At Polar Bear, we clearly and honestly state when advancements are possible within the company at the time of hire. Advancement is not automatic for any team member, but dependent upon achievement at the hired position, meeting certain goals, and the availability of the advanced position. If mastery at the hired position has not been achieved, additional training and correction is applied to help a team member succeed. Mastery at one level must be achieved before advancement to the next level. If additional training and correction does not remedy significant deficits in performance, a team member may be released, with such deficits discussed in the exit interview. These policies apply to all team members.
