Company meeting = success!

Good evening,

We recently had a meeting with all of the employees, and we went out to BD’s Mongolian Grill to relax, get away, and spend a little time to talk about a lot of business “stuff”.

Watching these guys fry your food in front of you works up an appetite!

Watching these guys fry your food in front of you works up an appetite!

We were able to occupy the entire grill together and it was obvious that there was somewhat of a “silent” competition on who would eat the most hot chili oil, and therefore have the spiciest dish. I know that my mouth was on fire and my sinuses were clear!

It’s a chance for us to get together and get on the same page…of course that’s what a meeting is for. But it’s also a chance for us to get together and spend a little personal time outside of the office so we understand one another.

There’s no question that managing and working with people brings out the best and the worst. My father once told me that when he was a young up-and-coming Silicon Valley hopeful, he went to his boss for some advice. Being a new executive, he figured that his boss would have some insightful tips on how to manage employees. What he got was what most mangers think but never say: “if it were not for the people, my job would be easy.”

I believe that out of all of the management challenges, nothing comes close to managing people. It’s good to get together once in a while and do what’s right. Pay attention, listen, and get some stir fry.

The busy season is upon us, and we are heading into the Holidays this year with a smile. We will see you soon!

Take care, Ryan

The buildout continues at Mission Repair.

Hello everyone, I’ve been scrambling to keep up with these days that are flying by.

Last night my crew finished up adding another 13 new tech stations that we are staffing for as we speak. The room is ready – chairs, tools, phones and computers are on order. We will have this new capability rocking by the end of the month.

Doesn’t look like much now, but it will be a well-oiled machine in a few short weeks.

What does 13 new positions equate to? That’s a lot of mouths to feed 😉 It’s approximately 200 additional units per day down the production lines- that’s 200 more units received, pretested and barcoded, disassembled, reassembled with a new part, quality controlled, cleaned, packed and shipped. That’s a heck of a lot of iPhone fixes! It’s also 13 more jobs that we’re bringing to the Kansas City area and if you’ll looking, please apply here.

Speaking of “shipped” – we have FedEx stretched out to come at 7:00pm so we are able to ship later than ever before which means that we are sliding our average repair time up – and most of our units are getting repaired the same day that we get them which is over delivering on our 24 hour turnaround time and that’s a good thing!!!

So I can take a short break for now, clean up the saw dust and get back to business. You’ll be hearing more from me on the blog and I have an awesome coupon code coming tomorrow. Talk to you again on Wednesday!

Best, Ryan

Speaking of Saturdays. . .

We’ve been open 6 days a week at Mission Repair for about a year now. . .and it’s going very well for us. Additionally we’re open on Sundays starting a April.

Frankly I’ll be honest, I don’t spend many Saturdays at the office, however today is an exception. We are once again expanding our operation and adding another 5,000 square feet to our service lab soon, so I’m here getting the final plans in place and moving some of the unnecessary items out of our warehouse to make room for the construction.

The “unnecessary items” are mostly my personal items that I’ve stashed at the Mission Repair warehouse so I guess it’s time to clean house! I feel a giant garage sale in my future I’m sure!

We’re having a job fair in Olathe shortly. . .we are interviewing for 20 new employees to start in mid-April to fill this new tech room. It’s a great time to start with Mission Repair as we are in an enormous growth mode that sure to continue -so don’t delay. If you’re looking to join an amazing team, send your resume to “jobs@missionrepair.com” for consideration!

Best, Ryan
