Learned a lot about securities industry
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – March 18, 2013
A typical day consisted of answering a multitude of calls from brokers and shareholders regarding various securities.
I learned a lot about the stock market including the types of corporate actions that take place etc.
Management was apathetic in terms of the stress involved for the employees.
Co-workers, for the most part, were amiable however all of one's time was spent on the phone so there wasn't much time to get to know one another.
The hardest part of the job was that it did not feel as if those in charge were backing the employees.
The salary was the best part of the job but, in my opinion, not worth the stress of the job.
30 minute lunches, employee stats were emailed to everyone daily
