Our Hiring process
Finding a new job is not fun and it can be confusing (and slow) for most of us. We want you to know our exact process, to be as transparent as possible as we both get to know (and hopefully like) each other.
Welcome to the hiring process! You’ve formally applied and someone will review your application and get back to you, regardless of the outcome.
You’ll connect with someone on a quick phone call, so we can get a better idea of your background and you can learn more about the role. We answer your questions and learn about you.
You’ll meet in person and present your thoughts on a small task (never more than 30 minutes) and let you show off some of your skills.
We get into the weeds and you leave with a full picture of what it’s like to work at The Royal Room. We sometimes even invite customers or partners to participate.
Our favorite part of the process where we make things official and welcome you to the team. You will understand all our perks, benefits and general life at The Royal Room. Let’s go!
