    I have been working at Heartland Payment Systems full-time (More than a year)


    This used to be a great place to work. They cared about their employees and their clients. They did a lot to make sure you were happy and in return able to do your best work for the clients.


    After Heartland was bought by Global Payments, everything tumbled downhill. Suddenly, we didn't matter. Lays offs and budget cuts have ruined any morale that Heartland had left. In return, employees aren't doing their best work and it's affecting the clients.

    Face to face meeting in temporary office space. I used the business cards of my previous employment history to tell the story of my success. He really liked this different approach instead of just reciting my resume.
