As part of the job, every Method team member takes a turn manning the reception desk—and does so with a co-worker he or she wouldn’t normally work with. By spending the day answering phones and welcoming guests alongside a new friend, Method employees build inter-department relationships, strengthen collaborative skills, and see the business from a different perspective.
Weird People Wanted
A company founded on doing business differently, Method seeks team members who embrace their unorthodox and creative sides. During the interview process, all potential employees complete a homework assignment. The last question is always “How will you keep Method weird?” An important tradition, the off-beat gauntlet helps Method continue to find employees who are comfortable in their own skins and can help propel its mission forward.
“We are one living, breathing organism. It’s extremely important to be a flexible and dynamic person. You need that ability to step outside your expertise and understand different points of views so you can really build a better solution.”
