When we asked our employees this question, the answer was unanimous: the people make Retail Ready a great place to come to every day. The company has a deep sense of community and mutual respect. But there’s a lot of other stuff beyond that – from regular staff socials to constant learning opportunities, the great workspaces to the feeling that your work makes a difference – that makes it a uniquely satisfying place to spend your days.
From the first day on the job, you’re assigned meaningful projects that make a direct contribution to the company’s goals – and are a tremendous hands-on learning opportunity. And our decentralized structure means you can regularly communicate with people at all levels. Everyone here is welcoming and willing to help; it’s up to you to come with the right attitude and the desire to learn.
Plus, for new grads, Retail Ready is the perfect place to grow. Because we are a relatively small operation, our team members get significant responsibility and accountability within their positions. If you show initiative and a willingness to learn, there’s plenty of room to advance into leadership roles.
Our core values – integrity, respect, accountability, collaboration and a laser focus on our clients – are part of everything we do. The people who work with us embody those values, making Retail Ready a place where you feel good about what you do every day. But there’s nothing stuffy or old school about the atmosphere here. It’s fun! We’re a diverse team of smart, driven people who share wonderful sense of camaraderie focused around our passion for food – it’s dynamic, energetic, and (we guarantee) NEVER boring.
Each day brings something different – it’s what we all love about the work. Your day will involve working on multiple projects from different parts of the business. You’ll have plenty of autonomy – we’re big on giving one person control over a project from start to finish.
A typical day starts as soon as our customers open their doors, and ends when you’ve crossed the last item off your list. While RRFI has standard working hours, we are a service-driven business. And because what we do crosses borders and time zones, it’s not always 9 to 5, and sometimes we work unconventional hours to get the job done. The meat industry is a fast-paced market – with prices and product availability changing by the minute.
Although having a background in the meat industry is an asset, it isn’t a deal-breaker. We’re looking for innovative thinkers with a willingness to learn! And don’t worry, our onboarding program and our role-specific training programs will provide you with all the info you need to navigate a new field.
Retail Ready a customer-focused business in an industry that revolves around the freshness and availability of raw product. Just as our customers rely on our immediate service and just-in-time delivery, we rely on our team to respond accordingly. It moves quickly and is very competitive, so we’re looking for people who are energized by the dynamic nature of the business.
You’ll work hard, but you’ll also be 100% supported by your team and your leaders. You’ll be trained on an ongoing basis through our bi-monthly speaker series, and monthly off-sites will help you get to know your team better.
