Halloween in January

By Mike Hiller

 Title: Look Under

Unwittingly So

Many Are the Stones Unturned

Within Comfort Zones

It’s Plunge day. For adrenaline junkies, endorphin aficionados, and anyone looking to ‘think local,’ step outside of their comfort zone, and support their neighborhood charity the Polar Bear Plunge is where it’s at. Every year right around MLK (Martin Luther King Jr.) day Halloween comes early for us plungers. At our event at the Brighton High School there are costumes aplenty, endless snacks and treats, and it’s always a hot coco (now) and Netflix (later) kind of day. 2020 marks American Profit Recovery’s eight (8th) year running, or rather jumping as it were.

When I was a […]

Yearly Wrap Up Call

By Sarah:

Our Year End Call is one of my favorite events here at American Profit Recovery. Every year we have a company meeting to sum up how we did the year prior. This meeting is not only filled with detailed information on how well we have performed for our clients but also celebrates individual successes as well as slideshows of pictures, memories and funny moments we have shared.

I feel like this meeting is so important for morale in the office. When you’re focusing on the goals of your own department day in and day out the big picture can get lost and being able to take some time aside and really see how big of […]

How is the debt collection industry better today?

All of the founders of American Profit Recovery have spent decades working in leadership roles at nationwide collection agencies, so we’ve seen quite a bit. All of us have at least 25-plus years working in this field and we have seen the progress that any evolving industry has seen in that period of time.

There has no doubt been tremendous development and innovation in this industry and we feel it’s all been for the good of both the businesses that hire collection agencies and the consumers that we contact.

As an industry that has always been misunderstood by many and scrutinized more than others, it’s always important to share the positive movement that takes place on a […]

Starting a Job in a New Industry

By Porsha: 

I started working at American Profit Recovery about five months ago and it is the best job that I have ever had. I have customer service experience from working at fast food restaurants and being a waitress but being a customer service rep for a collection agency is different; a good kind of different.

I was nervous at first for I knew nothing about a collection agency or the laws that they are regulated by. I hate messing up a on a job and want to always strive to do my best and I thought I would fail, but here I am and I was definitely wrong.working at a collection agency [...]

Employee Week Creates a Bond

By Angela:

Employee week is a great time of year for all involved. This was my third year and every year it has gotten better.  It encourages employees to participate in bonding activities that push our competitiveness to a new level.  This year I had the pleasure of being a team captain and got to work more closely with my fellow collectors.Best places to work in Michigan

We all worked towards one goal during the week as we were divided into different teams trying to win the big prizes. Despite this week being competitive, everyone stays professional and remembers we are all for the same reason, to help our clients […]

Number One Call Center in the Industry-Where Do We Go From Here?

We did it! We earned the number one spot on the 2018 Best Call Centers to Work For. We always knew American Profit Recovery was the best collection agency to start and build a career in the credit and collections industry, and now we have proof. We are clearly one of the best places to work in this industry and I might add, anywhere.

A Great Partnership with Real Green Systems

By Sarah:

This year was my first year attending the Real Green User’s Conference. Also called Solutions 2017. I have been working in the customer service department at American Profit Recovery since March 2013. I have really gotten to know quite a bit about Real Green and their software Service Assistance over these past few years. I have learned a lot about the ins and outs of the accounting portion of the software and also gotten the ability to train new clients that utilize the software. It gives me great pride in being able to show clients the integration that American Profit Recovery has with Service Assistance and how user friendly it really is. It makes […]

My Real Green Conference Experience

By Kaylee:

In my three years here with American Profit Recovery, I have talked to many different clients and heard many different voices. It’s been a joy to talk to clients and to learn more about them and their company, but you don’t really feel like you know someone until you meet them in person. I had the pleasure of being able to go down to Orlando, Florida and spend time at this year’s Real Green Conference. Real Green is a software service that many of our lawn care clients use to manage their accounts and seamlessly turn them over to us for collections. With this being my first time there this was a brand new […]

Proud to work here? You bet…

We’ve just been notified that we have once again been named one of the best places to work in the collection industry. This marks eight years in a row on this list. We’ve only been in business 11 years so I think that’s saying a lot. It’s a program created by industry publication insideARM.com and The Best Companies Group.2015-bptw-winners-wreath-2000x1600

I’m one of four partners and there were several things we knew right from the start that we wanted to incorporate into this collection agency when we founded it. One main goal was to create a workplace that employees could thrive in, build a career, have fun and make […]

Customer Service … In Person!

I recently had the privilege of leaving the office for part of the day to join a few of my coworkers at the New England Grows Trade Show.  Working in the Customer Service department, we are able to build relationships with clients over the phone, but it isn’t that often that we are able to get out and meet clients and potential clients face to face, so when I was offered the opportunity I jumped at it.  After the day ended I was really happy that I was able to go and wanted to share a few things about that day.
