Get in and get out
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJanuary 11, 2018
Not a place to make a career unless work is your life. If anyone intends to work at republic, i would encourage them to make it a temporary job to get the experience/job title and get out. Systems are outdated resulting with undue stress of systems or applications failing. Most hours are spent utilizing outdated systems(excel). Republic is centralizing a lot of processes but lack systems communication between corporate and the field. Also, job security does not exist which is also why you should not expect to be around longer than a few years. On the flip side, upward mobility exists because of people leaving or getting fired.

Overwhelming and stressful work requirements
Customer Resource Representative (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 10, 2018
Typical day at work is throwing your headset on and logging on and having an auto-ring through answering system. I never realized how crazy people can be when it comes to their trash. at slowest times there can be 2-3 minutes between calls. Most calls there have ever been since I have been there is about 4,000+ calls in queue waiting to be answered. Most managers are wonderful and willing to help you succeed, but the strict set schedules for breaks, and lunches and the goals that are required to be met are somewhat overwhelming. You're unable to go to bathroom without it hurting productivity and adherence. For the most part the workplace can be pretty positive, but dealing with customers who scream at you and use profanity for something that is not your fault takes a toll on you. I definitely won't be looking for any other call center positions unless it would be data entry and not answering phones.

HRIS Analyst (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJanuary 10, 2018
I have many job opportunities with this company over the years. You can go as far as you would like with this company. The company has changed hands since I left, so I am unsure how it is to work there now.

DIVISION ACCOUNTANT (Former Employee) –  Roosevelt, WAJanuary 9, 2018
I really enjoyed the people that I worked with. Accounting was challenging in a corporate environment. Heavy work load, lots of Excel work. Reconciling multiple systems used for accounting that did not talk to each other. There was a tight closing period of three days. Never a dull moment. Did Balance Sheet reconciliations and assisted my boss as needed such as research, Approved invoices in a system called epro. Monitored Problems with Accrued Accounts payable. Prepared the JE entries for closing.
Pros
Good benefits, great people to work with
Cons
Un Intregrated Accounting Systems

Disorganized, zero training provided
Territory Account Representative (Former Employee) –  Charlottesville, VAJanuary 9, 2018
From day one, there was no training provided, with the exception of online lessons. Was tossed out into sales territory with no training on software program, territory or waste and recycling products. Lack of training equaled company layoffs. Culture is very "operations versus sales" mentality, no cohesiveness in offices. Lack of accountability I believe is key to lack of success.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Lack of training and accountability.

Data Entry Specialist (Current Employee) –  Chandler, AZJanuary 9, 2018
The job itself is fun and easy once trained. Being able to sit and work alone is the best part of the job. However the hours and commute take a toll after a while.
