Q – You have been with SRMG for 5 months, what have you learned from the on the job experience?

A – First off, I would like to thank Community Employment for the opportunity to obtain my on the job training hours with Salt River Materials Group. In the beginning, I did not know much about this industry. With the helpful guidance from employees here at SRMG, I have grown to understand the business. I admire the determination and dedication employees have for the organization. It truly is a great company to be a part of. Everyone here has been supportive which made my transition easier. 

Q- What do you like about on the job work that you do?

A – I have learned to use computer programs like Freight Payables to enter received trucking invoices, using the OnBase Unity program to index tickets, retrieve tickets and obtain credits or debits, assist with the trucking report by cross referencing pay rates for each project number in the Command system, assist with preparing the weekly payment batch of received invoices, and efficiently operating the office equipment and directing incoming calls.

Q – What do you look forward to after your complete the program?

A – I enjoy the people I work with and provide support for. I take much pride in providing excellent customer service for the company. Once I complete the program I hope my knowledge of the business will compliment my career as an Administrative Assistant. Obtaining permanent employment within the company would be idea. I look forward to taking on more assignments and continuing my education involving administrative duties.
