Accounting/Collections Assistant (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – February 24, 2017
While I was there I was allowed to advance with ease. Salary is very competitive for this area. Commute into job can be problematic however worth it. Great place to work especially during conventions and staff meet and greet. Family atmosphere.
Friendly, helpful and productive working environment. People work together to solve issues.
Network & Systems Operation Intern (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – April 1, 2015
A typical work day started with socializing with co-workers in the break room. I then checked the ticketing system for any issues that occurred between the time I had left the office the day prior and when I get into work that morning. These tickets most often took less than fifteen minutes so I would check in with my boss or others in the department if they needed assistance with anything. I made it known that if anyone in the department needed help with anything, I would be willing. The most enjoyable part of the job was not only making friends with many I had worked with but also shadowing people from the networking and help-desk sides of the I.T. department. I was able to really get a sense of what each person did on a day to day basis and see what I liked or where I would fit.
End up making friends with co-workers in and out of your department, almost never eat alone, if you can't figure something out others are 100% willing to help
Some days there was too much downtime, other days there was no downtime at all
Great work life balance but management was unprofessional and chose favorites
Data Entry Specialist (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – August 17, 2014
I loved most of the people I worked with unfortunately there was too much favoritism and cliques which effected work flow and the job atmosphere in the customer service department. Some of the management was unprofessional (late to meetings, late on finishing projects, often not in the office) and wasn't very willing to listen to suggestions on improving the work flow. Also several management positions were a revolving door which I think is a testament to the management team and the director. The director hired several people from her church who were afraid to speak up about different things in the office even if it was beneficial to the overall company/department in fear of their jobs. Also people didn't see a point to apply for the positions that did come available because they felt although the positions were open that management already had people in their mind who they would hire.

Manager, Member Engagement (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – March 7, 2014
Days at SHRM go by quickly - many strategic meetings, connecting with the SHRM members, planning and implementing programs and events.
In my role, I was able to connect with hundreds of HR professionals seeking information about the profession. I communicated through multiple channels, including social media, email, webinar, phone and in person through presentations and events.
The opportunity to work at SHRM was valuable. I learned a lot about how the hub of HR operates and felt that I was able to contribute and positively impact the HR community through my work.
Information Technology Staff Assistant (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – January 23, 2014
This by far was the best place I have ever been employed. They made you feel like family and the atmosphere was energizing and safe. The hardest part of this job was leaving. I enjoyed every bit of my time here and made life long relationships. The best part of the job was knowing who and what you were working for. They made you want to work to support the mission.
