So, what are jobs like at Kirkwood? 1 - We're all about the good vibes and we're super untraditional when it comes to a lot of things. For one, it's the opposite of quiet in our office. We've got music playing (sometimes loudly!) and we have an open floor plan. No cubicles! We encourage our team to be up on their feet interacting with each other. We're an unusually energetic bunch. 2 - Micro-management is not in our game plan at Kirkwood. We believe in empowering our team members to think and act for themselves. We give them the tools and support they need to be confident and successful -- and then we let them rock it out! 3 - We believe in giving credit where credit's due -- whether that comes in the form of bonuses, promotions, or high fives. Nothing is worse than having your hard work be overlooked -- which is why we believe in rewarding (and noticing!) when people do a great job. 4 - Speaking of which, Kirkwood has a strict policy of never hiring an individual directly into a management position. Instead, we want our executive staff to learn our business from the ground up, and then get promoted once they earn it. We believe in leadership by example -- and that the way to create that kind of dynamic is to ensure that our managers have walked in the shoes of the people they coach.
