Meet Josh…Another “Winning” PCH Employee!

Hello PCH Fans!

I’m here to tell you about Josh S., one of our dedicated employees who makes the PCH world go round.  For almost a year and a half, Josh has been working as a Contest Analyst in our
Promotion Development Department handling prize fulfillment for all of our lucky winners.

Prize fulfillment involves ordering prizes for our contests and making sure those prizes get to the rightful winners. Josh handles all different prize amounts for mostly all of the PCH properties including PCH.com,PCHGames,PCHslots,PCH.com and even the PCH Fan Pages on Facebook! That’s a lot of winners!  And not only does Josh fulfill cash prizes, he also manages the fulfillment of gift cards that are awarded.  From big prizes to small, Josh fulfills almost all!

Once someone wins a prize, it is up to Josh to confirm the win and make sure the lucky user receives it.  In most cases, winners are sent their prizes a few weeks after they win without any communication needed from Josh’s team.  However, there are times when Josh gets to communicate with our users, and he finds that to be the most rewarding thing about his job.  Josh says, “My favorite part about working at PCH is being able to give back to our members who enter our contests and getting the chance to hear from past winners about how winning has helped them.”

Of course, Josh doesn’t fulfill ALL of our PCH prizes.  As our fans know, winners of larger prizes will either be surprised by the Prize Patrol in person, or may need to complete certain documents before being awarded their prizes.  We will NEVER notify a winner via telephone or text message about their winnings, but on very few occasions, emails are sent.  In those emails, we will NEVER ask the winner for any financial information or social security number and NEVER require any fee for a winner to claim the prize .

When asked if anything strange or unexpected has happened on the job during his time working at PCH, Josh explained that he has received quite a few strange reactions from winners when they are notified of their winnings.  “I once received a call from a winner that did not believe that they had won, so they pretended to be a law enforcement agent.” He told me, “Later that day the same winner called back and was very apologetic after finding out that the prize was real and that they were in fact a winner.”

That’s hilarious! It’s so great to know that our fans are truly surprised when they find out they are winners, no matter what the prize is!

Josh is a hardworking and amiable employee that we’re so happy to have in Promotion Development.  He is a native New Yorker who studied Management at Dowling College on Long Island.  Outside of PCH, Josh enjoys playing sports and rooting on his favorite teams, traveling and spending times with friends and family.

We’re so thankful to have Josh here at Publishers Clearing House.  Why don’t you say hello to him in the comments below, and let him know how thankful you are that he’s with us, too!

Until next time friends,

Genevieve P.

Well this gets me excited about winning and signing up for prizes and if I do not win I can say at least I tried and and waiting to sign up for the next time. Josh sure sounds like a great employee. He sure does up and beyond to satisfy The customers. I bet if Josh had a different job working somewhere else he would still do an awesome job satisfying the customers. Thumbs up to PCH And 2 Josh for doing an awesome job!!!

Hi! Glad to “meet you” Josh. I have to say I was skeptical when I won too. I trust PCH, just not the scammers out there. I don’t think I could do your job..hmmm someone is going to win a laptop….hmmm I need that…and I work here so I can’t win it! Nope I couldn’t do it, but I am GLAD you can! Thank you for a job well done. :)

Hi Josh,

It’s nice to meet you. I have a question and it sounds like you are the person to ask. I recently won an instant win in the Prize Pursuit game on facebook. I was so happy to win! My question is when it told me I had won an instant prize it said it was a $100.00 on the instant win page it said to click on the link below to claim your prize and I did. When it went to the next page it said I had won a $50 instant win. It also said that if I had any questions about my win and it had a link to the pch customer questions and answer page. I tried to click onto the link and ask about my win and that it had said it was a $100 but the link wouldn’t work. I later went to that page but I couldn’t find anything about the Prize Pursuit instant win game. The first week of August I received my check of $50. Thanks so much please let me know if you can clarify my question and what may have happened, it was a little confusing.

Good for Josh. However after years of buying your products I have never won any prizes. Considering all the rip-offs when it comes to notifying people they are winners, only to find that they are not winners, but simply on a long list of people that MIGHT win if they their name is selected….. They also want money…of course it makes no difference if you send money or not…..etc. as one never wins, but that’s one way to make money and sour people a bit on all such contests. I can somewhat understand the reaction of the lady who contacted the authorities. Difficult to believe anyone when your attitude has been spoiled by so much bad competition trying to appear legal/legitimate.

What another great story on one of PCH’s finest. Welcome Josh to the team at PCH. I know he has been there for a year and a half and he isn’t so new anymore but I would like to tell him welcome to the group of wonderful, giving, big hearted, hard working people of PCH Team. I won a gift card to Amazon I think it was 2 months ago and Josh must have been the one who made sure I received it. I think it would be nice to communicate with the one who is responsible for me receiving my prize from winning on PCH Games. It would be great to be able to thank him personally.
I would not only like to meet the person who had all to do with me receiving my gift card two months ago but I would love to win a prize that would allow me and my family to meet Prize Patrol. What memorable moments that all would be and what a great story that would be to tell all. I still can’t believe this all is completely free. I tell all my family and friends they are missing out on so much fun and chances to win at PCH.com and it won’t cost them anything. That is a funny story about the winner who acted like a law enforcement agent to make sure Josh was legit. I wish I could have heard that phone call. I can only imagine what was going through that winners mind when he was making that call to Josh. I have enjoyed this blog that has let me know one of PCH Employees. I would like to say Hello to you and Josh. And I would like to thank Josh for all his hard work that he does at Publishers Clearing House. Josh you are doing a Great job at PCH.
Thank You,
Jamie Sharb
