I have been working at Overdrive Interactive full-time (More than 5 years)
I have been employed with Overdrive Interactive since 2009 and seen a lot of people come and go – AND a lot of people stay. Having Overdrive experience on your resume is a career builder and resume enhancer. Past employees move on to being at the top of their field working client or agency side. About 50% of current employees have been here for years.
Overdrive is a highly successful, stable and cutting edge agency. Staying current on all channels has been imperative with Overdrives’ success. We have potential clients calling us for presentations and current clients increasing their budgets.
Our CEO is a dynamic leader -- always seeking new ways to present ideas and helping every employee find their ultimate potential. Working for OD is a solid job. You will learn here, you will get amazing industry experience here – that IS certain.
There is a 'family' vibe to the work day -- caring intelligent people will be your co-workers. Diverse personalities and interests - makes it a workday a lot more pleasant.
For the overwhelming majority - Overdrive is a great fit, but for a very few - not so much. Bad reviews come from past employees that were given too many chances and continued to fail.
Advice to Management
Don’t give so many chances to chronically poor performances. Continue being the 'powerhouse agency' you are.
I applied online. I interviewed at Overdrive Interactive (Boston, MA) in February 2017.
I was contacted via email with a set of 25 questions. I made a document and submitted it. They invited me to meet two senior members of the team. This happened one day after I received the introductory email. I discussed the role with both the members who were happy with my experience. However they forgot to have a hypothetical search campaign that I prepared for. When I mentioned it, they asked me to email it, which I submitted in one day. I was promised a reply in one week. However, I haven't received any communication till now. (1.5 months) I have written two follow-up emails but they didn't have the courtesy to reply back.
