Many people that apply to our jobs at Breakaway are interested in administrative work. Because we work with transportation and logistics companies there are some specific requirements we have for our admin/office workers. Many people apply to these positions and are unable to secure a job because of these specific guidelines. We’d like to use today’s blog to answer some question concerning our administrative work.
We have many admin/office positions open (just take a look at our job openings) but you must have specific qualifications to be considered for these jobs. Please take into account the 4 points below before submitting your resume.
You must have previous transportation experience
99% of the companies we hire for require their employees to have previous experience in the transportation in a similar role. These companies prefer having someone who can jump in, already knowing their system, instead of having to train new employees.
You must have strong data entry skills and high attention to detail
Many of our admin positions require you to enter some type of data into a computer system. Whether this is for billing, customer accounts, invoicing, or reports, most companies now have their own computer system in which all information is kept. We look for individuals who can type 40 words per minute and 5000 keystrokes per hour. We will test your data entry skills when you come and register with Breakaway but if you’re unsure of your skills you can visit the website www.learn2type.com and test yourself now. We also require our associates to have a high attention to detail as most of our clients are large transport companies which will require you to input large amounts of data on a daily basis, none of which can be entered into the system incorrectly.
We have many administrative positions available
Our available opportunities include:
- Billing Clerks
- Admin Operations Clerk
- Admin Team Lead
- Customer Service Reps
- Rating Clerks
- Gatehouse Clerks & many more positions added every day!
Many of our positions are on night shift
While we do offer admin positions on days and afternoons, many of our positions are on night shifts – this is especially true for billing clerks. For these night positions generally the buses do do not run during the shift times so it is a strong asset if you have your own vehicle.
