Came Back, so it must be worth it
Sales Administrator (Current Employee) –  Riverhead, NYOctober 23, 2018
This is my second round with Paraco and I am glad I came back. My days are very active between reports, trainings and interactions with other departments. Managers are available for assistance when needed.

Horrible, depressing, and stressful
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Saugerties, NYSeptember 21, 2018
CSR training is horrible. Your managers don't listen to your concerns or ideas and will use it against you and say you are insubordinate. Everyday managers change the rules/policies in how to correctly do your job making it nearly impossible to understand or keep up and being that everyone is trained differently, you will never get the right answer and if you ask a manager, they are even more incompetent. Managers will make your life and job difficult and have no idea how to motivate their team and will rarely grant time off as they are always short staffed because they can never keep staff.

Good to work for, excellent benefits
Sales (Current Employee) –  New YorkAugust 7, 2018
In my opinion, Paraco has been great to work for. The pay is competitive with the market for where I live. The health insurance is EXCELLENT, cheaper and much better coverage than any of my previous employers. Paraco has had some hiccups while they grow, which the company is taking ownership of and working to improve. You absolutely must be ready to work hard, but there is room to grow as the company does.
Pros
Pay, benefits, career growth
Cons
lack of policy, communication between departments

the job for you
Dock Worker (Former Employee) –  Bay Shore, NYJuly 25, 2018
A typical day at Paraco is you always have overtime and you have little to none supervision. I learned that Paraco is going to number one in long island and pay there drivers good money and have good benefits while paying the back bone of the company (dock workers) basically minimum wage. The hardest part of the job is having to work under the sun rain or snow, and lifting 80 plus pounds over your head. The most enjoyable part at Paraco is that everyone sticks together, everyone lies for eachother.

Fast paced but rewarding work environment
Marketing Director (Current Employee) –  Rye Brook New YorkMarch 13, 2018
It is an honor to work with a very talented leadership team at Paraco. They are always willing to move you around the company to match your skills and to keep you happy. There are many opportunities for growth in any position of the company and every few weeks promotions occur. I work closely with the Armentano family(owners) every day and they are personable, wonderful, business people that treat you like family and care about your well being. I would highly recommend Paraco for a great place to work that includes decent pay, great benefits, stability and a great team to work with.
Pros
You will learn a ton
Cons
Company is growing super fast and the processes and systems need to be upgraded

Great place to grow personally and professionally
Business Development (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 12, 2018
I've been working for Paraco for more than a year. I enjoy coming to work every day and having a new opportunity to provide Paraco customers with a reliable source of energy from one of the best companies in the industry. As an industry leader, Paraco will continue to grow and have growing pains, but our dedicated leadership team shows everyone at the company the light at the end of the tunnel. This is a great place to grow as a professional with a growing company. Along with that, you have to be dedicated to the Paraco vision and be a hard-working person to have success here.
Pros
leadership team, learning opportunities, upward mobility

Miserable work environment
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Bohemia, NYFebruary 6, 2018
It’s a call center. Managers make you bring in doctors note if you call out or take time off. It’s pathetic when you’re entitled to paid time off. They don’t pay enough to have people on the phone cursing at you. They make you ask for surveys.
Pros
Bagel days
Cons
Horrible hours

Summary of a day at Work at Paraco
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Bohemia, NYMay 27, 2016
Answer a all inbound calls from customers and other departments. Assist customers with the scheduling of delivers and service calls. Correspond with Dispatch to send technicians out on emergency calls , process payments from customers that come into the location and over the phone.

Management also has special projects at certain times that you will have to complete while maintaining the responsibilities listed above . The atmosphere is great; standard call center; high positive friendly energy all around.

Hardest part is not being able to help all customers out based on the guidelines of the company
