When you begin your employment with PRPL, we want you to take the opportunity to get to know us and make sure you are comfortable working here. Your first ninety (90) days of employment at PRPL are considered an Introductory Period. Leadership and your fellow employees will work closely to help you understand the processes and requirements of the position. Employees are highly encouraged to ask questions and clarify any areas of concern throughout this process.

At the end of the introductory period, your Department Director will discuss your job performance with you at a 90-Day Review. During the course of the discussion, you are encouraged to communicate your progress as well. We hope that you successfully complete your introductory period. Once you do, you will be well on your way to a productive working relationship with PRPL. However, please be aware that this completion does not guarantee your continued employment with PRPL.
