Education / Training
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?
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 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 hire from the RyoNation, people we have gotten to 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. 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.
At HQ Vancouver, WA - 4th Plain and NE 121st, 98682 but see all of our locations
Currently there are 2 of us and we have 2 offices separated by a split door. This role will be a 3rd person to balance the team so we will make room in our current space. You will not have your own office, people walk unannounced all day long, interruptions are the norm and sarcasm is our friend. Our classroom at HQ is a huge loft, overlooking our warehouse space and houses some of our presses, including the RoqYou automatic press as well as our Riley Hopkins line and a DIY press.
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)
So… if you think it’s time to start looking for a new gig, start getting to know Ryonet and enjoy the process, have some fun! We do not accept resumes as your intro, because you are not your resume. Attend one of our Q&A’s, get comfortable, there are usually 5-10 fans there and 1 or 2 Ryonet people; you ask the questions. We want to fascinate you and be fascinated by you, then we invite you to join us in the fun we have. Come see how we work and how we play.
Just click here if you want to be invited to the next Q&A. Include your name, phone number and email address so we can send you an email.
Check us out! Grab a beer or soda, watch our videos on youtube, and get to know us first. You will laugh a lot, but if you don’t, maybe you’re not a fit!
At Ryonet we strive:
· To work by the Ryonet set of values
· Address conflict head on
· Stop gossip before it becomes destructive
· Minimize the whining
We are leaders, we respect our management and the strengths in others, and we want to stop interviewing anyone who isn’t sure they want to be here. Ask yourself R U Crazy Enough for the RyoNation!
