We before me.
Work to be most effective in the shortest amount of time.
At RealSelf we believe in extending the life-changing power of confidence to people across the globe. To support that belief, we support and bring attention to global and local needs. For us, giving back is not something that happens just once a year. It’s at the core of who we are.
We want to make a real impact on global access to necessary reconstructive surgery and medical treatments. Worldwide, more than five billion people lack the ability to get the basic surgical care they need, leaving them living with reparable birth defects, burns, or other injuries. RealSelf funded surgical trips to India and Vietnam, and in 2016 we launched the RealSelf Fellowship program.
The RealSelf Fellowship program provides financial support to doctors who donate their time to provide care and training to underserved communities around the world.
I have been working at RealSelf full-time
Over the many years I've been here, I could go on forever on the pros in working at RealSelf.
What I want to call out is the investment we make in our people.
For the last few years, we continue to raise the bar in what employees are offered in training and support.
Aside from our awesome team and company events that contribute to an incredible culture & reinforce our strong core values, we are also offered training & support in a variety of personal & professional topics:
Self Defense Classes
Improv Class - To help increase communication both in sales calls & cross functional collaboration
Mindfullness - Teaching what it means and how to incorporate
Financial Planning support - What is it and where do we start? (outside of 401k)
Volunteering - We do something almost quarterly to help both locally & globally
Yoga - we used to offer yoga in house weekly, though I don't think we do anymore?
Health coach - On top of our health fair, we've had coaches come in to teach us about health & fitness.
We even had Spa day where you could sign up for a massage, facial, or manicure.
Leadership Training: Managers are offered multiple courses in leadership best practices.
Public Speaking - We had a course on relieving anxiety when speaking in groups (available to anyone in the company, these aren't just offered to sales)
This is just to name a few, but I couldn't be happier to see this investment in people on all levels, on all teams.
At the rate we're growing I no longer know everyone's name, let alone what everyone does. The good news is, we hire smart people and building big teams to support our aggressive initiatives!
Advice to Management
Don't ever stop investing in people.
I am so proud to work here and can't tell you how valuable the training has been in my growth. Thank you!
I applied online. I interviewed at RealSelf (Seattle, WA) in February 2017.
Applied online, 2 days after got a recruiter email, then she emailed me a case study to be finished within 5 days after I opened it. After I submitted it, I was notified that I passed the round and could speak with an analyst in the team. After the phone call we scheduled an onsite interview two weeks later.
Since I was not a local candidate, Realself generously covered all my airfare, food, transportation and hotel to fly me in and interview me. The interview was a full afternoon including 5 interviews with 5 different people. After all the interviews, my recruiter came in and introduced the benefits (which are pretty decent). 3 business days later I got the email of interview result.
Overall, Realself interview process is my favorite among all my other interviews. Recruiter professionalism is a top-notch. (God I wish more companies could hire recruiters like Realself!) Interviewers were so friendly and welcoming that it makes my other interviews with other companies a bit harsh (not blaming Realself here). They even prepared a goodie bag for interviewees including a tumbler, a notebook, peppermint ,a Starbucks gift card and a donation to charity in the name of the candidate!
