Welcome to your first day. We're excited to get started! You should be as well!


First, you should have had a chance to sit with the CEO, Tim Gray, and COO, Robert Hamm, as well as meet your agency mentor. Robert will help you obtain your company logins, email address, and sign all of your onboarding paperwork. He will also provide the company handbook for you to read and sign. 

When you meet your Grayscale mentor, he/she will guide you through the ins and outs of the office. Additionally, they will be available to answer any questions that may arise. Your Grayscale mentor will introduce you to everyone on the team, show you where your work area is, help you get set up, logged in, and generally be your work guide in the beginning. 


Of course, my door is always open, but I want you to utilize your mentor so we can ensure you have the best experience possible while starting your new journey.
