths; Managers don’t nag us to work in our weaknesses (unless we want them to). How cool is that?
We will hire from the RyoNation, people we have gotten know and all humans are welcome. We simply want a common thread, and it starts with our values; are they yours too? If you already have these values and have the courage to speak up with respect, then you will feel the fit.
However, with that said, if you suck, are negative and moody, are too grumpy in the morning to say “hey”, just want to have friends and not get the work done, or you generally have highs and lows that make others not want to be around you, then this is not a good match. BUT it it’s only temporary for you, you CAN become part of the RyoNation, follow us and see what balance looks like. Then when you’re not so grumpy and unpredictable, maybe timing will be better. We LOVE our fan base!!
The interview process:
You will have plenty of time to learn us, as our process will be a very active 4-8 weeks, depending on schedules and tons of information gathered on your own, as well as through the process. Your meetings with us will be an hour or two with every department that affects your areas of responsibilities.
Our responsibility in this process is to be transparent and open to the questions you will ask and provide you with clear expectations of the role. We will not sugar-coat the position or paint a picture of our company that is not realistic. We are proud of our culture, know that it works, and want people who understand who we are.
Where you will be doing it:
At HQ, Vancouver, WA 4th Plain and NE 121st 98682 but see all of our locations
We work in an open environment which we call the bullpen. High desks, chairs we rarely sit in, computer screens and the tools we need that just make the experience better. Housed within the bullpen is our customer success team, our acquisition team, and our account management team.
We all have a phone headset and can hear other people talking, laughing, typing and talking across the room. The beauty of this is that we can instantly collaborate on issues that come up and are able to give our customers the best possible service while we have their attention. We are human, and the environment is as close to talking with a friend as we can make it..
The bullpen can be very distracting so it requires focus and concentration we all have our job to do. If you are prone to distractions then this may not be the place for you. However, now that we are splitting into a hunting and gathering team, many of us are to be out of the office at least one week a month.
Being out of the office usually means visiting shops within an assigned US territory, as each account manager is building a clientele. Out of the office could also mean being part of the many tradeshows that we show off at. We have great stuff and we have the best, most active and fun booth at all of the shows.
If you don’t like to travel or travel is difficult because of the spice of life you are in, then account managing is not for you. Also, we do not hand hold or babysit so all of this team are self-starters and organized, sort of like we are all our own small business. We support each other with a vast array of tools so success or failure is a choice not a destiny.
We work with wonderful people in and outside of work (for those who like that sort of thing). You see, Screen Printers are an incredible group of all features of life all belief systems and sometimes way to hardy a party life. But when work comes, we all want to show up. That’s the difference in being part of the RyoNation. Each and every one of us will continue to amaze, day in and day out.
On Leaving Whatever You're Doing Now:
Do not rush, chances are one of these scenarios may have been true for you: you were sick and tired, or someone called you on a bad day so you said “why not”, or you were part of a lay off and had to get a job fast, or you were told one thing in the interview then learned it was not what you thought. We invite you to choose Ryonet, because you took time to know us.
Become part of the RyoNation: (when we hire, we hire from our Fan Base)
