More From Our Leadership Development and Team Building Conference

By Dave Yenglin :

I was fortunate enough to attend this conference along with three other members of the APR team.  I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, as I hadn’t attended any conference of this sort in many years, but immediately boredom came to mind.  It couldn’t have been further from the truth, the speakers for this conference did a wonderful job of presenting the material.

It wasn’t your typical presentation of someone just reading from a booklet what someone else wrote.  They were very good at getting everyone involved and being very interactive, obviously this makes sense given the title of the conference.

One of the first things that I learned from this that I hadn’t […]

Happy Anniversary APR !

It is amazing to think that we started this company 10 years ago.  On one hand, it seems like yesterday and on the other, it seems like a lot longer than that!  I distinctly remember the day we first walked into an empty office space having just left our jobs.  The day was September 13th, 2004…..

I remember because it was my wife’s birthday that day and I got to tell her that her husband is now unemployed and starting a brand new business from scratch.  Happy birthday, honey… we have no income !!    She knew, as did I, that there was no doubt that we would do great things with this company.  It was […]

Joe Kocur Charity Softball Game

By Joe Witkowski

I would like to say thank you to Jeff Spurgess for giving me tickets to the Joe Kocur Charity Softball game. It was great to see one of my favorite Red Wings, Darren McCarty, out there playing.

It seems that the older I get the less I follow sports. However, when I was joe kocur blog picyounger I was a big fan of the Detroit Red Wings. I would watch all of their games and followed the team when they won the Presidents Cup in 1996 only to lose to Colorado in the finals. Also, I followed the team when they won the Stanley Cup over […]

Who You Know Can Help You Get Hired

By Tricia Renee

When I hire out the tuck-pointing on my house, I will call a referral from a neighbor. When I pick a stylist to deal with my hair, I ask around first. When I invest, I want the best. I want someone I trust.

Businesses are the same way, it turns out. When they need someone to join the team and do some lifting, they agree, it’s just better having someone who comes recommended.

At American Profit Recovery, our team is made up of a lot of referred staff. I believe this is a big reason why APR is such a great place to work. It’s so great that we want our friends working here and […]

A Look Back at a Long Career in Collections

I am writing this blog as a reflection of my time at American Profit Recovery and to tell you some of the reasons why it is a great place to work.

First, I hope you have chosen to use the summer to rest, relax and even disconnect a bit. We all need to reflect on our recent successes and failures as well as the challenges ahead. These moments are vital to careful planning and future successes.

The staff here at American Profit Recovery has been of great help to me and their camaraderie have made every day worthwhile. Further, the company has a profound mission to make a difference and change the fundamental way in which a […]

Collection Agency Efforts Echo Those of Niagara Falls Preservation

Recently my family and I visited Niagara Falls for a quick weekend vacation. Being a Buffalo native growing up so close to the falls, I always took for granted what an amazing feat of nature they really are.

I always knew that people have harnessed Niagara Falls to provide electricit048y, but never knew that those efforts are also helping to preserve the falls. Left alone, the falls would erode at a rate of 10 feet per year. Because people have been diverting much of the Niagara River that would eventually reach the summit, the erosion rate is now only about 1 foot per year. In fact, they estimate that […]

Collection Agencies Do More than Collect Debt

Did you know that collection agencies do much more than collect debt? They are also involved in their communities through charities; they go through extensive training programs and are well versed in the laws pertaining to collections.

Job Creation

In the United States, collection agencies accounted for over 302,000 jobs in 2011, according to an ACA International survey by Ernst & Young. These employees helped their agencies to recover a total of $54.9 billion to the economy.

Training

Most reputable agencies belong to ACA International, which has a focus on training, laws and financial education. They also have their own “Code of Ethics” and Collectors pledge which goes above and beyond actual laws to ensure consumers are dealt with […]
