Now hiring: Crew Manager (HEN)

We hire awesome people. Are you one of them?

We’re a rock climbing gym looking for a Crew Manager at our Henderson, NV location. Climbing can change lives, on and off the walls.

Don’t send that resume just yet!

We don’t want your resume, we don’t want your cover letter, and we don’t want phone calls and emails!

Why? We at The Pad feel that the employment process is broken and we want to address these issues and hopefully inspire others to, as well.

Why is it broken?

  • Applicants are judged on their ability to make a fancy-looking document
  • Applicants are judged on their writing ability when that may not be a requirement of their position
  • Applicants are unfairly judged based on their employment history, success in describing it, and even by their own name and location.
  • Applicants are encouraged to go above and beyond, reaching out to HR and supervisors, and writing long essays, all of which is an emotional drain on everyone
  • Salary, benefits, time expectations, and even physical ability requirements are either omitted or over-inflated.

Our process eliminates this and is designed to test applicants in as little time as possible to see if they will be a good fit. Through our process, we are able to:

  • Educate you about the organization you are applying for so you know if it is a good fit or not for you.
  • Check for the level of attention to detail we want to see prior to hiring.
  • Check for level of readiness for the position
  • Show us your personality
  • Take a minimum of time and energy for our HR team AND you

Please note – if you send resumes, cover letters, etc without being asked, we will NOT review them.
