We view people who work on Wings Over’s mission as teammates who will someday become alumni. The time people spend with us is treated more like a tour of duty that’s mutually aligned rather than a lifelong commitment.
We typically work from 10am-7pm in the office, Monday - Friday. Saturdays and Sundays and usually considered days off; however, we oftentimes need to be flexible with weekends to accommodate tasks. We ask that you remain accessible even on weekends or evenings if needed. Sundays are typically sanctuary days but recommend that a portion of the day be used to wrap up anything that may have slipped during the week, or plan for the upcoming week.
We have a mutual 1:1s we execute weekly. This is your time. There will be an outline to make sure you are receiving the support and feedback that you need. We will also focus on career development and mutual feedback.
