Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them. - Albert Einstein What do you like to do in your free time? Louisville has an incredible restaurant and craft beer scene so you can usually find me there! In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? This sounds so cliché but I genuinely have fun at work, I'm challenged every day and I love my coworkers! In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? Wow, there isn’t enough room here! On a regular basis we have recognition parades around our campus and include employee’s children from our onsite daycare. They are so cute and we have a ton of fun with noisemakers and music. Also, regular recognition is part of our culture every day. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? We are all high achievers who don't take ourselves too seriously and are passionate about the work we do.
