Field Human Resources Generalist (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – April 19, 2013
As a Human Resources professional, my responsibilities were diverse and unpredictable at times. A typical day involved interacting with applicants, new hires, incumbent associates and managers in many different ways-appearances at Job Fairs, visits to schools/community organizations, determining staffing needs and developing plans to address them, job offers, New Hire Orientation and helping to resolve associate issues.
Through my experiences I've become more resourceful at resolving unexpected situations when they arise, expanded my Spanish-speaking capabilities and broadened my HR knowledge through various work assignments and through PHR certification.
I worked with an experienced, dedicated, stable management team and a highly talented, dedicated, professional group of co-workers.
The most difficult part of my job was not always being able to deliver positive news to applicants and incumbent associates(i.e. not being selected for a position, disciplinary actions). However, I always delivered these messages in an empathetic manner, always trying to make the recipient understand why the decision was made.
The most enjoyable part of the job was receiving appreciation from associates and managers when I resolved an issue or came up with a solution to a problem or need. This made me feel good, knowing that I made a positive impact on the associates' ability to take care of customers and the managers' ability to run their operation. Also, being afforded the opportunity to experience South America and Asia while conducting company business.
my manager-she was very flexible, understanding, accesible, patient and knowledgeable-a great boss and an even better person.
