LIFE AT SMARTCO
We strive to cultivate an environment where all employees can do their best work. Our offices are relaxed and friendly environments where no one is a stranger. Employees participate in company sponsored contests, cook-offs, and get together for “off the clock” events. SmartCo’s dress code is business casual, and free healthy snacks are provided in the break rooms. Our benefit package is competitive for a company of our size, and we are always looking for ways to improve. Employee feedback is taken seriously, and everyone has a voice.
FROM OUR TEAM...
The most interesting part about working for SmartCo is while there is consistency, there is also variation. There are always new items that come up, so things are never monotonous. The company has been steadily growing and that is because the service we offer is a legitimate benefit to all of its users. All employees have a voice and are heard, so that promotes buy-in from the employee perspective, since you know your input is sincerely considered. Some of the most valuable benefits that SmartCo provides is the 401K plan with company matching, end-of-year bonus, flexible work schedule, free coffee and snacks, vacation time accrual, casual attire and ability to work remotely when necessary. These are benefits that are often lacking or non-existent in many companies these days.
I genuinely enjoy working for SmartCo. I work with a great group of people and have been able to build friendships amongst my coworkers. I love the opportunities that I have to grow within the organization. The work/home balance is something that I have not had in previous companies. Being able to have a flexible schedule has made being a working mom, with an infant, so much easier. I truly enjoy talking with people from all over the United States and other countries. I am challenged on a daily basis and look forward to coming to work.
What makes working for SmartCo so interesting to me is the rate in which we are growing and the opportunity to step up to help overcome the daily challenges that come with that rapid growth. Due to our rapid growth, there is room to grow within the company. Personally, I have grown significantly, both personally and professionally, during my tenure here. The one thing that people find interesting about my position is the scale of the information that we process every single day. It ensures that no two days are the same. SmartCo has always been a company which is service oriented. In my role, I am tasked with determining the company’s technical direction which is very rewarding because the abilities and reliability of our systems is directly related to the level of service we provide to our customers. Those seeking a position with SmartCo shouldn’t underestimate their abilities, should show their enthusiasm and, if hired, be willing to step up to any challenge they are presented.
Working/Interning for SmartCo Services hasn’t just been a job for me these past three years, it has been a full life experience. I started right out of high school as an inexperienced teenager with much to learn in life. SmartCo took me and molded me into the person I am today by giving me an opportunity to learn and the experiences needed to succeed in life. What I enjoy most about working for SmartCo is the work environment. Everyone here is welcoming and supportive and the executives and managers push you to get the best possible work out of you, they help you find your true inner-potential.
The most interesting aspect of my time with SmartCo has been watching and being involved with the company’s growth and having input on new products, programs, reports and data verification. Seeing these projects expand, adapt and grow over time is very rewarding. When I am asked the question of what I do for work, people are surprised how much is involved in creating stock orders and all the accompanying reports provided to parts departments, dealership managers and auto manufacturers. I feel that my role helps to achieve SmartCo’s goals by the tasks I complete to validate the accuracy of the information presented to customers in the automotive industry and beyond to other businesses. One of the most rewarding benefits that SmartCo provides to their employees is the 401K benefit plan which includes very generous employer contributions that sets SmartCo apart from other companies. I would strongly suggest that any new employee participate in this benefit to the fullest possible level. You will find this very beneficial! For anyone looking to secure a position with SmartCo, I would suggest that a job seeker determine if they bring unique skills, personality, abilities and knowledge to the job. If they do, they will find a rewarding career at SmartCo.
The best part about working for SmartCo, is knowing there is a vast resource of information/knowledge about the industry in the building. Somebody, somewhere in the company knows the answer to a question you may have, and can explain it thoroughly as they've been in the same spot, and figured out the best way to perform a process or handle an issue. New, improved processes are constantly being developed, providing both employees and customers easier, more streamlined access to help them do their jobs, both at SmartCo and in the Parts Department better while utilizing the system.
