Solutions Specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 April 2017
This company wants yes-men. Nothing more. This company will bend over backwards for the all mighty dollar, and at the same time will throw you under a bus for a dollar more. I wouldn't recommend working in this company if you value something other than the all mighty dollar.
Collections Administrator/Administration (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 March 2017
Your typical day at work is to indicate which clients are due depending on their terms, which clients are due for a reminder or call and which clients have exceeded 75 days. After determining which clients are which, prepare the emails and create a list of clients to call. Wait for cheques to come in and cross off clients that have paid.
With this job, I have learnt to be patient and to have tough skin especially in this industry.
Management is pretty understanding and thoughtful when it comes to your personal life and help reach your goals to grow within the company.
The hardest part of the job is calling clients that you know that are in financial struggle letting them know that they have outstanding invoices that they need to pay. And having to deal with really sarcastic emails all the time. Some clients feel like they have the need to be sarcastic even when you just send them an email asking if they have received their invoice.
The most enjoyable part of this job is management and the co-workers and relationships you make when working.
