What is Spreetail’s work from home policy?
On March 16th, our office team members in Austin, Omaha, and Lincoln made the transition to working from home. We’ve developed a Covid-19 team who continues to monitor regulations in each city we operate in and will be providing a transition plan when it is safe to move team members back to our offices. If you’re new to working from home, check out our tips and tricks here to make a smooth transition.
What does the interview process look like?
Currently to keep our team as well as candidates safe, every stage of our interview process is conducted through video.Your recruiter will send you the video links for every stage and will schedule a test call before the final interview. It’s important we give you time to meet with the team you’ll be interacting with the most, so additional virtual coffees may be scheduled for you and your future manager. Since we usually show candidates our offices during the interview process, we encourage you to check out this video for a virtual tour of our Lincoln office or this video to see what you can expect in our Omaha office.
If I join the team, how does onboarding work?
We continue to onboard new hires with start classes occurring once a month. Our IT team ships equipment to new hires prior to starting, ensuring they have the right tools to be successful in their roles. As a new hire, you’ll work with our Onboarding Specialists who developed a three-day virtual curriculum before jumping into role specific training. This team reaches out one week in advance with the schedule and how to connect. You can read more about a new hire’s virtual onboarding experience here.
How is Spreetail supporting team members during this time?
Building relationships is an important part of our culture, so additional programming has been implemented to retain this focus. We’ve caught up with coworkers via weekly events such as virtual yoga, quiz bowl, Spreetail Storytime, and coffee connects. To learn more about how we are overcoming social distancing hurdles, check out how we are working to overcome them here.
How is Spreetail supporting the community?
We value the non-profits we partner with as well as local businesses in the locations we operate which is why we launched VirtualVolunteer Week and Pick Your Local Perk. These programs have empowered employees to build awareness and support local organizations while staying safe. Read more about Virtual Volunteer Week and how you can help here.
How are fulfillment team members staying safe during this time?
With increased traffic to online marketplaces, the fulfillment team has stayed busy ensuring our customers have access to products they need during this time. Our team members in the fulfillment centers are practicing social distancing and are provided gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, along with cleaning crews sanitizing the facility daily.The teams enjoy a weekly lunch on us, and in order to help keep their families busy during this time we’ve shipped kids kits complete with arts and crafts activities.
