Pros: free shoes and accessories give away
Cons: had to work some weekends if payroll needed to be done.
A typical day at Off Broadway Shoes for me was fast paced and great. I learned how to work in an office environment which I quickly realized is the environment that I wanted to work in and flourished in. I also learned some administrative and clerical work along with payroll. I moved up quickly from receptionist to payroll assistant and then to payroll manager. My day started with looking at my emails and entering in any new hires, I polled the clocks for 76 stores all over the US, faxed the daily hours sheets to each store, and if it was a Monday I would do weekly and or biweekly totals for the stores to verify. If it was a payroll week I would also upload the hours and verify that all of the checks had the correct hours paid for. Then the mail would arrive and I would make sure all of the needed new hire paperwork was accounted for for each new hire and maintain the personnel files. There was always something to do in the payroll department, which is what I loved. I could always go to management if I had any question or a problems with a stores payroll or anyone not following the handbook and they would talk to me about what we could and would do to fix the problem. My co-workers were awesome, very easy to talk to and get along with, we would set up after work activities such as game night and diner. The hardest part of my job was benefits enrollment for the years that I did it. Some of the employees did not understand our insurance and would get very upset about the answers they were hearing. The most enjoyable part of my job was the interacting with the store managers and employees. I really liked getting to know them and helping them whenever I could with their payroll questions.
