    Chad Wells gave props to Erica

    Many employees get upset when they think their pay is incorrect. Erica does an outstaning job researching such claims and explaining in a way that the employee understands that thier pay is actually indeed correct. In the rare instance though that payroll does incorrectly pay someone, Erica quickly and calmly corrects the problem for the employee so they can go about thier day having no doubt that AFN has thier back. Way to go Erica!
