Getting a Job at Shuttle

September 9, 2016

Here at Shuttle Delivery, we get tons of questions from our users, like “What’s your favorite restaurant?” and “How many new neighborhoods will you guys provide coverage for this year?” and of course “Are you an app or are you actually a highly intelligent robot army of delivery ajjushis!?” But the question we get asked the most is, “How can I work for you?” Well first, we suggest you live in either the Itaewon Area or the Gangnam area of Seoul. Oh, and put in an application right here. Then, we suggest you read this list! It’s chocked full of pretty much everything you need to know in order to absolutely crush a highly coveted interview with Shuttle Delivery.

1. Dress Appropriately

Like most job interviews, first impressions are everything. If you walk into your interview dressed as a Sriracha Bottle, you’ve already taken the right step.

2. Be Ready For Anything

Working at Shuttle Delivery means being prepared for anything and everything. Can you handle the pressure cooker? Constantly looking over your shoulder for potential kimchi slaps just right around the corner! Can you perfectly stack a BLT under pressure, all while Kim Jong Un may or may not have his finger on the button...?Oh, also, you should probably bring a copy of your resume and have some follow up questions ready for us, blah, blah, blah.Bonus tip: You might enter a epic battle of Oregon Trail with Dear Leader, so freshen up your DOS skills.

3. Be On Time

We know this seems pretty obvious, but you should always show up at least 10 minutes before your scheduled interview. In fact, a recent study showed if you show up 17 minutes early, your chances of being hired go up by 33.7%. That study was conducted by a pizza school box… a pizza school box that’s always on time. We’ll let that sink in.

4. Provide Examples

While we think your Master’s Degree in Instagram is impressive, we want to get to know the real you.How many times have you went to costco just to get the pizza and nearly finished it all on the way home?Tell us about the time you were confident enough to order 3 sets of ttukbokki, 2 orders of Sundae and one order of mandoo at the good food stall; all while simultaneously figuring out the exact number of seconds needed to run and catch that next train on your subway stop!If your example happens to be winning at the eternal Russian Roulette sink game of Korean bathrooms, that’ll work too.

5. Bring Snacks

Look, interviews can be a long and strenuous process. With all the waiting, hand-shaking, nodding while smiling, eye-contacting, tie wearing, lipstick applying, and question answering,  it truly can be hard to focus. For you, and for us. Scientists (Somewhere) have proven that people think better on their feet when they are not thinking about other things like eating. Snacks can help! But be warned, this interview will end quite abruptly for you, if you don’t bring enough for us too !(P.S. we really like these!)

6. Be Well-Equipped

As we’ve mentioned, here at Shuttle Delivery you need to be prepared for anything. Will your interview be in the bowels of the Shuttle Compound with rocket ships taking off mere meters away from us? Or will it be in an air-conditioned room on a comfy couch on the 6th floor? Most likely it’ll be the latter, but you never know. Bring nunchucks (preferably boot-leg replicas from the Chuck Norris classic, “Side-Kicks”). Bring 1980’s replica papa smurf doll you found in a happy meal. Bring a paper mache soju bottle pinata.  Bring a poorly dubbed dvd copy of the 2007 Korean big budget production “D-Wars”. We could go on. But seriously bring tacos.Seriously, don’t forget the tacos!

7. Food Puns! Food Puns!! Food Puns!!!

If we didn’t mention this yet then let us make this abundantly clear! This job can be rough on a rainy, snowy, icy day outside delivering happiness to our wonderful and thankful customers and sometimes all you have in life is a good pun. We love our puns because it helps us switch gears a bit and refresh from the daily grind.  One day two of our co-founders spent entirely too much time to come up with the puns shown on our Shuttle Kitchen menu page.  Those puns don’t write themselves so get prepared to have a little fun and write some awesome puns!  Sorry, but no matter what anyone says, puns are important.Said no one ever! Puns are life.

8. Be Yourself

And by being yourself, we really mean be a cat. Seriously, are you a cat reading this article? Because if you are, welcome to Shuttle Delivery. We’re happy to have you on the team.So let’s recap:

  1. Dress Appropriately.
  2. Be Prepared.
  3. Be on Time.
  4. Provide Examples.
  5. Bring Snacks (important).
  6. Be well Equipped.
  7. Make a Pun.
  8. Ignore 1-7 and just be a cat
