Customer support representative

Customer Support Representative (Current Employee)
Dayton, OH

I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time for more than a year

ProsThis was my first job after graduating from college. They had a range of entry level positions available that they were recruiting for that peaked my interest. Now that I've been working here for about 2 years I see that there is room for internal growth because they promote from within. The company also has added perks like corporate sports leagues and events.

ConsThe shifts vary and are not all 8-5. However some people might prefer working later or earlier shifts so there is flexibility.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Simple. Thoughtless. People make it enjoyable.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds

ProsAs a part-time employee the management are extremely flexible around my college schedule. The cafeteria serves pretty good food at a decent cost. Working on the bench it is a lot of repetition with the occasional problem to solve. The people definitely make the job more enjoyable.

ConsThe building is extremely bland. The no tobacco policy is VERY strictly enforced, and you will get fired if you test positive for it.

Great company that recognizes hard work.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time

ProsI have worked at Reynolds and Reynolds for nearly 8 years and have grown a lot in my time here. Hired just out of college, I wasn't experienced in a corporate work environment. I appreciate the extensive training provided and the open door policy with my management chain. I have received several awards in the time I've been employed and I appreciate that they are willing to recognize hard work.

ConsThe recruiting process can sometimes be long, but in my opinion this reflects the company's commitment to ensuring they are hiring the best person for the job.

Challenging but also rewarding

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Kettering, OH

I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI have had a great career with Reynolds with many various job opportunities. Excellent products and excellent customer support. A great work environment at the Kettering office. The Body Shop is a plus. The people at this company are great to work with.

ConsThere is a lot of red tape. It can be challenging just trying to accomplish some of the day to day requirements.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your managers to make more decisions. Everything does not need to be approved and reviewed by upper level management.

No one seems happy there. They are all unhappy working for this company

I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time for less than a year

ProsThey hire young people and they throw events outside a lot. You can play games after work. They also provide beer.

ConsThey want to pay everyone as little as possible. Im not sure about other departments, but we had a some decent turn over in mine.

Advice to Senior ManagementI am not sure if this is something that is fixable at this point.
