I am a recently retired IT specialist, from the Federal Government. I spent about 34 years in service, mostly in the IT Series.
During the last 10 years i have been involved with auction companies either in a voluntary capacity or paid capacity, Recently, i have started my own company to work with auction companies,
I am currently a contracting Office Manager, Clerk, set up, cataloguer, for this company. I go onsite to help catalogue or do some by phone. We use Auction flex in conjunction with AuctionTime and Hibid.
I have worked with this auctioneer for about 2 years, we both worked for a different company, and when he formed his own company, I contracted with him. I also do lot setup, as well as the office end of invoicing and cashier duties. I have clerked, run registration, balanced the books at the end of the auction, done shipping and invoicing. I have also done ring man duties.
I worked for Dennis Turmon as voluntary labor, to learn the business. I was in the office with his Office staff and learned how to do the clerking sheets and registration, as well as checkout at the end of the auction. Later I became paid help to work in the office
Before the auction, i worked as labor to set up lots, move equipment and clean up.
During the auction i was the inventory control, bringing up lots and handing them out. In addition, i was the clerk relief and then later on, i was primary clerking.
I have only worked one gig with this company as their clerk. They have gone to an online presence only during COVID, so they don’t need my help at the momen, but have said that they would have me back when they start going live again.
With This company I used Gavel Buddy and Hibid for their live/simulcast auctions.
