Contractor (Former Employee) – Bedford, TX – October 12, 2017
In my opinion point-of-sale is difficult as the market is limited to consumer outlets as opposed to software that could be used on any office or home computer. Also, there is much set-up to be done in too short of time for too little money.
To be more specific every product or service provided by the client to their customers has to be entered in the database, the users trained on their new system, the equipment installed etc.. Often the installation has to be preformed after the outlet is closed and before they open in the morning. A bar and grill might be open until 2am and open for breakfast at 7am.
My recommendation was not positive as that is the nature of the business not because Radiant was bad.
It would actually be a good place for someone new to working in technology that would like to be routinely tried in preparation for I.T. work.
An individual restaurant/bar staff gets stressed when swapping out the P.O.S system. Imagine the stress when an entire office building looses network connectivity, the primary database for the corporation suddenly stops accepting transactions, or somebody opens an email with a virus that spreads to every machine.
Point of Sale is not a bad place to experience not in the classroom stress.
You'll get plenty of typing and clicking experience.
Account Specialist (Former Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – September 17, 2017
At Radiant Systems, I worked alongside folks that were top-notch and not afraid to share ideas, share knowledge, help each other succeed. The managers were Happy-Go-Lucky and helped to create a FUN-JOB environment.
With ping pong and pool tables, walking trails and bright open work spaces - you could not help but want to go to work here. I learned much about downstream re-sellers and Microsoft SharePoint while working here. Manger was great. Wish I could have stayed here forever. Stress-free for sure.
Administrative Assistance (Former Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – June 1, 2017
Radiant Systems was the Agency that hired me to work as a contractor for AT&T. The Supervisors I worked for at AT&T were good to me. I did a lot of Data Entry in Oracle ordering supplies for the Technicians that were going to install or replace parts in the towers. I also did a lot of uploading documents and pictures in Siterra and Filenet.
Good working environment for AT&T
Radiant Systems really were not very attentive to me even if I was doing a good job for them and ATT

They are great at sending a check, but are bad at almost everything else. They do not communicate or respond to concerns. They do not advocate for their people. My performance was great, but Radiant never chose to attempt to get me a raise, despite repeated requests to do so.
Field Technician - Consultant (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – November 10, 2014
A typical day consisted of procuring and upgrading IT equipment throughout the Florida state. I learned how to create multiples ways to hard wiring. The hardest part was seeing an end to the completed project. The most enjoyable part was taking some time to teach the new guy and knowing he was going to do it right.
Associate Buyer (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 24, 2014
Overall, the experience was not bad. There were little things that I was expecting like direct deposit and a bit more conversations with the account manager. But overall I didn't have any major problems.
Senior Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – August 3, 2014
Radiant systems was one of the best work places. I worked an 8 to 5 Accounts Payable job-Monday through Friday. I went in as a data entry clerk and quickly moved up to being the team lead of the accounts payable department. Radiant Systems management believed in growth. When one worked hard, they were rewarded. Hard work was noticed and appreciated and this in return, resulted in hard working employees that went to great lengths to attain whatever the goals were for the company.
Half day (Fridays) and "Happy Hour" by the patio- Got to know individuals better.
