Secondary Insurance Clerk
Secondary Insurance Clerk (Former Employee), Paducah, KYJuly 3, 2014
Pros: being able to perform office work
Cons: getting information that i needed
A typical day consisted of filing the secondary insurance for medical claims. I learned that I liked the challenge of catching up months of claims that were never filed by previous employers. Management was easy going and helpful when needed. My co-workers were eager and outgoing. The hardest part of my job was trying to contact insurance companies – more... over the phone and getting information that I needed. The most enjoyable part of my job was always being able to stay ahead and caught up on my claims, being organized and being in a office setting. – less

Greenies will never be like The MARS Candy Company, so run as fast as you can
Packaging Operator (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 15, 2014
Pros: medical benifits
Cons: 6 supervisers in 4 years, read between the lines!
Management is terrible at the Kansas City site. You have to be the top cheerleader to get promoted, doesn't matter about your qualifications. No concern for their employee. Very much a back stabbing environment. A revolving door for 3rd party personal. Company always running out of supplies/material to do the job properly. inadequate equipment and/ – more... or not enough equipment to get production out with the demands of management. – less

A great place to gain expereance in computer technology and repair.
Computer Technician (Former Employee), Hudson, FLJanuary 11, 2014
Pros: i gaind exspereance and enjoyed the work.
Cons: no heath care plan
Log in new computers to be repaired. Repair laptops or PCs deliver the laptops at the end of the day to the eBay department for sale. Help with the packaging and shipping of merchandise. Clean work area and warehouse. Organize back stock and call customers to let them know their computers were ready for pickup. I would work with management to complete – more... orders and train new co-workers how to do the job correctly. I did not find the job to be hard and I really enjoyed seeing a broken laptop work correctly after putting time and effort into it. – less

Merchandizer who stocked local shelves
Merchandiser & Audit Service (Former Employee), Puerto RicoSeptember 23, 2013
Pros: different locations every day.
Cons: long driving hours.
During a typical day of work I would travel to local supermarkets, stores and gas stations to fill the candy racks. I have learned to be very organized doing this, as most retailers want their shelves to be neat and tidy. It also helps them sell more candy. If a product is easy to find, it will be easier to sell more. The hardest part of my job was – more... the travel. Sometimes I would have to travel long distances to fill merchandizer shelves. I didn't really have coworkers as each of would have our own daily route. I work great as a team player or myself. Being a merchandizer, it was quite lonely sometimes, as it's usually myself traveling to different stores. The most enjoyable part of my job was when I would get to my end point and start filling the shelves. I enjoyed the conversation with different store owners and workers. – less
