Becoming a Solarian
At Solarity, we know that the right mix of people can inspire each other. We take a little extra time to find not only the most qualified person for the job, but also an excellent cultural fit. Building that dynamic is part science, part art.
Screening and Selection
Success begins with the right person in the right position.
That’s why our screening and selection processes are more in depth than most applicants are used to. But don’t worry—we’ll walk you through each step.
Note: During the application process, please remember to check your email regularly so you don’t miss any communication from us. You will be continually updated on the status of the selection process.
Submit your résumé and respond to basic qualifying questions.
We may ask you to complete an application detailing your employment history, education, and references. Our online application makes this part easy.
Our team will evaluate your skill sets and experience to ensure the position’s requirements are met.
Qualified candidates will be asked for permission to review his or her credit history. This helps us hire employees who value financial responsibility.
You may be asked to complete an assessment specific to the position for which you’re applying. This assessment helps us understand your personality and cognitive strengths, to ensure a good fit for the role.
A hiring manager may invite you to participate in a phone or video interview, followed by an in-person interview. These interviews are designed to assess your technical expertise and cultural fit.
If both sides feel this is a good match, we will ask you to arrange interviews with three references from your former supervisors. In addition, we will conduct a criminal background check.
We’ll deliver an offer of employment to the most qualified and best-fit candidate.
The method behind the madness
Solarity uses Topgrading® concepts to screen and select applicants. Topgrading is a proven hiring method used by some of the world’s most successful companies, from multinational corporations to small businesses. It helps us identify “right fit” candidates who have the best combination of skills and traits for the job.
Training and ongoing learning
Learning is an important part of our culture. From day one, we invest heavily in new employees with onboarding that covers everything from industry regulations to cultural values and communication skills. All employees complete training through two programs, Creating Member Loyalty (CML) from CUNA and The Member Advantage (TMA) from Integrity Solutions.
But we don’t stop there. We support every employee with ongoing training in their field to ensure they have the technical skills they need to be successful. Technical training may vary from business service support training, new software training and providing up to date tools to do your job well.
We also value the development of our leaders. We support them with ongoing training regarding coaching techniques, effective leadership, and other topics relevant to their role. We are also a studious lot, often sharing and receiving reading materials to support our continued growth.
When it comes down to it, we value our employees and spend the time to build training programs that provide extraordinary experiences every day.
