    I have been working at OverDrive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of perks, good benefits and activities, casual environment, great product. There are people who will encourage, challenge, and help you grow.

    Cons

    Even though the product is great, there needs to be better planning of new features to truly maximize benefits to the customer. Some managers are good at this, others are not.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be better inter-department collaboration, there are a lot of shared interests and resources that are not fully utilized.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OverDrive (Garfield Heights, OH) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Started the process with a phone interview. I was asked to go to overdrive for an in-person interview. The interview took around 45 minutes. I got called back for a second in-person interview. I interviewed the CEO, COO and head of the department of the job I was interviewing for. the staff was friendly but the interview process was very unprofessional. I was dressed in a business professional attire while they were dressed in a casual attire. The questions were very generic questions that every single person asked. The questions in my second in-person interview were similar to the first interview and they were asked by the same person. The whole interview was very repetitive and made me feel that they were not paying attention to my answers. The whole process was unorganized with all the times set being changed and the Email sent with the interview information was horrible. It did not help at all. It was also sent to me multiple times for every interview. Finally when I got an answer back it was through an automated Email that other companies send to someone when they do not want the person after just looking at his resume. I felt disrespected by the final Email received. I did not go through the whole process and making all the drives to receive a two sentence Email. At least reply with the reason you went with the other candidate and a personalized thank you note. The pay is also very low for such a job and was not worth all the effort of the interviews. The job's pay is 15000 below the average pay a college student with a degree deserves.
