Su Voeun is an Employee Service Representative/Payroll Specialist in our San Jose office. She celebrated four years with JSG in July and has been an essential factor in the great success the western region sees, year after year. Check out what she had to say when it comes to her role here at Johnson Service Group!
What did you do before JSG and how long have you been in payroll?
I worked multiple jobs as a payroll specialist as well as a data analyst where most of the roles were contract. I graduated with my Bachelors in Accounting and so payroll has just been something I’ve enjoyed doing. Right before I came to JSG, I was working as a data analyst for CISCO. I had a mutual connection with JSG due to them placing me at one of my contract roles. Excitingly enough, when that CISCO role came to an end, they asked me if I wanted to join the San Jose team as a full-time Payroll Specialist. I, of course, said yes! It meant a lot to me since I hadn’t been working in payroll for a couple of years but was so excited to get back into it and have that security of a full-time position.
What do you like about working for JSG and the San Jose office?
I love that I get to help contractors every day as well as work in a fantastic office where the people are super sweet and support one another 100 percent! I work in a group of 3 payroll specialists, and we’re always helping one another when needed and vice-versa. It’s like a big family, not only with the people here in San Jose but also with our co-workers we get to work with at corporate too. They all make my job so much easier. I admire that JSG is more like a family that focuses on supporting every member of the team.
I also love the fact that since everyone works so closely together, we never have a lack of communication. Especially with our contractors due to our on-site recruiters.
What do you want to accomplish this year?
This year we’re working on new technology to upgrade our payroll and accounting systems. I’m so excited to use the new system and see how much more it helps our processes advance.
What are some of your hobbies?
Recently I’ve taken up seeing a lot of Broadway Musicals. I just saw Aladdin, and it was spectacular! I also would say I’m a definite foodie, so I love going around and finding excellent new places to eat in the San Jose area. We love to use yelp, and it’s been helpful so far!
