Machine Operator (Former Employee) – New Rochelle, NY – January 19, 2018
Typical day at benchmark , Will start out with a morning meeting that will last roughly 5 to 15 minutes if not more . Management will allocate the orders for the people to pick, then a separate meeting for the people that only speaks Spanish there's a language barrier there .I typically was overworked and the communication there was very poor.
Some breakfast is provided some days free lunch and on site barbecue

Request For Proposal Coordinator (Former Employee) – New Rochelle, NY – January 18, 2018
I passed on another offer and accepted theirs only to be told after 4 days they were restructuring the department and my position was eliminated. The management was rude and spoke down to just about everyone. The owner said she had no desire to be introduced to me until I worked there over 6 months ( in front of me) Everyone I met while I was there had been there less than two years. There seemed to be no longevity and everyone seemed to walk on eggs shells.
Depending on where you sit...nice view
Everything. Belive what you see here, I didn't and learned the hard way
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – New Rochelle, NY – May 25, 2017
Owners attempt to rule with an iron fist. They curse at and belittle the employees. Pay is sub-par. The company feels like a social experiment to test the limits of how much stress an individual an endure.
Assistant (Current Employee) – New Rochelle, NY – August 1, 2016
Typical day at work includes bad management, frequent layoffs, and having to listen to the CEO berate and belittle whomever crosses her path. Layoffs are so frequent you may compare it to any reality show in which someone is voted off, not given a rose, or "fired". Also, do not be surprised when you are picking up the slack for someone who has been let go and you are now trying to manage 3 roles.
Have experience and be prepared if you fit for the job
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – New Rochelle, NY – June 15, 2016
I worked as a nighttime employee for Benchmark Education Company as a non traditional Data entry clerk. The company didn't provide me the proper job training to perform the tasks that I needed to perform and then I was laid off and release.One of the Managers has a thick Spanish accent it was hard to decipher want he was trying to say in English. I honestly felt that I wasn't given a chance to improve or excel after I was laid off but oh well it happens.
friendly staff good working environment
Provide you benefits but it doesnt make no sense if you're a temp employee working the night shift
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (Former Employee) – Pelham, NY – May 17, 2015
I worked here over 10 years ago and its not an easy place to work. Nonetheless, you get to wear many hats and grow career wise. Salary and benefits are a mixed bag. Conduct of one of the owners is down right deplorable which borders on the stuff lawsuits are made of. Fortunately my contact with this person was not too regular and there were times we actually got along. However those who she interacted with regularly were under a lot of pressure. Many of my colleagues were cool people to work for. The business systems were reasonable. If management could get it together and treat all employees with respect this company would really go places. As it stands it frequently shoots itself in the foot.
good place to learn the industry, good colleagues
better approach from management especially from one owner in particular
Director of Professional Development, Author (Former Employee) – Pelham, NY – March 20, 2015
No day was ever typical. Days might involve writing technical or children's material to publish; or traveling across country to work a sales conference; or present a week-long training about teaching methods using our material. I learned to think on my feet and work in a fast-paced environment because we were creating new product to get to the sales force. My co-workers worked as hard as I did and we all took critical review of each other's work in order to improve the product. We became such a great team that we could almost complete one another's thoughts. The hardest part of the job was the travel. The most enjoyable part of the job was my team of colleagues.
