Payroll Coordinator/Receptionist (Former Employee), St. Louis, MO. – August 29, 2012
Pros: a few free lunches and free coffee; flexibility in schedule.
Cons: favoritism; no benefits or vacation time when an employee works 32 hours or more, which is considered part-time.
A typical day is first checking e-mails and printing any time sensitive information; answering phones and transferring calls to appropriate departments; greeting visitors; organizing payroll information; assisting with billing paperwork; checking reports for accuracy; having a laugh or two with fellow co-workers; grabbing a cup or two of coffee. I've – more... learned how to calculate time cards in a fast, efficient manner with minimal errors. Management can be very arrogant and are very tempermental; they do not acknowledge good work, they only address problems. Sometimes they accuse people of wrong doing when there is no wrong doing involved, just miscommunication or misinterpretation of information. A particular work issue can be made a big issue because management says it is, right or wrong. Most co-workers are sociable and friendly. The hardest part of the job is not being acknowledged for being a good worker and not getting adaquate raises. The most enjoyable part of the job is being busy and the free coffee. – less
