I did enjoy what I was doing, but it was seasonal.
Group Enrollment Associate (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – June 3, 2018
I was doing group enrollment, which is enrolling/updating new and current employees for groups. I learned how to be more efficient on the phone. My supervisor would come around daily to see if I had any questions about anything unusual on an enrollment. The workplace itself was very laid back, but it was high stress with the goals you had to meet as a temp just coming in. I felt that I was getting to where I was meeting my goals about the time my term ended. There was a lot to learn and so each enrollment was different and a lot of policies and procedures to learn. Some enrollments took much longer than others, so you couldn't always meet your goals.
They had a cafeteria on site, which was nice since you only got a 30 minute lunch break
with the previous ceo, the company was dated; with the new ceo change is coming and moving in the right direction. management needs to be more supportive and understanding of the hard work employees put into doing their jobs and the time and energy it takes to get there. with the new ceo it will be more personable more teamwork oriented. the little people are not acknowledged in anyway for the hard work they do. with the new ceo hopefully upper management will change and become more approachable, more empathetic to employees. new ceo should be a role model for management in how to approach or engage with employees because everyone is important not just management.
lack of support or training, lack of management support, non understanding of the job the little people do to get projects completed successfully
A typical day at work was busy with little down time. As a temporary membership auditor we worked at our own place but were required to meet a minimum number of applications processed while upheld quality levels. Management was helpful, understanding, and professional. Workplace culture was professional and friendly, and attire was business casual for anyone under management, and jeans were allowed to be worn on Friday's. The hardest part of the job was quickly learning company guidelines and procedures to ensure members were given accurate policy information. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a strong team that was always willing to help.
I absolutely love everything about working at BCBSKS. The corporate culture is the best I have ever seen, and everyone that I work with appreciates the benefits of working here as much as I do. Independent thinking and creative problem solving are openly embrassed.
Excellent health and retirement benefits, opportunity for growth, employee recognition/merit increases, paid volunteer opportunities, great cafeteria
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – August 22, 2017
BCBSKS has a corporate culture that is stuck in the 1950's. It is not a fresh, current culture. There are policies and procedures for everything, which makes sense, since they are an insurance company,
Manager (Current Employee) – Topeka, KS – June 26, 2017
BCBSKS cares about its employees and offers many ways to grow your career. There are advancement opportunities and leadership training programs to guide you as you progress.

A typical day includes meetings, lots of email, desk/phone time. Lots of management. The hardest part of the job is getting people out of the way so you can do your job. The most enjoyable part is the people working along side you.
