A great place to work
Billing Specialist (Former Employee), Dublin, OhioSeptember 27, 2014
Pros: this company had an atm installed in the cafeteria, they had a lot of employee appreciationn days to let us know our hard work was appreciated
Cons: none...i enjoyed my job with this company
I started with this company in the Accounts Receivable department. Even though I only had a small amount of experience in this area of business and had just moved from another state when I applied for the job, this company gave me a chance to prove myself. Maintaining customer information in the database and sending out bills to customers was the main – more... thing I did. However, before mailing the bills out I had to make sure all the information was correct. I dealt with large, well known companies and my name went on the billing. There is nothing worse than sending a statement with wrong information on it to a customer. It was not only embarrassing to the company, but to me personally. If something was not right with the bill, I worked with other departments until it was corrected.
I learned that having precise and correct information BEFORE a bill gets mailed to a customer is good for business and myself. I may not be as fast in my work as others, but I pride myself in being thorough and accurate.
I would like to think that my time management is good. However, someone else may think I can do better. If this is the case, I will have them discuss with me where I can make improvements and do my best to make any necessary adjustments.
I usually get along with my co-workers. I try to resolve any issues that may arise. I've never had any issues with co-workers that couldn't be resolved in a professional manner.
The hardest part of this job was the mandatory overtime. When business was especially good, OT was part of the job. I didn't mind it, however, sometimes it was hard to schedule family functions on weekends. Mandatory OT could be an ongoing event every weekend, sometimes lasting several months straight. The money was good though.
I enjoyed working with data on computers. I would put my headphones on and get to work. If there were minimal interruptions I could put out hundreds of statements a day. With each statement I printed, I I felt like I accomplished a great deal, especially when I knew the information on them was correct. – less

IT Work Request Coordinator/Employee Changes (Former Employee), Dublin, OHDecember 27, 2013
A typical day at work started with answering any emails, prioritizing my work. Most important things were done first based on deadlines that had to be met.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the other departments closely to ensure that my job was completed with the deadlines I had.

Full time Summer Internship in Customer Solutions (Former Employee), Dublin, OhioAugust 14, 2013
Pros: i learned so much and made so many connections and relations.
Cons: constant delays and troubles with loads - causes stress and angry customers.
This was a two part internship -
1.) The program: We worked in groups of 3 to put together and present two presentation on the business of transportation and logistics, and worked in a group of 13 to do a case study on the company onboarding process and presented the results to the company executives.
2.) On the Job training: during my time I learned – more... how to do so many tasks, and helped multiple people every day to help lighten their work load. Everyone I worked with took the time to teach me how to do things so I fully understood what I was doing. While doing those daily tasks I constantly answered calls from dispatchers and customers pertaining to driver detention and accessorial charges.
During this time, I also managed the Whirlpool account for a short period of time while an employee was out. I managed the transportation of appliances from Mexico through Laredo, TX into the United States and Canada. – less

Strictly formal, by-the-book organization
Shared Service Accounting (Former Employee), Dublin, OHMarch 29, 2012
This organization has very strictly formal values, from employee communication limitations, closely-watched hours, and other such aspects. Coworkers were friendly when allowed, but at-work fraternization of even the shortest length was very discouraged. Hiring process had a tendency to proceed slowly.
