💎Would you prefer a hybrid or remote job? Pax8 lets you make the decision! Watch the video to the end to know more about the company and your options!
📼 For either a hybrid or a remote job, at Pax8 the work schedule is very flexible. Myles Pegues, Talent Acquisition Partner at Pax8, shares some tips and pointers that are going to help you be successful when interviewing with them for your next job.
📼 Hybrid or remote? Your job at Pax8 will adapt to your comfort level. The company is okay with either and they think they will get the best results from the person that's going to be comfortable with their work format. So, pick which one you prefer. Some people prefer to be remote five days a week and that is completely fine. Are they going to be comfortable with where they're at, what they're doing? Would they be comfortable coming in? If not, Pax8 doesn’t want to put you in a situation where you feel like you have to go to the office.
📼Whether it’s for a hybrid or remote job, interview processes at Pax8 are usually pretty brief. The company tries to keep it within two weeks. So they usually use a four-stage format that's going to be a phone screen, an interview with the manager, peer, or stakeholder, and then the VP interview portion. Now, that is customizable, but usually, Pax8 tries to be sensitive to what the candidate's experience is like.
Hybrid or remote job in Pax8? - Core Values Are The Same
Pax8 core values are to innovate, elevate, celebrate, and advocate. The company has an amazing culture and that's not by happenstance. It’s by recruiting great people and having moral values that create a great community for anybody who goes in and anybody who interacts with them. So just having that great moral compass is going to allow you to fit in with what the company does!

💎 What is diversity, equity, and inclusion? Learning to identify these can help you decide for yourself if this company is the right fit for you, personally, and professionally. Watch the video to the end to learn how to really know if a company values diversity, equality, and inclusion.
📼 How can I find an organization that truly values diversity, equity, and inclusion? Here are some tips that can empower you to have this type of conversations and help you find out a company’s real values. You'll hear from Gráinne Sherlock, sales director, Anesha McCormick, senior product manager, and Den Hudson, former principal consultant at Pluralsight, who share some key insights that they've learned throughout their careers.
📼 How to identify if a company values diversity, equity, and inclusion? Tip #1: Know who they are. Find out what specific goals or objectives a company has in place to drive diversity, equity, and inclusion. Your goal here is to better understand where a company is at right now and what the workplace might look like a few years down the road. There are other questions that you can also ask to glean more, such as, what initiatives have they implemented to meet their goals? What is their long-term vision? How do you and other team members contribute and get involved in the work? What are their success metrics? All in all, this will not only help you understand if a company is truly valuing diversity, equity, and inclusion but it'll let you know who they are.
📼 Talking diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. Tip #2: Speak your truth. Den has always believed that speaking your truth is a really powerful tool within any organization. Look for employee resource groups or employee councils from within. Look to see where sponsorships are available: this means, senior sponsors within the organization who can advocate for you and your groups. As Den puts it, diversity from within brings true color to the organization.
Sharing Stories About Diversity, Equity & Inclusion - Tip #3: Be Vulnerable
Being vulnerable can mean different things to different people. In Gráinne's opinion, being vulnerable is sharing a story or sharing a situation that's close to your heart. Maybe you felt like the only person who was X or Y within a company, and that made you feel can truly open a conversation with the person you're speaking with. If a company you're speaking with is very early in its journey, you may be there to help spearhead those opportunities. So your story can not only just inspire, but it can also feel and drive ERGs within companies.
