Drive Shack Raleigh Now Hiring For 400 Positions
RALEIGH, NC –
Sports entertainment company, Drive Shack will begin hiring for its new Raleigh venue, which is scheduled to open later this summer. The company is looking to fill more than 400 positions. To do so, Drive Shack will be hosting a series of unique hiring events starting July 1 and continuing throughout the month. Interested applicants can sign up for the events at www.driveshack.com/careers.
"We're excited to open in Raleigh and to be adding 400 more members to the Drive Shack family," said Drive Shack CEO, Ken May. "Our goal is to provide every guest who comes to Drive Shack with a fun and memorable experience, and our team is essential in achieving this. They're what makes Drive Shack special."
As a social and gaming entertainment venue, fun is a fundamental part of Drive Shack's culture and is reflected in the company’s hiring process. A one-of-a-kind and innovative interview method, Drive Shack hosts a series of hiring events that kick off with interactive games that are inspired by or include popular ones like Mad Libs and Connect Four. There's also a Lego themed activity, a relay challenge in which applicants split into teams and race to complete several tasks, and investigative play where applicants must use clues to solve various situations.
"We've developed an interview process that will not only help us get the talent we need, but ensure we place them in the right role," adds May.
Not all just fun and games, each experience serves a purpose and is designed to help promote a diverse workforce and objectively gauge an individuals’ natural skill set. Games are aligned with Drive Shack positions and help guide the recruitment team in helping place candidates in the roles best suited for them. An applicant can come in for one role and through the games, Drive Shack’s team may identify skills that strongly support another position and offer alternate job options to the candidate. After the games portion of the interview process is completed each applicant has a one-on-one meeting with a Drive Shack manager.
Hiring events will take place throughout the month of July at Drive Shack Raleigh, located at 6901 Play Golf Way, Raleigh, NC 27607.
