I have been working at Clover Technologies full-time (Less than a year)
Overall a great company to work for. Upper management is leading the company in a positive direction. There are constantly opportunities to learn new skills, the people are great to talk with, and the work-life balance is awesome.
Lack of accountability, false reporting, and unethical practices by low-mid level management. I have repeatedly witnessed the same individuals lying to their department employees and "team" members. These same individuals have been with the company for years and have moved up into these low-mid level management positions, but they do not have the skills to lead or manage a department. They are complacent and do not think they have to worry about upper management.
Advice to Management
For as great of a company I think Clover is and for all the potential it has I would not recommend working here to a friend due to these reasons: The Clover culture and values are being manipulated by the time they reach non-management workers. There is a serious lack of accountability at the low-mid management level mixed with a high feeling of complacency.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Clover Technologies (Hoffman Estates, IL) in June 2015.
A basic interview process, I came in and answer questions about my past careers and experience. Next was a phone tech screening with their consultant IT engineer. After which the IT Director wanted to hire me but wanted to talk to the consultant IT engineer who gave me the screening first. I received a call back 5 days later, the IT Director offered me the position, but told me not to put in noticed yet. As I had to go through the background check process. I did not put in notice and talked with the HR representative. He started the back ground check process. The HR representative went ahead and contacted my current employer without letting me know and gave them a survey to do, asked them for a recommendation and job information. This left me in an awkward situation, as now my current job knew I was looking for a different job. I provided the HR representative six references which they ask for. They didn’t contact any of them. A few days later the IT Director contacts me, and would like me to come in and meet with 2 more Directors. I meet with them, just basic introduction interviews, no tech questions or past employment questions. Later that week I get an email from the IT Director stating they were going to interview a couple more people but I was still the front runner. The next week I get an email stating they will not be pursuing me for employment. Clover Technologies left me out to dry. They offer me the job, then contacted my current employer without letting me know, had me come in for more interviews, and then rescinded the job offer for no reason given. Pretty much leaving me in a bad situation with my current employer. They need hiring training and HR department needs to be overhaul. Very bad hiring practices. Totally screwed me over at my current employer. Buyer beware!!
