Chexology’s culture isn’t carved in stone; it grows organically from each team member's character. Together, we make up a close-knit company of individuals from all walks of life. One of those team members is Kendra Anthony!
Kendra, what is your role in the company? What types of challenges are you solving?
I am the Talent Lead. Some of the challenges I am trying to solve are continuing to build on the fantastic culture our Founder & CEO has created, scaling our recruiting and onboarding processes, and creating programs that encourage coaching feedback, development, and career progression tracks for current and future employees.
What drew you to Chexology?
The team culture. I knew from the first conversation that this was a team I wanted to be a part of and help build.
What advice do you have for prospective Chexology candidates?
Be yourself. We aren’t looking for cookie-cutter interview answers, we are looking for what makes you, you! We want to hear your stories. We want you to be able to visualize how you will fit into the role and also how you will interact with the team. Before each interview, ask yourself:
What about Chexology? And this position excites me?
Where do I see myself contributing the most in this role?
What do I bring to the table that other candidates don't?
Those answers will provide invaluable responses to some of our most challenging questions.
What’s one of your favorite companies Chexology partners with and why?
Museum of Modern Art in New York. So much art! And so many coats, strollers, and backpacks go through that lobby! Their custom conveyor system that pairs with our iOS app is pretty cool.
What’s a piece of advice that’s worth sharing?
Job requirements are negotiable is one of the best job application tips I’ve ever learned. I wish I could go back and tell my seventeen-year-old self this. I didn’t apply for many jobs because I did not have many of the requirements because of my lack of experience. However, this is still helpful knowledge currently because this allows everyone not to set limits. If you feel confident, you have the skills and abilities to do the job or learn them, apply for it! Training is for learning.
