I have been working at Careoregon full-time (More than a year)
Love coming to work every day! Excellent pay. Non-profit. Great co-workers, positive environment in most departments. Company is very employee-oriented. They take action based on employee feedback and the feedback is transparent. Much discussion of company visions, intentions and financials are given out freely in meetings. Everything is transparent, I just love how open the company is to any questions. There are no secrets. Open positions are posted, and encouragement given to apply. Innovation is exalted. Gosh, I can go on, this is such a great company!
Building is kept too hot! Often times floors are kept between 75-85 degrees even in the summer. Hard to work in those conditions. Some departments lack uplifting management - and are very clique-ish. Some supervisors/managers should not be supervisors and lack people/management skills (NOT my department).
Advice to Management
Keep cherishing your employees!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Careoregon (Portland, OR) in February 2014.
I had a phone interview in which the lady seemed perfectly normal and reasonable at first. She asked me some standard phone screening questions, we went over my resume (current position, skills, etc) then she invited me to come meet her in person.
Coming in person was a totally different experience. It became clear to me that the supervisor doing the hiring was extremely unprofessional and disorganized. She was rude and even stopped me during my interview to make a personal phone call, which she didn't seem to think was a big deal at all. I had everything she was looking for and she even told me herself, but she was very aloof and refused to make eye contact and kept doing unprofessional things likes playing with the telephone cord during our interview and looking out in the hall every time someone passed by. It was so bizarre and I've never had someone so incompetent and immature interview me. I was glad to just get out of there. I didn't bother to move onto any other steps because if she was going to be my supervisor, I know my life would have been a living nightmare.
