NRG has a professional atmosphere
Interviewer (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 14 February 2013
This is the first job I had in an office environment. Overall, the atmosphere is very professional and efficient. This is a workplace with a very high standard in what they do (conducting surveys on behalf of various clients). They put emphasis proper etiquette when it comes to handling the respondents that we contact for data gathering. One must be polite and professional at ALL times, regardless of what type of responses one gets. You also have to develop good listening skills because you need to really listen to the respondents and what they are saying. There is also an emphasis on attendance. People with perfect attendance each month are rewarded with a certificate and at they end of each work year, there is a draw for people with excellent attendances. Prizes vary from year to year. The supervisors and managers are very nice and treat the employees and each other with the up most respect. They are also always on call to help anyone out with any issues they might have and are always putting in an effort to help the employees excel. There is a downside however. The hours are based on projects and there are times when the projects run dry. As a result shifts get canceled. No shifts, no work. Also, there is an annoying aspect called unpaid breaks where if you take a break, you are not paid for it. In my case it is half an hour. Also, they don't allow you to work overtime. But that aside, this job gave me many skills that I could transfer to another line of employment and I am glad I am a part of the team.
good atmosphere, great place to learn skills like listening and developing a professional attitude
hours can be a little unstable, unpaid breaks
