When we speak of being Impactful at Clickstop, we’re referring to impact over time. It’s the result of not settling or becoming complacent with results and involves regularly taking educated risks and owning its success or failure. When these team members identify that something needs to happen, they take ownership to ensure it’s done.
Over the course of her 8+ years at Clickstop, Rachel Neve has assumed a variety of roles. The responsibility changes were the result of her own pursuit of seeking great results, while also looking for the opportunity to make great impact.
Currently, she’s driving impact in graphic design, merchandising, creative strategy and messaging, and traditional marketing. She’s driving a new look and feel for the US Cargo Control brand and supporting the acquisition of new customers through added marketing support.
And through owning successes and failures and utilizing the constructive feedback of her peers, she continues to find ways to make greater impact. She’s a team player that we can count on to accomplish an amazing amount of work with a can-do attitude, while making sure that we have fun doing it.
Thanks for the impact you continue to create at Clickstop, Rachel. Well done!

How long have you worked at Clickstop?
What brought you to Clickstop?
I had heard great things from my dear friend Sarah Meinders who was working here at the time. They were hiring for a Photographer and I had just graduated from Iowa less than a year before that with my BFA in Photography & Graphic Design. Seemed like a perfect fit so I applied. I actually ended up getting hired as a sales specialist for the “Bing” team that was just getting developed. My responsibilities included customer service/sales, product photography, email design, and…..shipping BellyBling, Fitness Fire, and TruWell products! Haha, it was truly all hands-on deck back then!
What effect has this recognition had upon you?
I tried to stop and think about WHY I received this particular Core Trait award. Then I realized it’s simply because I love my job and I care immensely about the success of the brand. I don’t think twice about what I can do to be impactful – it just happens because I want to do whatever I can to drive growth and see the brand and Clickstop succeed.
Why is this Core Trait important to the success of Clickstop?
If you’re not working on impactful things, you’re not impacting anything in a positive way. Simple as that.
What do you believe has led up to this recognition?
I would say the most important thing I have always prided myself on is “You accomplish amazing amounts of important, relevant work on time.” That has kind of been my M.O. since I started here and something that has been recognized over the years as something I do well. And there is always a lot of work to do so this trait sure does help get things done 😉
What are ways you’ve challenged yourself to live out and grow within the Core Values?
When I feel myself struggling with any of the core values, I think about a person who does it well and try to push myself to be more like them (that sounds really weird now that I’m saying it out loud, haha).
How do you ensure your work is aligning with our mission, values, strategies and goals?
By constantly communicating openly with my team, manager, and other members of teams I work closely with.
What inspires you about the work of your team members?
It’s crazy and inspiring to see how much all of my teammates on the USCC marketing team care about the success of the brand. They all really do put their hearts and souls into all of the work they do. I am proud to be on their team, no doubt. Love you guys!
What should people know about working at Clickstop?
Find a role that doesn’t feel like a job. Then everything (living out the Core Values, fulfilling the Mission Statement, etc.) just comes naturally.
If you had to pick one food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
What is one thing you loved as a child that today’s kids would know nothing about?
Storm soda – I was obsessed
Do you have a nickname(s)? If so, what is it? Why is it your nickname?
Rocky. I’m not exactly sure how it came about. Sarah Meinders and Krystal Talbert may have an opinion here haha. It’s sort of my alter-ego I would say….after I have enjoyed a few tequilas…
What is the silliest way you’ve been injured?
I cut my finger on a tuna can and had to get 6 stitches. My finger wasn’t the only thing scarred. I didn’t open a tuna can for years after.
