I had a friend ask me once why I decided to work in collections because my field of study was completely different. I said, my very first interview with, who is now my manager, career growth, the team, and flexibility of schedule. All of it.
Walking into a field with little to no knowledge about collections, I learned as time went on the importance of a collector and the impact he or she can make in a consumer’s life. My second interview came around and I was convinced to take that step forward and learn more about the agency and what it has to offer me.
Aside from the competitive pay, bonuses, and commissions, I love what we call “Flex Friday”. In other words, having a 3-day weekend without using any PTO. A great way to save PTO while enjoying some time off to yourself. I mean does it get any better than that? I have been doing this since I first started my career here a year ago and I am the only collector who has flexed every Friday possible… ha-ha. You will find the best schedule that fits you here.
Team environment has always had a huge impact in any work field I entered, and I can say I have one of the best teams in collections. The support for continued growth is unmatched. I am excited to see the next milestone I accomplish and my future here at American Profit Recovery.
Don’t be afraid of trying a different field as it may be the career destined for you.
