Here is the first in our new blog series, “Meeting Maxons!” We are going to post short interviews with our staff so everyone can hear first hand how it is to work at Maxons!
Our first Volunteer for the series was Ruta our Marketing Manager.
Q. How long been with Maxons?
A. 6 years (5.8 years)
Q. Do you remember what your impressions were of the company after being here for about a month?
A. I liked it – at the time I was part of a growth surge. We had just hired a few people and had a lot of new people all at once. Eye of the storm had just changed – the company was growing and trying new things.
Q. What was the first thing you had to learn when joining the team?
A. Goldmine (our CRM). I also had to spend time on industry terms – differences between Public Adjusters and Independent Adjusters, or Brokers versus Agents. Had to learn our verticals.
Q. What is the most important thing you have learned since you have been here?
A. Planning and process. The MAP training has been great, have gotten us focused on working a lot with timelines, which makes us forward thinking. We are always asking what we do next. Never had that before.
Q. Why do you have a passion for this industry?
A. I didn’t know anything about it when I started. And first few days was freaked out about suffering a damage in my home!
But it is never the same here – no jobs are the same – we find ways to solve the unsolvable. We end up in a lot of buildings in the city that we would otherwise never be in.
Q. Which company core value speaks to you the most – and why?
A. I feel like the biggest corn ball for saying all of them.
I am going to go with Enjoyment. You can see it in our events. In the faces of happy clients. You simply can’t escape it.
Q. What is your favorite Maxons story?
A. I had been here a week and went to a social media training and another student in the class knew us, we had worked for him and he loved us! I didn’t know much about what we did yet – but to see his reaction was amazing! I could really see we made a difference for people!
