    I worked at OverDrive full-time (More than a year)


    I was employed for OverDrive in the development department and I can't say enough good things about the company. The CEO is a genuinely nice person, they work culture is relaxed and the grounds are beautiful.


    Could have more structure when it comes to productivity/goals/work. I love the culture, but it left a lot of room for people to not work.

    Account Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at OverDrive (Cleveland, OH) in October 2016.


    I applied to an Account Specialist position with OverDrive at the beginning of October. I followed up with my application twice before finally receiving a response from the recruiter, who was extremely helpful. The recruiter told me the original position I has applied for had been filled but that there was another Account Specialist position open with another team. He set me up with a phone interview, which lasted approximately 45-60 minutes. The recruiter was very personable and ended the conversation by informing me that he felt like I would be a great addition to their team and was going to inform the hiring manager. He also said that the company had a number of positions open and that he would give my resume around to other hiring managers as well to see if anyone was interested.

    I was contacted mid November for an in-person interview with the hiring manager. Before meeting with her, I was given a 30 minute writing test to complete on the computer. The interview lasted approximately an hour further and the hiring manager left me feeling pretty optimistic about the opportunity.

    The following week I was contacted by the recruiter again and was informed that, although I was still in consideration for the previous position, another manager wanted to meet with me. I went in for another interview the following week and met with the hiring manager initially, then ended the interview by meeting with two key team members. I was also required to provide writing samples for this second in-person interview as well.

    With the Holidays, it wasn't until two weeks later that I attempted to follow-up. I received a response the next week and was told that with it being. Holiday season, things were going a little slower and that I would hear back within the next few weeks. When I didn't hear back, I followed-up again but received no response. Upon receding another offer somewhere else, I quit trying.

    Overall, I felt like I was getting a run around from OverDrive. I met all of the requirements for both positions I applied for and the interviews went seemingly well but yet there was no response. With both positions being extremely low-paying, I was hesitant to even apply but I felt the culture of the company would make it worth it.
