Pros: one hour lunch breaks, down to earth directors/ceo
Cons: self paced (your required to figure out everything on your own), lack of communication from the supervisor, no downtime, continuous work, favortism, my department was very disappointed
A typical day at work, would be to review retirement applications for accuracy. Ensuring that the correct contract application was submitted and all the required fields where filled out. Also ensuring that the supplimental forms are submitted and correctly filled out. Follow up contact made to the agent to obtain the necessary information needed to process their contracts. I learned a lot while working with the department, particularily time management, attention to detail and organizational skills. Each contract is specify and needs to be handled with care. With very little management supervison, we relied on one another to stay up to date with specific handling of certain contracts. Being the newest member of the team, I depended on my co-workers for guidance and they we're very helpful. The hardest part of the job was making sure that all the information was submitted correctly, the application version, the data entry, the supplimental forms per individual states, the in good order dates and the follow up. Though the most enjoyable part of the job with brainstorming as a team, to come up with the best method of handling uncommon applications and learning new procedures to ensure that you've done everything necessary prior to submitting each and every individual contract.
