We think that all work and no play makes for a dull Snagger, and since we're working so hard to make dreams come true, we try to find ample opportunity to play. Our monthly happy hours and culture events allow us to build friendships and break down the barriers among departments you might see at other (more boring) companies. Plus, our CEO makes a mean hand-squeezed margarita, so why not take full advantage?
You might just have to experience it to believe it, but here's some insight into a year in the life of Snaggers.
We ring in the New Year with a bracketed ping-pong tournament. Likelihood of seeing an appearance by John McEnroe? Extremely high.
The Annual Super Bowl Throwdown is much more than the consolation prize for the members of the Snagajob Fantasy Football League who are drowning in their misery from the inevitable awful draft pick. It also includes Jersey Day, Grandpa Eddie's smoked chicken wings and enough fanatic enthusiasm to make John Madden proud.
You might be used to some Irish Soda bread and pinches, but we take St. Patrick's Day to a whole new level. Bagpipers, Irish dancers, green beer, green Jell-O shots and real-life leprechauns, 'nuff said.
The holy grail of office games, Snagajob Office Olympics is an entire week of costumes and contests from opening ceremonies to chair curling.
We kick off May with our Cinco de Mayo fiesta and we follow that up with the Official Company Picnic, which marks the anniversary of Snagajob's initial launch. Friends and family come out for a half-day at Bogey's sports park with a fully-catered picnic, and as much mini-golf, driving range hacks and batting cage fastballs as you can stand.
We're not saying hidden talents are a prerequisite for Snaggerhood, but it certainly won't hurt your case. We kick the summer off right with our annual &aout;Snaggers Got Talent" show. The prize money is a little smaller than its NBC inspiration, but there's no drop-off when it comes to talent.
By mid-July the Innsbrook After Hours concert schedule is in full swing, and Snagajob celebrates by providing tickets for every Snagger (+1) and a tailgate with dinner served up by senior leadership. Who wouldn't have a great time with your CFO manning the grill and your CEO doling out potato salad?
Around August time, it's like Tiger Woods circa 2007 up in here, ya'll. You'd probably do well to leave out the career implosion and just stick to the office putt putt course, but we're not here to judge.
Although the Innsbrook Corporate Games only come around once a year, we've made it our year-round mission to train and totally dominate the competition. You'd be hard pressed to find a company in Innsbrook who take the Corporate Games as seriously as Snaggers (we're looking at you, Dominion Virginia Power).
You might have guessed, but this isn't the kind of office where one lonely person shows up in costume on Halloween. Around here, the only lonely person is the one who doesn't show up in costume. Every Snagger gets their own pumpkin and we dole out prizes for best pumpkin design, and group and solo costumes for Snaggers.
The Snagajob Annual Chili Cook-off allows Snaggers to showcase their favorite chili recipes in several categories (spice levels and meats of choice) and each bowl is judged objectively by ballot. If you don't have a chili recipe, there's always hope in the Dessert Throwdown.
When you mix a grand buffet and Snaggys (our version of the Oscars), it's hard to go wrong. The Snagajob holiday party is good times for all involved.
