Pivotal Payments – Why Work For Us?

At Pivotal Payments, we've prioritized creating a dynamic, efficient workforce and promoting a positive culture at all levels of the organization. An example of this is the repatriation of our off-shore Client Care center back to North America. This has led to significant improvements in not only customer experience levels, but also to greater job satisfaction for our employees. 

We have also evaluated remuneration across North America to better align our Canadian and US compensation plans with industry norms and local markets. Most importantly, under the leadership of a newly reorganized and energized Operations department, we've made material changes to both our people and processes. We recognized where we needed to improve based on direct feedback, and most importantly have acted on it. We cannot change the past but are actively changing the future. 

Improvements in communication, new training initiatives and career advancement opportunities allow us to celebrate, now more than ever, the individual successes of our people who give 100% each and every day. Thank you to everyone who is steadfast in continuing the journey together.

    I have been working at Pivotal Payments full-time (More than a year)


    Although I recently started with Pivotal, I left a 20 year career with another company because I think Pivotal has a ton of potential and was expanding their operations in AZ. The old location in north phoenix is nice office, but the new office at Sky Song in south Scottsdale will help Pivotal recruit top talent from the entire valley. I like how “employee forward” Pivotal is, they took the time to establish 3 committees as a response to employee feedback in a survey. Now there are social events, improved training opportunities and enhanced communication tools to foster a connected and engaged workforce. As the company laid the foundation for its growth acquiring new tools, resources, and processes…. It means getting to “build new” more often than “doing the same thing that has been done the same way for years” creating lots of opportunity for personal growth and a challenging work environment rather than drone like drudgery.


    Some functions are very eastern time zone centric, so hours of operation are very early for AZ participants. Not a real problem unless you are more of a night owl.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the people and the culture as they are critical to achieve the desired growth.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Pivotal Payments (Phoenix, AZ) in May 2017.


    One initial call from the recruiter, then four individual phone interviews, and a final follow up call with the initial offer. I responded with a counter offer before accepting a mutually agreed upon modification to the initial offer.
