At Oak Island Creative, people aren’t just employees—they’re family. No matter where one’s position falls in the organizational hierarchy, everyone is treated like part of the same family. This manifests in an environment of support—if a team member needs help, no effort is spared to provide it. It’s precisely due to this family-oriented attitude that many employees have stayed with the company for decades.
Employees often travel between teams across the country to turn the wildest ideas into reality. One moment, a team may be discussing how to make a scary rabies-infested cat installment for a haunted house, and the next they may be collaborating on bringing a high-end retail experience to life. It’s easy to form lasting, interesting bonds in such a creative environment.
“The culture here very much revolves around family. We take care of each other, watch out for each other, and make sure everyone has what they need to do their job—and do it well. The sense of collaboration is prevalent regardless of a person’s specific job.”
Director Human Resources
“Our direct supervisors are completely understanding—you can run to them about anything. No one takes their job so seriously that they can’t see when you’re having an issue and need help resolving it. There’s just a whole lot of compassion.”
