The Coaches and Leadership team at Rio make every effort to advance their new (and current) employees. I've never heard of a company that has dozens of employees who have worked here over 2 decades. They treat every individual here with respect and understanding. If you want your voice to be heard, they will listen. I've implemented many changes in my department while holding my position for only 6 months. They truly help you grow. Tuition reimbursement, 401k match, bonuses, personal and business development opportunities
If you don't voice what constrains you, or what you'd like to change, it will not be recognized. Because of their lax "control" over employees, if you don't have self control, you may not be a good fit here. You make your own success based on your motivation.
Advice to Management
Employees who go above and beyond to keep things running smoothly have recently been verbally recognized and thanked, and that goes a long way.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rio Grande (Albuquerque, NM) in June 2015.
First they do a background check and run you through two antiquated assessments meant to figure out if you are trustworthy and if you will fit their open/no manager/team-based culture. I will give more details on the 2 quizzes below but maybe they were high-tech 15 years ago, it wants you to use at least IE6 I think so, yeah, low tech, old school. They were pretty disorganized, I got a call a few days after I submitted my resume online and was told I would be contacted by HR the next day. Several days went by, I called back and somehow there was an issue so the had to re-do things and I finally got an email to allow a background check and take the assessments online. After I took them I got an email saying they found a better candidate...which means I failed one or both of the assessments (see below) since the job was re-posted a couple weeks later. Then the next week they emailed me the exact same message. Seems like they are not very organized and like weird management styles and antiquated assessments.
