NBK9 is a very different place to work. We have a team that supports each other, management that cares and is willing to listen, a chance to make a real difference - I actually enjoy going to work.
Support from management
I have found it refreshing that the management is actually involved not only in setting goals for me, but following through to make sure I am where I need to be or offer guidance if I need more help.
We are a team, through and through. We support each other and you will never hear the phrase "well that's not my job" here. We bring our best selves to each other when we are at work.
Freedom to work independently
While some task require collaboration, most duties are done independently - each team member trusted to do their part.
As a team, communication is so important. We have weekly meetings just so that everyone is on the same page, to talk about anything that may be coming up or to problem solve if needed. Management is easy to talk to and approachable.
All employees are treated with equal respect and hold positions within the company based on their job knowledge and skills not on age or gender.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Age is not a factor. All employees, younger or older, are treated equally.
There are advancement opportunities for every position here. Advancement is based on individuals proving themselves. Hard work does not go unnoticed.
Overall compensation for your work
I feel that I am fairly compensated for the duties that my position requires.
Office / Work Environment
The work environment is well-suited to not only the work that I am doing, but for the other employees as well. If an issue were to arise with the temperature, lighting, etc. it is handled right away.
There are multiple recycle bins placed throughout the facility. It really makes recycling convenient and easy.
From management to employees - we all understand the importance of a work-life balance. We work together as a team to take everyone's needs into consideration.
I agree with the way that NBK9 operates - from interacting with clients to the cleanliness of the facility. It's a nice change to actually be able to stand 100% behind the company that I'm working for.
Employees jobs are stable as long as polices and procedures are followed appropriately.
Since NBK9 is a dog facility, all employees learn the specific safety protocol in regards to the type of work that we do here.
While I have my typical duties each day, I also am trusted to work independently not only on my usual tasks but on assigned projects as well. I am given the opportunity to learn new things often.
Inclusive / Diverse
Everyone is encouraged to speak up with any ideas, concerns or questions that they may have regarding their duties or anything else in the company. The management is open to have conversations and address any issues.
What I like about the company
Prior to working at NBK9 I had done what most people do: job hop. After the birth of my son I decided that it was time for a change - I wanted more from a job than just a paycheck. I was searching for a job where I felt like I mattered and wasn't just a "warm body" filling a position. At NBK9 I have found my niche in a job that allows me to be a part of a team and to expand on things that really interest me. My hard work pays off here and doesn't go unnoticed like at previous jobs I have held. Being able to talk openly about concerns or ideas that I have with the management has also been eye-opening compared to my previous experiences. I can honestly say that I enjoy what I do now and I am able to support my family happily - New Beginnings was everything that I was looking for and a little more.
