I have been working at Clover Technologies full-time (More than a year)
Fun culture with your fellow team members. If you can commit to your deadlines then no issues. Not a lot of red tape and you can present ideas that can be taken seriously. You can have honest conversations with management, and have honest feedback. The work is very team oriented and engaging, which is a "work hard, play hard" environment.
• My pros, is only in regards to my department and cannot be used in the same light for other departments in our company (unfortunately).
• Turnovers, retention.
• Lost 4 members from my department within my first year. (All left for better opportunities)
• Work is fast-paced which can be a challenge for some people who would like a slower-paced job.
Advice to Management
• Retention. Talent may want to leave, but just making an effort to retain them if they provide a benefit to the team.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Clover Technologies (Hoffman Estates, IL).
This was one of the most disorganized, confusing and frustrating interview process I have ever been on. It lasted almost a month and a half; and only stopped becuase i asked more a more definite answer going forward; and they couldn't get me one. If I continued with the background check it would easily lasted 2.5 months. The interview process went as so: I completed a phone interview and then was scheduled to meet with the manager over the small sales group I would be a part of. The first manager I met was great and I felt he was the only one truly prepared throughout this whole process. However, I was told the next step was to meet his manager; which is the manager over the entire sales department. I meet with him a week later and I have never had an interview quite like that. He had random questions and would cut me off. He also stated that everyone in the department I'm interviewing for is male and that it's a frat house. He said it's a drama free zone and he doesn't won't gossip. (I'm female) I said I would enjoy that but then told a story about his wife and how she gossips; and females gossip. He stated he felt I might be better in customers service rather than sales. I then stated my impressive sales records and stated that I've worked in a male dominated environment and have succeed. He backed up and said he wouldn't waste his time with me if he didn't think I wasn't qualified. He then had me meet the sales lead for the department. This individual said I must be doing really well if I'm meeting him. When I was walked out, I was told next steps and was given every impression I got the job. However, later that week I got a vague email from the recruiter stating the department manager would rather I interview for a customer service position. This then started a crazy two weeks, where I was interviewed by two different woman who forgot they were interviewing me nor knew what position I was there for. They had no real questions for me and I waited a half hour for the interview to even start. I was told later they had made a mistake and I wasnt even suppose to interview with either of them, there went another week. Then I meet a different individual for another position in the customer service department. And then after interviewing with seven people, my recruiter stopped responding to me. It took a week for me to even get an answer on what happens next and the answer was he didn't have one. He said he's hopefully in another week he might have a clearer answer. When I stated that I have meet with a number of people, been more than understanding and accommodating with the hiccups, mistakes, and being yanked around for well over a month and needed somewhat of an answer. He said they had some details to work out first but couldn't promise a job offer at this time; and that he didn't know when he could or if he ever could. He suggested I should go with other opportunities because he would hate to see them not offer me this position after I wait even longer. I went with one of the two other offers I received while waiting on this company. I couldn't say I wanted this position after all of this. If the interview process is any indication of how it is to work, it shows a very disorganized and unprofessional company.
