Our mission and values:

Commitment to equity:
We have taken a good hard look at our current and past staff, and recognize a lack of racial diversity in our team, and that is out of alignment with out values. We are working to correct this, and will be reserving space in our interview schedule for BIPOC, Disabled, Queer, and Trans applicants.
We have a physically accessible space with no stairs. Buses # 25, 30, and 50 stop right beside our parking lot, and the Country Club bus exchange is a short walk away. We are working to remove the barriers that may have prevented people from applying in the past. For our reception team, this includes industry related experience requirements. We believe that your lived experiences, and your time spent in other industries has value.

We believe that wage transparency builds trust and the confidence that one’s efforts will be valued accordingly. Proven success on the job is more important to us than a strong resume.
