Every day presents a new challenge
Accounts Payable Processor III (Current Employee), San Marcos, TXApril 3, 2013
Pros: company working as a team to produce valuable services to our customers.
Cons: not much room for advancement within my specific department.
Each day in accounts payable at Grande Communications offers a new challenge to tackle.
I have enjoyed my time here learning accounting processes and becoming proficient in excel, Epicor, and JD Edwards.
The camaraderie shared between co-workers and those within other departments is vital to accomplishing tasks.
Grande Communications is a fun, friendly – more... place to work. – less

Working for Grande Communications
Sr. Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TXFebruary 13, 2013
Pros: pay, co-workers and flexibly
Cons: didn't always have the best promotions to offer customers.
My typical day at Grande was meet with management have lunch with my fellow co-workers, head out to neighborhoods knock door to door sales.

I learned telecommunications, worked in teams and worked with customers needs.

Management was the best I've ever come to know.

Co-workers became life long friends (family)

Hardest part of job was not selling – more... period.

Best part of Job was a family type environment and pay. – less
