Fast paced work and constantly needing to meet deadlines
Full time worker (Current Employee), Mira Loma, CA – March 17, 2013
Pros: flexible time and rewarding job
Cons: less people to keep up with the huge volumes on certain days.
On a typical day, i release all the priorities and sort them out in order of cut off times. I pick boxes based on the information on the labels and label them. After that i send it on the conveyor to be picked by other associates while i track it on the system to make sure that it gets to the track on time. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing – more... that all the boxes irrespective of volume make it out on time. The hardest part of the job is when you have to track a box which is going round on the conveyor and with time not on your side. – less
Major Accounts Representative (Current Employee), Williamsville, NY – February 17, 2013
Pros: breakfast served, work/life balance, fun work sponsored events
Cons: compensation borders on minimum wage after tax, advancement is difficult
Overall a gerat work/life balance. A typical day in sales consists of being on the phone quoting items that the customer knows they want, pushing customers to technical support or fixing order errors caused either by the warehouse or technical support or due to customer selection error. Advancement is the company is very difficult unless you chose to – more... leave for a vendor and return a couple of years later. College education is also not weighted much within the company anymore so if you don't have one, it isn't an issue. It should be noted however that there are some perks such as breakfast served a few times per week and internal training opportunities that could be transferred to other organizations. Overall it's a great place to start working if you are new to corporate environments, but for the college educated professional looking to grow their career and be able to make a liveable wage for their family, this is the wrong place. – less

Market Development Manager (Former Employee), Williamsville, NY – October 2, 2012
Pros: room for advancment. great for building a network and relationships
Cons: job stability
Constant emails, conference calls, meetings, and phone calls make the days go by quick. I have learned how to successfully manage large customers and vendors to a profitable end. Co-workers and management were keys to my success, as I was always part of a team. The hardest part of the job was dealing with irate customers. I dealt with this by doing – more... my best to calm them down and give them extra special treatment to ensure they would bring their business back again. The most enjoyable part of the job was having the ability to be creative in managing my customers and vendor line. – less

Call center is relentless, work quickly becomes monotonous
NETWORK/COMPUTER TELEPHONY SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Williamsville, NY – April 23, 2012
Call after call after call after call... There is no break in-between calls and you are required to be on the phones for an unreasonable amount of time per day. Formal training is minimal, mostly on-the-job by asking senior employees. I learned that cubicle, call-center jobs are tough and sitting in a chair all day in front of a computer monitor attached – more... to a phone headset is disheartening. The hardest part of the job is not gaining 10 pounds in your first 6 weeks. The most enjoyable part of the job is leaving at the end of the day. – less
