Name: Amanda Wilder
Title: Payroll Distribution Specialist
Been with LBMC Employment Partners: Since 2012
Background: Before joining the LBMC Employment Partners team, Amanda Wilder was a stay-at-home mom. During this time, she began playing pool with one of the managers at LBMC Employment Partners. As her children grew older, Amanda felt the desire to get back into the workforce. Amanda took a temporary position filling in for someone on maternity in LBMC Employment Partners' Brentwood office. Amanda ended up staying on full time, and loved having a permanent spot on LBMC Employment Partners' team.
Current Role: As a Payroll Distribution Specialist, Amanda receives checks and reports after payroll has been processed and ensures that they are shipped and delivered in time for payday. With payroll coming in all day on a daily basis, Amanda verifies all information, collects checks for each client, and makes sure they are distributed correctly. On average, Amanda handles between 25,000 and 30,000 checks a month. While Amanda works diligently to make certain that nothing is amiss, sometimes issues do arise. Yet, when these rare occurrences crop up, Amanda’s firm grasp of her duties and problem solving capabilities quickly resolve any issues. In addition to being a payroll distribution specialist, Amanda also coordinates LBMC Employment Partners’ social hours, places new employees on teams, and helps out with any odd jobs around the office whenever she can.
Why LBMC Employment Partners Stands Out: As far as Amanda is concerned, LBMC Employment Partners is the best company she has ever worked for. “They take care of you — Sharon and Ron (LBMC Employment Partners’ owners). They make sure you have what you need, from time off to anything else that ensures you are taken care of. Our managers and coworkers work together and help each other out as well. Everyone does what they are supposed to do. From our clients to the people who work here, it’s really just about the people.”
Unique Factors of Your Work Environment: When asked why she enjoys coming to work every day, Amanda heavily emphasized that LBMC Employment Partners is a fantastic company. “LBMC Employment Partners is very family oriented. That’s what the company has become — a family. We work closely with each other, everyone takes care of their responsibilities, and you can rely on others for help. It also helps that we all have a good time together.”
Personal: Amanda has been happily married to her husband Tom for 17 years. Together, they have two daughters, Jewell, 15, and Alexis, 12, a Jack Russell Terrier, and a cat. When Amanda isn’t hard at work making sure her clients get paid on time, you can find her shooting a mean game of pool. One of her first memories is of a pool table, and she’s always been drawn to them. Amanda has been playing for over 20 years, participates in tournaments, and actually met Tom during a game. Amanda’s daughters are also big fans of the game. Jewell played in her first tournament when she was 8, and Alexis is anxious to get started. Aside from being avid pool players, Amanda and her family enjoy going on hikes and being outdoors. One of her favorite trails is Fiery Gizzard. It may be a tough hike, but according to Amanda, it is so worth it.
