    Current Employee - Customer Service Representative in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Mbira Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Friendly and Like-Minded co-workers
    -Room for growth in the company
    -Incredible employee discount
    -Insurance Benefits
    -Good/ flexible hours
    -If you have a show and need someone to cover a shift its not a problem.
    -Well organized day-to-day objectives/ expectations
    -Build your knowledge of gear
    -Extremely nice supervisors (contrary to previous reviews)
    -I had some heath issues right when I started, I was a new employee and ended up missing about 1 month at first and then 3-4 months later that year. During my first stay in the hospital I got a card personally signed with little messages from every single employee and a prepaid gift card. I barely knew anyone there and this made me feel like I was part of a team, and that despite my lack of time with the company, I was highly valued.

    Cons

    -I honestly cant think of a fair con against working here. I get the impression that some of the other review were written by former employees who were upset. They make what seem to be some valid points, however, in my experience such issues have never presented themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, you know what your doing and do it well.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Mbira Technologies.

    Interview Details

    I applied on via Craigslist. Either that day or the next day they called me back but left no voicemail or extension number. I didn't even receive an email. So, i emailed them back and received no response. The number that they called me on didn't even allow me to leave a voicemail or to speak with someone. So I figured they weren't interested anymore after their attempt to contact me. So, fast forward about 3 days later, I get a call back from the supervisor/manager. I missed his call so I left a voicemail and he didn't call me back that day. The next day I called him back and he said thank you for calling back , he received my voicemail and was going to call me back later that day. We proceeded to with a preliminary interview over the phone before I could go on with the interview process. First , I was asked why am I interested in this type of position...I answered that one. So the next two questions was a deal breaker. He wanted to know, 1. how many keys are on a piano? 2. Does a passive speaker need an amp? I answered them both wrong and he said both questions have to be answered correctly in order to go forward with the interview process. I was thinking to myself like really? I was upset because I felt like those questions were the two most random questions to ask someone. He didn't even touch my musical background or experience and didn't ask about my work experience. I wasn't even given a chance to explain anything.
