Ok that probably isn’t the first thing you were looking for when you decided to look for a job, but it isn’t unusual for happy hour to start around 3:30 on a Friday. What you won’t find at RIVS Bureaucracy. If you need to get something done just ask, whoever you need to ask. You don’t have to email your boss, who emails their boss, who submits a PO, which needs to be approved by finance, then reviewed by legal…ugh that was exhausting just to write. Boredom.
