A Candidate's Experience of our Hiring Process

In May, 2018 we started a search for the Director of Sales. This was a new position for The Receptionist and we wanted to take our time to find the right person. We didn’t realize that it would take until December, 2018 to hire our final candidate. But- it did take that long, and it was worth it. We are excited to introduce you to Tom Foster.

Have you met our friend Tom?

On this Episode of The Check-In, you get to meet Tom. He was already on the move to Denver with his family when he started researching new positions. And when he found our job listing, he didn’t apply right away! Can you believe it? Instead of jumping to fill out the application, he did his homework, researching our company and product. That level of preparation was apparent to us during this process and is a big reason why he’s the person we hired.

Tom shares with us about how the hiring process went for him, how he felt about our simulations (role plays) and group interviews, and how he knew that The Receptionist was where he wanted to be. Now that he’s in the Director of Sales role (for about a month when we recorded the episode in January, 2019), it feels like he’s been here a lot longer: to him and the rest of the team.

Company culture is so important to everyone here and through the hiring process, as Tom learned more about our culture, the more he wanted to be a part of our team. We were able to learn that Tom would be a great fit for the position for our team and it’s no surprise that he integrated so smoothly.

We look forward to having Tom in the role and helping us continue to grow. And, if you have any interest in applying for a position here, this episode gives you an insider’s look into our hiring process.
