RBA - Rep Benefits Admin (Current Employee) – Westlake Village, CA – September 22, 2013
Working for Securitas has been a wonderful experience, my previous job (WellPoint) showed me the claim side but at Securitas I learned so much about Benefits, what can be offered to employees and how hard management tries to provide for the employees. A day at Securitas starts at 8:00 a.m. on Mondays I cancel any benefits for employees that went to part-time hrs and send the request for Cobra benefits, answer email from the branches with changes, enrollment or need check benefits for there employees, sent letter to the branch for employee that moved from Security office to Admins. lunch at 12 and back to work at 12:30 continue with charge backs and credits for the branch or refunds to the members, help any co-worker with any issue, our department believes in cross-training to prevent any delays on setting up benefits for the employees. We have a meeting once a week for any updates on any issue or any laws that might change to prevent any lawsuits. The hardest part of my job is not letting an employee drop their benefits when its a court order because some of the employees don't make enough but based on the calculation and guidelines provided by the NMS Unit. I enjoy being able to help and solve problems and I am happy that my supervisor believes and trust me.
Every day before the holiday they let us leave 3 hrs early.
Fashion Design Assistant, FRIENDS with BENEFITS (Former Employee) – 39 Walker #3R New York, NY 10013 – April 30, 2013
I continued to learn something new each and everyday. I have grown leaps and bounds in my technical skills of design. Most importantly Friends with Benefits helped me gain the personal confidence I need in my work to succeed.
Typical days at work allow employees to engage directly/indirectly with thousands of city workers on daily basis while establishing effective professional relationships. Learning to do things right, save time, the first time every time. The hardest part of the job is working with bias management among some leaders that displays micromanagement, intimidation, and create hostility. The most enjoyable part of the job knows that you provided exceptional customer service to the people that count on your integrity, loyalty, and trust.
Options to grow in management skills & and strengthen my skill set
Retention/Benefits Specialist (Current Employee) – Fidelis Care Health Insurance – January 22, 2013
I have near autonomy in my current position at the Retention/Benefits Specialist. I come into the office and sit at my desk where I immediately begin to create departmental spreadsheets. In each spreadsheet is data from the previous day's assignments from each member's production. Upon completion of the data input, I transfer my data collection to a fellow colleague who processes it further. Then I begin my daily call list where I educate members about their health insurance policies and try to help them make educated decisions about the health of their family members and loved ones. My manager is accessible should an unforeseen issue arise that needs additional input and her feedback is always valued. She has extensive experience in health care industry and I've sought to glean from her knowledge source. The most challenging aspect of my job is being willing to ask for input when it could be conducive and beneficial. Other viewpoints can shed light onto current issues. My colleagues are quite knowledgeable and share their input when appropriate. I find the most enjoyment when I am able to process insurance applications that assist the less fortunate in having access to inexpensive health insurance and medications at a lesser cost than traditionally people would pay.
the ability to assist others in a confidential and prompt manner with the health insurance needs.
a lack of ability to assist the population with other needs such as housing, job placement, and assisting the more challenged members of society.
