Freight Pay Specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary, Alberta – 8 July 2015
A pretty typical day at work would be to audit incoming invoices for any rate discrepancies to look for cost savings. Speaking with vendors to clear up any issues regarding payments. Calling Vendors to double check any errors on invoices that were submitted.
Managements presence wasn't always there due to their busy day which allowed the employees to work on their work own accord more often.
Co-workers were usually great to work with and had a good work environment initially but slowly some co-workers made it difficult to want to continue to work there.
The hardest part of the job was when our payments to the vendors was overdue and there wasn't any explanation I could really give them due to many software issues that caused delayed on our end.
The most enjoyable part was the freedom management gave as long as we were doing our work which allowed us not feel like we were constantly monitored.
Had Pizza lunch parties a couple times a month

I am busy all day at work. There is not linearity with Hewlett Packard. One day I could be working 4 hrs and the other day I could be working 12 to 13 hrs. It used to be a real good company to work for but more and more benefits and employee appreciation depreciates.
