Pros: beautiful office, free parking.
Cons: located long island new york - long commute.
I handled back office operations duties for many financial companies and correspondents on a daily basis in the Mutual Fund department. Every client had different software/systems so multitasking was at the forefront. The duties I performed were balancing, reconciliation, in- house systems trading and trade adjustments, research, projects, monthly and – more... quarterly tasks and a variety of customer needs as warranted. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with my co-workers who were fine seasoned professional people. – less

Machine Operator (Current Employee), Edgewood, NY – February 11, 2014
Pros: high chances of overtime
Cons: a lot of pressure from management to reach daily production goal
the workload could go from being extremely busy to not have anything to do. The management is fare and does not sent people home unless is an extreme situation of lack of work. The coworkers are very nice and try to help each other out. The hardest part of the job lays on the fact that the have a number of production for employees to reach on a daily – more... basis but due to the variety volume between each job it is sometimes quite challenging to reach that goal. The most fun part is working with such a diverse group of people and learning about each culture plus forming part of the events (Which include multicultural week and halloween costume contests) – less

Order Fulfillment Clerk (Former Employee), Owings Mills, Maryland – January 23, 2014
Pros: 30min lunch, safe, quiet, never a dull moment
Cons: job security, no direct customer service
A typical day at work would consist of me completing around 40-60 orders averaging up to about 900 kits or more. 900 kits was our daily quota when I first started. I would actually take breaks of fulfilling and help out in the shipping area where we utilized Sendsuite Express and DW20 mailing machines if needed. I would also check the shipping label – more... of the packages of kits we produced. I learned a multitude of things (with it being my first job) I did not know what to expect. My fast learning skills made me the fastest worker while maintaining great quality of my work. I loved my co workers and manager and we respected each other. I never considered my job hard but if I had to consider a hard part I'd say ensuring my coworkers had given me the correct numbers to add the daily production piece counts needed for the daily unit cost data. I enjoyed everything about my job because I am a rather flexible guy so, no matter the job I consider enjoyable and am very thankful for the opportunity. – less

This job was very helpful to me and benefited me in so many different ways. I did enjoy with my co-workers and liked the definition of team work. – less

Typical day would involve reviewing priority queues and distributing the work load based on the skills of staff on hand that day.
