Data Entey Operator (Current Employee) – Pawtucket, RI – May 25, 2017
A faulty system, having no recourse as to why clients are not receiving necessary food & health benefits with no support from supervisors when being the sole face of our system, and confusing, constantly-changing (hour to hour) rules make this an extremely stressful and unfair job from all perspectives. Please, someone do something about this.
