Contractor for SCANA
Contractor (Former Employee), Aiken, SCMay 11, 2014
Pros: learned skills for career path and learn better customer service, the break room was very relaxing
Cons: there were no cons
The typical day was making calls to SCANA clients to collect payment for services and also place work orders in system

I learned to pay attention to detail

My co workers was a balance of those with families and very nice and kind personalities.

The hardest part of the job was that I was in college at the time therefore I had to balance work and class – more... work

Most enjoyable was that I was learning career skills – less

Very fun and productive atmosphere
Billing Specialist (Former Employee), Cayce, SCApril 26, 2014
Pros: morale was high, very productive work
Cons: low pay
I would handle a finite number of task to be completed by the end of my shift. I learned how to be more efficient in fixing issues with customers' bills. Management was very supportive and kind. My co-workers in and out of my department were very friendly. Systems were having concerns proved to be the only difficult part of the job; having to play catch – more... up, although management understood systematic issues having absolute control over productivity. The overall morale was high and maintained; it was a great experience. – less

Great Company/Questionable Department
Specialist (Former Employee), ColumbiaApril 23, 2014
Pros: benefits, people
Cons: departmental leadership
Company is great, but the department and leadership where this position resides is a challenge. Favoritism abounds, no room for growth, and leadership that is punitive and not strategic are hallmarks here. Turnover outpaces the rest of the company by far, especially in public relations and web development area.

Good place to work
Application Developer (Former Employee), Jenkinsville, SCMarch 12, 2014
Pros: break when you want to, on site gym
Cons: long drive for me
A typical day at work involves meetings, chatting with coworkers, and getting work done. While it is stressed that you make progress with your work and do your best to make deadlines, you are not micromanaged. You are allowed to work, for the most part, how you want to work. The hardest part of the job is that nothing moves fast. You have to wait on – more... several levels of management and several departments, such as security and DBAs, to get much done. However, if you can get in, it is good place to work. – less

Great company
Customer Service Department (Former Employee), Columbia, SCDecember 22, 2013
Pros: modern facilities, technology, learning environment
As someone told me when I first started, I agree with "I really think this is one of the companies where the cream rises to the top".
It's not perfect but nothing is. The company treats it's employees well, has lots of perks, will train and develop you, give you plenty of opportunities, and actually pays fair market rates/wages/salaries to their employees. – more... I can't say enough about the amount that I learned here and the opportunities that I was given. This really is one of those companies where if you go to work every day, do your job well, commit to the company and industry, want to be there, that you can plan to retire from. I moved and didn't get that luxury - if I did not move I would still be here.
However, you are monitored all time (maybe not so different from everywhere else) so the quality is top notch if you are okay with the constant checks and monitoring. To me it got to be a little too invasive because it never eases up.
The only thing that I did not experience was a productive relationship with my supervisors. My Managers were great and filled in the gaps - however why would you staff a company with supervisors that do not provide helpful, developmental, constructive feedback and develop their people? I won't get started on this portion because I think that this paragraph is clear enough.
The technology is great, you will stay up to date with news/happenings/software, everything. They even do well by their employees with great perks like areas to work out (relieve some stress during your day at the gym or on the walking trails then take a shower and head back), desks that lift so you can stand at work and not have to sit, etc.
Really a top notch company - just recognize that in an environment like this you have to make sure no one else is vying for your job and make friends everywhere (it's easy, lots of great people!) so that you will be well networked and have the support you need. – less

Customer Relations Specialist (Former Employee), Columbia, SCJuly 11, 2013
Pros: awesome work environment
I really loved this job and cried when I had to leave with my husband for another state. The co-workers I had were great, they offer many shifts (1st, 2nd, and 3rd). My supervisor was great, he provided feedback on areas to improve in and really worked with me to help hone my skills in customer service. The hardest part of the job is knowing the stories – more... of people that need help and you can not help them with their situation. The most enjoyable part of the job is the events they offer especially during customer service week. A typical day at work would be answering questions related to utilities. – less
