    Pros

    Very organized with good systems in place to keep things running smoothly. Constant flow of work so feasible to advance your position if you can bring in more accounts. Good people working hard.

    Cons

    Need Better Training Program! Allow proper time for training so hire before busy season. This is why they tend to hire people who already have ecperience but potentially missing out on great applicants. Busy season barely gives time for snack break.

    Advice to Management

    This job requires multitasking and ability to stay focused on work amongst constant interruptions.
    It's fast paced and not for everyone. May want to do personality test before hiring. Escrow training should be written down so trainee has notes they can add to. Needs to be hands on, rather than watching over the shoulder of trainer. Screen print so small you really can't see well unless your sitting in chair, proper distance from screen. Should have order in how your teaching opening and processing files and software. Have training timeline. Ensure they focus on one item at a time, don't jump around topics and overwhelm them. Give new hires chance to absorb it all with practice. Executed properly you should have a well trained, confident employee in three weeks time.
