Pros: Good benefits, meetings at Hard Rock Cafe
Cons: Short breaks, but I didn't mind I liked my work. I would even start 15/ 20 minutes early.
As a 3rd party Canon Employee working at Peoples United Bank Headquarters, it consisted basically of Accounting, mainframe printing, and fulfilling customers ad-hoc print requests. I would start 6:30 am to get various bills and statements printed and ready for the mail room to be mailed. Next I would enter into Excel spreadsheet, the number of impressions or pages printed for each department into a billing report to charge back to the proper department. Total pages would have to balance to the printer start to end meter read for the day. We would also receive requests via email or customers coming to the counter. This would also have to be entered into a billing spreadsheet.
I learned a lot about Excel and its formulas, Adobe Acrobat, print management, and Outlook.
Management was tough but fair. We had crunch times and also slack times.
My co-workers were great. We had a great team! There were 7 of us. Then the bank outsourced the mainframe printing part and 4 people were let go.
The hardest part of the job was working under pressure, but I liked it. One time an instructor called me and she just realized she had no training manuals for her class. You should have seen how happy she was when I walked into her classroom 20 minutes later with the manuals.
The most enjoyable part was fulfilling customers' needs. They were very appreciative. Some baked cookies or brought in doughnuts.
