Pros: good benefits, caring supervisor, a lot of vacation, personal, sick time
Cons: compensation did not reflect performance, typical office gossip
I was a clerk in the Accounts Payable Department. I was a "keyer" which meant that I would manually enter invoices for payment as they came in to our office. My supervisors were exceptional. They were very caring and seemed to not only care about the person as an employee but also on a personal level. The majority of my co-workers were very competent. – more... Some chose to break rules and many got away with it because they were doing the bare minimum requirements. I actually enjoyed being busy and chose not to go that route and would ask for additional work which did seem to be noticed by supervisors but not always show in compensation as everyone would receive a certain percentage for a yearly raise which didn't seemed to be based on the work performance. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting long-term goals that would seem almost impossible when we began. ie. becoming a paperless department – less
If you get hurt at work don't go through Worker's Comp., also be prepared to work with rude coworkers and supervisors.
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee), Crawfordsville, IN – April 10, 2013
If you get hurt at work and go through worker's comp., they will send you to their doctor, but not before they make it seem like it was completely your fault you got hurt. If you have surgery because of it you will get sent back to work the next work day. They don't allow time off for worker's comp surgery/ injury. You do get lots of paid time off. – more... I used mine for my surgery. Co-workers and supervisors often are very rude and they like to argue with each other. The best part of the job, though, is the insurance. – less

pay was little even when advanced as high as possible not exceeding management. only rewards were the free book giveaways, and the overall health benefits. Pay on the other hand would leave you questioning which is more important..
